Ticket #30890
Question
How can we change the library (schema) for a table being used in m-Power? We have used test schema for our development app during testing, but now would like to promote the app to production and change the development schema to a production schema.
Answer
Setting up production apps to run over production data can easily be done. To do this, you can utilize the library list functionality in your production environment, which allows you to tell m-Power which list of libraries (schemas) to look for your table in (instead of the development library/schema) in order to obtain the data. See here for more info and how to set up library lists in m-Power: https://www.mrc-productivity.com/docs/m-power-admin/setting-up-web-2-0-applications-to-handle-development-and-production-data Note that the library list functionality can be implemented at the dictionary level (all apps at runtime use the library list), or just at a single application level depending on what your needs are. If there's any questions you have, please don't hesitate to ask.
