WFM Client Options

The Client Application object is used by the WFM Database Utility. In the Options tab you can modify the default configuration settings for both utilities.

The Client Options tab contains three sections. The options in each of these sections are described below. If you choose to use a user-created option, you can create an OptionalSettings section. See Creating New Configuration Sections and Options for instructions.

standard
Type: Mandatory
Default Value: stdout
Valid Values (log output types): stdout, stderr, syslog, network, <filename>
Dependencies: None

Type: Mandatory
Default Value: stdout
Valid Values (log output types): stdout, stderr, syslog, network, <filename>

Dependencies: None

Filters output of log messages based on their assigned priority. All enables output of all messages to the log file.

  • trace—Enables informational and error messages and disables debug messages.
  • standard—Enables error messages only and disables informational and debug messages.
  • none—Disables all messages.

Options Section

AllowLessUpdates
Type: Optional
Default Value: 0
Valid Value: 0, 1
Dependencies: None

Controls whether the Update Database to Version drop-down text box appears in the WFM Database Utility after you choose to update your database. Normally, you would only update to the latest database version. However, in some circumstances, you might need to choose to update to a database version other than the most recent one. In this case, you need to use the Update Database to Version drop-down text box.

To have the WFM Database Utility display the Update Database to Version drop-down text box, set this value to 1. To remove this drop-down text box from the WFM Database Utility interface, set this option to 0.

AllowMigratePerformance
Type: Optional
Default Value: 0
Valid Values: 0, 1
Dependencies: None

Specifies whether to enable the Performance Data Migration option in the WFM Database Utility wizard. To enable it, set this option to 1. This means that you can choose to migrate performance data from your 7.x database to your new WFM 8.x database.
