A cool addition to IAM would be a task that allows you to disable all objects for a specific role which can not be accessed from within the application. This will allow you to disable objects that the user in theory could/should never be able to access.This will help prevent that users by accident have rights to tables which they should not have access to in the first place.They will not access the tables using the GUI but will be able to access them using a tool like MS SQL Management Studio or Indicium. This task will help you prevent this.
Currently the Filter options in the GUI do not allow you to check the values of columns based upon other columns. In some cases you would like to set a filter based upon the values of a specific column.For example I would like to select all records (orders) of which the delivery date is equal to the records it's order date. Currently the GUI does not allow you to set such a filter.
When you are using quite a few tile groups, you will have to use the scroll option within this menu often. However after opening a subject, the tile menu automatically be reset to the left side. I personally think this is incorrect. The menu should store the scroll position. Who is with me on this!
The Software Factory offers a solution in which you can configure unit tests for various functionalities/procedures. You are capable of comparing an expected output of your procedure with an actual output. This is a great way to verify whether changes within your current version might have broken this procedure/functionality.However several procedures use the GETDATE() option. This will lead to the fact that the actual output will never by equal to the expected output, since this was using a different date (and or time) stamp. I would like to be able to overrule the GETDATE() statement within my code into a preset date/time. When this is possible I will be able to compare the expected an actual output properly for these kind of procedures/functionalities.
If you are using a Windows GUI, which is connected to the database using the Indicium Basic, to use any form of single sign on?Currently I have set this up for a client of mine. They will have to insert their username or email address and password. But their Windows Credentials match their account in IAM. So you would kind of expect that the Authentication option MSWINDOWS would be available when using the Indicium Basic as your server. Is there any way to set this up?
A feature which would be a great help to me is an option to switch between lookup/element values and database values. Obviously you would like to see the lookup column and translated elements within a screen. However sometimes, for debugging, you would like to switch to seeing the database values instead. This will allow you to quickly determine the ID's for all lookup columns and see the database value for the domain elements. You can use these values for further debugging using SQL scripts.You could implement this option in the developers tab in the ribbon.
Currently the Software Factory offers several options to automatically refresh data on your screen, such as the following:You can set the auto refresh based on a specified time You can refresh it by implementing a processflow that upon activating a specific document the document is also refreshedThe first option is an option which is pretty simple to configure for multiple screens. The second option will cost you allot of time, if you need to set this up for several screens. I keep running into cases where I need to implement the second option for allot of screens. Therefor I would like to request a checkbox for the second feature on the table (variant), similar to the checkbox available for refresh option one.So in summary, I would like a checkbox on table/variant level to automatically refresh the table when activating it as a document.
Is there a way to disable the column label in a tree that is based upon grouped columns?For some reason the GUI automatically displays the label of the field which it is grouped by. But this is often not something you would like it to display. So I was wondering if I can disable this label?
A question I am getting more often of my clients is whether the Software Factory support an information text field. This is a field that contains an informative message for the users.Currently the Software Factory only supports these message in tooltips and Helptexts. But often you would like to set up a text to inform users. This text should be displayed on a specific position on the form. It is kind of like a regular. However this field does not have to be stored in the database. And it should only display a text (HTML text).So it is kind of a HTML field. Currently you can set up an expression field and insert a hardcoded HTML code in this field. But often you would like this field to show a text based on the language of the specific user.Therefor it would a great feature if the Software Factory offers a field that will display a label and the content of the field, which is an HTML text that can be configured in the translations part of the Software Factory. This will allow you to co
When you setup your Universal GUI to startup using the Software Factory by default no translations are being loaded.I would like to be able to display my translations when starting the Universal GUI while using the Software Factory as a source. I have seen other people being able to set this up but do not know how.How can you set this up?
Since SF suite 2019.1 roles have to be configured from within the Software Factory, instead of the IAM application. In order to test your role configuration, it is possible to set a specific role within a run time configuration. What I would like, is the option to set multiple roles within a run time configuration. In most cases you would to test a set of roles combined, instead of a single role.
