Mobile application FAQ

Why won’t the mobile app sync in online mode (Error "Item% 24 batch not found)?

Online sync errors are often associated with the “on-site” deployment of bpm’online. Certain combinations of the IIS, .NET Framework, and ASP.NET services screen special characters ($ character) in website URLs. The mobile app cannot connect to the bpm’online website because of that.

To omit the “$” character while generating request URLs , introduce a different type of query generation by setting up configuration files on the bpm’online server. To do this:

1.Open the [bpm’online root directory path]\Web.config file with any text editor, e.g. Notepad. Find the <appSettings> part and add the following line:

<add key="aspnet:UseLegacyRequestUrlGeneration" value="true" />

Save the changes.

2.Make the same adjustments to the [bpm’online root directory path]\Terrasoft.WebApp\Web.config configuration file.

3.Restart the web site in IIS and clear the Redis server cache.

How to resolve the synchronization conflict in the offline mode?

If the conflict occurred because of access permission during the synchronization with the desktop application, you can resolve it by canceling the modifications you made in the mobile application.

Case

The administrator has restricted the access rights to edit the account type for all employees (Fig. 1). The mobile user changes the account type in the offline mode. During the synchronization process the user gets notification about conflict (Fig. 2).

To resolve the conflict:

1.Tap the [Review issues] button.

2.Select a record that invoked a conflict of insufficient permissions in the synchronization log.

3.Tap the [Revert changes] button (Fig. 3).

As a result, all changes made in the account’s record will be reverted and the record will be removed from the synchronization log. Local record will be updated with the latest data from the desktop application.

You can send a request for an access permission to administrator. More details about actions with records in the log are described in a separate article. Read more >>> 

How to clear the mobile app cache?

You can clear the mobile app cache in one of the following options:

  • Enter the [Settings] section of the mobile application and tap the [Clear cache] button(Fig. 4).

  • Log out of the application and login to another bpm’online site, for example, to a trial version. In this case, the app cache will be cleaned automatically.

  • Perform the cache cleanup of the mobile device.

Attention

After cleaning the mobile application cache, all data modifications that were made offline and not synchronized with the main application will be deleted.
