preventing or capturing spool data when the DFU command is issued

DFU log reports are not being picked up in a timely manner. Users can delete spool files before Robot has a chance to pick them up. These are the logs that get created anytime anyone issues the Data File Utlity command (STRDFU). This command allows the user to change files, thus the desire to have the logs of what was changed. So… how do we fix? Who is supposed to be picking these up?

Hi,

Maybe you should consider journalling the files, that way you always have a record of who has done what to your data.

Personally I wouldn’t allow users access to DFU to change data files – I consider DFU to be a tool for programmers and developers – If the users need to be able to change data files, then there should be a program or application that allows them to make these changes (they the program can keep a history of who changed the data and how).

Regards,

Martin Gilbert.

    Just a minor added note: Access to "DFU" isn't equivalent to access to a "DFU program". The DFU facility can give broad access to data in essentially any file to which the user is authorized. But it can also be used to create "DFU programs" that are specific to individual files. Various customizations can be done such as to the display file to modify which fields may be altered. While access to DFU in general is an invitation to trouble, the capability of quickly giving basic maintenance to chosen files can be very useful. Care must always be taken when deciding who has authority. Tom
