Does anyone have any tips or best practices to make it clearly visible when an admin is in Production vs. Development? Obviously next to user name we can see Production or Development, but other than that one word, they look identical. I’m thinking of something like a big red “DEV” logo at the top ribbon next to OneStream XF or something similar to that.
Dependent on the configuration… In Celvin’s image, the path of the XFAppServerConfig.xml file “Application Server Configuration” is located at C:\OneStreamShare\Confiig. The other common location is C:\OneStream or C:\OneStream\FileShare. In a multi-server environment, there will be a common “shared” location. The first server, I would check is the web server(s) in the environment.
We’re on the cloud and so asked OS support to make this update for us:
In excel it looks like this:
We also name all our dev apps DEV_ and then the 2 digit month, 2 digit day and 2 digit year we made the copy from prod. For example, if I copied prod today for a dev app, it would be named DEV_062421.
Hope that’s useful!
That’s our problem too… Dev and Prod in the same environment. Ours are named OneStreamProd and OneStreamDev. It helps, but it’s easy sometimes if you are working in both Dev and Prod to accidently do something in the wrong environment. That’s why I was hoping Dev could be bright red to mitigate that. Maybe we submit an enhancement request??
