Partner TechTip: Reply Trace Is Like Analyze, "Premium Edition" PDF Print E-mail
Tips & Techniques - System Administration
Written by Kurt Thomas   
Friday, 28 March 2014 00:00

When you make changes to autoreplies in QMessage Monitor, Analyze is the must-use functionality. But what if new autoreplies don't work as intended? Meet Reply Trace, a powerful new feature that illuminates autoreply issues for fast investigations.

kurt thomas.Written by Kurt Thomas

Existing QMessage Monitor (QMM) users will know it is best practice to use the Analyze function after changing or adding autoreplies. Available in the PC module Maintenance by right-clicking an autoreply, the Analyze function checks which autoreplies share the same message ID with the currently selected autoreply. When matches are found, a list is generated that is split into two categories— "Affected" and "Affects"—as shown in figure 1 below.

Sugar CE is a great tool for developers and end users who understand the value of automation software but lack the resources to jump in whole hog on a large commercial project.

martin schneiderWritten by Martin Schneider

Many small and mid-sized businesses can benefit from customer relationship management (CRM) software. However, every business has unique processes and data points in their key sales, marketing, and support operations that make it difficult or expensive to purchase and deploy proprietary CRM tools.

 

 In addition, many proprietary or SaaS CRM systems lack the ability for internal developers to take the software and make deep customizations or integrationseither as a test of the system or for production usage. Or these systems require significant up-front investment to do so.

Discover the euphoria of self-service password reset.

robin tatamWritten by Robin Tatam

Since the dawn of the technological age, stories have abounded of users writing passwords on Post-It notes and in logbooks. That's because good passwords are hard to devise and even harder to remember. When we concoct one, we hang on to it. What's worse, we use the same username and password everywhere. Many experts believe passwords represent one of the greatest security vulnerabilities; however, they remain a necessary evil. The reality is that passwords will be around for the foreseeable future. And for every password that exists, there's a user who will forget it.

TechTip: Mantis/400, a Mature, Open-Source Issue-Tracking Application in PHP PDF Print E-mail
Tips & Techniques - Dev Tools
Written by Ira Chandler

Yes, we all have source code for many commercial applications. Once we license them, that is. How about source code for free? How great is that?

ira chandlerWritten by Ira Chandler

 Spoiler Alert: At the end of this TechTip is the "Ultimate Solution" to PHP databases on the System i.

  

The PHP community of programmers has long been a bastion of the open-source movement. This business model is based on the free distribution of the code and applications. Normally, "community" support is readily available on forums via the users of the software, with a modicum of help from the authors.

 

The debate over the readiness of open source for enterprise use will not continue here. What we will expose is the huge benefit of learning from open source. Having a fully operational program with easily readable source code is absolutely the best way to learn a language. And if that app can do some things that you actually need done, all the better.

Don't let a library of useful but outdated queries stop you from modernizing how you deliver your data.

heath kathWritten by Heath Kath

Are you still running IBM i green-screen queries? How many queries are you dealing with? Are you finding it hard to manage all those queries? Are your users tired of waiting for a slow-running query that can use only the Classic Query Engine (CQE)? Would your users prefer a modern, graphical interface with more distribution options?
