Architect Config changes

We updated the way how Output window works in Architect. Before a selected number of events were logged there. From this version it is possible to configure which events will be visible and the number of events was greatly increased.

In fact anything that is being logged using the internal log4net library can be also displayed in the Output window.

The basic set of events can be configured by adding the following part to your AsapArchitect.exe.config:

        <!-- ConsoleAppender will send the logs to the Output pad -->
        <appender name="ConsoleAppender" type="log4net.Appender.ConsoleAppender">
            <layout type="log4net.Layout.PatternLayout">
                <conversionPattern value="%-5level %logger - %message%newline" />
        <appender name="WorkflowConsoleAppender" type="log4net.Appender.ConsoleAppender">
            <layout type="log4net.Layout.PatternLayout">
                <conversionPattern value="%message%newline" />
        <appender name="RuleConsoleAppender" type="log4net.Appender.ConsoleAppender">
            <layout type="log4net.Layout.PatternLayout">
                <conversionPattern value="Rule: %message%newline" />
            <level value="INFO" />
            <appender-ref ref="ConsoleAppender" />
        <logger name="CZ.Advantages.Asap.Workbench.Services" additivity="false">
            <level value="DEBUG" />
            <appender-ref ref="WorkflowConsoleAppender" />
        <logger name="CZ.Advantages.Asap.Workflow" additivity="false">
            <level value="DEBUG" />
            <appender-ref ref="WorkflowConsoleAppender" />
        <logger name="CZ.Advantages.Asap.Rule" additivity="false">
            <level value="DEBUG" />
            <appender-ref ref="RuleConsoleAppender" />

If you do not have log4net configured at all you need more entries in the config file. See Config File for a sample.


Just download the release ZIP file and replace all server files with the new version. You do not have to delete any files, just replace the existing ones.

Application Server Web.config changes

While preparing for future functionality we had to change naming of some internal classes that have influence on the web.config. We took this opportunity and rebranded them, too.

In order to get ORIGAM backend working you need to do the following changes in the web.config file:

  1. Replace all cz.advantages.asap.services with Origam.Server

  2. Replace pages.AsapPagesModule with Pages.PagesModule

  3. Replace doc.DocHandler with Doc.DocHandler

  4. Replace search.SearchResultHandler with Search.SearchResultHandler (if you find such an entry)

  5. Replace cz.advantages.asap.services.AttachmentSQLDbHandler with Origam.Server.AttachmentSQLDbHandler (if you find such an entry)

Model Changes

We also made some important changes in the AsapRoot package.

  1. First update Architect to the newest version.
  2. Download the actual root packages from Downloads
  3. Run Architect
  4. Confirm the version change
  5. Open AsapRoot package
  6. Select File > Import Single Package and select the newly downloaded AsapRoot package.
  7. Save the model.
  8. Reload the Root package (from the Packages tab) and select File > Run Update Scripts
