Upgrading a Category CS 10.5

Upgrading a Category CS 10.5

Upgrading a Category CS 10.5

(OP)
Dear LL Guru's,

I seek your support on the below questions.
1. I have a category that is used by roughly 300,000 documents. I need to add a new attribute to the category. Question is, how long will it take to upgrade to the new version?
2. If I rename an attribute, do I need to run the upgrade?

Thank you
K

RE: Upgrading a Category CS 10.5

1. I have a category that is used by roughly 300,000 documents. I need to add a new attribute to the category. Question is, how long will it take to upgrade to the new version?
Depends on what method you use if you use OOB OT Request Handler it could take some time 300000 is not a big amount. I recently upgraded an item that had to traverse 2.5 million nodes in LL with a custom tool using DA framework so LL supports it but OT OOB does not have any smart things. The approximate time it took me was 4 days. If you write a WR script you probably can get upto about 5000 to 10000 nodes per script and if you add about 4 WR threads it might give you about 20000 nodes.
2. If I rename an attribute, do I need to run the upgrade?
If you are doing this at the Category Version and say your Category Version increased by 1 then all nodes that had Version-1 will be need to be upgraded as best practice although you can upgrade folders first and then documents later and so on

BTW one other problem OT category Uprader won't tackle is if you add a new attribute and then make it mandatory, if that happens when you upgrade all folders will get upgraded but documents will get skipped because it needs a mandatory value at this juncture small organizations either hard code a value to the attribute definition or you can tweak a Opentext.ini setting that enforces this I think there is a flag under OpenText admin.index that checks if folders and documents need to obey mandatoriness


Well, if I called the wrong number, why did you answer the phone?
