Enterprise Data Architects wanted to demonstrate a concept for dynamically displaying ERStudio models that could be viewed by everyone in the enterprise. Their proof of concept included Elasticsearch and Kibana connecting to Microsoft SQL server resources through ODBC and displaying content with an Apache web server and PHP. These are the setup notes for their platform build on a CentOS 7 server.
A collection of examples demonstrating how to use a variety of Lucidworks Fusion Query Pipeline stages.
Lucidworks Fusion signals data can reveal a lot about how people use a web application. Strategies for storing and analyzing signals data are therefore key to platform maintenance. Here are a few methods and insights along those lines.
In a Fusion high-availability cluster on a Linux platform, ensure the live files on each server are copied to static local system files on each server and then backup these static files to an archival storage system like a Virtual Tape Device.
As of Tableau Server v2018.2.3, most asset permissions are found in next_gen_permissions. But there are exceptions. This collection of PostgreSQL queries contributed to the development of a web application that displayed what users had at least view permissions to Tableau data assets.

A collection of notes on scheduling on Linux with cron. On Linux servers, cron can be used to schedule jobs that run commands and shell scripts at fixed times, dates or intervals. It’s great for repetitive tasks like backups, downloads and deleting log files.

Here’s one way to embed a WordPress blog into an existing website already managed by a version control system and a continuous deployment service workflow to a cloud server.
Anesthesia subject matter experts needed a good way to show SharePoint 2010 documents in a web part that re-sized with the page, looked good, could show different document groups with different colors and could easily grow or shrink with zero maintenance.
Starting up Lucidworks Fusion 2.x automatically on a single CentOS 6.6 server is tricky, because the Fusion 2.1 Users Guide assumes you are using Ubuntu Linux and Upstart scripts. On CentOS or Red Hat Linux, you’ll have to roll your own.
Smartlogic Search Application Framework (SAF) search dialog box suggestions context did not change after the underlying Smartlogic Semaphore 4.x ontology names changed from “Locations” to “Organizations.”
When working with Lucidworks Fusion 2.1 search, one of the first steps is to index content from a data source. You’ll find it can index just about anything, but when indexing a MS SQL table it might fail silently and not return all documents.
When the business needs to view Tableau dashboards or visualizations in SharePoint 2010, the most complete solution is to install the Tableau Server Service Application into the SharePoint farm. But what if it is not installed or supported on the farm?
People like to avoid SharePoint 2010’s Rich Text and Enhanced Rich Text editors until they find out they can paste in their Word document.

Why can’t a SharePoint list/library web part open links in a new window by default?
SharePoint list or library users need a simple way to enter data in one column that depends on what was entered in another, but out-of-the-box SharePoint 2007 or 2010 does not support direct cascading functionality.
So, you need to get data from a SharePoint 2010 list and generate a hierarchical XML file that can be used as a data source for a Flash movie on a site. Your enterprise SharePoint Admins want their platform to stay as out of the box as possible, and they have good reasons to minimize server-side customizations and the use of SharePoint Designer.
Adding Report Builder web parts to SharePoint 2010 made the page colorful and intelligent, but the UI lacked a bit.
SharePoint 2010 Edit and Display forms can be modified with InfoPath. This opportunity comes with a few new bugs, but the UI and functionality can be compelling.
Using an HTTP-EQUIV meta tag is a simple way to automate this thank-you and form refresh process. The InfoPath form’s meta tag just needs to contain an &Source reference back to the original page.
If you are working in SharePoint 2010 and discover that users in the Visitors group or All Authenticated Users are unable to open pages that contain a Report Services web part with an Access Denied error.
Say you have a Reporting Services web part, and you want to change an indicator on the report from red to green with a single click. To do this, without relying on SharePoint Server Admins, build a Visual Studio 2010 C# Express Console Application following the Client Object Model.
