Hi, When a technician login into smart client or webclient. He should only see the task which are assigned to him not all the task assigned to his access group.Is that possible in Smart client that only task related to a person_id can be seen?
Hi All, I have an issue with configuring automatic Time Clocks to the TASK table.Please find the attachment of the Time Clocks screen to see how I have configured the settings. I have configured these settings to record a NPU (Labor and Expenses) according to the status of the task. This was configured in the FSM 6 CMB Smart Client, and it didn’t work on this environment (It simply did nothing, there were no errors) but it worked on the FSM 6 US Smart Client. Kindly let me know the correct steps to setup automatic Time Clocks and why this was working fine in US environment but not in CMB environment.Thank you Best regards,Geeth
Is it possible to show public holidays/non-working days (f.ex sundays) as a different color in the datepicker?Marked days are non-working days and public holidays, and we would like to have these in another color/greyed out/etc. to indicate to the user that the day is not selectable.This applies to all datepickers, and should follow a specific calendar.
(FSM 6) We’re making some changes to data visibility in FSM and are trying to set all Tasks to be in the same Access Group as their parent Request - even when the parent Request updates. The predefined business rules for setting Access Groups (67, 70) only fire before insert/update for their associated tables. This means a Request’s Access Group may change and the Task won’t follow it. Those rules seem the only way to change the Access Group of a record in FSM - meaning I can’t just make a custom rule that updates that column. I could make a custom rule that updates a userdef on the child Task when its parent Request is updated to trigger the appropriate predefined rule but that seems hacky. Am I missing a better approach to this or some key understanding of how the rules behave? Would rather write a hacky rule than change how we’re using the fields because that would break some of our reporting, but if I can avoid creating a new rule entirely - even better!
Hello, We are trying to put together the xml maps for an outgoing message. In this message we want to send the result of an integration function (with different inputs) in two different tags: The expected result is “ok” for the AtewlsNotes - result of the first process - and “notok” for CheckNetworkChange/Code - result of the second process.However what we obtain it the following: It seems that the result of the second process is being stored in the first tag.Is this the right behaviour? Kind Regards,Joana Machado
Hi there are there any known issues with regards to MS Server updates impacting the Reporting function of FSM6u16? In our Dev environment running Reports and using the Print button worked fine Our servers were patched over the weekend and on Monday running a report or click the Print button returns an error implying that the Reports Path is incorrect.. As I said it was working one day and not the next with the only obvious change being that the server received some updates over the weekend.System.IO.FileNotFoundException: Report file FMS_GTS_0001_Requests_v1_3.rdlc not found. Check CLIENT_REPORTS_PATH setting. at Metrix.UI.ClientReport.RdlcReportHelper.OpenReportFile(String reportName) at Metrix.UI.ClientReport.RdlcReportHelper..ctor(String reportName, String reportRefName, Boolean isSubReport, Dictionary`2 reportQueries) at Metrix.UI.Util.RunReportingService(String reportNameWithParameters, String outputFileType)

Hi,Using FSM6U13, PSO 126.96.36.199We are currently having some issues understanding the schedule status in FSM. On the task, as my understanding, the scheduling status should be changed based on the status in PSO. However, we are currently experiencing a lot of the tasks that are open have no scheduling status in the task table. Is there any smart way to troubleshoot this particular issue?
