Maintenance and settings

Hotfixes

menu Maintenance > Hotfixes

Shows a list with all hotfixes that are available for download for the current Software Factory version.
Hotfixes that are already installed have the Applied checkbox selected.

Configuration

menu Maintenance > Configuration

Contains a number of default settings for new projects and project versions, such as the database, languages, RDBMS type, server, folders, sub name group and email notification settings. Here you can also specify which platforms must be available by default.

  • Defaults

    • The Company name is used as the default project title, and in the splash screen at your application's startup.
    • The Fallback language is applied when a user has selected a language that is not available for the application. See: Application languages.
    • The RDBMS type. This is the relational database management system.
    • The Project folder spec.. This is the location on disk that is used for temporarily storing:
      • Program objects for the Functionality modeler.
      • Project version exports (model.dat files).
      • GUI theme exports.
      • The Deployer manifest.
    • The Sub name group (optional). If no sub name group is selected in the default configuration, a new sub name group will be created for this project. For more information on sub names, see Naming.
  • Review settings

    • Code review required - Not every project requires a code review. Uncheck this setting to hide the tasks for (dis)approving code and the validations regarding the not yet (dis)approved code. See also Code review.
    • Translation review required - Not every project requires a translations review. Uncheck this setting to hide the tasks for (dis)approving translations and the validations regarding the not yet (dis)approved translations. See also Translation review.

Runtime configurations

See Runtime configurations in the Deployment manual.

IAM configurations

When synchronizing the Software Factory to IAM (see Synchronization to IAM), the default Target IAM is used. You can set the default and other possible configurations here:

menu Maintenance > IAM configurations

To set the default IAM configuration:

  1. Select the Target IAM you wish to make the default.
  2. Execute the Set default target IAM task set.

IAM Configurations are very similar to Runtime configurations. The difference is that runtime configurations can only name end-product databases of which the Software Factory holds its model. Therefore, runtime configurations cannot be used for synchronizing to IAM.
