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