This is an Archived topic. The solution is available in the Thinkstore inside the Software Factory.GoalSending emails from within your application is a common feature and can be implemented in many ways. However the traceability of sending emails from your application is often difficult. Therefor it is very usefully to gain some insights into which emails have been sent to whom and whether the email has exactly been sent. This topic demonstrates a basic setup for gaining insight into your email traffic. SolutionFirst of you will have to set up some tables. This example will also contain tables used by the Thinkwise Reporting Service. This topic will allow you to email attachments created by the Thinkwise Reporting Service. This topic will not explain how the configure sending emails with a template. If you would to know how to do that, look at this topic: Example email module. Create the following tables (if you do not use the Thinkwise Reporting Service, ignore the reporting_service_r
All of you, that have worked with Microsoft Azure, have probably noticed that Azure does not allow you to mutate or select data from a different database than the transaction database. However often you find yourself in a situation where this is necessary. This blog will help you with exactly that. This blog describes 2 features which you can use.Feature 1 External DatasourceMicrosoft SQL has a feature available called “External Datasource”. This feature supports selecting data from an external source, but does not require to connect to this external source. It is kind of like a fake table within your database, which selects data from the defined external source. While using an External Datasource it is possible to select data from another database within Azure. Do keep in mind that it is not (yet) possible to mutate data using an External Datasource. If you would like to mutate data on a different database, you have to use the second option this blog will describe.How to configure an
Currently there is no tab available which allows you to see all task and report parameters in a single grid. Sometimes you have to change name which is being used throughout your entire model. This means the change will also have to be implemented in all the tasks and reports. In that case you would to filter on all task and report parameters of this name. This is currently not possible and if made possible, will be of great help.Is it possible to enable the detail tabs task parameters and report parameters within the full model screen?
Hey everyone,I would like to migrate from the Basic Indicium to the Universal Indicium. I am currently using the Basic Indicium for interfacing with another system through the web. Does the Universal Indicium support the full API interfacing features which the Basic Indicium supports? And are there any differences between those 2 types of Indicium that I should take into consideration when switching from the Basic to the Universal Indicium?
For tasks there is a checkbox allowing you the auto disable a task when the context is empty. I was planning on using this for a report. Unfortunately I was shocked to find out that this checkbox has not been implemented for reports. I would really like this checkbox to be available on reports
Enable prefilter screenCompleted
Currently prefilters can only be accessed throughout a table. I would to be able to see all prefilters within a grid and be able to change them throughout this screen. Having this will enable me to check all prefilters queries at once, or edit them with mass update. Can the tab prefilters be enabled within the full model screen?
Currently when adding or editing a domain, changing the datatype leads to several default settings, which could be useful. For example, choosing the datatype nvarchar(max), leads to setting the control to multi line and form field height to 3. Next to that, changing the datatype of an existing domain, which already had a control set to it, leads to setting the control to null. Personally I’am not to fond of this response. For example say you need to change a datatype from a tiny into a small int. This will lead to setting the control back to null (without informing the user). This could lead to a change with huge consequences. I would prefer that the datatype does not set any of these settings by default. Also the form field height is very often not required to be more then 1 when using a nvarchar(max). The same goes for the control multi-line. It would be of great help, if this setting could be disabled.
Currently within the Tasks and Reports items a user has the option to quick add a reference (and lookup) by using the task "Create lookup-reference". This is a good and quick way to set up an additional (parameter) with a lookup. I was wondering why such an option hasn't been added to the "column add screens" within the datamodel modeller. This could really save me a lot of time, when setting up tables that included columns with a lookup reference. Instead of having to go through all the steps: open the design tab, enable both tables and manually draw a reference between both tables, I could simply just run this task. It will automatically add my required columns and set up the reference with the preferred lookup.
Maintain project version destinationCompleted
Files used by an application, say images, reports etc., are store in a specific folder. In most cases the location of this folder is different for the development environment then it is for the production environment. IAM provides a task the update all the file links within a project version. This is a useful feature. However I would like this feature the store the altering made to the path (difference between development and production). Currently you have to update this path each time you synch a version, whether this is a new or already existing version. In my opinion this is redundant. IAM should be able to store the altering made within the path to set it the right path used in the production environment. Therefor automatically update the path upon synchronizing the next time.
Currently when an idea, which I have submitted, undergo's a status change, I'm not informed about this status change. Personally, I would prefer to receive a notification of this status change. Is it possible to configure the community so that a user, like myself, receives a status update when an idea's, or its status, is changed? If this is not currently possible, it would be of great help to add this feature.
Filter in tree componentDuplicate
Currently when user uses a filter within our tree component, the GUI will only display rows matching the filter value. I would like to tree component to display all the parents of the row matching the filter value and the rows matching the filter value, instead of only displaying the rows matching the filter value.
Currently the Software Factory offers no setting to enable or disable “Excel Style” filtering. Whether this option is enabled, is determined based on the Filter and Sort settings. I would like to enable or disable “Excel Style” filtering regardless of the Filter and Sort settings.For example: I have a row which display an amount or margin. I would like to sort on this column. I cannot allow “Excel Style” filtering for this column, because the amount of unique values exceeds the amount the “Excel Style” filtering can handle, the result is an application freeze. Therefor I would like to be able to disable “Excel Style” filtering.
When configuring Prefilter rights for specifics roles, there is an option named Data authorization prefilter, which determines whether a prefilter is always active and locked. I myself and other developers I have worked with, find this name a little confusing. Therefor I’am looking for a better name for this option. This topic has been created to determine whether this name might have to be changed. If so, which name is the preferred name?
