Upgrading to CM 9.3.1.300. Why is there no Open Documents Options in CM 9.3%3F

Hi 

We are upgrading to CM 9.3.1.300.  I noticed that there no Open Documents Options in CM 9.3.  Is this function no longer required?

I used CM9 two years back, but now using HPE RM.

Not 100% sure what you mean by 'Open Record'. If you mean editing a document like a spreadsheet or a docx, that is still controlled by 'Edit'.

They only time I get someone complaining that they can't open/edit a document within that environment is when the document has been finalized. At that point there are no permissions for anyone to do that anymore and the finalization has to be manually reset.

Hope this is of assistance.

Hi @Peter Madden 

That functionality has indeed been removed from the client.

If you need to set any of the settings you can do so via registry settings in HKEY_CURRENT_USER/SOFTWARE\Micro Focus\Content Manager\OpenDocuments;

 

The following are REG_DWORD in hexadecimal seconds (14 = 20 seconds);
MinimumDelay=14
MinimumDelayDiscard=3c
CheckinPollingInterval=5
MinimumCloseInterval=14

The following is REG_DWORD 1 or 0 (1 = Yes/On, 0 = No/Off);
ConfirmWhenProcessOpen=1

The following is a REG_SV as a Folder/File Path (C:/AutoCheckin/AutoCheckin.log) or nothing for no log;
LogFile=

 

 

The following is from the 9.1 help file (with the reg key added in red);

  • Wait for user confirmation before checking in when the authoring application is not running (or if the authoring application is not known) - selected by default - select for Content Manager to wait for user confirmation before checking in the document ConfirmWhenProcessOpen
  • When a document has been closed and possibly ready for check-in, prompt for confirmation after n seconds - to set the when the reminder window should appear MinimumCloseInterval
  • Refresh the contents of the open documents pane every n seconds - to set the refresh rate for the Open Documents pane list of open documents CheckinPollingInterval
  • Minimum wait time (seconds) before a document can be automatically checked in - default 30 seconds - to make sure that applications that are slow to start up have actually started before Content Manager attempts to check in their open document MinimumDelay
  • Additional wait time (seconds) before checking in documents unchanged (allows time for application to start up) - default 900 seconds - to make sure that applications that are slow to start up have actually started before Content Manager attempts to check in their unchanged document MinimumDelayDiscard
  • Log activity of automatic check-in processor - select to log the Content Manager check-in activity
    • Name of automatic check-in log file - if logging is selected, to enter the path to the log file LogFile

 

Hope this is of assistance.

Good Luck.

AG.
