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

  1. Perform one of the following tasks.
    1. Open the Import data object into database dialog box on the Start page or in the Edit menu.
    2. Publish your project in the database and confirm the import object prompt.

    NOTE: If you enable the Do not ask again option in the dialog box, this box will not open again.

    If you want to display this box again, enable the Ask after publishing import setting in the Global settings box, accessed via the Edit menu.

  2. Select the objects you wish to import into the database from dialog box 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

    TIP: 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.

Project Configuration - Web Project Tab

A web project is defined through the configuration key under the root node 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 the root node 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 the Configuration node.

Selecting a Database Object

To select a database object

  1. Select the category in the navigation view.

    The selected category is listed with the corresponding database objects .

  2. Proceed as follows.
    1. Double-click the database object of your choice.
    2. Enter the name of the database object in the navigation view search field.

    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 the Configuration or Configuration (custom) button in the definition tree view. All configuration keys that are not listed here, are not given a value.
