Editing Configuration for User Management

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

If using edit functionality as well as WebOffice usermanagement the fields configured in this configuration element are used to automatically store information like

the user who edited or created the object and

the time stamp when the edit transaction or create transaction was committed.

 

Notes: 

-If configured, the fields for creating user and changing user have to be in the feature class and of type text with a minimum length of 20.

-If configured, the fields for creating time stamp and changing time stamp have to be in the feature class and of type date if using Oracle or SQL Server (optional text (minimum length 20)).

-The four mentioned fields are mandatory and have to exist in the feature class.

-The field for client specific values ('CLIENT_ID') may also be configured. If you do not want to use a client ID do not edit the default value! If editing, a field in the feature class is mandatory.

-If physical deletion is set to "No", a field of type text for the logical delete operation is mandatory and has to exist in the feature class and the respective definition query has to be specified in the layer properties.

-On project configuration level it is possible to deactivate the "Editing configuration for User Management" for certain edit layers. This way editing on the corresponding layer can be made available, although it does not provide the columns that are necessary to store the metadata. For configuration details see parameter "Use UM editing config" in chapter Edit Layers.

 

Important Note: 

ArcGIS provides a similar feature called "editor tracking" to document user and time regarding feature creation/editing. Consider the following points if you are also using ArcGIS editor tracking:

the attribute fields storing WebOffice usermanagement "creating user" and "changing user" (i.e. by default "CREATE_BY" and "CHANGE_BY") MUST NOT be the same as are used for editor tracking (ArcGIS default names: "created_user", "last_edited_user")!

the attribute fields storing WebOffice usermanagement "create time stamp" and "change time stamp" (i.e. by default "CREATE_DAT" and "CHANGE_DAT") may overlap with the ones used by editor tracking (ArcGIS default names: "created_date", "last_edited_date"). Be aware that in this case, time stamps saved by WebOffice 10.8 SP2 may be overwritten by ArcGIS editor tracking.

However, VertiGIS will recommend the use of ArcGIS editor tracking only if separate attribute fields for the WebOffice 10.8 SP2 Editing Configuration for User Management and ArcGIS editor tracking are configured.

Delete objects physically?

Determines whether to physically (true) or logically (false) delete objects.

In case of logical delete the field for "logical delete operation" is used to store the information whether the object has been deleted or not.

Note: In order to use these field, do not forget to specify the according definition query in the layer properties.

Example: "DELETED" = 'false'

Field for logical delete operation

Field of type text for logical delete operation.

WebOffice 10.8 SP2 writes the value 'true' in the field when deleting logically. Thus, the other value should be 'false'. It is possible to use a text domain at the field where the codes are 'true' or 'false'.
