V8 - Append to the existing attribute's value

Post by JuA » Mar 12, 2015 12:56 pm

Hi,

Il B&R v8, it's possible (and it's the default behaviour) to append the comments of the last backup of a VM in a vSphere Attribute, instead of replacing the attribute as it was made in v7.

Do the new lines append forever, or after a given number, the lines are "purged/rotated" ? This detail is not in the manual.

I tested, after 17 saves (on a job with 6 restore points), I have 17 lines.

Julien, seems that currently lines are "forever" appended to the entire attribute value. We should probably change this to appending once and then just updating the appended record with the new job run's details. Thanks!

Constant appending was never intended, and is being fixed in Patch #2. Coincidentally, I've actually discussed this very issue a few hours ago with the devs. It will only append the last successful job results to whatever is already stored in the attribute once. Next time, it will delete the previous result (but not anything else already in the attribute), and append the new job result. Thanks!

Thank you for these replies.

As I use a dedicated Custom Attribute, I will uncheck "append to existing attribute value" ..
