Re: Question about "ESSENTIAL VIEWPOINT" portion in some views, e.g. Business Capability Dashboard

This is the roadmap enablement, the best way to see the pattern is in the core_al_app_provider_list_table.xsl You need to send it a JSON structure, so use the marts if you can, or create a JSON structure and pass that to the framework. Look for <xsl:call-template name="ViewUserScopingUI"><...

Re: MacOS import utility issue

Hi, When it works it will export an XML file you can open in Excel, however, from what you have provided, it looks like your import spec is the problem. It won't generate any data to export. There is a pattern for imports where you get the related instances and then map them to the instance that is ...

Hi Dhaya, We're trying/struggling to replicate this. As a workaround, you can use Generate Import File and apply the DUP that generates to your repository using the Essential Update tab in Essential, then publish.

Re: New Application Summary view - Others tab

Hi Adolfo,

Thanks for the feedback.

Re your missing data, are they enumerations? This tab only picks up enumerations at the moment. If they are enumerations then can you post your slot names here please?

Re: How to clear down old viewer content with reimport

Hi Steve Launchpad does updates only, so it will keep the old data in the repo. You are best deleting all instances of the class in Protege and then reimport. However, if you have relationships then be careful, as if you want to retain those then deleting the instances first will remove those. In th...

Re: Business Process Model View: Cannot Display Flow when there's special characters within the Activity / Process Name

Sorry for the delay, but we worked it out. We'll push this into the next release, note it needs to go through formal testing on our side. If you are happy to treat this as pre-testing, then replace your current file with this one, this seems to work OK.
