Making the DataSources creation in SilkCentral flexible
At the moment the DataSources creation in SilkCentral is bringing several difficulties: the use of cells with null values, column order, maintenance of spreadsheets’ columns of Datasource
All this is creating random errors related to datasources creations, preventing that the datasource could be created/updated correctly.
We have problems related to:
- Type of data in the spreadsheets column during the column update (insertion of columns in between of column previously created containing a different type of data);
- Characters not permitted during upload;
We believe the use of DataDriven could be simplified and the easier utilization for the user.
At the moment it is one of the tools functionalities which we use the most and the one which shows more problems reported by the end user.
We suggest the simplification of this functionality and the improvement on the error messages presented during the creation/update of the datasources.
At the moment the displayed error messages are generic and it’s impossible to detect where the error is, the error in the datasources creation.
review of the usage of datasources and data driven scripts is being considered. Timeline and date yet to be confirmed
