System Configuration changes on upgrades

Hi

I have upgraded our current YF Application from v. 7.1 to latest v. 7.4.

I can see that new Loading Settings have been introduced in Dashboards:

- Colored Overlay -> true

- Loading Animation -> true

for both Dashboard Report Loading and Dashboard Report Refresh Settings.

How can I set those values to false during upgrade without using UI - I would like to automate this?

- DASHREPORTLOADINGOVERLAY

- DASHREPORTLOADINGANIMATION

- DASHREPORTREFRESHOVERLAY

- DASHREPORTREFRESHANIMATION

Is it safe to make changes (update/insert) to configuration table directly? Is there another way to succeed this?

Additionally, do you know if YFN-7325, YFN-7389 have been fixed at all?

Thanks

Hi Stelios,

If you do not want to use the UI, then it is possible to adjust the configuration database to make these changes. If you are using very pointed queries (as in inserting a specific column) then there should not be too much danger in this approach, though as with any edits to the database:

  • Make notes of exactly what you are changing
  • Back-up the database prior to making these changes.

The key is being able to quickly undo any problems that arise :)

Regarding YFN-7325 & YFN-7389 - unfortunately, there has been no action as of yet.

Regards,

Nathan
