  • Allow character data type field to be initialized as GUID

    • Under Review
    • 0 Comments
    I know there are other discussions about adding a GUID data type or other such methods to accomplish this. However, several applications have already been using a GUID and storing it in a character field. This idea would allow for a character field...
  • Allow prostrct list when db path is wrong

    • Under Review
    • 0 Comments
    If you copy the DB to different path and you have no valid .st file there is no way to repair the db. The list command should always work and just export the .st files with the current paths (or maybe just with dots). The user can then correct them manually...
  • fix idxcheck utility to finish scanning the entire index in the event that there...

    sequence corruption breaks the idxcheck utility by causing it to either loop indefinitely if the recid sequence corruption is pointing backwards to a previously scanned recid, or will cause it to skip past recids completely if pointed forward towards...
  • OpenEdge should support Cancel request for long running SQL queries through JDBC...

    A normal user runs a SQL query with a tool like Squirrel and noticed that a function needs longer than expected. (a bad written function can result in a full table scan!) Pressing "Cancel" has no effect because OpenEdge still doesn't not...
  • Make TDE tenant configurable

    At this point, since all multi-tenant objects need to reside in Type II areas, it's is not possible to configure TDE per area / tenant. It's only possible to enable TDE per table / index / LOB which means that each of those would result in encryption...
  • Add indexes to _file and _index

    I often want to iterate over the application-specific records in _file or _index, e.g.: for each _file no-lock where _tbl-type = 't': // do stuff end. for each _index no-lock where not _index-name begins "_": // do other stuff end...
  • Make offline and online backup to show same output.

    Probkup offline and online output different outputs. Could online backup gain those two lines in bold from offline backup? Offline backup: 0 BI blocks will be dumped. (6688) The blocksize is 8192. (6994) Backup requires an estimated 885.0...
  • Permit cross-platform database restore

    Restore of an OpenEdge database backup is currently only possible on the same platform (OS and hardware architecture) on which the backup was taken, e.g. from Windows to Windows, Linux x64 to Linux x64, Linux PPC to Linux PPC, etc. Enhancement request...
  • Add functionality to run script before db start

    We often have a situation where we identify some maintenance that needs to be done on a database that is offline. The problem is that often the person who ends up doing the database restart isn't someone who would know what they are doing to perform...
  • Provide index cursor statistics in VSTs or promon

    • Under Review

    Although the 4GL client provides various logging options to record the creation and deletion of dynamic objects, we are finding in certain circumstances that it is very difficult to identify which specific client might be responsible for non-reproducible...
