The following objects are core objects in TRIRIGA Application Platform functionality and any modifications to these objects are not supported by TRIRIGA.
Any TRIRIGA-shipped Business Objects belonging to the following Modules should not be modified. Care should also be taken in modifying any Forms, Queries and Workflows belonging to the following Modules as platform functionality can be affected. (There may be other objects not included in this list.)

I have some records in the classifications hierarchy. These classifications are now associated to several BOs, like building equipment and tasks. I want to delete some of the values in the classification hierarchy because they are values we do not want users to use in the future. I understand that the best practice is the change the status of the record to “Retire” for audit purposes. But if we decided to just delete those records, what is the impact to any of the associated BOs? Would I have to create a workflow to remove the associations?
There are certain classification records that are used in forms, workflows, and/or queries. If you delete one of these records that are used in the application, you will in effect, lose some application functionality. Take, for example, “triClauseType” (Lease Clause), where several of these classification values are used on the Lease Clause form to determine which sections of the clause to unhide.
I suggest a best practice would be to look in the Data Modeler for the business object of the classification you want to delete records on. Select the triNameTX field and click ‘Where Used’. If nothing comes back you should be pretty safe to make changes to that classifications record list (add, delete, modify). If you see any workflows, queries, forms, etc., come back as using this field, you’ll need to analyze each to determine if your business needs them. However, I’d suggest pushing back against the business and advise that the application requires the values in question.

I have come across numerous TRIRIGA clients who run their monthly lease accounting payment schedules as one single synchronous task in TRIRIGA. Often, this slows down the response times and overall environment performance considerably. Here are some simple steps to consider as recommended better/best practices for your lease accounting payment schedule run as follows:
- 1. Break up processing payments into batches that fit well with your business organizations or perhaps geographical regions.
- 2. Each of these batches can be filtered when selecting the leases to process payments for and/or before Get Payments.
Note: This will limit the number of records to process, and the load that is put on the system, and possibly, make it easier to validate payments…

Object Labels and Revisions
Starting in TRIRIGA 3.5.3, consider converting the TRIRIGA as-shipped objects that you renamed and modified back to the TRIRIGA objects from which they originated.
The purpose of the new conversion process is to enable the objects to use the new TRIRIGA object revisioning capabilities while preserving your object modifications. When you make future modifications to the objects, the modifications are saved in object revisions. Ultimately, the object revisioning and object labeling capabilities and tools aid in the future upgrade of your TRIRIGA applications.
