Can you retire a job plan to get rid of unneeded draft work tasks?


When the Operations team was changing a job plan, the wrong date was entered, and it created over 1,800 work tasks. They have since tried to retire them and they changed to Draft status. To get rid of these, can the job plan itself be retired?

IV97769: Filtering on a word in date column gives unexpected results


Filtering on a word in a date or date-time column produces unexpected results.

The platform treated any invalid string as “Today’s Date”. Moving forward, for query reports that have filters enabled, a check was added whenever a user attempts to use an invalid filter in a date or date-time field. If a non-date or non-date-time string is used in this filter, then a “No data to display” message is shown to the user in the body of the query results table, and zero results are returned.

Is there a way to get the proper date value for CBA?


Our workflow sends an outbound message by user action. For the Connector for Business Applications (CBA), the Connector user guide says:

For date values, the outbound query results include the raw values that are stored in the database and the formatted display values that are shown to the user. The displayValue node is added to the query results. The following example shows the default XML structure…

But for us, the outbound message has a different format… The <value> is presented in the same way as <displayValue> which is not acceptable because users may have a different date format. Is there a way to get the proper date value in <value> or use a single <displayValue> format for all users?

Why doesn’t dependent task go further than planned end date?


In TRIRIGA, why doesn’t my dependent task go any further than the planned end date, if I move the parent task beyond the planned end date?

The task that is being moved (along with its dependent task) eventually violates the planned end constraint. The task that is in violation of the constraint is in red, and the dependent task will not be moved past the planned end. If there is no planned end, then there is no constraint and you can freely move both tasks.

How do you run a simple Survey Fact ETL job item?


I would like to see an example of running an ETL job item, because simply running the process fails. When users see the activated record, they assume they can click “Run Process” and get results. But you need to enter a set of restraining data to get results.

Every ETL job item is different. You must fill in the record information to get the results necessary for the transformation or processing. More information can be found at the following link: IBM TRIRIGA – Running ETL transforms. This blog entry will describe a sample run of a Survey Fact ETL job item.

  1. First, from the menu, click on Tools > Job Scheduling > ETL Job Item.
  2. Then search for “Survey Fact” and open the record. It’s recommended that you click on More > Copy to create a copy that you can modify, test, and play with.
  3. After that, change the name to an friendly name and enter at least these mandatory fields: Date, Start Date, Fiscal Period, and End Date.
  4. For the Date field, take notice of the “Quarter” and “Month” to enter the other subsequent Start DateFiscal Period, and End Date.
  5. See the example for “Q2/2017 – June”. After all of the fields are entered, click Save. Then you can click Run Process.
  6. The record window will close. Then you can see “Processing” for the status of the record.
  7. After that, you can open it again and it should show “Completed” as the status. You can also click on the Workflow Instance tab to see the completed workflows.

IV97369: Typed dates do not follow user date-time preference in Gantt


Manually typed dates do not take into account the user’s date-time preference in the Gantt scheduler.

We needed to specify the EditFormat element, in addition to format, when applying the left-column metadata to the date fields. Moving forward, manually editing dates will now take into account the user’s date-time preference in Gantt.

Is there a way to track timestamps for barcodes read by mobile?


With TRIRIGA Anywhere, I was wandering is there any way to track the date/time when the asset barcode was read with a mobile device?
