Importing from a solution to the database
To use the wizard for importing, the solution must manage database module objects. If this is not the case, you must import using another method.
To import files into the database
- Perform one of the following tasks:
- On the Start page or from Edit menu, open the Import data object into database dialog.
- Publish your project in the database and confirm the import object prompt.
If you enable Do not ask again
, this box will not open again.
If you want to display this dialog again, activate the setting Ask for import after publishing in the Global settings dialog, which you can access through the Edit menu.
- Select the objects you wish to import into the database from dialog on the Object selection page.
NOTE: If the Import object-dependent references option is enabled, files used by references can no longer be deselected, thus avoiding inconsistencies.
NOTE: If the Remove deleted objects from the database option is enabled, objects that are not on the hard drive are removed from the database
Only deselect objects you know have not been modified or are not needed to publish your project.
Otherwise, files may be missing during compilation or assemblies created later may be incomplete.
Web project configuration options
You can customize the default Web Portal. You can modify filters for searching employees or products, enable, and disable functions, and change properties displayed in result lists.
These changes are made by entering custom values for the corresponding configuration keys. It is not necessary to program new modules or components to do this.
Detailed information about this topic
Project configuration - web project
A web project is defined through the configuration key under Configuration. This definition only applies for this web project. They can consist of modules and components that are used by several web projects and can also contain their own configuration key definitions. The web project uses default configuration keys, if none are defined under Configuration (custom) or within the web project used by a module's configuration key.
NOTE: The configuration keys are declared directly in the modules or components under Configuration.
Selecting a database object
To select a database object
- Select the relevant report in the navigation view.
The selected category is listed with the corresponding database objects .
- Proceed as follows.
- Double-click a database object.
- In the field for searching the navigation view, enter the name of the required database object.
This displays the selected database object in the definition tree view.
NOTE: The assignment of a configuration key with a value is always applied to the module or component. These configuration keys are shown when you click Configuration or Configuration (custom). All configuration keys that are not listed here, are not given a value.
