  • Editing Source Application Event Types
    Source application event types—either database triggers or business events—are the tables that are activated for this source application. Before any data can flow through QXO, you must manually select which event types to turn on for each source application you define. The event types are not active by default because there is a performance impact associated with the lookups QXO must do for each event.
    You can edit the available events to make particular tables inactive for this source application. This can be accomplished under the event types node under the appropriate source application.
    If you deactivate a table, the trigger for that table in the source application still executes, but no record is written.
    Click Event Types under the source application. The Event Types overview screen displays.

    Event Types
    Edit event filter for database events and non-DDP business events.
    Event filter is a filter on database records that determines whether an event should be raised. You can use Event Filter to prevent unwanted events from being raised, instead of having the event service or publisher determine its usability. It is especially useful when you want certain events from tables with high-volume data changes.
    The entered filter uses Progress 4GL expressions and will be verified when you save the configuration. For example, if you enter a filter pt_prod_line = 10 for event type ItemMaintenance, events will be raised only for item records with product line equal to 10.
    Select the Active check box to activate a data object; clear the Active check box to deactivate a data object. The Active check box indicates if data should be extracted for this data object. If not, the triggers still execute in QAD Enterprise Applications, but no data is extracted.
    If you selected the Active check box, the Data Object Listening window pops up. The window displays all the business objects and data objects associated with the event type using the following formats:
    BusinessObject/DataObject * for data objects at the top level of business objects with the asterisk indicating that it is a top-level data object
    BusinessObject/.../DataObject for data objects at lower levels of business objects. To see the full path of a data object under the business object, move the mouse cursor over or double-click the abbreviated pathname.
    A warning symbol displays if a business object is not registered to any message publisher.
    Select the data objects you want to listen to the event type; then click OK.
    Important: You must activate the event types as well as configure the data objects to listen to the event types before any data extraction can take place. No data will be extracted for an inactive event type or an active event type with no data objects set to the listening mode. Also, do not activate any event types or turn on the listening mode for any data objects you do not plan to register with any event service to be processed.

    Data Object Listening Configuration
    Click Save to save your changes.
    Important: If you navigate to other screens without saving, any changes you made to the event type and data object configurations before your last save will be lost.
