Filter a data source

I hope I can explain it right... I'm trying to add an autocomplete column to an item list that is filtered on a multi select column. So I have a projects dictionary, and want to select a project from that. Each project can have multiple employees working on it, therefore I created a multi-user selection in the project dictionary. When selecting the project I want to get all projects where my account is in the employees field, like: Filter: [Employee(Login)] is in [Data source columns(Employees) (...)

Yellow exclamation marks in SWE, fields not showing on form

Hi, Has anyone encountered this yet - we have a couple of yellow exclamation marks in the SWE configuration under "Data Presentation". These fields are not showing on the form. I don't think permission should be an issue, since everybody has access to these fields. Are there any configuration details I should check? Any suggestions? Thanks!

Problem with searching (Solr?) after upgrade

Hi everyone, I've recently upgraded WebCon from 2020 to 2021 and everything went ok except quick search. The "search everything" in our main application results in no elements founded. However when switched to "All aplication" view I can see all results and everything works fine. I suspect that the WEBCON Search service and its index is not up to date. Is there a way to rebuild that index?

Executing a form rule via JavaScript in all environments

Hi everyone, experienced BPS Designers will remember a time when form rules didn't have an 'Edit mode', where you could select JavaScript or Form rule. You only had JavaScript. :) In the meantime the 'Form rule' option has been added an the JavaScript mode gets little attention, if at all. But how can you do some of the 'Form rule' actions with pure JavaScript? If you click on the "Show" button in the expression preview you will the JavaScript representing the graphic rules. In my case I want (...)

Timeout during deleting instances

Hello everyone! I have a trouble during deleting instances - i always get timeout after 30 seconds. Is there any way to make the system button faster or to increase timeout time? I didnt find anything in webcon configurations unfortunately. I dont think it is a version problem since deleting on test environment works just fine. Edit: I just managed to get the same problem on test environment. Best Regars Kamil Górski

Sharepoint 2016 Full Trust version: Form on sharepoint can not be displayed

Hi everyone, after creating an application i right-clicked on it and chose "show application in process". Unfortunately, only a blank page is displayed instead of the Standard Form. What could be the reason? Does anybody have an idea how to fix this? PS: 1) i noticed, that i unfortunately took the root path as Portal URL - because the installer proposed it and i unfortunately did not change it (see image below). root/Webconbps is the same path where the designer studio portal is located.

Support for Azure SQL

Hi there, as far as I know there is no official support for Azure SQL for the WEBCON BPS databases today. If we implement WEBCON BPS in a customer's own Azure tenant as their private cloud, it would be smart to use Azure SQL, because of the integrated HA features, scalability and low maintenance effort. WEBCON BPS is very well integrated with Microsoft technology and has great integrations with Microsoft services, i.e. M365. I would strongly appreciate, if support for Azure SQL could be added in (...)

on Prem Sharepoint 2016 installation: Did not setup a windows user while NOT using integrated security

Hi everyone, i installed WEBCON WITHOUT integrated authentication. Unfortunately, i skipped the step, where you have the option to setup a Windows User (see pic 1) - the manual said, it is not required (even though recommended). Now i cannot log into the Webcon BPS Designer Studio. Do you have an idea, how to setup the Windows authentication Connection to the Database afterwards - without integrated authentication? Thank you for your help.

SQL command: Populating a multilingual choice field with form type names

Hi everyone, I had the requirement to provide a drop down which can be used to select a form type. Since I'm a fan of doing things the right way I've chosen to provide a multilingual label. Example: TMeasure$$de$$Maßnahme$$en$$Measure I'm not sure whether I'm missed something because of the late hour, but I didn't found a better option than creating this on my own. If someone else has a similar need, either selecting form types, workflows or whatever this command can be used as a template: se (...)

XML Invoices comming soon

Hi everyone! I've recently heard that we are soon to have electronic invoices in XML format (in Poland) instead of PDFs. This should shorten invoice processing in Webcon as we could read fields straight into the form with no errors and no OCR verification step. This sounds very good, but will Webcon be ready for this? Will there be actions allowing to read data from xml structure and map them to the form? Or maybe there is something working already? Michal
