Planner Database Backup

A local planner database on your JD Edwards deployment server is often not included in the regular backup plans. Even if your deployment server is backed using your server backup technology, there is a possibility that the E1Local Oracle database might not be recoverable due to the data files being locked. A deployment server recovery might not be as simple if the local database is no longer accessible/recoverable. The planner database doesn’t change very often but it does hold a lot of important configuration details and a simple backup to disk once a month can save you a lot of headaches.

E1 Package Compression: To Use or Not to Use?

What is package compression and why do you care if it is used? I spent my first 7 years as a consultant building packages for one particular client. I built packages for 3 environments two times per day. I discovered three issues in the area of package management: disk space, time, and keeping development clients up to date.

Comparing Specs Using P98780H – Work with Repository History

Repository History is created when you apply an ESU, check an object in, promote an object in OMW, etc. You can access the Repository to get information about all historical actions that have been taken affecting object specifications. For this example, after application of an ESU, errors were being received that indicated there was a problem with the structure of one of the JDE tables. The ESU was reapplied using Force Merge for this object, but the error remained. In order to verify that specs were updated by application of the ESU, P98780H was used to export objects and compare them.

Databrowser Security – Part II – The 9.1 Remix

So, way back last year (okay, just a few weeks ago), Chris wrote Part 1 of this blog, and promised a Part 2 with a 9.1 workaround for the same problem. To recap – a client wanted to grant access via Databrowser to just a few tables for a role. We knew we couldn’t use object level security, as that would completely limit that user in all of E1 to just those few tables. In the first part of this blog – I’ll pause here in case you want to go re-read – Chris talked about how to accomplish this in 9.2 with UDO View security. But there are still E1 customers on 9.1, so how could they accomplish something similar without the cool UDO features you get in 9.2?

Databrowser Security – Part I

Recently, a client came to me with a request to give temporary databrowser access for just a few tables to a new role that was being created. My first thought – not possible, based on having to setup table security within security workbench to deny access to all tables and grant back access to the [...]
