UX: What licenses are required to develop UX Perceptive apps?


I have installed the IBM TRIRIGA application platform and it is up and running. Next, I want to develop Perceptive apps. What licenses do I need to develop Perceptive apps? Can I get a sample link or resource to start any sample apps?

What open-source libraries are used in the IBM TRIRIGA platform?


IBM has been recognized by many within the open-source community as a leader in open-source technology, and believes that our leadership in open source is a differentiating value for our clients. There are very many advantages in including the right open-source libraries and an extremely small number of disadvantages. Please read “IBM’s approach to open technology” for a complete understanding of IBM’s commitment to open source.

Within the IBM TRIRIGA Platform, we use over 125 different open-source libraries and packages to enhance the deliverable. A full listing of these libraries, and their accompanying licenses can be found in the notices.txt file under the \license\ directory of every TRIRIGA Platform install.

How do you disable the project context for the WPM license?


We’re testing TRIRIGA Platform 3.5.3 and we noticed a difference in the (project context) “Company/Project” toggle visibility. The users have access to the license “IBM TRIRIGA Workplace Performance Management Projects” and it now displays the toggle option (it didn’t display before). When we remove this license, the toggle disappears. Is this new behavior documented anywhere? I did some research and I couldn’t find anything. Is there a way to remove this option for specific groups?

How do you configure rights for admin to create new workflows?


Is there a way to configure the rights for an admin account to create new workflows in Workflow Builder?

The user must have the LICENSE_IBM_TRIRIGA_Application_Builder license. This license is required to create a new workflow or BO. The core licenses can modify workflows and BOs, but not create new ones.

Why does running the ETL job for energy logs fail?


I know that TRIRIGA SaaS comes with predefined ETL jobs, and one of them is energy log fact. I have some energy logs on some buildings. However, all of my attempts to run the ETL job for energy logs have failed. Is there any missing parameter for me to add to make this work? I did try adding triEnvEnergyItem as a BO name, but no luck.

The ETLs each require different inputs depending on the ETL. Since, in general, ETL processing is a background process and runs through the scheduler, you would need to look in the server.log to see what the ETL needs if you are running it directly from the ETL Job form. You would also need to make sure that you have a license that allows you to run the ETLs, which would be a license that grants privileges to “Technology Metrics”.

Maybe this link will help: ETL and Metric Query Troubleshooting.

IV97599: “Grant Security Access” workflow does not filter properly


The “Grant Security Access – MASSUPDATE” workflow does not filter the groups and licenses correctly, because various tasks in this workflow are not set correctly.

The “Update Records” action on the Grant Security Access form was creating a duplicate of Groups/Licenses on People and My Profile records if the Groups/Licenses selected were the same as the ones added on People and My Profile. Moving forward, we resolved the issue by modifying the workflow “Grant Security Access – MASSUPDATE” to not create any duplicate Groups/Licenses if they are already added to People and My Profile. We also fixed another issue, to create new Groups if the “Clear Existing Security?” check box is checked.

How do you know if a license is needed to see a form or portal?


Sometimes, a user that supposedly has licenses for a form or portal is not able to see the form or portal. So how do you determine if some license is missing, or if the licenses you have are enough? This question often comes up when users start reporting that they cannot access portions of the application and call in to complain.

The best way to check it is to login as an Admin user, and follow these instructions:

  • Go to Tools > Administration > License Manager.
  • Click on the “Matrix View”.
  • Use the browser’s “find” function to look for the form or business object.
  • The necessary licenses are marked with a check (or R for read-only).

[Admin: The same article is also posted in the IBM Support Portal as a technote. This post is related to the 02.08.16 post about finding information on TRIRIGA licenses. To see other related posts, use the License tag.]
