How long can a password be in IBM TRIRIGA?


How long can a password be in IBM TRIRIGA?

There is no maximum password length imposed by the out-of-the-box TRIRIGA system. The encrypted password length is 500 characters. However, that encrypted length translates to about 125 characters.

What is the Report Scheduler?


Starting in IBM TRIRIGA 3.5.3, the Report Scheduler application provides administrators the ability to schedule and automate reports, queries, and external reports. Administrators can select the reports to run, setup a schedule and time, and identify who receives the reports. Once scheduled, the platform will run the reports, and send the them in an email notification as an attachment.

The application is found under Tools > System Setup > Report Scheduler.

How do you equip your TRIRIGA chariot with fierce stallions?


There’s an old metaphor originating from Plato that compares the soul to that of a chariot with a pair of winged horses. Chariots of the gods were equipped with two good horses, while us mere mortals were given one good horse and one bad, unruly horse, depicting the conflicts of the soul. Due to this imbalance, we would always face hardships. But those of us who could put that unruliness to use could potentially rise high enough to hang with the gods.

What does this have to do with IBM TRIRIGA and hanging out at TRIMAX this week? Not a whole lot, I just like to throw out fascinating metaphors. However, if you’re looking to power up your facilities “chariot” with the fiercest of good stallions, and corral the unruliness of unused data,  you may want to read on.

The five fierce stallions of 2017

When it comes to fierce stallions, why have 2 when you can have 5? And when you’re talking about investments around TRIRIGA, the more the merrier.  Here are the top 5 stallions driving the chariot of your facilities management efforts this year:

  • 1. New lease accounting standards drive compliance domination…
  • 2. Analytics help you understand the performance of your chariot…
  • 3. Cloud isn’t just for mythical gods…
  • 4. Mobility enables the business to soar from anywhere…
  • 5. User experience (UX) drives Herculean engagement…

Can you run all patch helpers (10.3 to 10.5.2) after final OM import?


We have upgraded the TRIRIGA platform to 3.5.2.3 and started upgrading the application from 10.2 to 10.5.2 in incremental order (10.3, 10.3.1, until 10.5.2). To minimize the outage and complexity during production implementation, we have been suggested to take a final OM package after completing 10.5.2 deployment, and apply all the customizations which might have been impacted with the upgrade. This final OM package will contain all the changes from 10.2 to 10.5.2.

Our question is on the patch helpers: Can we run all the patch helpers (from 10.3 to 10.5.2 in order) after importing the final OM package?

Also, we are running the Varchar-to-Numeric script before importing the application upgrade packages. This script is taking a long time (almost a day in two test environments), but when we tried in another environment, it’s running for more than 2 days and still didn’t get executed. Is it normal for this script to run like that? Or will it be an issue? There are no differences between the environments.

I wouldn’t recommend doing the upgrade in one package. Usually, it ends up being quite large and it will cause issues. The IBM-recommended way is to perform each OM, then run the patch helpers. Once you have upgraded the OOB OM packages, you can have one OM which has your custom objects…

UX: How do you put a conditional check in TRIRIGA UX view?


I am new to the IBM TRIRIGA UX framework. My requirement is: “If a user contains a profile image, then display the uploaded image, or else, display the default image.” How can I put this conditional check inside the view.html page?

This doesn’t have an “else” condition, therefore just inverse your condition in another “dom-if”.

<template is=”dom-if” if=”{{condition()}}”>displayed when condition() is true

</template>

How do you set the report filter for last (previous) month?


I want to create a report and set the filter for last month. When I want to add a condition, it opens the token list with values. Is there any chance I can update that token list? Or does anyone know how to set the filter for the last (previous) month?

Try $$THISMONTH$$-1. You can use operators with the relative time periods for query filters.
