In this section you can define settings for the QPR Modeling Plugin.
Page Generation and Model Loading
This section is used to define settings for pages opened in the Processes tab in QPR Portal.
If the "Allow usage of old model version while loading" check box is checked in the Model web page generation section, then old versions of process models are available for users during load of a newer version. If the box is unchecked, the old model is unavailable when the Web Client is loading a new version.
In the Models loaded at startup section you can configure which QPR Modeling Client models are loaded into memory when QPR Web Application Server is started. Select the option you want from the drop-down menu. The options are:
•No models: no models are loaded into memory at startup.
•All models: all existing models are loaded into memory at startup.
•Models from previous WAS session: the models that were in memory the last time QPR Web Application Server was running are loaded into memory at startup. This list is automatically maintained by QPR Web Application Server.
•Models listed in the LoadModelsToMemory key: The LoadModelsToMemory key is a comma-separated list of model IDs of models. This setting is maintained manually in QPR_Servers.ini file. If there are model IDs listed in this key and this option is selected, the listed models are loaded into memory at startup.
•LoadModelsToMemory and previous WAS session models: The models listed in the LoadModelsToMemory key and the models that were in memory the last time QPR Web Application Server was running are loaded into memory at startup. This option is the default value.
If the "Open external models in a new browser window" checkbox is checked and the link to an external model is clicked, the external model is opened in a new browser window. If the option is unchecked, the external model is opened in the current browser window. This setting can be overridden by model-specific web publishing settings in QPR Modeling Client.
The "Load models from cache if available" setting defines whether models in file cache are used during QPR Web Application Server startup in the case the model exists in cache and it is up to date. If the model is not cached or it is not up to date, the model is read from the QPR BizArchitecture Server.
What's New Page
Here you can define settings for the What's new page of the QPR Portal. To load the default What's new page settings, select the "Default" option in the Listing settings field. To use custom settings, select the "Custom" option.
If you select the custom page settings, you can set the minimum and maximum number of entries to show for QPR Modeling Client element types on the What's new page either by entering a new value manually to the field or by using the arrows on the right side of the field to scroll to the desired value. Note that these settings do not affect the Summary mode of the What's New but the listings for a single element type instead.
You can also define the maximum number of days for which an event is displayed on the What's new page. By default, the what's new list includes only events that have occurred within the past 7 days.
The Flow Charts section controls the settings for generating flowcharts.
The Picture storage radio buttons allow you to select whether to save the images in your computer's memory or to its hard disk.
The Image format drop-down menu lets you choose whether to save the images in PNG or JPEG format. JPEG-images are good for small and medium flowcharts whose colors are somewhat homogenous. PNG-images can be used for large files and/or files with a lot of details and different colors.
You can define whether there will always be links to flowcharts in the Details view by selecting the Always provide a link to a flowchart checkbox.
