FYI: Promoting UDC Codes in OMW of XE

Hi List/Forum,

I have just found an interesting document on the KG about "Object Management Workbench and User Defined Code Tables".
Maybe it is known issue for many of you but could be unknown for some of you and so could be useful to know about it.

The substance is: when you promote UDC codes with a project in OMW then OMW will manage not only the added/modified/deleted UDC Codes but will copy the entire UDC Table (Type).
BE CAREFUL!

Please check out the ott-01-0049 documentation from the KG or see the attachment here (on the Forum only) for details.

I haven't made experiments with this issue yet, so I can not add any other solution for this issue other than the "work arround" in the mentioned documentation.

Could there be a similar issue for MENU promotion too (and/or other Control Table stored "objects")?

Regards,
Zoltán

Yes, I have seen this happen with UDCs. I assume the same would happen with Menus. As a workaround I would suggest to change the activity rules for Control Table copies from the OMW so they apply to a admin-user only. This way PUBLIC will not copy UDCs from DEV to PY automatically. (I did not try this out yet.)
Of course, the workaround suggested in the KG document would work, if you could dicipline all your developers!
