Enhancement for sequence of Promotion Sites Hot

by Andreas Raschle on October 26, 2016

Introduction of sequence numbers for Promotion Sites similar to the level numbers for Promotion Levels.

  • ChangeMan ZMF should allow administrators to define sequence numbers for promotion sites in similar way as the level numbers for promotion levels.
    The reason behind this idea is that we want the order in which the Site Names are presented to reflect the logical order of our test environments. So far we have the problem that XML services are always adding new Sites at the end of the list and there is no (simple) way to change the order of Sites once they have been defined.
    Consequently we also request XML to consider the sequence numbers when adding Sites to Local Admin and to packages.

  • Hi Andreas,

    Actually there is a way todo this.

    As of 81x you get sort capabilities, so doesn't really matter how it is stored in the package master

    Alternative :
    Give your sites a naming convention so that the name will reflect the desired order
    Create a rex that
    a) lists all promotion sites
    b) list all promotion libraries
    c) delete all promotion libraries
    d) delete all promotion sites
    e) re-define all promotion sites in the order you desire
    f) re-define the promotion libraries

    You will see that the order is now how you want it

    This is at least how I did before the sorting facilities came along

    Best regards

    Johan
