[Workaround] OMS View Designer Pitfall alias Bug ?

5 Jul

 

In my last post I warned you for a design time issue when using the “Data-flow verification” on the Tile. (https://michelkamp.wordpress.com/2016/07/05/oms-view-designer-pitfall-alias-bug/ )

Now because I was of course myself hit by this and afraid losing my just designed dashboard I looked for a way to just open it behind the screen.

And I found a workaround.

Steps to take:

Open the OMS home Page

 

Now press F12 (using IE)

And (1) select the DOM Explorer. Now (2) and (3) select your custom designed View / dashboard and copy the GUID (4)

 

 

Now copy the URL form the current OMS page (1)

 

Edit the URL as below:

Replace the GUID after ?Solutionid= with the GUID you got from above step (4)

https://e1a1111-1d01-101a-1111-11ef1111c1cf.portal.mms.microsoft.com/?returnUrl=%2f#Workspace/overview/solutions/details/index?solutionId=11111f1e-7e1d-1c1f-1afc-1b1e11ebc11b&_timeInterval.intervalDuration=604800

Open a new IE tab

And paste this new URL above. And yes you are in !!!! Now first to do is to disable the Data-flow verification feature and save the dashboard.

Happy OMS’ing

OMS View Designer Pitfall alias Bug ?

5 Jul

Hi OMS’ers,

Just a short post to warn you for a nasty situation during designing your fantastic OMS dashboards using the brand new View designer. (Public preview)

When you add a Tile you will have the feature called “Data-flow verification”. This feature will enable you to put a message on the Tile when no data records are found in the OMS system.

This is a handy feature because you don’t want to show an empty dashboard…. But this could also raise an issue during design time.

Because … what will happen when you have setup the “Data-flow verification” to check the past x days for any data but have made a typo or the data isn’t flowing in any more…. Yes of course the dashboard will show the message you specified but you will get more (for free) ….

You CAN NOT open your custom view (dashboard) any more to edit it !!! So you are somewhat stuck here … ; – (

Be warned!

 

So here the steps to see what happens:

Open de View designer

 

Add the Ttile , and enable the Data-flow verification

 

Now look at the tile when you add the query, it will give you a error when it hasn’t got any data back. So this will indicate you are going to have this issue….

 

Now save the dashboard.

And try to open it from the Home page……

 

Happy OMS’ing
