Update Queue Names In Versions

Speed up JDE Upgrades, Document and Change Queue Name overrides

It's important to have Queue Names documented for many reasons: for reference, in case something stops working, to compare Queue Names across Environments or even different Systems, plus of course to help re-creating Versions in the new system after an Upgrade.

The ability to instantly update Queue Names in many versions at once delivers a huge instant time savings, plus the ability to assign groups of UBE's / Versions to different Print Queues. Firstly, it is mandatory to run certain programs in single-threaded Queues, and secondly it is beneficial to run different jobs in different queues for performance, security and convenience. Plus during the Upgrades, these Queue names may likely change, especially if they had JDE Release level hard-coded in them, like in "QB7333".

Current version: 2022.1.926 🚩 Now also in x64 bit ❗ 😀

Faster (and cheaper) JDE Upgrades? Absolutely! Most custom Versions will inevitably be lost with every Upgrade because of the changes in the parent Templates, so they will need to be re-created from scratch in the new systems. And without Version properties nicely printed in a readable format, this is a very slow and tedious task. On top of this, this same tool can also be used to instantly update bunches of Versions with the new Queue Names - no need to waste a lot of time fighting with OMW. This tool alone can shave weeks off a typical Upgrade Plan.

Reduce risks and maintenance expenses by having your known good Versions documented - when something goes wrong with a Version, there will be a reference ready to instantly rectify the problem.

Comprehensive site documentation is not a luxury, but a necessity. Wrong Queue Name defined at a Version level would cause such Version to not run on the Server at all, or produce unexpected results. This needs to be documented and periodically re-viewed.

This intelligently self-configuring software solution provides a very easy way to document Batch Versions' Print Queue assignments, as well as the ability to easily change them.

Extremely easy to use, this software offers a one-button interface with no configuration. It's immediately operational upon an installation. The users will not need to be trained to use this solution. All necessary configuration is read directly from OneWorld/EnterpriseOne all the necessary instructions are directly displayed on the tool's main screen:

The easy-to-read output of this tool is saved in PDF format.

This tool is very fast: it only takes a minute or so to produce a report for all versions in the system. It has no hardware dependencies, as it does not access any data directly.

PS: there is also another version of this tool to clear Printer setup in either or both Templated and Versions.

Limited Trial Version is available upon request.

This software is licensed with a hardware dongle, usually a USB flash drive, which needs to be physically plugged into the client computer for the software to operate.

This licensing essentially works "as a book", or "one user at a time" and so it can be any user and in any computer.

This software does not have a mechanism that allows it to be used remotely, so in Virtual environments there will be additional considerations: the USB dongle can be plugged in into the Virtual Server and then mounted in the target VM, if the VM host offers USB support. And if it does not, then this software can instead be licensed to a physical HDD, mounted in the target VM (it's an Advanced option, this is not a Virtual Disk, physical disks are not available in VM's by default).

No installation is necessary to use the software - it can be copied to and executed directly from the USB disk, or from any other directory on the target computer, as long as the licensed device is physically available on the machine.

The optional Yearly Update/Upgrade Subscription is available at the time of purchase (not available separately) for an additional yearly fee. It is payable in advance per license, per year. It includes premium support and all software updates released during the paid period. Its cost is calculated as 20% of the product's list price at the time of invoicing, as may change from time to time. Unless the software is purchased for a single use application, we generally recommend to opt in for this Subscription: any future JDE Tools Releases and Releases/Updates may require an updated version of this solution and it's generally more cost-efficient compared to one-off Upgrades.
