Expose additional fields in FNMS Web UI

Jump to solution

Hi,

we've recently implemented FlexNet Manager Suite 2019 R2 and are in need to either have one additional Counter field or at least the internal ContractID from our FNMSCompliance database being exposed in the Web UI within the Contracts. Would this be somehow possible in a similar way like creating custom properties (which we did already successfully). Any examples or hints are welcome on how to best approach this to get a unique identifier for each and every Contract in the future.

Thanks & best regards

Roman and Oliver

If you have FNMS On-Premises, you can also expose a SQL View as a Custom View within the UI to generate a report that includes the internal rowid of the Contract table.

If you have FNMS Cloud, I am not sure of a way to expose this internal field from the Database.

What is the Use Case for this?  Each contract that you create within FNMS must have a unique Contract Number, so that could be used as the unique identifier.

We solve such requirements as follows:

1. Create an appropriate custom field in the WebUi
2. Fill the Custom Field with the appropriate data using the Business Adapter Studio.
In your case you determine the Contract No and the internal ContractID via SQL query, take the Contract No as matching criteria in the BAS (incl. "never update this property") and update in this step only the Custom Property with the value of the internal ContractID.

Best,

Dennis
