We are running Apps 9 and have a number of improvements requested by the business, most simple things like referenced fields and events but am aware with the need to move to Apps10 that these little tweaks may not work as expected in the latest version. How do you guys manage your improvements? - Is it a free-for-all or do you follow a process?
Hello, is there anywhere specific to provide general improvement suggestion feedback about IFS? I’m talking about things that aren’t bugs per se and don’t really count as support cases but rather suggestions that could make IFS better - a suggestion box.
Hi everyone, we are currently upgrading from APPS9 to APPS10. Today I tried to export the Overview Part Cost History as a CSV-File in our IFS10 test environment. I got an error saying that I can only export a maximum of 10000 rows. Does anybody know how to expand the row limit for a CSV-Export? I never got that message on IFS9. Thanks in advance.
Don’t laugh - I know, 2003, yeah! Does anyone have a copy of the Data Import executable that allows you to load in new records, and update existing data in IFS2003. I cannot remember the name of it. Since my laptop rebuild, I have lost it! IFS support didn’t want to know. Thanks in advance. TIm
Hi, We are upgarding APPS10-UPD3 to UPD7. When we are deploying it from Installer it is working fine without any issue and and no invalid objects. Its successful. But when we are deploying it manually using install.tem, there are issue and the upgrade is failing. Is there any more scripts we need to execute before the install.tem? If yes what are those and please share the sequence also to execute it. Thanks & Regards Shitanshu Sharan
hi, We are upgrading to V10, current standard reports in 8 needed to be imported to 10. Some suggested the version change is not an issue just needed to update the layout in 10. We have minor customisation on these reports and don't have developer license so cant do any changes to run in version 10. Will the reports work as it is in v10 if no customisation done in v8 reports with customisation what are the chances report may work in 10 thank you
Hi all, We have an event on shopord.work_instruc_printed (apps9). When testing on apps10, we realize that the field, work_instruc_printed, does not exists. We obviously have to rewrite the event, but can we somehow have it work on both 9 and 10?
Dear esteemed Members, Our customer is planning to upgrade OS to Win Server 2016 Std or 2019 Std from 2008 R2 for its IFS App Ver 8 Sp2 instance. Would request IFS recommendation on the OS upgrade with possible impact. Any technical document or whitepaper available to back up the recommendation. Regards, Sunil Nair
Apps 7.5 had a cool enhancement to Operational Reporting called ‘iPrinting’ which was a UK customisation. It allowed additional data to be pulled into a report layout which could then be used by Report Designer. This feature appeared to disappear by the time Apps 9 came along and I wondered whether anyone has come across this? Custom Fields offer some assistance but what they do not provide is ‘sub queries’ of data. e.g. Customer Invoices lines report the Lot/Batch Number of the invoice qty but I want to then show a break down of that quantity across the batches. This would require a sub-query of the inventory transaction history or something to show the separate lot ref and qty. I used to be able to do this using iPrinting but I can’t see way to do it with custom fields. Anyone got any ideas?
It looks like it is not allowed to only scrap the parent object without scrapping each of the child first. Getting this Error Message when trying to scrap ….”All child objects in the structure must be scrapped before scrapping the parent”. We are using SM objects and also upgraded to IFS 10. It was possible to scrap this kind of parts in IFS9. Is there any settings we have missed or has this function been changed in IFS10?
Hello, We are considering an update from IFS Apps 8 to 10 and would be interested to receive guidance, feedback and lessons learned for companies using a similar industry and setup as ourselves. We are a FM company so the emphasis is very much on the service side of IFS. We currently use the majority of Service and Maintenance module including Mobile Work Orders, 360/PSO, Route Work Orders and standard Work Orders. In addition business support modules are also used Procurement, Financials, HR and Payroll. We have a fair few custom objects (Fields, Menus, Events) that have been developed over the last 4 years in addition to supporting custom Oracle APIs. Anyone who feels they cover all or some of the above areas and has gone through the upgrade or in progress, please can you share your thoughts Many thanks Shaun
Hello Information in “IFS Applications 10 Supported Platforms” says that there are planned support for Oracle 19c in IFSAPP 10 UPD6 (and higher). Can an IFS person verify that it is reality, and still not a plan. IF still a plan when will the app10 be supported on Oracle 19c
If you attended our Webinar: Upgrades and Path to Evergreen, here’s the Q&A. You can watch the webinar here, if you missed it! Q: What is a CRIM? A: Configurations, Reports, Integrations and Modifications Q: Is it possible to upgrade to IFS 2020 R1 if you're not currently on Apps 10? What are the additional challenges, if any? A: Yes, it’s possible to upgrade to IFS 2020 R1 from older versions of IFS, you do not specifically need to be on Apps 10 to upgrade to IFS 2020 R1. Q: Is it true that under Extended Support, new fixes will only be provided for SEV1 and SEV2 bugs? So not all fixes are included. A: Extended Support included SEV1-SEV4 fixes. Just like in standard support only the merging of SEV1-SEV2 are included. For merging a single patch for a SEV3-SEV4 a fixed price is charged. The customer may wait for the next update. Although IFS may reduce the cadence of updates during extended support. Extended Support includes Severity 1 and 2 fixes. Q: Dell Boomi's integrat

Hey everyone, I wanted to drop in a question about a feature that was in IFS 7.5 but has seemingly left the building in IFS 10 in some form: In IFS 7.5, you could down on a bunch of Quick Reports, right click, and Add to Selection for any user with either read-only or editable access. This would allow for a quick return to the selection of reports for a user because they could simply click their selection on the left pane and get access to all of their pertinent Quick Reports. In IFS 10 the same functionality exists but only for users who can access the editable piece of this (QR in Solution Manager). So while I can access this as an admin, a read-only user cannot access this functionality. We of course don’t want very many users editing Quick Reports for security and integrity reasons, but then how do we restore the ability to Add to Selection for any and every user? Is this possible?
