Infor LX & BPCS Tip of the Week: ION Tip – Pausing Receiving and Sending of Messages

If it is necessary to pause sending and receiving of BOD messages on your IBM i during your month end process, it is best practice for the document flows that point to the IBM i to guarantee delivery of BOD messages. Once the month end process has been completed, you will need to Resume the ‘Receiving’ and ‘Sending’ Active Connection Points so your documents will continue to process.

Pausing Sending messages

To pause sending messages to ION:

  1. Select Connect > Active Connection Points.
  2. Select the connection point that must be paused for sending messages.
  3. In the Sending Paused column, click Pause. The page is automatically refreshed and the Sending Paused check box is selected. A Resume button becomes available. 

Sending of messages by this connection point is stopped....

Infor LN & Baan Tip of the Week: Job Groups in LN

In a scenario where performing job A depends on the result of job B, it is hard to decide at what time job A must be scheduled, and how long job B runs. To handle dependent jobs, you can now create a job group. Use the Job Groups (ttaad5140m000) session to create a job group. A job group has a name, with the same characteristics as a job name, and a description. The Status and User of the job group are handled automatically.

After creating the job group, the jobs are added to the group, approximately in the order the jobs must be performed. The first job in the group (with the lowest Group Number) determines the handling of the whole job group, such as execution date and whether the job group is being repeated. If the job group is not repeating, the job group and all non-repeating jobs in the job group are deleted when the job group has run.

The dependencies of the jobs in the job group are also determined. A job in the job group can only depend on a job in the same job group with a lower job number.

You can use the specific options in the Job Groups (ttaad5140m000 andttams5640m000) sessions to change the status of the job group. The job group statuses have the same meaning as the status of the jobs and the same status changes are allowed.

Note: Job groups are only handled by the BSE service Job Scheduler Service.

Infor LX & BPCS Tip of the Week: LX 8.4 Database

The database in LX 8.4 has undergone a significant change from previous versions. The database has been created using SQL DDL language instead of the old DDS language. The newer format allows for LX to take better advantage of advances in IBM database technologies as they move forward. Additionally, LX will be better able to make changes to tables (aka files) in the future without causing very large MR explosions to replace all programs that use a specific table. To ease the impact of this significant change, the LX tables (aka physical files) have new names that are the same as the previous version file names but with a “P” at the end, for example IIM is now IIMP. The old file names now belong to SQL views that looks just like the tables. This change made it easier to upgrade all the LX programs without changing every reference to every file. Many of the logical files remain although some have been replaced by SQL indexes to improve performance.