I am wondering why sometimes the PM setting start date is not matching with planned date in maintenance plan.I think something went wrong on the specific PM line because others PM line in same contract created correctly.Any help would be greatly appreciated.Thanks,
Hi,on our DEV, when running refresh cache or refresh cache full we often get error: The following system level exception was generated by the application: Incorrect syntax near 'EN'.Contact your system administrator for assistance. The server log or event log may contain more details about the error. After executing the refresh cache for several times the error doesn’t appear. And the next refresh cache, the error reappears.Any idea what causing the error? -- server log showed info like this:Timestamp: 2022-05-20T11:57:08.1490252+00:00Message: SQL Server Exception: number=102: Incorrect syntax near 'EN'.Machine: DW1MDWK0000AUApp Domain: /LM/W3SVC/1251523880/ROOT-1-132968143322143582ProcessId: 10176Process Name: w3wpThread Name: ServiceRequest_456Timestamp: 2022-05-20T11:57:08.1802774+00:00Message: SQL Server exception (102:Incorrect syntax near 'EN'.) executing following SQL:SELECT MESSAGE_ID, LOCALE_CODE, MESSAGE_TYPE, MESSAGE_TEXT from metrix_message_def_view where LOCALE_CODE in ('
Hi Experts,I would like to know whether the following scenario is possible via a client script, We send an outbound integration on a particular entity with the user who created as a part of the body (ex: request_id, created_by) At a later point another request comes in as an inbound integration (not a response to the previous one, this is a separate request) with some additional info alongwith the initially sent fields (ex: request_id, created_by). We update the additional fields on the particular entity. At this point, if the user is on the same screen on the webclient, is it possible for the user to be notified that the entity has gotten updated by the integration? I tried with an alert BR, but since these are separate processes the alert isn’t shown. I am thinking of a client script solution where we could introduce a poll on an interval to check for a change in data and show an alert based on a change. I couldn’t find a client script function which could do this kind of polling. I
Hi Team, We have a requirement to save attachments into NFS drive that needs credentials to access it. We have tried configuring the NFS path into the ATTACHMENT DIRECTORY app param. But when we are trying to save attachment, it gives below error. The username or password is incorrect. We understand it is because credentials are required but there is no setting to set credentials for Attachment directory. Request you to please advise on how we can save attachments into NFS drive. Also can you please advise what is required to access these attachments once they are saved. Regards,AJAY
I have created resources and have checked the scheduling option in person screen. I have added the resource to respective team and can also see the concerned resource_id in the resource screen in FSM. I have also enabled App Param EXPORT TASK TEAMS with the concerned team_id but i am not able to push resources to PSO. I can see the places and tasks created in FSM being pushed to PSO but not resources.I have checked with the below mentioned query in SQL and i am able to get the resource id of the resource I had created in FSMselect * from THREESIXTY_RAM_LOAD_HISTORY order by loaded_dttm descCan anyone suggest what further changes/configurations do I have to make to push resources from FSM to PSO?
Hello all, We were trying to update a field on table C_TASK_EXTENSION (an extension of Task table) and we got the following error: After some explorations, we noticed that this error only occurred when we had a field of the type Longstring populated: However for example, if we try to update in other table some field when that entry has already a longstring field populated the error does not happen (for example when updating ADDRESS with COMMENTS field populated and also updating a custom table). Has anyone faced this issue before? Kind Regards, Joana Machado
Hi,I have a JSON Connection which is 99% there.The extract column ‘channels’ needs to be passed as an array, extract from the API Guide.What do I need to set and where on the XML Mapping so the ‘channels’ extract column is passed as [“SMS”]. Currently it missing the square brackets outside the quotation marks. I cannot add the square brackets to the value as it passes them inside the brackets when triggered. Any suggestions? Regards Ady
Hi!As we have a lot of users using both mobile/portal and smart client, we’d wan’t to track the usage of the different “licenses used”.F.ex a named user has the ability to both log in to the mobile, portal and smart client, but is there any way we are able to log/track usage of each of these?We’ve tried adding br’s for person_login_history to add data when the table is inserted to, but to no avail, as this seems to be inserted before the br’s are able to run.So, is there a reasonable way to differentiate between different types of login and be able to log this information?
Hi Experts, I’ve come across an issue where customer is having problems with Web client and Tech portal (It’s the only web client portal they use) and it is showing Http 500 error. Customer has FSM6U9 and they have implemented this on a new server for UAT testing.We have confirmed that they have installed “dotnet-hosting-3.1.12-win.exe” and other runtimes. We have checked if there are any IIS errors on the Windows event viewer and there aren’t any. Problem is ,even when we try to access web client from IIS manager itself using browse application option, it still shows this Http 500 error which means localhost doesn’t work for any web client. However their smart client is working fine.What are the possible causes for this ? What needs to be checked further ? Quick reply would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance !!!
I have created my Modelling Dataset in PSO and APPS. I have also created the Travel Cost Model and Rule Collection in Both Systems (with matching ID’s). The Modelling dataset is defined on my scheduling dataset. When I send my load and look at the shift of my resource, I am not seeing the Travel Cost Model ID. Any idea why? I can only seem to see it if I create a ROTA with the same ID as my Modelling Dataset, but then I end up with 2 schedules (One from my ROTA and one from IFS HR).
