Hi, Community!

We are pleased to invite you to the InterSystems UK Developer Community Meetup on 17th of October!

The UK Developer Community Meetup is an informal meeting of developers, engineers, and devops to discuss successes and lessons learnt from those building and supporting solutions with InterSystems products.

When starting a post, especially for the beginner there are a lot of buttons, check marks, icons etc. On some of them when you hover you get a very brief descriptions. In reading through some of the responses to the Developer Community Feedback there is a lot of good information.

Could one of the moderators, who know all the tricks put together a one or two page "cheat sheet?" or beginner guide?

This "Cheat Sheet" would be of great help!

I get the impression that there is a great push to encourage others to use the Developers Community.

But maybe many try and become frustrated and quit before they really give it a chance. I see myself in this group.

To those, a "Cheat Sheet" will be of great value.

A link to this should be prominently displayed.

Hi, Community!

It's October and we have new DC release here. What's new?

1. InterSystems Single Sign-On for Global Masters

As you maybe heard about InterSystems Global Masters (GM) program. With this release, we introduced InterSystems SSO support for GM. So now everyone who has active WRC account can join GlobalMasters and no special invitation needed. You are welcome! 
How it works:

You can use your previous credentials as well. And you can get the invite also - just comment here or in this post.

Hi, Community!

I'm pleased to announce that we deployed a new release of Developer Community.

With this release we introduce:

1. New post type is introduced: Announcement

Choose Announcement as a post type if you want to say about a new product or feature release, about some new services in your company, if it is event announcement or there is a new job position open in your company.

E.g. here is an announcement, this is another example of event announcement and this very post is an announcement too

I am confused about the meaning of "rating".

Is it how good the post is?

I did a search on "Rating" and got a lot of hits, but none seems to answer my question, either that or I missed it.

It would be nice to have some basic documentation on questions like these.

I don't mean to be difficult and maybe I don't understand, but what is the reason for having a rating?

Hello all.

I think the forum experience is great as whole, but it could improve even more if we had somewhere to share our ideas. So that's why I'm creating a thread dedicated for that purpose. Maybe this way someone from InterSystems could catch something good?

Hi, Community!

For those developers who are attending Global Summit 2017 this year: you have an opportunity to share your solutions, framework, and experience with the rest GS attendees and Developer Community.

On Monday 11th we would have Developer Community Sessions in Tech Exchange Open House (see the agenda).

Every presenter would have 10 minutes for slides and 5 minutes for questions. So we have 6 slots available at the moment.

We would have a live stream of the event on DC YouTube so you would be able to watch it and ask questions in comments to the streaming over Internet.

When I go to search Austrian members I call

https://community.intersystems.com/members
and enter .at as filter for email. Result = OK.

 

but the resultset is lager than the space in display and I get this box at bottom

clicking to any of the boxes takes a while (e.g "2") and brings me (here) page 2 of ALL members.
Which wasn't  the intention.

Some analysis of the page shows me that after refresh all boxes are  anchors but just with the page number.
The original filter is lost:

 

 The marked href doesn't change whatever filter you apply

When I'm searching across the community I find lots of interesting questions sometimes with
excellent answers and suggestions. Quite often It's more than one solution.
Then I'm mostly missing an indication which solution worked or that nothing worked at all or the case was dropped.

I understand a community as partners working together, sharing experience and knowledge.
Many participants seem to have the same understanding and share their results.

But a surprising high number of participants are just CONSUMERS not giving any feedback or sharing a result.
This is quite disappointing to me. Sometimes these consumers react on a reminder.

The key event to raise that subject in public was: Getting no reaction at all. Even with reminder.
Following the questions of this specific consumer I found that no question ever got useful feedback

DC has developed to a rich and useful and active platform for developers in the InterSystems world.
And has a big advantage: It is  really embedded into InterSystems' customer interface.

The sad thing about is that it has a solid base of early adopters but related to the installed base
the growth rate of participants seems to me quite moderate and could be higher.

So I suggest to use the upcoming Global Summit and even more the local events that follow on
(e.g. German Symposium and similar events) to promote DC and bring the message to the local
developers (especially in Europe) that could not attend Global Summit.

Speaking for my area Developers Community and its capacity was rather unknown
or poorly used and it was definitely not pushed.

So massive promotion of DC is required

I was trying to find an article today that I knew had been posted about Wireshark installations causing problems with Studio and other Caché components. If I search the community for 'Wireshark install', the article I'm looking for does not even show up. I found it eventually in the text of one of the Digest post, but this is the article:

https://community.intersystems.com/post/wireshark-installer-could-affect-studioexe-and-csystrayexe-windows

How could that possible not show up for a search for 'Wireshark install'? I've had similar issues looking for other posts, but similarly found them in a Digest post and just didn't bother reporting it. Have others had similar problems? Can anything be done about this?

I know this has been requested before, but it's really annoying, especially in the Developer Community.

Here is my typical workflow:

 

1. Click "Developer Community" forum

2. Click "Post question".

3. Select "Developer Community" in Group dropdown.

4. Select "Developer Community" in Related Topic dropdown.

 

Yes, 3 out of 4 steps to post a new question here require me to select the same thing.  It's frustrating.  Here I go again!

suggestions to try to make the searching of the community better, more relevent

I've been searching within the community for an article about troubleshoting SQL's working out how efficient they are, and how to look inside the system for other SLQ's that we used but may be inefficient,  (still haven't found it, and getting frustrated)

In this instance, after many guesses, I tried

sql "how to" analyze plan tutorial efficiency inefficient troubleshooting highest

I know I've seen the article about this very subject, but it's getting darned hard to find things in the community.

I'm guessing what to search for I know an article exists, and its not a question.

so what about some better filtering of results.

based upon some of  google's search tools, what abou
