ADMINISTRATION FOR MOBILE PLATFORMS

12.1.         STARTING AND WORKING WITH  AN APPLICATION LIST FOR IOS

12.1.1. Starting a Mobile Application

To start a mobile application, find the required application in the list and click on the relevant icon. In most cases this will open the main window of the mobile application. However, if the software is linked to other applications a list of these applications will be opened. In that case, click the required application in the list.

12.1.2. Working with a List of Applications

You will have to go to the list of applications to perform the majority of the actions below. This can be done from the launched application by selecting the All Applications item in the main menu. The list of applications can be also accessed during the mobile application launch, if more than one application is registered.

12.1.2.1. Creating an Application

To create a mobile platform application:

„ Select the command for adding an application.

„ Specify the application name and press the Done button.

„ After the window is closed, the application will be created.

12.1.2.2. Starting an Application

In most cases starting a mobile application will open the main window of the application. However, if the software is linked to multiple applications, a list of these applications will be opened. In that case, click the required application in the list.

12.1.2.3. Changing Application Properties

Application properties can be edited in the special window for this purpose. To open the application properties window, press the > button in the right area of the row with the required application name.

This opens the window where you can edit the application name and start (the Open button) or delete (the Delete button) that application.

CAUTION

Once the application has been deleted, the infobase data cannot be restored.

12.1.2.4. Deleting an Application

To delete an application, press the Edit button, then click the icon in the left area of the row containing the name of the application to be deleted. Next, press the Delete button to the right of the same row.

CAUTION

Once the application has been deleted, the infobase data cannot be restored.

12.1.2.5. Updating an Application

The mobile application can be updated through the application store. After the mobile application has been successfully updated, previously created applications must also be updated. To do this, just launch the application.

If, the system determines that the database needs to be restructured during the update, you will be asked to confirm whether or not that task must be performed. If you cancel the task, the update will be suspended until the next application startup.

We also recommend that you cancel the update in order to create a backup copy of the database.

12.2.2.3. Changing Application Properties

Application properties can be edited in the special window for this purpose. To open the application property window, use long press on the required application. In the context menu that opens, select the Edit command.

This opens the window where you can edit the application name, and start (the Open button) or delete (the Delete button) that application.

CAUTION

After the application has been deleted, the infobase data cannot be restored. 12.2.2.4. Deleting an Application

1.     Long press the application name.

2.     In the pop-up menu, tap Remove.

3.     Tap Yes.

CAUTION

If the system determines that the database needs to be restructured during the update, you will be asked to confirm whether or not that task must be performed. In you cancel the task, the update will be suspended until the next application startup.

We also recommend that you cancel the update in order to create a backup copy of the database.

12.3. PREPARING THE INFRASTRUCTURE FOR EXCHANGE

If the mobile application is part of the distributed information system, then interaction within that infrastructure is usually performed using web services. A specific system can set its own requirements for the way the interaction is organized (this is defined at the system development stage). In any case, we recommend that you read the system documentation in order to understand which mechanisms are used to organize interaction.

This means it is the administrator’s responsibility to organize communication channels and create a software and hardware environment to meet the requirements set by the applied system.

12.4. BACKING UP

The data backup method depends on the mobile application being used.

If the mobile application is not connected to a remote system, then the mobile device’s built-in OS tools can be used to back up data. If this is the case, take into account the following special aspects of the iOS-based system: the infobase is excluded from the backup process as soon as it is created from a template. After the data is recorded in the infobase by using object form extensions and registers, the infobase becomes involved in the backup process.

If the application performs data synchronization with a remote system, we recommend that you execute such a synchronization. Use of the built-in tools for the backup process is required after the synchronization if the mobile application contains data that cannot be synchronized with the remote system. If there is no such data, and if any problems arise, you can reinstall the application and perform data intialization from the remote system.
