I want to understand how people are running their QA organization to support TRIRIGA implementations. What kind of automation is being used? What challenges are being faced? I’m trying to start up a discussion around QA testing for TRIRIGA.
When publishing a drawing with Xrefs, the display state of the Xref layers is not carried over to the graphics section. Meanwhile, the base drawing layers do maintain their state when published. A couple related things:
- 1. If there are no existing or active layer configurations, the default behavior seems to be that the base layers will be displayed as they were in the drawing at the time of publishing. Meanwhile, the Xref layers will all be displayed regardless of their display state at the time of publishing. Is this the intended functionality?
- 2. There does not seem to be a way to save the graphics section display of layers. When you open the graphics section, it is displayed based on the state of the last publishing. (I’ll be looking into this further and will likely open a separate L3 request. There should be a way to save the graphics section display.)
We resolved this issue by removing the code that removes the Xref layers. Now, the Xref layer states and colors, based on the main drawing, are retained when publishing a drawing. Moving forward, the Xref layer display states and colors are correctly retained when publishing to the graphics section.

We have a number of existing enterprise TRIRIGA customers who are retaining their lease data in TRIRIGA (their investment), but using a connected, low-cost, cloud-based solution for lease accounting. The good news is that it works, it’s easy, it’s lower cost, and in production today with Fortune 100 customers with large TRIRIGA investments. Let me know if you have an interest in moving into a lease accounting solution in a low-cost way, while preserving your TRIRIGA investment.
CoStar Lease Accounting Setup for ASC 842 and IFRS 16 Compliance
- 1. Connect existing lease management systems with our proprietary Data Connector. You can retain investments in existing lease systems and take advantage of our proven lease accounting functionality while avoiding the costs of upgrading enterprise software.
- 2. Migrate all existing lease data with our integrated Lease Administration System. You can upgrade existing systems to the smart choice for lease accounting and management, provide access to an unlimited amount of organizational users and departments, and save on long-term costs associated with multiple systems and upgrades.
We recently upgraded our customer to TRIRIGA 3.5.2. Thus, we had to upgrade the CAD Integrator to 22.214.171.124. Previously, when we used the Smart Attach, only 2 required fields were present: Current Use Space Class and Default Layout. But now, we have these additional required fields: Room Type, Reserve Calendar, Reserve Display Room Name, and Usage Unit. How can we turn off or disable these extra fields? The customer is not using Reserve yet.
In TRIRIGA, by default, the Reserve tab is not visible. But if the user clicks the Reservable check box in the General tab, then the Reserve tab is visible. So, the key is that the Reservable tab is not visible in the form metadata by default. Hence, CI would not consider those fields as required.
However, I assume that in your configuration, these Reserve fields are required? So, if a user creates a new space, they have to fill out the required Reserve fields before they can create it, right? CI is just attempting to emulate this situation.

In my current project, there was a suggestion to extract (updated) data from TRIRIGA, with a high frequency, and import it into some kind of data warehouse (DW) or business intelligence (BI) solution. Then, from there, perform more advanced reporting and analytics. Have other TRIRIGA solutions implemented something similar? Are there any TRIRIGA best practices or recommendations for staging area, extract-transform-load (ETL), DW, or BI reporting solutions?
