I'm not entirely sure I'm in the right place to ask this question. I thought this might be the solution to my issue but it doesn't appear to be.
My problem is. I have two apps that are saved to the server. The output of App #1 is the “####.yxdb” file that is the input in App #2…(pictured). “####.yxdb” is saved on my company network drive. For both apps, I have set all the dependencies as UNC.
In App #2, the user selects from a list of file options (‘User Selection from Columns’) that is then used to create a raft of reports. My problem is that the “####.yxdb” input file does not refresh when App #1 is completed. Therefore the list of file options is not complete.
I have tried to research everything I can think of, and can’t seem to find a solution. I thought the UNC setting would fix it but it doesn’t. Any suggestions would be gladly welcomed.
If I'm understanding you correctly, you have a chained app - App1 then App2. When app 1 completes, it results in a YXDB, and you want that exact YXDB that was just created to be used as an input for App2. Is that correct?
If so, the trick is that when you send App1 to the Gallery, include the YXDB1 as an asset. When App1 is run in the gallery, it will create YXDB1 in temp space created just for that user, just for that run. App2, which is chained, will pick up that temp YXDB as it's input.
I might not have explained myself properly. App 1 and App 2 are not chained as such. App 1 is used by multiple users to append updated data to the final outcome, which is the "####.yxdb" file. Then the user of App 2, typically not the same as an App 1 user, takes this YXDB file to create a variety of reports.
App 1 may be run multiple times throughout a month, and then App 2 is typically run once a month at month end.
Do you have it "unchecked" as an asset when you send up the apps? Meaning when you send up App1 and App2 to the Gallery, make sure the YXDB in question is not sent up with it. That will allow the apps to reach back down to the file on the network drive.
