coreBOS Console for Developers

Albert and Lorida have implemented and contributed a spectacular enhancement that permits us to execute all sorts of actions and commands to a coreBOS install. From the command line we are now capable of modifying our coreBOS install with new actions, events, checks and easily execute those typical and repetitive commands we need from time to time. We will formally present, document and show the functionality of this new tool in future blog posts but you can already start enjoying it! Here are some of the commands that are supported:

  • create command to create a new corebos action
  • entitymethod: create a command that creates a new workflow
  • eventhandler: create a command that creates a new Event handler function
  • link: create a command that creates a new Link
  • logs: disable, command to disable corebos logs
  • logs: enable, command to enable corebos logs
  • privileges: grant, grant privileges to some directories that need rw permissions
  • relatedlist: creates a new related list between modules
  • smarty: clear command that clears smarty cache
  • updater: create a command to create cbUpdater files automatically
  • updater: log command - watch cbUpdater logs
  • vtlibfield: create a command that creates a new field for a specific module
