parameter DetectClassesInMethodsForExportDeployment = 0:..*;1:*;2:*;
Extensible override for controlling detection of classname used in production method code. Matched class names will be included in Production Export for Deployment Action. Syntax: Delimiters like Web CSS:
  • Semi-Colon between each type-expression pair
  • Colon between type and expression
Each item indicates rules for detecting classnames for export as production dependency An item consists of a "type" and required "match token" seperated by a colon (":") Types:
  • "0" is the default. This will autodetect the assignment of a static classname string to a variable or property
    • Set ..Adapter.WebServiceClientClass = "[Classname]"
  • "1" . This will autodetect the static classname string used in both code syntax
    • $CLASSMETHOD([Classname],[Method Name],[Parameters...])
    • $PARAMETER([Classname],[Parameter Name])
  • "2" . This will autodetect the static classname used in code syntax
    • ##class([CLassname]).MethodName(...)
Match tokens can be exact or have trailing wild card ("*") Match Token examples: Evaluate any Adapter property assignment of a quoted static string to see if a valid classname
  Parameter DetectClassesInMethodsForExportDeployment="0:..Adapter.*";
Only match for Adapter assignment where property name is exactly WebServiceClientClass
  Parameter DetectClassesInMethodsForExportDeployment="0:..Adapter.WebServiceClientClass";
Export ANY use of ##class([classname]) or $CLASSMETHOD("[classname]") or $PARAMETER("[classname]")
  Parameter DetectClassesInMethodsForExportDeployment="1:*;2:*";
parameter XMLIGNORENULL = 1;
Inherited description: XMLIGNORENULL allows the programmer to override the default XML handling of empty strings for properties of type %String. By default (XMLIGNORENULL = 0), empty strings in the XML input are stored as $c(0) and $c(0) is written to XML as an empty tag. A missing tag in the XML input is always stored as "" and "" is always output to XML as no tag.

If XMLIGNORENULL is set = 1, then both missing tags in the XML and empty strings are input as "", and both "" and $c(0) are output as empty tags (i.e. <tag></tag>).

If XMLIGNORENULL is set = "inputonly", then both missing tags in the XML and empty strings are input as "". Output of "" and $c(0) are for XMLIGNORENULL = 0: $c(0) is output as an empty tag (i.e. <tag></tag>) and "" is output as no tag.

If XMLIGNORENULL = "runtime" (runtime is not case sensitive), then the behavior of XMLIGNORENULL is determined by the format parameter of XMLExport, XMLImport and %XML.Reader.OpenFile. The default behavior for XMLIGNORENULL="runtime is the same as XMLIGNORENULL=0. Adding "ignorenull" to the format argument changes the behavior to that of XMLIGNORENULL=1. "ignorenull" shoud be separated by a comma from literal/encoded part of the format. Example values for format are "", ",ignorenull", "literal,ignorenull" and "encoded,ignorenull". Note that "inputonly" is equivalent to using ,ignorenull for XMLExport and not for %XML.Reader.

parameter XMLNAME = Production;
Inherited description: This parameter provides the default XMLNAME for the class. If it is empty then the class name will be used to construct a default XML name. The default XMLNAME is used as the top level tag when exporting objects and the export context did not provide an XML container name.

classmethod %OnDelete(oid As %ObjectIdentity) as %Status
Inherited description: This callback method is invoked by the %Delete() method to provide notification that the object specified by oid is being deleted.

If this method returns an error then the object will not be deleted.

method %OnNew(initvalue) as %Status
Inherited description: This callback method is invoked by the %New() method to provide notification that a new instance of an object is being created.

If this method returns an error then the object will not be created.

It is passed the arguments provided in the %New call. When customizing this method, override the arguments with whatever variables and types you expect to receive from %New(). For example, if you're going to call %New, passing 2 arguments, %OnNew's signature could be:

Method %OnNew(dob as %Date = "", name as %Name = "") as %Status If instead of returning a %Status code this returns an oref and this oref is a subclass of the current class then this oref will be the one returned to the caller of %New method.

Create a HTML document containing the production configuration details. The HTML document appears in InterSystems online documentation style and provide links into the online documentation set in DOCBOOK.
How to use: Invoke this method passing the production name ProductionClass and a flag IncludeIntro to include a terminology introduction chapter (default is true). The method returns a status code. It also returns as output parameters the URL to display the documentation in a browser and the LogFileName to be checked in case an error occurs (if an error status code is returned).
    Set status = ##class(Ens.Config.Production).CreateDocumentHTML("Demo.Loan.FindRateProduction",1,.URL,.ErrLog)
Once the documentation is created, it will be available to be viewed from the Productions page of the Management Portal, or by pointing a browser to the returned URL.
The document is built by applying a XSL transformation to create a document expressed as DocBook XML, then using the InterSystems' DocBook utilities to load the book.
The documentation may be removed by invoking RemoveDocumentHTML().

The parameter PDFRenderer is deprecated and is ignored.

query EnumerateAlertGroups(Production As %String)
Selects AlertGroup As %String
Returns an alphabetically sorted list of all non-blank Alert Groups that are used by host items in the identified production.
query EnumerateCategories(Production As %String)
Selects Category As %String
Returns an alphabetically sorted list of all non-blank category names that are used by host items in the identified production.
query EnumerateConfigItemNames(Production As %String = "", ClassName As %String = "")
Selects Production As %String, ConfigName As %String, ClassName As %String, Comment As %String, Enabled As %Boolean
Enumerate all configuration item names whose underlying class is a subclass of the class specified by ClassName, for the given Production. This is used, for example, to list all business metrics within a given production, to support the DeepSee widget finder. It is more lightweight and faster than EnumerateConfigItems, but returns less data. If the Production string is an empty string ("") list all config item names of a particular class for all productions.
query EnumerateConfigItems(Production As %String = "", ItemType As %Integer = "", PrimaryOnly As %Boolean = 1)
Selects ConfigName As %String, CommentOrClassName As %String, Enabled As %Boolean, BusinessType As %Integer, ClassName As %String, RequestClasses As %String, ResponseClasses As %String, Production As %String, ItemId As %Integer, SeqNum As %String, BusPartner As %String, Categories As %String, AlertGroups As %String
Enumerate all config items in the given Production. Passing ItemType restricts the results to only items of the given type, for example $$$eHostTypeService. Prefixing the type with a minus sign restricts the results to all except those of the given type, for example -$$$eHostTypeService. Passing PrimaryOnly=0 will return multiple items with the same name if any exist. Otherwise only the primary (i.e. enabled) item will be returned.
query Extent()
Selects ID As %Library.RawString
SQL Query:
This is a system provided query that provides a result set containing every instance within this extent.
query ProductionStatus()
Selects Production As %String, Status As %String, LastStartTime As %String, LastStopTime As %String, StatusEnum As %String
