OS.app System Configuration

Each application created with the OSbee Software Factory V4.5.5 and later contains the system configuration to manage system wide settings.

The system configuration has two parts:

  • Configuration group
  • Configuration

The configuration entries belong to a configuration group to bundle related configuration entries.

Configuration entries and groups show up during operation of the application, as soon as the entry is requested by the application. The default value is used as the initial value. As soon as the configuration entry is available, it can be adjusted to the local needs.

Deleting an entry will result in the recreation of the default value, as soon as the application requests the value.

Configuration values will be introduced without seperate notice. The description might contain values, that are not yet available in the OS.app you're using, depending on the version of the software factory used to build the applicatoin.


Configuration Attributes

There are various attributes used for the configuration. All entries have

basic attributes
Attribute Type
configuration group Reference to the Configuration group
key String
description String

The follwing types extend this basic attribute set. It can be a simple or a complex type

Boolean

a simple yes/no value, selected means yes / true, deselected means no / false

Integer

a simple number with precision 0 eg. 5000

Float

a simple number with precision > 0 eg. 1.234

String

a simple text value. Whatever shall be configured as text

Textblock

a simple text block value. Whatever shall be configured as a larger amount of text. Can be formatted.

Datainterchange

a complex type to configure datainterchange parameters for import and export

Datainterchange configuration attributes
Attribute Type
protocol directory String, the directory, where the import log is stored.
empty disables the logging, Default: empty
import blocksize Integer, Default 5000
no superindex creation Boolean, Default yes
export blocksize Integer, Default 1000

Notification Template

a complex type to configure user email notifications

Notification Template Attributes
Attribute Type
locale The language, the template is valid for
subject String, used as email subject
body String, used as email body

DATAINTERCHANGE

Controls the datainterchange settings

For each datainterchange, the settings for the import and export can be configured

Attribute Description Type Default Possible Values
key the datainterchange, the setting is used for String (not editable)
description free text String
protocol directory the directory, where the camel protocol files shall be saved.
Attention: the use of protocol files has a significant impact on the performance
String directory on the server
no superindex creation Do not update the superindex during import.
Boolean true true
false
import blocksize the number of records, that are imported in one block.
The larger the blocksize, the more memory is needed.
Integer 5000 0 = no block defined
export blocksize the number of records, that are exported in one block / file. Integer 1000 0 = no block defined

Then, the prefix file: has to be used and the location can bei either relative or absolute. The relative location has to start with "file:", the absolute location has to start with "file:////" followed by the path to the rptdesign file.

The original report is used if the alternate report can not be found. The log contains hints about the search and the problem.
