How to Check for Patch conflicts

By | July 30, 2013

Ever wondered why your development is not getting the reflecting correctly even though everything went with the Patch installation. Well, it may happen if the patched elements are in conflict with the modified elements (in this case, the elements, protected by an activity code, are not patched, and this can cause problems).

You can use a simple tool in Sage X3:

Development -> Utilities -> Patches -> Patch Test.


This function detects potential conflicts linked to patch file. It carries out the following tasks:

  1. It reads all the patches found in a directory
  2. For each patched object, it looks to see if there is a potential conflict due to a custom/specific activity code (except if the custom/specific activity code has been placed at the head of the patch such as prior to being deleted)
  3. It generates a log file detailing the possible conflicts.

With this log, you can save lot of confusion. Hope this helps.
