Problems setting Feature Action state in Suite project InstallScript

Jump to solution

Hello, 

I'm having trouble to set features to install or remove from the Installscript during OnBegin events inside Suite project.

The thing I'm trying to do is to send a property via command line and read it in the OnBegin flow using the following code:

rv = SuiteGetProperty("ADMIN", strAdminFeatures);
	if (rv >= 0) && (StrCompare(strAdminFeatures,"") != 0) then
		rv = SuiteSetProperty("FeatureCheckboxAdmin", strAdminFeatures);
		StrToNum(nVar,strAdminFeatures);
		if (nVar > 0) then
			rv = SuiteSetProperty("FEATURE[AdminTools].actionstate", "install");
		else
			rv = SuiteSetProperty("FEATURE[AdminTools].actionstate", "remove");
		endif;
		SuiteLogInfo("SetPreselectedFeatures: Set admin feature to %s", strAdminFeatures);
		bHasPreselectedFeature = TRUE;
	endif;

 And my log lines are:

6-23-2019[05:13:42 PM]: Engine: property 'FeatureCheckboxAdmin' value now '0'
6-23-2019[05:13:42 PM]: Engine: property 'FEATURE[AdminTools].actionstate' value now 'remove'

What may be the problem here?

Is there an easier way to set "silent mode switches"?

 

Thanks.

See if below properties works for you :)

"The following properties have special meaning to the Advanced UI or Suite/Advanced UI installation when they are passed on the command line:

• ISFeatureInstall—This property provides a comma-delimited list of feature names that are to be installed with the current installation operation. It is intended for a silent first-time installation.

• ISFeatureRemove—This property provides a comma-delimited list of feature names that are to be removed with the current installation operation. It is intended for maintenance installations."

InstallScript Package

If you are configuring the Install and Modify operations for an InstallScript package, you can use the Advanced UI and Suite/Advanced UI properties ISFeatureInstall and ISFeatureRemove in your command line. The InstallScript function FeatureConfigureFeaturesFromSuite uses these properties to set feature states for the InstallScript package.

You can set these properties to a comma-delimited list of feature names as follows in the Command Line setting and the Silent Command Line setting:

ISFeatureInstall=Feature1,Feature2 ISFeatureRemove=Feature3

In the above example, Feature1 and Feature2 are selected to be installed; Feature3 is selected to be removed, if it is present.

If any features are used in the values of both properties, the features that are set for the ISFeatureRemove property supersede the ISFeatureInstall property.

Re: Problems setting Feature Action state in Suite project InstallScript

Hi,

Could you please verify that this statement is or is not valid:

rv = SuiteSetProperty("FEATURE[AdminTools].actionstate", "install");

I don't think it is, and that this pseudo property isn't available in an suite InstallScript.  Is there any other way to retrieve the value of the feature.

Thanks!
