IBM TRIRIGA Support works on addressing problems through a problem ticketing system where each issue is logged as an IBM Service Request (SR) or Problem Management Report (PMR). IBM TRIRIGA Support manages problems reported via this process.
This page has a Support Resources Home section that provides numerous links to some great resources, including a link to our IBM Service Request system where you can open a Service Request (SR). For convenience, the link for creating a Service Request (SR) is here: http
Alternatively, on the IBM TRIRIGA Information and Support Resources page there are also IBM Support phone numbers that can be used to call for support.
Once an SR/PMR is opened, it can be tracked for updates via the SR tool. You may also request an update at any time and this will notify the Support team to follow up with you as soon as possible.
For the most efficient IBM TRIRIGA support experience, a few guidelines should be followed:
Also, it is important to have one problem per SR/PMR because if the problem reported is determined to be a defect, we will create an APAR for it and an APAR also can only cover one distinct problem and we can only create on APAR per SR/PMR. More information about SRs, PMRs, and APARs can be found here: http
Please keep in mind that if all issues are logged as severity 1 issues, this is a misrepresentation, and IBM will be unable to provide adequate timely resolution for truly critical issues for all customers.
Keep in mind that any inside knowledge about your particular problem or environment is good to provide as well because Support deals with a wide variety of issues and test cases and might not be aware of how a particular customer has customized their envi
Finally, try to be prompt and clear in your responses as we communicate during the resolution process. Especially with high priority issues. The quicker you can reply that you have received any updates and let us know your response, the better. Again, due to the large volume of issues coming in, by quickly responding it can ensure that your issue remains at the forefront of the minds of those involved.
For additional guidance on the IBM TRIRIGA Support process, please see the following link for our IBM Support Handbook: http

I would like an example of running an ETL Job Item as simply Running the process fails.
Users see the Activated record and assume they can click Run Process and will get results. There is actual need to enter a set of restraining data to get results.
Every ETL Job Item is different. You need to fill in information to the record in order to get the results necessary for the transformation or processing.
A complete list of field requirements and processing possibilities can be found in the manual link below.
This blog entry is for a sample run of a Survey Fact ETL Job Item.

In this day in age, security is a very hot topic and as soon as one vulnerability pops up, it is addressed and mitigated, another one is found. It is a vicious circle of identifying and addressing that does not seem to let up. In our fixpack release notes, information regarding mitigation of vulnerabilities that were addressed without an APAR is listed. And sometimes, a vulnerability could be addressed as an APAR.
The reason I am mentioning security vulnerabilities is that sometimes, when they are resolved, there is an effect that impacts existing functionality and it may not always be clear. Sometimes, the result of fixing these vulnerabilities can “change” functionality.
As an example, in the 3.5.2 release, there is mention of an APAR related to external URL navigation items will now open in a new window to avoid cross origin scripting vulnerabilities. Prior to the 3.5.2 release, if you used an external URL in the navigation, it just opened in the same window. We have seen some issues where clients wanted the original design, but that is no longer possible since the change was made as a result of fixing a security vulnerability. The current behavior is correct and cannot revert to the old design. So in this case, there was an APAR referenced. But in others, there may not be. You can look at the 18.104.22.168 release notes (found here http
As the product develops and security vulnerabilities are found and addressed, it could mean a change in how something works. Reading the release notes can be a source of information but it may not always be clear why something changed. We all know change is hard, especially when we are so used to it working a certain way. I don’t know about you, but if the change was made to address a security vulnerability, I can live with that and accept the change.
Sometimes a user that supposedly has licenses for a form or portal is not being able to see it, so how do I determine if some license is missing or if the licenses I have are enough? This question often comes up when users start reporting they can not access portions of the application and call in complaining about it.
The best way to see it is to log as an Admin user, for instance "system" and follow these instructions:
In the below example you see that a user accessing via Cloud needs license "IBM Facilities and Real Estate Management on Cloud Enterprise" to access the Contact Center (form triContactCenter).
If you have questions on specific licenses, contact your sales representative from IBM or Business Partner. They are able to see what you are entitled of.

There are many reasons and installation scenarios that can cause Report, specially BIRT ones to fail to export due time out.
Excel exports are often the ones you can observe because all the file formatting happening during export.
Let's focus on Liberty installations, but this recommendation can be used to other web server with some tweaks.
Most of the times this is related to time-out settings, specially for HTTPS (SSL/TLS) connections. A good troubleshooting is performing the same in a HTTP connection, does the report exports? If so, take note of the time you need to export it and plan to extend time-out in HTTPS connections to at least the double of the time.
This is documented in the HTTP Endpoint entry in Liberty Knowledge Center link below:
Look for the sslOptions and also double check the ones for http, all time-outs be equally increased.

If you are an administrator for TRIRIGA, chances are you have access to Security Manager, which is responsible for granting access to the TRIRIGA applications through the security groups. Prior to 3.5.2, the only way to view security access was to go to the Access tab and then select the Access Configuration sub-tab. That is where you would grant (or remove) access. However, it is not very user friendly in terms of finding something and looking what the overall picture of the access of the selected security group. So in 3.5.2, a new sub-tab was access to the Access tab called Access Summary.
The Access Summary tab will show you in a column format, the permissions of the module/business object, form, tab and section. You are able to filter by each of those fields. But only the module/business object and form filters will have a drop down list. The rest of the filters are free form text so be careful when entering data into them.
It is worth noting that when you go to the Access Summary, it will take a little bit for the data to come up. This is because of the query used to extract all that data. Once you have the data up, you can start using the filters to look at the access. what modules/business objects it has. Or if there is a specific form you want to look at. The permissions field will show the specific permission, if it's Read, No Access or the name of the action, like Asse
This tab should now make it much easier to identify what a security group has access to. If you find yourself limited with what you want to do within the tab, there is an Export button, that will export the data into a tab delimited .txt file. When you click on the Export button, you will get a message letting you know that it will run in the background and you will receive a notification when it is complete. You will want to monitor your Notification notices. It should also be noted that the file is exported to the application server, not your local server. The path of where the file can be found will be in your notification. If you don't have access to the servers, you will need to reach out to your system administrators to get the file for you. Here is what the file will look like when it is imported into Excel.
So there you have it - an easier way to view the access of a security group.
