  • @BarryStevens, In my case the OEngine is always spawned from an OECGI request but OI is pretty much always running (they have like 50 users and are a almost 24 hour operation). I have obersved them on a weekend when they have as few as 7 users …
  • @DonBakke, sorry for the confusing statement. I see OEngine.exe in the Details tab, not OpenEngine.
  • @DonBakke A bit of both to be honest ;-) You confirmed a couple of things for me. You also made me start to consider holes in my theories! I always thought it was the OEngine.dll (OpenEngine) access that 'used' the licence but was struggling to h…
  • What is that I hear? Why, thats the sound of @DonBakke bursting my bubble Just when I thought I was getting a grasp of things.
  • @BarryStevens I wrote a little powershell script. I am not really a Windows programmer by trade so it took me a tick to make what I was looking for. Its also not optimized and hobbled together. Basically used variations of this (with $FILEPATH …
  • @DonBakke, I think you are 100% spot on why my Remove Table was not working. Like I told @JaredBratu, that little nugget is going into the toolkit! Appreciate the help from both :)
  • @JaredBratu, Sorry for the delay. Thanks for the respnse and commands. I didnt get to use them as I had already gone to restore a full backup I had taken prior to starting anything. I had already tried just replacing the DBT already but that hadn…
  • OK. If I run the RDK again I get an DB entry I do not expect. ( (The table should exist under the APPDATA\DATA entry) If I unattach and resave the DB I still cannot start without the error unless the RDK remains in place. Clearly some remanants I…
  • @AusMarkB Good note. We actually do both between our two systems!
  • @BarryStevens Worked as promised. I think I might need to brush up on my knowledge on the contents of table/index/dictionary files! I think I was under mistaken assumptions about some of their purpose and use. I will bear in mind your notes about l…
  • Thank you all for your comments. Very good food for thought! @DonBakke I will contact you directly shortly related to this.

  • Thanks for the comments. I have thought there might be some rough seas for quite some time but have never been able to get the traction to be able to allocate any serious time/resource to it. While I hope it is not all the gloom and doom that @Kevi…
  • @AusMarkB Thanks for that. Yeah I got that far on the insert before I read your last update ;-) Your original post triggered my memory and it lead me to re-read the SRP wiki info on the various STYLE/COLSTYLE/STYLE BY POS and Bit-wise operators! W…
  • BarryStevens Like I said, I restart the service (or rather a debug mode command). I have a hotkey to trigger a window's .cmd file after any endpoint changes. This kils and and restarts the debug engine. Only takes few seconds when you get used to…
  • @DonBakke. You are right. Points 1 and 3 would be the selling points. I can think of a few clients with complaints of dropouts that might like 3, but only if it works!
  • @BarryStevens The Voodoo magic of caching never seems to work the way I want/expect so I always found it good practice to restart the Windows Service when making pretty much any change to endpoints....
  • @DonBakke That impression tracks too ;-) So it seems the recommendation is to make UD a must for future installs. I will have to dust off the UD documentation I saw somewhere a while back to get a clearer understanding of the install requriements…
  • @BarryStevens Thanks for the tip. That may be part of the past reasoning. We have some performance issues with one of our applications so maybe we historically weren't willing to potentially introduce further performance issues...
  • @FrankTomeo Why did I know you were going to bring up the UD ;-) For reasons I still dont fully understand, we only have 1 client (that I am aware of) that is running their UD. None of our others were installed with it, including the client in que…
  • @BarryStevens You definately want it enabled. I retook the screenshot in the doc to sanitise my URLS but forgot I have that particular server disabled for the time being. Oops!
  • @BarryStevens We have all been there!
  • @BarryStevens Third line in your screenshot under '[No Description]' looks like it is using that path.....
  • @BarryStevens It lives in C:\inetpub\wwwroot (assuming default IIS install) A good test is you can make some rubbish entries in the IIS Manager URL rewrite tool and you should be able to see the changes in that file. I dont actually use the GUI. …

  • @BarryStevens It lives in C:\inetpub\wwwroot (assuming default IIS install) A goo dtest is you can make some rubbish entries in the IIS Manager URLK rewrite tool and you shoul dbe able to see the changes in that file. I dont actually use the GUI.…
  • Not a problem @BarryStevens. The SRP crew gave me a hand a couple of years back when I was trying to get my head around how that all worked. Time to pay a little back :)
  • Barry, I have attached a sanitised checklist I did up for new staff here to follow a while back. It isnt an exhaustive list as I still have some of the marbles rolling around in the back of my head but its pretty much what we do just for API access…
  • One last question while I have you Don. Any high level statstical metrics on endpoint access in that roadmap? I get we can keep logs but thats a LOT of ever expanding information when something as simple as daterange/endpoint/method/access count (o…
  • Indeed it would :)
  • Don, You are on point as always. I havent thought too much about a design but I have been asked the question by the higher-ups in the past. Basically an attempt to monetize some of the unique API endpoints. I like how I can deploy the full endpoint…
