Hi all,I am currently in the process of updating from Apps 9 Update 10 to Update 16 and noticed that my server startup/shutdown scripts aren’t working as expected.It seems the cause is due to the E:\IFS\IFSExt\<INSTANCE>\mw_home\as directory being replaced by the mws directory.In the hopes that this was a simple location switch I changed the startup/shutdown scripts to reflect this change in directory. echo Starting Middleware servers...cd /d %DRIVE%:\IFS\IFSExt\%SID%\instance\%SID%\bin%JAVA_HOME%/bin/java -cp %DRIVE%:\IFS\IFSExt\%SID%/mw_home/as/wlserver/server/lib/weblogic.jar weblogic.WLST %DRIVE%:\IFS\IFSExt\%SID%/instance/%SID%/bin/mws-startServer.py startall %PWD%to echo Starting Middleware servers...cd /d %DRIVE%:\IFS\IFSExt\%SID%\instance\%SID%\bin%JAVA_HOME%/bin/java -cp %DRIVE%:\IFS\IFSExt\%SID%/mw_home/mws/wlserver/server/lib/weblogic.jar weblogic.WLST %DRIVE%:\IFS\IFSExt\%SID%/instance/%SID%/bin/mws-startServer.py startall %PWD%cd /d %DRIVE%:%LOGFOLDER%ping -n 5 127.0
Hi there, Found out that UPD 8 of IFS Applications 10 was to be released at 30 April. Were do I find content/release notes for that release? I am in particular interested in the development of new interface IFS Aurena, and changes around Project Management, HR and CRM. Best regards, Filip
Are there any users/customers who has recently upgraded to PSO 6 update 5 from PSO 6.1?Basically who has upgraded from the Silverlight version and started using the HTML version (on Chrome and other browsers).If someone can share their experience, lessons learnt/ challenges faced, it would be great for us to travel that path and get rid of some of the obstacles someone else has already faced.
I am doing an upgrade of custom events and fields in Applications 10. I have two instances of Apps 10: In one instance I am adding all the custom events and custom fields to configuration packages. I am then importing those package in another instance of Apps10. The custom events in the packages already exist in the Apps10 instance I am importing them to. However when I import them it tells me that the custom event already exists (which is true) and in the case of the custom fields it does not overwrite the the existing field, it creates a new one with “_2” appended to the name.When I was creating the packages there wasn’t a setting to allow me to overwrite the object I am exporting if it already exists in the IFS instance that I import it to. Likewise when i imported the package I was not given the option to overwrite the object if it already exists. Is this the way Configuration Packages work? It isn’t possible for me to delete all the objects in the db before the import.
Hi,Do you know, if it is possible to migrate predefined HU IDs to products in stock? This is for the situation where we would like to start actual labelling of stock before IFS10 database is available for HU ID creation?
What is the IFS advised method to test a UPD? Should we test the customer’s business flows or all the functionalities introduced from the UPD or both?If we receive multiple UPDs to deploy and test, should we test one by one or can we apply all and test all together to reduce the testing effort significantly.

Has anyone heavily customised IFS apps 9 to suit their business? we are looking to upgrade from Apps 9 to Apps 10 in the next year and am wondering if we will lose any functionality from our customisations. Has anyone had any major problems moving from apps 9 to 10? Am considering a customisation freeze to make sure the process has as less need for regression testing. Perhaps am being over cautious? we have a number of improvement requests to streamline IFS for the business and don’t want to stifle potential time/effort saving initiatives. Thanks
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
