What is the purpose and impact of the “Localizable” field property?

I’m seeing issues within report results, where if the user profile language is in US English, the results are of one type, but if the user profile language is in German, it is showing some other data. The record while checked is the same for both cases. While opening and checking the record, the ID and name of the record varies from what it showed as a result in the report. While investigating, what we observed is that these fields are marked as “Localizable” in Data Modeler. What is the use and impact of the “Localizable” field property? Any suggestions?

Here is a PDF link to the 3.5.3 Globalization (Localization) user guide. Also, perhaps this technote on localized database storage will help provide some insight.

How do you use drawing labels for international measurements?

We manage properties globally so some of our locations are measured in Imperial and some are in Metric. What is the best way to manage this type of scenario so that our drawing and graphics section labels are not incorrectly sized when they are viewed from other global geographies?

The best way to address this situation is to have 2 sets of labels for your drawings, and 2 sets of labels for your TRIRIGA graphics section. You will need to adjust the height of the label elements to work for both situations. We are considering an enhancement to automatically scale according to the drawing units.

Why doesn’t the picker show in a smart section when editing a map?

Why doesn’t the picker show up in a smart section when doing an edit map?

The business object is not mapped correctly. If the “Map From” object is not correct for the smart section that you are trying to map to, the picker will not display in the smart section. If the smart section displays information about a people record that uses the triPeople business object, then the “Map From” BO must be of the type “triPeople”.

IV97614: Cannot revise project in Schedule tab with Gantt section

If you attempt to revise a project from the Schedule tab, where the Gantt chart is visible, your session is expired and you receive an invalid session error. The issue was observed in Internet Explorer and Chrome, but not in Firefox.

An analysis from a Fiddler trace shows that when revising the project in Chrome, this POST to GanttDataUpload.jsp seems to kill the session. In Firefox, for whatever reason, this POST doesn’t occur, and the state transition is successful. To confirm that this is the scenario you are experiencing, use the following technote to run a Fiddler trace and check for the same GanttDataUpload.jsp call: IBM TRIRIGA using Fiddler for tracing web browser traffic.

As a temporary fix, use Firefox. When the record is in a read-only state, no Save action should be called on the Gantt. Moving forward, we resolved the session-kill issue when the user performs a Revise action on a project in the Schedule tab.

Why doesn’t CAD Integrator “Smart Attach” load all the valid spaces?

Sometimes when using TRIRIGA CAD Integrator “Smart Attach”, some of the spaces are not being uploaded. There were 3D shapes around some spaces. There were values greater than 0 on z= dimension.

TRIRIGA does not support 3D polylines. You may have shapes with a value greater than zero on the z= dimension. You can find these using the AutoCAD PLIST command. To resolve this issue, it is necessary to use the AutoCAD “Flatten” command to force all polylines to be 2-dimensional. Other things to check: (1) The polylines are closed, (2) The shape and labels are on the layer you are selecting during the Smart Attach process, (3) The label is within the polyline boundary.

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.

IV97418: Data Modeler locator mapping cannot open in Firefox

When trying to edit the mapping of a locator field within Data Modeler, the spyglass next to the field does not pop up the mapping window.

Firefox did not recognize the event JavaScript object. Moving forward, the user will be able to open the Data Modeler locator mapping window in the Firefox browser.
