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 configure parameters in TRIRIGA notification content?


I’m a new TRIRIGA developer. I don’t know how the parameters are passed in the notification content. For example, for {1}, how do I pass the parameters to it? In addition, TRIRIGA develops too little material for learning and how to get useful information.

The template for the notification content record is in the Details section. To set the content, you need to use a record based on the triNotificationHelper BO in the triHelper module. There is an excellent write-up in the Application Building for the IBM TRIRIGA Application Platform 3 [PDF] user guide in the IBM Knowledge Center. Take a look at Chapter 12: Notifications.

How do you update a record with Data Integrator?


I’m trying to update a record using Data Integrator. But currently, I have no good results with this. The record is just added, not updated. I would appreciate it if you could show me an example of updating the value of an existing record for an employee’s email address below. I might not have understood the publish name, or the unique key of TRIRIGA.

  • (1) triIdTX: 1000004: This is the system generated number at record creation. I assume it’s used as the unique key. (I am not sure if it is the publish name or not.)
  • (2) triLastName: Aaaaaaaa: This is the value with the same value when creating a record.
  • (3) triFirstName: Bbbbbbbb: This is the value with the same value when creating a record.
  • (4) triEmailTX: xxxxx@yy.zz.com: It was not set when creating a record. And I want to set this value as an update value.

Also, let’s suppose that some values are already set to other fields of triPeople, but are not specified in Data Integrator.

You are correct that it’s adding a record because you’re not using the Publish Name. Take a look at the documentation in Application Building for the IBM TRIRIGA Application Platform 3: Data Management (3.4.x PDF p.35 | 3.5.2 PDF p.31). I confirmed the publish name in our latest release is the same as documented: Last Name + ‘, ‘ + First Name + ‘ – ‘ + ID.

IV94789: Set up data source before exporting data load spreadsheet


The TRIRIGA 3.5.2 “Application Building: Data Management” user guide does not indicate that the data source needs to be configured before attempting to export a Data Load spreadsheet.

The steps for “Creating a data load spreadsheet”, as listed in the 3.5.2 “Application Building: Data Management” user guide, do not indicate that before doing this, you need to set up the data source properly. In fact, there is no mention of the need to set up the data-load data source in the guide until the “Processing and loading sample data” section, which comes after the section on creating a spreadsheet.

In the “Creating a data load spreadsheet” section, the following should be inserted as Step 3:

  • 3. Ensure the data source is correctly set up for each data load item:
    • a. Select the data load item.
    • b. Select the Integration Object field.
    • c. In the Data Source section of the integration object form, modify the credentials of the database if needed.
    • d. Select the Test DB Connection link to verify that you can successfully connect to the database.
    • e. Save and close the integration object form.

The old Step 3 becomes Step 4.

IV90171: Changing users in WF Agent requires server restart


If we add or remove users from the Workflow Agent settings on process servers (as per “best practices” to only have one “open” process server and others “restricted”), we have to restart all process servers for the change to take effect.

The 3.5.0 Administrator Console user guide [PDF] does not suggest that a restart is necessary and since this is the new “best practice”, it should be dynamic rather than require a system outage every time you make this change…

How do you find the right color options with Style Manager?


Does anyone have a reference guide or working notes on the Style Manager?

I applied the TRIRIGA 3.5.0 skin to one of my environments, and wanted to change a few colors. Trial and error is horrible due to the number of options, similar names, and lack of alphabetical lists. There are also no pictures in the user guides anymore. I was hoping someone had some illustrations. The specific items I’m trying to change are highlighted…

  • Portals
    • The second-level menu background.
    • The color of the tab background.
  • Forms
    • The selected tab foreground color.
    • The outside border of the tab. With the muted color scheme, we need a little more definition, like a soft white, but we can’t find that option.

[Admin: This post is related to the 09.23.16 post about changing colors, and the 08.23.16 post and 09.30.16 post about Section 508 color-contrast compliance.]
