Server Objects

Hi,

I'm updating a qvw that has some obects created by the users. If I replace that qvw with the new one, what happens to those objects?

Thanks!

Nope.  You should be fine as long as you don't touch that .shared file.

As long as you don't delete the .shared file on the server, the objects should persist.

and it doesn't matter if I have changed like 90% of the layout? I haven't touched any expression/dimension/variable... just visuals

The .shared files are what contain any server objects.  Are you sure people had created any?

You can find an explanation of .shared and .meta files here: why .shared and .meta folders will create after accessing the qvw from access point ? what it contai...

Re: Server Objects

Hi,

Everything has been working great with the .shared files, now I've found some .shared and .meta files of qvws that don't exist anymore, can I delete them? or should I take care with that?

Re: Server Objects

As long as you don't need to worry about the .qvws coming back, there is no reason to keep them.
