How do you manage document expiration in IBM TRIRIGA?


I would like to know if TRIRIGA can manage document expiration, such as building registrations, fire regulations, or other documents that are related to specific due dates. I saw the “Location” (Building, Land) object > Assessment tab, but it seems that the “Regulatory” object can only manage inspection and opportunities for the specific location. And it seems the Document Manager only acts as a “repository”. Do you have any information about document expiration?

TRIRIGA OOB has no concept of document expiration, but it could be developed and implemented very easily. You could create a scheduled event, based on an expiration date for each document. When that scheduled event is triggered, a workflow could move the document to an expired state and send a notification.

What are the best practices for Microsoft SQL Server database?


To address performance-related issues in the installation of the TRIRIGA Application, this article provides suggestions and recommendations for the IBM TRIRIGA MS SQL Server database environment. It also provides monitoring and troubleshooting steps to quickly discover and prevent performance and instability degradation… This article addresses the following key areas:

  • General best practices
  • TRIRIGA-specific recommendations
  • Performance monitoring
  • Problem resolution…

MS SQL Server performance problems can be difficult to pinpoint and require inspection into many aspects of the environment. There is no magic button or specific step-by-step actions to locate every performance issue. Instead, there are guidelines for diagnosing and troubleshooting common performance problems. This article will provide a general methodology for diagnosing and troubleshooting MS SQL Server database instability and performance problems in common scenarios.

Configuration, tuning, and sizing issues for MS SQL Server may lead to various instability and performance issues from the database end. The instructions listed below should be reviewed, confirmed, and applied by the customer’s database administrator whenever necessary… Here are some basic best practices that should be implemented on production MS SQL Server environments…

UX: How do you populate and save the data source UOM values?


I’ve defined my UX app like this:

  • Data Source Type: UOM
  • Business Object: UOM_values (UOM_values)
  • Module: System
  • UOM Type Name: Currency
  • Legacy Form: UOM_values (UOM_values)
  • Fields: _UOM_Value (Data Type: String)

My HTML code is like this:

<triplat-ds name=”currencyType” data=”{{_currencyType}}”></triplat-ds>
<triplat-select-input
value=”{{general.currencyType}}”
select-src=”{{_currencyType}}”
floating-label label=”Units *”
value-name=”_UOM_Value”>
</triplat-select-input>

My JavaScript is like this:

_onSaveTap: function() { this.$.generalDs.updateRecord().then(function() { this.$.toast.show(); }.bind(this)); }

Is there anything else required in order to populate and save the values? I want to display all options like a list and be able to save the selected currency. I can already click and display them like a list, but the first value doesn’t show up. If I do an inspect element, I can see my value fine.

If I understand your question, there are two parts to it:

  • 1) Populate UOM values similar to a list using triplat-select-input: This component was not designed to display UOM values. However, you should still be able to populate it from a UOM data source. For further filtering, you can use the filtered-data property and triplat-query-filter on the client.
  • 2) Save UOM value via a UX application: We do not provide the ability to persist or change a UOM value via the application yet. At present, we only support displaying a UOM value through the triplat-uom component.
