IV94359: Changing the basemap resets the map zoom

When you change the basemap after the map is initially rendered, this causes the map to maximize and show the entire extent, instead of the original location that is centered on the building.

When you zoom into a Esri map with one pin, the record is fully zoomed in. The issue was that the max zoom level being used when a map initially zooms to a pin is too extreme, and not usable. Moving forward, we resolved an EsriJS issue where the initial zoom for GIS maps containing one pin was too extreme. The initial zoom has been scaled back to a more usable level.

How do you handle the special character “%” in an OSLC query?

We have defined a OSLC query capability that takes the name in the query parameter, and tries to find the exact match in the system. Everything works okay with the proper encoding in the string, except one scenario where the string identifier carries the special character “%” in it, for example, “XYZ 50%”.

In such cases, with “%” in the string identifier, the TRIRIGA application is responding with results based on the pattern matched against the string identifier, instead of the exact match. From what I understand from encoding HTTP is that it converts “%” to “%25”. So TRIRIGA OSLC uses “%25” for its pattern search. Has anyone encountered such behavior? How do you handle this?

IV94360: GIS section does not fit to full height on GIS tab of building

The GIS section height could be expanded since there is a lot of white space at the bottom of the screen.

The issue is that about a quarter of an inch of white space was appearing at the bottom of the GIS map. This fix drastically reduces the amount of white space at the bottom of the map. In doing this, this fix also needed to specially handle a scroll bar that was appearing on Firefox due to the reduced white space. A scroll bar is only needed on the map when the Show Options tab or Show Table tab are being shown. We now programmatically set the scroll bar to either “auto” or “hidden” when those tabs are toggled.

How do you access documents in TRIRIGA Document Manager via URL?

Can I access a document stored in the IBM TRIRIGA database via a URL address? I need to get some documents out of a valid IBM TRIRIGA session.

The IBM TRIRIGA platform stores documents in binary large object (BLOB) fields. They are not available in typical operating-system folder or directory structures. To access these documents, you need to login to IBM TRIRIGA and open the Document Manager. There is no direct URL to get into the BLOB field. The document is stored in a way that it cannot be read from a regular browser. You need to use Document Manager to read the documents stored in these BLOB fields. Some forms may have links to Document Manager that load specific documents from BLOB fields.

If the company uses an ECM that supports CMIS, such as Documentum or IBM FileNet Content Manager, you can enable the CMIS in the TRIRIGA Application Platform so that files and folders can be managed by using the TRIRIGA Document Manager and then stored in the ECM. You enable CMIS by setting the CMIS properties in the TRIRIGAWEB.properties file, either on the server or in the IBM TRIRIGA Administrator Console. You must restart the server for the changes to the TRIRIGAWEB.properties file to take effect. After CMIS is enabled, the ECM administrator can proceed to configure the ECM settings as necessary…

How do you remove Area Overlay mappings in CAD Integrator?

By mistake, in TRIRIGA CAD Integrator, I created some Area Overlay mappings. Now I’m stuck with it. Does anyone know how to remove these areas? I tried to retire them, but it’s not working.

You can delete or remove the associations to these objects in TRIRIGA.

Area Overlays are just another business object in TRIRIGA, and what you’re seeing there are records you created which are instances of that object, that are associated to your floor. If you go to the Floor record in TRIRIGA (whichever floor you’re linked to), you’ll see a tab called Allocation, and then Area Overlays is a section there which allows you to remove them. 

[Admin: The same question is also posted in the main Application Platform forum.]

IBM Watson Analytics for real estate and facility managers

In November, we announced the launch of our TRIRIGA Connector for Watson Analytics – letting business professionals and facility managers easily integrate their TRIRIGA buildings data directly into Watson Analytics…

Self-service analytics: The answer to the data skills-gap

Today, getting access to the information you need to run your business probably means working across a number of different roles and teams: IT to get you access to your data, business analysts to help make sense of your data, and data scientists to help build predictive models. But the time and cost associated with getting the insights you need to solve daily problems can be prohibitive…

This is where Watson Analytics comes in. The easy-to-use interface is designed with business users in mind, enabling guided data discovery, predictive analytics and automatic visualization. For real estate and facility managers, Watson Analytics with TRIRIGA is your data scientist in a box…

How will you use your new insights?

The cognitive power of Watson Analytics allows it to uncover important and unexpected insights hidden in your data. You may uncover energy usage trends that you didn’t know were impacting your bottom line, or use Watson Analytics to reduce under utilized space and help lower your cost per square foot.

By exploring lease data, you might predict future capacity and achieve standards compliance. Or you may drill into your maintenance data for insights that will reduce operations costs and simplify service delivery…
