FR: Read/list BSV descriptions

Post by hpl123 »

Hi support,
I use the description field of BSVs to write a changelog so I document every change I do and this is great BUT it isn´t easy to get an overview over previous changes. I have to open up and import an BSV just to see what the description is which isn´t ideal (I delete older versions from the config tool and only keep the last 3 versions).

A useful tool or solution would be a tool of some sort (or the config tool itself is probably better) where we can point to a folder that has multiple BSV files and the tool/solution would then list the version number of the BSV together with the description so we see the description version by version.

Is that info in the database in a way that could be read by Aware query and shown in a query?

I don't think that is stored at the moment but could be a solution and maybe an even better one. Have Aware save ALL versions number and description per BS and we could then inside the config tool see that in a list and view and delete rows/versions, export version history etc..

Another solution would be building proper changelog management into the config tool?

if you need this, just write it yourself.
export BSVs as xml,
then parse/process it and display what you need.
kinda easy if you HAVE to have it.

Yeah, worst case scenario this would work.
