    Hi everyone .... I am in the process of wrapping up a big project.  We have built a customized UI form and now need to deploy it.

    Just wondering what would be the best way to do it?



    1.  Create a portal page and embedded the customized form within it (as a formlet) .... then deploy the portal page

    2.  Simply create a bookmark to the customized UI form ???

    3.  Any other options





    Not sure what is the best way, or pros or cons of each ...... Any help is appreciated ...





    Chris

    If it's just a customized version of an existing Lawson form, and everyone should access it rather than the standard Lawson form, just publish it as the default override. Otherwise, if it's a truly custom form/token, create a bookmark. I would skip the portal page unless you have a requirement (i.e composite form), since that's just another thing to maintain.

    Great .... thanks so much ..... We are not over riding the default form .... it is truly a customized form which will stand on it's own ....
    So are you still thinking just a bookmark? Also, any steps in migrating it from one env to another?

    Step 1:
    Copy from here (on test server):
    $LAWDIR/persistdata/lawson/portal/content/forms/.xml

    to same directory (on production server):
    $LAWDIR/persistdata/lawson/portal/content/forms/

    Step 2:
    Open Design Studio on production server
    Tools | Rebuild Forms Index
    (this will find .xml file copied in previous step)

    Step 3:
    (if product line from test server <> product line on prod server)
    Open Design Studio on production server
    Tools | Set Forms Data Area
    "Current Data Area" drop down will show all product lines found in the .xml files
    Select the product line from the test server, and click 'Find' button.
    Highlight the desired form/ .xml file.
    Select desired product line from 'New Data Area' drop down, and click OK.

    Step 4:
    on production server
    /servlet/IOSCacheRefresh
