Some changes in IRIS configuration require a restart of IRIS.
This is no big issue as long as I have access to the server command line with sufficient privileges.

In a container, this is not always given.
Stopping IRIS from the terminal/session prompt is no problem.
But the restart after is.  

Note1: container start-stop is no option as it might be removed by option --rm in docker run
Note2: the target is linux (manly in docker).  Windows is excluded

When you have more than ten thousand users in your database, it becomes time-consuming and inconvenient to assign group access rights through the standard IRIS interface. In this artilce I want to introduce you an application to automate this process.

I’ll show you how to assign and change the role lists for the users, selecting them by context, and I will also show you how to expand this application’s functionality. you know how to apply your work as an administrator and developer to the new features of the well-proven apptools software complex. With the addition of an adminLTE template, you can now quickly and easily create interface interactions for any entity and many functional modules.
The goal while developing this toolkit is to write as little JavaScript as possible as well as transfer and implement all the dynamics as much as possible in the ObjectScript.

Hello everyone,

First, thanks in advance for your help :-)

I noticed that a query called directly in a method of a class of a business operation does not return the same result as if I apply the same query in the same Caché database from Squirrel !!! 

I don't understand why ??? 

Here is the query :

httpRequest POST file Upload multipart

1. is there a code example step-by-step, how to build each part  ?

I tried the demo from intersystems doc's,

I checked it in .Net response, that didnot recognize the File-data part

2. I noticed, there is :

SET BinaryMIMEPart.ContentType="application/octet-stream"

but missing : 

SET BinaryMIMEPart.ContentDisposition (as analogue, let say for VBA EXCEL )

or I do it via the:

Do BinaryMIMEPart.SetHeader("Content-Disposition",...) ?

that is not analouge for VBA

I'm trying to add a DR async member to a mirror but when I add this member I get this messages in the mirror monitor (on the DR member):

The message im talking about is the "missing Mirrored Databases report".

The only step I did was the " System Administration -> Configuration -> Mirror Settings -> Join as Async" an fill the blanks. Maybe Im skipping a step?

In the good old days (tm) determining the size of the data, streams, and indices for a class/table was easy - you just ran %GSIZE and check D, S, and I globals respectively.

However, nowadays sharding, optimized global names, and indices in separate globals produce %GSIZE output looking like this:

Is there a way to automatically transform Object Script arrays to Python lists?  This code results in a list of arrays

Iter0 =  dbnative.iterator("HS.Data.OIDMapD")
for subscript, value in Iter0.items():
    print(f"subscript={subscript}, value={value}")

Here is the result:

subscript=1, value=2.16.840.1.113883.3.86ISCInterSystems Corporation

I suppose it would be too hard to parse this into a list, I was just wondering if there was a function provided to make it convenient and proper.

Hi Developers! 
Let me share with you some exercises from a workshop about developing interoperability components in Java using PEX (Production EXtension).

You will find slides and step by step exercises about:

  • Understanding simple PEX components coded in Java.
  • Making some changes on them.

All built using containers, so you don't need to build a local Java environment.

Hello everybody,

I am creating a WS as a server, but when I ask for the WSDL it is giving me an error because it cannot find the class.

I have added the following instructions:

set ^SYS("Security","CSP","AllowClass","MiProyecto.MiClaseWS","%SOAP.WebServiceInfo")=1 
set ^SYS("Security","CSP","AllowClass","MiProyecto.MiClaseWS","%SOAP.WebServiceInvoke")=1

I have created an entry in the WS security configuration

Java Connection Strategy

We are planning to build a REST API with the Java Quarkus Framework.

  • There'll be a connection pool;
  • The DataSource instance will be automatically injected from the connection pool;
  • We will use JDBI to do SQL instructions and this will give us automatic Connection and Statement management;

This Caché instance already have COS applications running and consuming connections and licenses.

After doing this, we will migrate to IRIS.

I believe that the Perl and Python bindings that exist on Cache / Ensemble do not exist on IRIS for Health 2020.1 ... is that correct?


Is there any similar documentation and samples (like below) , that show an example of how to run a basic Perl or Python script that connects with ODBC or whatever the recommended way?

I was interested in accessing IRIS (Healthshare) using Python.  I found instructions how to this here:

The installation went well using pip and when python executes "import irisnative" it works fine.  It just fails with a connection timeout when I try "irisnative.createConnection(...)."  Below is my code:

I am working with InterSystems API Manager product and I'm trying to solve an authentication problem.  In our implementation, API Manager accepts basic authentication.  One of the endpoints accepts OAuth2.  The request coming into API Manager is FHIR and needs to have basic auth in the header.  The OAuth token is passed to API Manager as a parameter.  I want to send FHIR to the endpoint with a Bearer Token in the header instead of the basic auth that came into API Manager.  Has anyone used a transformation plug-in to solve a similar issue?  I'm trying to solve this problem in API Manager ra

Hello everyone! 

Have you ever worked with or undertaken a test through a technical assessment platform (Codility, Coderbyte, HackerRank, ...)? What was your experience?

Thanks in advance for sharing!
