Let's say I have an InterSystems IRIS instance with 6 Namespaces:

  • Foo1
  • Foo2
  • Foo3
  • Foo4
  • Foo5
  • Bar

And the number of Foo# namespaces can increase at any time for a number of reasons. I need to ensure that they all have identical configuration globals stored in a DB called CONFIG, so I do the following in my configuration file:

Good morning, 🙂

I would like to ask a question, which has to do with how to manage %GlobalCharacterStream representing JSONS.

Thank you for reading this question, thank you for your help, and thank you for your time and attention.

Specifically, in a certain Process, we were querying 2 Operations, whose response we were converting to a Property called "informesAutorizadosRangoFechas" (reportsAuthorizedInRangeDates) which is %GlobalCharacterStream whose content is a JSON with the same structure.

I am actually new to IRIS, and we are DevOps/PowerShell/Ansible team. We want to achieve certain administration tasks like updating Memory, Heap size, Lock size etc., in Management Portal through PowerShell. Is there any way i can achieve this without out logging in into Management portal. Off course, we have namespace, user id and password details. We have installed ODBC drive and able to update tables in the IRIS database.

I have a question about terminal, when I run a class from it that contains an error I get a report of error as I would expect, and then an apparently random three letter code is appended to the namespace name in the prompt, as shown below.

GMMHTIE>do ##class(temp.Nothing).What()

w !, tParisAnswer
<UNDEFINED>zWhat+23^temp.Nothing.1 *tParisAnswer

Then, when I try to enter a command I get an error

With my team, we're evaluating the different streams existing in order to find good pratices for our project using InterSystems IRIS. In doing so, we found that there exists different forms of the same stream with the %Stream.FileBinary and %Stream.FileBinaryGzip classes. We think that the %Stream.FileBinaryGzip takes less space to be stored, but is there other diferences between these two classes and what would you recomend to use ? Is it the same thing for %Stream.FileCharacter and %Stream.FileCharacterGzip ?

Thanks for your help,

We have an operation that sends a Rest request to an external endpoint. The request includes the secret, which shows up in the Message Viewer. While access to the Production is restricted to only those who need it, we have been asked to remove it from the Message Traces. Is there a way to hide certain information on the Message Viewer ?

Thanks for reading

Hi All,

I am working on SQL based KPI in IRIS BI. I want to remove below highlighted search text box in "auto" filter type.

We cannot use other type like only dropdown etc. Is there a way we can do this ?

One way I can see is writing own control instead of using default control but I am not aware how to do this. I didn't find any sample code for this.

Is there any sample code available for writing custom control which I can refer.

Please assist
