Re: Ask the Expert: D2 Configuration options, Matrix selection & Plugin Development

Hi,

Thanks for this expert discussion platform.

I would typically want to know the best practices for deployment strategies for D2-Config from a souce repository to the target.

After an initial rollout with full import with config reset, future changes shouldn't delete all live configurations

But for subsequent releases following are challenges

1) Dictionaries and taxonomy cannot be sent again as the widget is exposed to certain users and doesn't need to be overriden from source values

2) If option full config without actual config reset is used, it does not manage all the checkboxes in the matrix

   a) Its not clear either will it switch all checkboxes, or just add new config check boxes Or do nothing

   b) For configuration / contexts that are deleted, howw those will be handled

   c) Will override option, both override the configuration and its associated check boxes in the matrix?

   d) In which deployment option do we need to take care of Public Searches in the target environment?

3) Also if a context is added and then deleted in D2-Config, the numbers of the each context in the internal xml is changed and hence reported in D2 Specification comparisons which is not entirely correct as nothing has changed

 

Regards,

Anurag

Re: Ask the Expert: D2 Configuration options, Matrix selection & Plugin Development

Hello experts,

What is the best way for creating a docbase session in a D2 external widget  for the current connected D2 user ?

Is it possible to re-used the current D2 session and not create a new one (using a dm ticket we can pass through the D2 hub) ? Do we have to create our own session manager on external widget side ?

Re: Ask the Expert: D2 Configuration options, Matrix selection & Plugin Development

Hi Jeremy,

D2 4.0 included the ability to configure external widget URLs with $LOGIN and $TICKET to enable the widget to log in. However resulting ticket will expire in 5 Min.

With D2 4.2 P02

For widgets using hub events we have added

     D2_ACTION_DM_TICKET_GENERATE and

     D2_EVENT_DM_TICKET_GENERATED

to allow widgets to create fresh tickets

Hope this answer your question and let me know if you need any additional information.

Thank you

Pinal Shah

Re: Ask the Expert: D2 Configuration options, Matrix selection & Plugin Development


Ok Pinal, Let me know when you have additional news on my previous post on deployment.

I also wanted to know, Can all auditable events be configured for emails from Tools -> Emails? I don't think so its working for me on events like d2_refused_task etc which are just audited and do not generate a queue item.

Is there a list for events which only can be used for email notification?

How to configure emails for normal auditable events

Thanks in advance.

Re: Re: Ask the Expert: D2 Configuration options, Matrix selection & Plugin Development

!

1) Actually, the best practice IS to do a full reset.  That is why you have a test/dev environment and production.  Changes that are needed are made in test/dev and then applied (via config/reset) into production.

2) If option full config without actual config reset is used, it does not manage all the check boxes in the matrix

      a) Its not clear either will it switch all checkboxes, or just add new config check boxes Or do nothing

                D2 Mergers the check box if you select option to import config without actual reset.

      b) For configuration / contexts that are deleted, how those will be handled

             Deleted from Prod and then an import of config from Dev?  Import will result in config being added back.             

               Or Deleted from Dev and then config imported into Prod?    Config will remain in Prod.

     c) Will override option, both override the configuration and its associated check boxes in the matrix?

                Overwrite configuration, overwrites the configuration it has nothing to do with check boxes in matrix.

                 Include imported modules relative matrix switches is the option to select to allow the import matrix switches to be                                          applied/merged  with existing matrix switches

     d) In which deployment option do we need to take care of Public Searches in the target environment?

               If I understand your question correctly…

               If you do a full config with reset then as the warning dialog box indicates, it will reset public searches.

               Public searches are user created searches.  If you want to retain these then you would first export them from Production, import                     your dev/test config with full reset, then import the public searches you had exported.  Public searches are saved in a search.xml.

Hope this will clarify.

Re: Ask the Expert: D2 Configuration options, Matrix selection & Plugin Development

Hi Anurag

You are right you cannot configure audit-able events to get notification.

Only workflow related events mentioned below you can configure notification.

dm_startedworkitem","Rendition Error","Job_Failure","Agent_Exec_Failure","DM_SYSADMIN",

  "dm_selectedworkitem","dm_completedworkitem","dm_reassignedworkitem","dm_changedactivityinstancestate",

  "dm_delegatedworkitem","dm_startworkflow","dm_terminateworkflow","dm_abortworkflow",

  "dm_changestateworkflow","dm_changeworkflowsupervisor","dm_changestateactivity","dm_changestateprocess");

Hope this answer your question

Thank you
