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.

UX: How do you access smart section fields on triPeopleLink BO?


We have a smart section listing the user permissions on a BO in the classic forms view that we need to access from the UX framework. I saw some posts about smart section BOs in the beta Slack channel from late August last year.

But I cannot get it to work with the suggested method, since the field I am looking for is in the triPeopleLink BO (triPeople module), yet the association to the record is to the triPeople BO (triPeople module). Does anyone have an idea on how to access this smart section data located in the triPeopleLink BO?

The UX Framework does not provide the functionality to achieve that yet. You can open a request for enhancement (RFE) for that functionality.

How do you delete or unpublish a floor plan in IBM TRIRIGA?


I have a question that has bothered me for a while. I needed to attach a floor plan to Building A, but by mistake, I attached it to Building B. I noticed the mistake, detached the floor plan from Building B, and attached it correctly to Building A.

However, in TRIRIGA, Building B is still showing the floor plan. I don’t know how to delete it. Building B should have no floor plan, and it should show “no graphics available”. How can I make Building B correct?

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.
