Asset Manager documentation - include a database differences section in the release notes between ve

Hi all,

in releases past, there were database difference documents. For example,  in the AM 9.32 release notes, there was a section called "Database scheme change". (yes, this is old)

In the current release notes, we don't note any database differences between versions. Perhaps just a section to say "no database scheme changes between AM 95x, AM 96x and AM 97x". Something like that.

Just a note if there are database changes.

Might also include references to the SLO package that alters the db structure for that part to work.

Thanks,

David

Hello,

There is one way to see the structural differences.
Once you install AM, there is a folder as example:
C:\Program Files (x86)\HPE\Asset Manager 9.60 fr\doc\infos

You will see variety of *.xml and *.html files for every version of AM.

For example, in file diff932.html you will see the differences between 9.6x and 9.32

I suggest opening the *.html format as it is more “user-friendly”.

You will paragraphs such as (for example):
For newly inserted table:

Inserted table (SQL Name: amHealthCheckItem)
##Main field: lHCItemId
##Main index: HCI_lHCItemId

lHCItemId

##Type: Long
##Size: 4

dtLastModif

##Type: Date+Time
##Size: 8

and so on...
--------------------------------------------------

Or for modified table:

Modified table (SQL Name: amHistory)

Deleted objects

## History_lHistObjId

Inserted objects

## History_lHistObjIddtLastM

##Duplicates: yes
##Null Value: yes
##Fields: lHistObjId,dtLastModif


Modified objects

## HistObjTable

Size - Old value : '19', New value : '26'

 

I hope that helps.
