WCM and iMIS backup strategies

For those individuals already using WCM and iMIS, what backup (and system maintenance) practices have you put into place?

We feel pretty confident about our SQL backup strategy, but the only items we're finding in the official docs are for SQL at and nothing regarding iMIS itself and the WCM sites.

Modifying Public view "Search page" to include "category column" from Orders pages.

We would like to modify our public views  "search page"...../iMISpublic/Core/Search.aspx to display the "product category column"

from the pages under "orders" directory, e.g.  ...../iMISpublic/Core/Orders/Default.aspx.

Anyone can help?


Event Directions can include HTML

This is a response to the question about including HTML in Event descriptions here:   I'm posting it here so I can include a screenshot.

The Event Directions field, from Define an Event in Desktop, is rendered as an asp:Label in public view and template sites, so it can include HTML formatting for bold and hyperlinks.  The attached screenshot shows the desktop setup, with html in the Directions field, and its effect in public view.  I didn't check to see how confirmation notices would handle HTML, so you'd probably want to check "Suppress printing of directions on Confirmation Letters".

Com IBO in 15.1.2


I am in the process of upgrading a client to 15.1.2 and need to know where to find the COM IBOs for this version. Anyone know where I can get these?



eCM Support

How long will eCM be supported for? considering WCM is out and there are no more enhancements being made to eCM?

Considering eSeries is still supported, so I would presume eCM would be supported for a while.

However, if it isn't then it would be wise to let the client know not to invest in any eCM customisations as they will have to be re-developed in the near future.

Also, it would be a good way to get clients to move to WCM.

How to obtain particular versions of a an Asi assembly

As part of my efforts at trying to get the AsiMembershipProvider working, I have hit against problems because I've got old versions of certain referenced Asi assemblies.

This came as a surprise as I am using assemblies copied from the ASI\IMIS15\net\bin directory on an installation.

Just having a quick look through the assembly versions and I observe I have a mix of and versions. My suspicion is that because we upgraded from, for whatever reason some of the assemblies where not upgraded.

Building a Communities iPart

I'm looking for some direction/information on building a custom iPart that uses communities information.  Specifically I need something that will display a headline for each blog post based on the ID of a blog.  This sounds like something that one of the standard iParts should cover - but there doesn't seem to be one that's appropriate (unless someone can point me in that direction).

iMIS fails to create a new account (Incorrect syntax near the keyword 'AS'.)

Hey guys,

I'm having an issue with creating an account on our Production database through the out-of-the-box iMIS create account page. The iMIS database was upgraded from version 10.6 a few months ago (we're now on 15.1.2). (It might also be worth noting that the same error happens when we use iBO to create a customer record)

This functionality works fine on my test databases that were originally created from the Demo DB - the error only happens on our production database.

ibo for net project access?

How can I get access to:

I am getting an access denied message.


AppPrincipal and IiMISUser

I've been spending more time than I wanted, trying to figure out how to use AsiMembership provider and how it's meant to work alongside RoleProvider and Asi.iBO.dll in general. Frankly, I'm a fair amount unhappy that this kind of stuff is not documented - it seems crazy that I'm having to dig around to find out how things are supposed to integrate together.

It seems that in certain areas the custom Membership provider (AsiMembershipProvider) is not going to work well with iBO.Net.
