You've analyzed the performance of your application or UBE, and after working with the DBA, you've all decided that adding an index to the F0911 is the best way to speed up your slow process. You tell your developer who goes in to Table Design Aid in OMW and adds the new index. They check in the table and the CNC promotes it to Production, after which a package is built and deployed. The only thing left is to generate the new index in Production. The CNC opens OMW, goes to Table Design Aid, clicks the Table Operations tab, and clicks Generate Indexes.
Well it's Spring, finally. That means it is time to take a quick look at your system for opportunities to do some cleaning. DreamWriters and in particular Dreamwriter recursive versions are always a great place to start. Many folks forget about the need to periodically clear out their recursive versions until they start to have issues. It is good practice to purge them out at least once if not twice a year. Along with that exercise, take the time to review just 10 DreamWriters a month. Look for stale ones, if you start with older ones left over from pre A9.x days you are generally pretty safe deleting them.
I received a request from a client to display Date Requested and the week number of the year this date falls-in.

Keep it short and simple; keep it simple and straightforward; keep it short and sweet, or an American hard rock band formed in January of 1973 in New York City. No matter how you slice it, KISS has its place in today's business environment. The "keep it simple stupid" (KISS) principle is a rule of design that implies that systems perform their best when they have simple designs rather than complex ones. The acronym in and of itself is not meant to imply a lack of knowledge (or stupidity) but rather the fact that an intelligent system can be construed as stupid because of their simplistic design.
One of the most overlooked best practices when managing JDE E1 is user security. When you set up a new user inside E1, you have to assign them a password. Pretty simple, right? Unfortunately, that's not all there is to security inside E1. As shipped, JDE E1 is essentially wide open for all users and companies must develop a plan to handle all aspects of E1 security. Once the plan is in place it requires regular maintenance and adjustment as users come and go or company needs change.
