Issue/Introduction

In the clarity system we have a custom object with ID attribute set as auto-numbered. While trying to XOG-OUT and XOG-IN of the custom object instances, we find that the auto-numbering schema set on the object is not considered, is there a way for the XOG file to consider the auto-numbering format of the ID attribute by specifying it in the instancecode paramater?

Environment

16.0.2 and All releases

Resolution

XOG-IN (or write) the custom object instance by using the following XML tag:

  1. overrideAutoNumbering set to false. The default is true where the value from the xml is picked up and autonumbering schema on the target is ignored.   example: "overrideAutoNumbering"="false" 

    Note: The flag is available for the custom attributes of stock and custom objects. If the flag is set to TRUE, XOG content from the source is applied to the target. If the flag is set to FALSE, the autonumbering scheme defined on the target is applied.

  2. Use -1 as the value for the instanceCode parameter. example: <instance instanceCode="-1" objectCode="neo">

    EXAMPLE:
    NikuDataBus xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="../xsd/nikuxog_customObjectInstance.xsd">
     <Header action="write" externalSource="NIKU" objectType="customObjectInstance" version="16.0.1.838">
     <args name="overrideAutoNumbering" value="false"/>
     </Header>
     <customObjectInstances objectCode="neo">
      <instance instanceCode="-1" objectCode="neo">
       <CustomInformation>
           <ColumnValue name="code">-1</ColumnValue>
        <ColumnValue name="name">Instance 1</ColumnValue>
        <ColumnValue name="odf_period_end"/>
        <ColumnValue name="odf_period_start"/>
        <ColumnValue name="page_layout">odf.neoFrame</ColumnValue>
        <ColumnValue name="partition_code">NIKU.ROOT</ColumnValue>
       </CustomInformation>
       <OBSAssocs complete="false"/>
       <Security>
        <UserSecurity rightCode="odf_cst_neo_edit" userName="admin"/>
       </Security>
      </instance>
     </customObjectInstances>
    </NikuDataBus>‚Äč

Additional Information

The flag overrideAutoNumbering is defined on the XOG header and determines whether source XOG content overrides auto-numbering in the target content. The flag is available for the custom attributes of stock and custom objects.


The following rules apply: If the flag is set to TRUE, XOG content from the source is applied to the target. If the flag is set to FALSE, the auto-numbering scheme defined on the target is applied. The flag is specified in the XOG export file. By default, OverrideAutoNumbering=TRUE.
