Hi developers,

We're hosting a User Group session for our Deltanji source control and Serenji debugger users on Wednesday, November 3rd at 11-12pm EDT / 3-4pm GMT.

We'll be showcasing some advanced features of Deltanji and Serenji in VS Code with time for a discussion - so feel free to bring along any problems you need help solving or share your feedback on our tools. We'd love to hear your thoughts. 

You can find out more on Eventbrite

Everyone is welcome. If you're interested in our tools this is a great chance to hear what others have to say, as well as asking your own questions.

We hope to see you on November 3rd!

Interoperability Read Only access

In companies, most of the time, we have test, stage and production environments.

It is very common that we, the developers, do not have the right to modify or touch the production directly because all the modifications must be traced in a versioning tool and tested before a production release.

However, a read access to the production (especially to the traces) can allow us to better understand a possible bug.

That's why I propose this ZPM module that creates a new role in IRIS that allows access to the productions and this only in read-only with access to the visual traces.

The InterSystems Certification Team is building an InterSystems IRIS Integration Specialist certification exam and is looking for Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) from our community to help write questions. You, as a valued InterSystems community member, know the challenges of working with our technology and what it takes to be successful at your job.

I work as an Integration Engineer for United States Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). I work on a Health Connect production which processes many RecordMap files. I do not fully understand RecordMaps and I wanted to develop an application for the Interoperability contest where I could learn more about working with RecordMaps. I browsed InterSystems documentation for inspiration on how to start. I was happy to find CSV Record Wizard.

The latest release of Serenji focuses on the debug experience. Not only can you now debug on the spot, no matter where you are or what you're doing, but we've also added some smaller features that will make debugging more straightforward. 

  • Run and Debug CodeLenses - clickable links above each class method, procedure, subroutine or extrinsic function.
  • Intuitive prompting for entrypoints and arguments - when debugging a class method, produce, subroutine or extrinsic function. 
  • Shaded read-only background - to clearly differentiate between documents which are editable and those that are read-only. 
  • Program output in debug console - output is shown in the debug console. 
  • Serenji commands on Server Manager's namespace trees - allowing you to launch Serenji through Server Manager.

Successful Troubleshooting

During the last weeks, I was working on various issues and problems related to SW development.
I found that quite often problem analysis was mostly chasing issues just on the surface
but not really attacking the deeper reasons of the problem and follow the consequences.
It's like the doc that stops your leg bleeding but doesn't see that it is broken.

Does anyone know of a relatively quick and straightforward way of converting code written in the old dot scoping syntax with argumentless do (see here for reference: https://docs.intersystems.com/latest/csp/docbook/DocBook.UI.Page.cls?KEY=RCOS_cdo_legacy) to the modern parentheses scoping syntax? It's not too bad to do it by hand, but it's also easy to make a mistake and leave a "quit" in an if statement by accident for example.

Hi Developers, I am glad to announce Git for IRIS, my first submission to OpenExchange and part of the current Developer Tools Contest.

Git for IRIS is a source control package that aims to facilitate a native integration of the Git workflow with the InterSystems IRIS platform. It is designed to work as a transparent link between IRIS and a Git-enabled code directory that, once setup, requires no user interaction. A detailed description can be found on GitHub.

Have you ever seen those vaccum compressed towels, that look like a pill and after you add water became a towel?

That's our challenge for today. As usual shortest solution wins.

Task

You will receive an integer number and you will return a new number where each digit is repeated a number of times equals to its value.

Input:

Introduction
Several resources tell us how to run IRIS in a Kubernetes cluster, such as Deploying an InterSystems IRIS Solution on EKS using GitHub Actions and Deploying InterSystems IRIS solution on GKE Using GitHub Actions. These methods work but they require that you create Kubernetes manifests and Helm charts, which might be rather time-consuming.
To simplify IRIS deployment, InterSystems developed an amazing tool called InterSystems Kubernetes Operator (IKO). A number of official resources explain IKO usage in details, such as  New Video: Intersystems IRIS Kubernetes Operator and InterSystems Kubernetes Operator.

In this article, we’ll look at one of the ways to monitor the InterSystems IRIS data platform (IRIS) deployed in the Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE). The GKE integrates easily with Cloud Monitoring, simplifying our task. As a bonus, the article shows how to display metrics from Cloud Monitoring in Grafana

Note that the Google Cloud Platform used in this article is not free (price list), but you can leverage a free tier. This article assumes that you already have a project in the Google Cloud Platform (referred to as <your_project_id>) and have permission to use it.
