Can you run all patch helpers (10.3 to 10.5.2) after final OM import?

We have upgraded the TRIRIGA platform to and started upgrading the application from 10.2 to 10.5.2 in incremental order (10.3, 10.3.1, until 10.5.2). To minimize the outage and complexity during production implementation, we have been suggested to take a final OM package after completing 10.5.2 deployment, and apply all the customizations which might have been impacted with the upgrade. This final OM package will contain all the changes from 10.2 to 10.5.2.

Our question is on the patch helpers: Can we run all the patch helpers (from 10.3 to 10.5.2 in order) after importing the final OM package?

Also, we are running the Varchar-to-Numeric script before importing the application upgrade packages. This script is taking a long time (almost a day in two test environments), but when we tried in another environment, it’s running for more than 2 days and still didn’t get executed. Is it normal for this script to run like that? Or will it be an issue? There are no differences between the environments.

I wouldn’t recommend doing the upgrade in one package. Usually, it ends up being quite large and it will cause issues. The IBM-recommended way is to perform each OM, then run the patch helpers. Once you have upgraded the OOB OM packages, you can have one OM which has your custom objects…

Is anyone using automated testing tools with TRIRIGA 10.5.3?

Is anyone using automated testing tools with TRIRIGA 10.5.3? I’m trying to use C# and Selenium to run automated test cases and I’m running into problems locating elements that I can control. Specifically, I’m having difficulty grabbing elements inside of tables for leases where there are no IDs. I’ve tried using XPath, but I keep getting “Element not found” errors.

IV96845: Ability to bypass security and use unauthorized functions

Testers found that they had the ability to add reports to the My Reports page in TRIRGA, even though the links for New, Copy, Delete, Copy as Community Report, and Share Report were not present for the read-only users.

Moving forward, an privilege escalation issue in Report Manager has been resolved.

How are you running your QA organization to support TRIRIGA?

I want to understand how people are running their QA organization to support TRIRIGA implementations. What kind of automation is being used? What challenges are being faced? I’m trying to start up a discussion around QA testing for TRIRIGA.

Is there a way for the “Component ID” to stay permanent in TRIRIGA?

In TRIRIGA, the Component ID for a field changed after upgrading. For example, in TRIRIGA 3.5/10.5, the Component ID for the “User ID” text box on the login page was: textbox(“User Name”). But in 3.5.2/10.5.2, it changed to: textbox(“User ID”). This is impacting our automation test. Each time we upgrade to a new version, we need to check and change our automation test script. Is it possible to keep these Component ID values fixed?

Are file attachments in Outlook also attached in SMTP messages?

In the context of TRIRIGA Reservation Management (Reserve), if a user attaches a file in a meeting invitation (in Outlook) while booking a room, is that file going to be attached in the SMTP message that is sent to TRIRIGA? Has anyone tested this or have the ability to test this?

The concern is around confidentiality. If someone attaches a company confidential document and the message is sent over SMTP (non-secure) to IBM Cloud (TRIRIGA SaaS) with the attachment, the document was now exposed to the public internet.

In your scenario, the Send connector configured in Exchange is responsible for sending the message to TRIRIGA. I believe that, by default, the Send connector will also send attachments. There may be some configuration on the Exchange side that prevents or limits a particular Send connector from forwarding attachments.

Is there a way to (OM) migrate integration object records?

Is it possible to (OM) migrate integration object records? I’ve created two integration objects in my Dev environment. But I’m not sure which BO to use to (OM) migrate my two records to my Test environment.
