UX: Where can you find the TRIRIGA UX component documentation?


Component API documentation for developing applications with UX Framework is deployed with your TRIRIGA server. Component documentation can be accessed via the following endpoint:

  • http[s]://[tririga-hostname:port][/context_path]/p/web/doc
  • The [tririga-hostname:port] and [/context_path] are the specific values you’d normally use to access your IBM TRIRIGA environment.

Once at the component documentation page, you can browse or search the TRIRIGA delivered components that are available on your specific platform version using the left-hand panel. Further down in the list, you can find documentation for the available third-party components delivered with the corresponding version of Google Polymer. (This version varies, based on the TRIRIGA platform version. See the Support Matrix for more information.)

In the right hand panel, the documentation provides information about the selected component, generally with sample usage, styling and an API reference. In some cases, there are also demos available. You can toggle between the Doc and the Demo for a component using the buttons in the top right of the page…

IV94250: Popup behind form when opening task from Gantt in IE11


In IE11, when you open a task directly from the Gantt chart, the popup window opens behind the Project form.

With the TreeGrid API, we needed to suppress all next actions to resolve focus issues with IE. Moving forward, an issue has been fixed in IE where the Task popup window appears behind the Gantt Project form.

IBM InterConnect 2017 Bootcamp labs developers shouldn’t miss


When learning about new technologies and tools, it often helps to get one’s hands just a little bit dirty and see what really makes them work. That’s the idea behind the new Bootcamp labs at IBM InterConnect 2017, March 19-23 in Las Vegas.

These instructor-led labs run 3 to 4 hours, giving enrollees the opportunity to do hands-on work with new products and technologies. Attendees can find a deeper dive in these sessions led by subject matter experts…

IoT Platform to Maximo/TRIRIGA hands-on lab

Thursday, 8:30 AM – 12:15 PM, Mandalay Bay South Seas I1, Session ID: 7436A

This lab offers attendees a basic understanding of how connected operations work. Use a simulated temperature sensor (a gauge meter in Maximo) to send a temperature reading to the Internet of Things (IoT) Quickstart. The message is then sent to NODE-RED, which parses the message. When a reading changes, it goes into a REST-API call that inserts the meter reading into the referenced asset meter readings. The reading updates the measure point and triggers a work order using Maximo functionality, or if one chooses to do so, using a TRIRIGA work task…

Is there a way to refresh exported IBM Watson Analytics data in 3.5.2?


Is there a way to re-export an IBM Watson Analytics dataset and have it refresh rather than create new data? I haven’t refined the data in Watson, just testing after doing a TRIRIGA 3.5.2 upgrade. I exported a dataset from TRIRIGA, waited a day, exported again, and it shows as a second item in Watson.

This is an issue, because there are now discovery sets apparently pointing to the first data import, so the new data isn’t showing up. I don’t see a way to re-point the discovery set, and would prefer to not recreate after going into the new data. Am I overlooking something?

Unfortunately, there is no way for the TRIRIGA Connector for Watson Analytics to refresh or append to an existing dataset, because that capability was not available in the Watson Analytics API when we were developing the TRIRIGA Connector. It’s a good RFE candidate once supported by Watson Analytics and I encourage you to submit a request for enhancement (RFE) under “IBM TRIRIGA Platform”. Also, a good source of information is the Watson Analytics forum.

Where can you find information about the IBM TRIRIGA Connector for Watson Analytics (CWA)?


You can use the IBM Watson Analytics service to discover patterns and meanings in your data. Watson Analytics guides data discovery and predictive analytics by using automatic visualizations and enables dashboard creation so that you can get insights and make informed decisions.

By using Watson Analytics, you can add and tune data, discover insights to help solve your business problems, and display your findings. You pair Watson Analytics with data from IBM TRIRIGA to explore your integrated workplace management processes and obtain new insights on your day to day operations. You use TRIRIGA Connector for Watson Analytics to export TRIRIGA data of your choice into Watson Analytics.

Is a timeout error causing CI LISP API commands to return nil?


We are using LISP commands to attach and publish CAD drawings according to the API specification on this TRIRIGA wiki page. Each command should normally return the value T if it has completed successfully. When attaching or publishing two of our CAD drawings, the LISP command returned nil instead of the expected value T…

Is the timeout error causing those LISP commands to return nil? It is worth noting that each of these two drawings took more than one minute to complete the respective command, likely due to the drawings’ complexity. Has anyone encountered this error? Is there any way we could configure the timeout value for LISP commands?

Yes, and there is a timeout factor of one minute. This is not currently configurable. I’d suggest opening a request for enhancement (RFE) for this situation at the very least.
