Hi All, If you developing something on Acumatica xRP platform you know that changing of the UI fields visibility should be done through PXUIFieldAttribute on the RowSelected event. This works perfect on small screens with limited number of controls. But most of ERP screens are not really small. So most probably you already saw such types of code on the RowSelected in SOOrderEntry graph and many others. Not nice and really hard to support. Luckily now we have a different way to do it: PXUIEnabled – based on provided BQL conditions can automatically change UIFieldAttribute Enabled property. PXUIRequired – based on provided BQL condition can automatically change PXDefaultAttribute PersistingCheck property.… Read more

During upgrade procedure Acumatica overrides all standard files to ensure that system will work correctly with all latest platform changes correctly. This is correct, as any automatic merge of configurations can cause to compilation errors. This is especially harmful if you site is in public cloud and you have no access to the instance. So that means if you do custom configuration (like redirection rules, filters or custom controls) your changes most probably will… Read more
Hi All, As you may know Acumatica does not limit the number of users that can connect to the system but it limits the number of cores that may be used by the system and number of tenants (companies) that can be created and used in the database.

This is OK in general, but if you building some complex and high loaded integration as the result you may get something like this: Not very nice as it creates additional traffic network traffic and unnecessary load to server.

Here I want to share with you an example where I create a new class inherited… Read more
