Is there an IBM TRIRIGA preview site?

Public Beta

IBM TRIRIGA hosts a public beta for review and evaluation of our upcoming releases. You can access the site here. There is a very simple registration application that you must fill out, in order to gain access. That registration application can be found here (username: beta, password: signup).

We also have a public Slack channel to which you can request access, where you can engage development of new and upcoming features, as well as gain early previews of release notes and support matrices.

The IBM TRIRIGA beta is going to be refreshed to start our 3.5.3/10.5.3 beta on December 29th, and will be available again by January 3rd. During the refresh, the beta server will be unavailable.  All previous user accounts will be removed, and registration will be required again to create new accounts and access the beta.

SaaS Demo

There’s also an IBM TRIRIGA demo site where you don’t have to register. Our TRIRIGA SaaS or “cloud” version has a viewable demo here.

How do you set up a notification workflow with external mail?

According to the release notes for 10.5:

“A new ‘External Mail From’ smart section is added to Notification BO and Form. The smart section is defined against triPeopleLink BO. The Notification workflow should be setup so that this section will be populated with the sender (From user) information. Also the email notification will look like it is coming from the user who sent it instead of the TRIRIGA System. (Tri-168369)”

When I perform a “Where Used” on the name and email fields in this section, it shows that they are not being used by any workflows. In other words, the section has been added to the notification form, but is not currently being populated from anywhere.

Does anybody know if this is working as designed? The wording of the release note is a bit ambiguous. I’m not sure if “the workflow should be set up” means we are supposed to configure this ourselves, or if it should be working OOB. Any guidance is much appreciated!

For this new feature to be implemented, any Notification workflow that sends an email will need to be modified to populate the sender (From user). The “From user” is not set by default.

Why aren’t images replicated among multiple app servers?

Sometimes, customers find that images are created in one record, such as the employee record, in one of the application servers, but not on the other servers. Although all of the other information in the records are replicated just fine between servers, no images appear in one or more of the application servers.

This occurs in any TRIRIGA environment up to 3.4.2.x with 2 or more application servers, because the images are stored in the userfiles/images or userfiles/Company-1 directories on the application server. The workaround is to replicate the file system between the servers. The best scenario is to upgrade the platform to 3.5.0 or later. In 3.5.0, the images were moved to the database, so there is no need to replicate the file system. This is stated in the 10.5.0 Release Notes.

Can you use TRIRIGA 3.4.2 with IE running in Compatibility View?

Will IBM TRIRIGA Platform 3.4.2 work with Microsoft IE running in Compatibility View? I want to know if I can run Microsoft Internet Explorer in Compatibility View when using IBM TRIRIGA 3.4.2.

For IBM TRIRIGA Platform 3.4.2, Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE) is not supported when running in Compatibility View. This is a known, documented, and expected limitation for our IBM TRIRIGA 3.4.2 platform code, deployed due to security reasons. This is documented in the Release Notes [PDF] document for IBM TRIRIGA 3.4.2, Known Limitations… “Internet Explorer is no longer supported if Compatibility View Settings are enabled.” There is no plan for supporting this compatibility mode back in. But there are some alternatives for this scenario…
