Hi,
I'm evaluating metasfresh among other ERP/CRM to use in our solution instead of writing all customer handling from scratch. The think is, we have our own Database with products, orders, payments and we would like to map/customize metasfresh to work in some way together with this backend. Can you please point me to documentation for custom fields, extra fields and how to modify forms. Also I am interested in how the database layer is implemented and if we can work with those abstractions to fit our own database (and db schema) behind metasfresh.
(worst case, but also somehow acceptable would be to use metasfresh's database "as is" and then do some syncing and transformation into our "main" database

Thank you so much for your help

Stephen

hey @Stephen77336291_twitter
your task is not simple. may I ask why you want to run 2x backends and what do you expect to gain from metasfresh ?
here are some pages around application dictionary customizations:
http://docs.metasfresh.org/pages/appdictionary/index_en
and also there is a handson example in forum:
https://forum.metasfresh.org/t/webui-fenster-konfigurieren-felder-ausblenden/941
Stephen
@Stephen77336291_twitter
Hey @metasnw ,
Thanks for helping!
We already have a Database with customers, orders, products. I would like to integrate that into Metasfresh
One Database would be best
Norbert
@metasnw
you can migrate those
we got importers for customers, products and a REST API to import also orders
Stephen
@Stephen77336291_twitter
Yes, but there is another old system that is depending on those and is expected to continue running. So we would rather "migrate" or transform the Metasfresh Datashema to our DB
Norbert
@metasnw
you can basically change all visual aspects of metasfresh via configuration using the java client
Stephen
@Stephen77336291_twitter
I see
Norbert
@metasnw

Yes, but there is another old system that is depending on those and is expected to continue running. So we would rather "migrate" or transform the Metasfresh Datashema to our DB

ok, got it. then you might want to use metasfresh as backend and have an ETL tool to provide the old schema for the other system

you either could have views on top of the metasfresh data model or copy and transfer the data to the old db
Stephen
@Stephen77336291_twitter
Ohh okay, yes that sound exactly like what we would want to do
So metasfresh is flexible to make something like this easy? We have a few Concepts that I don't know if they exist in Metasfresh like: Subscriptions, CustomerTags, CustomerActions ontop of Taglists
Norbert
@metasnw
metafsresh has subscriptions, tags
not sure what customeractions are. something like storing the communication with the customer ?
Stephen
@Stephen77336291_twitter
okay, that sound cool!!
Yes it is everything that can be executed on a user or a list of users, like Invoice sending, giving Freebees (werbegeschenk), credit entry (gutschrift), and letters (or emails)
we use tags to execute them in bulk
in our internal model, but we would maybe have to map that to some metasfresh compatible model
Norbert
@metasnw
yes, all processes in metasfresh support mass processing
do you see the steps in between documents. e.g. Invoice Disposition
you can run invoicing on thousands of customers and the users still can go on with their work

hello
i m not able to download client file from erp.taqims.com:8080
webui erp.taqims.com is working ok
Julian Bischof
@metas-jb
hi @girishvb
if you're using docker as installation method, you will need to port-bind (ports:) "8282" on container definition for "app" and then use erp.taqims.com:8282
More info here: http://docs.metasfresh.org/installation_collection/EN/How_do_I_use_Java_Client_using_Docker.html and this docker-compose.yml file as an example: https://github.com/metasfresh/metasfresh-docker/blob/master/extras/docker-compose_javaclient.yml
girishvb
@girishvb
Thanks Julian.
Client download problem ressolved.
but still db connection error is there
it says org.adempeire.exception.DBNoconnectionException: @NoDBConnection@: Connection could not be acquired from underlying database

@girishvb
Please also check if postgres-port (5432) of container "db" is also port-bound to the dockerhost (check example above - section "db").
And do not "check connection" when adding the application-server or db-server in your swing client connection setup.
Enter it all manually! When hitting the "check connection" button, the client will automatically request connection-details from the application-server. BUT due to the nature of docker and docker-hostnames the swing-client then just gets "db" since the application-server recognizes the database-container only as "db".

And please note:
a) hostnames entered in the config-menu of the swing client shall not have any dots (so you might want to add a CNAME or edit your local hosts file)
b) connection via swing client is VERY dependent on latency and if your server is not running inhouse or with latency < 1ms, I'd highly advise against using the swing client in production. That's what the webui is there for :)

Hello, I'm exploring the features provided by the metasfresh and didn't find a fully documentation for this part
I just found this https://docs.metasfresh.org/pages/webui/index_en and doesn't cover everything
Kay
@metas-Kay
Hallo @thelightsense,
„Gehe ins Menü“ meint das Hauptmenü, das kleine blaue Häuschen oben links in metasfresh (https://docs.metasfresh.org/webui_collection/DE/Menu). E-Mail-Vorlagen werden neuerdings unter dem Menüpunkt „Textbausteine“ angelegt. Die Doku wird noch entsprechend aktualisiert.
Informationen über die Bearbeitung von Belegtexten findest du in dieser Doku: https://docs.metasfresh.org/webui_collection/DE/Text_auf_Belege_drucken-allgemein.html
Viele Grüße!
Hi @mabujaber
Welcome and thank you for exploring metasfresh! The documentation of which “part” are you looking for?
Cheers!
mabujaber
@mabujaber
@metas-Kay Functional part, I can't see all the functional part has documentation a few has links

@thelightsense
@metas-Kay danke dir!

The Functional Modules list (https://docs.metasfresh.org/webui_collection/EN/FunctionalModules.html) is not an exhaustive one since we keep creating new features every time and we’re working to keep up with their documentation.
If you have questions regarding a particular feature, please remember to ask in our forum at https://forum.metasfresh.org where you can get help from members of our community as well.
Best regards
@thelightsense Gern geschehen!

I would like to know more about the accounting functionalities available, and how I can watch the new functionalities know about it?

@mabujaber
Also, The current docker-compose file doesn't work properly with mac
the error as below
ERROR: for metasfresh-docker_search_1 Cannot start service search: Mounts denied: The paths /etc/timezone and /etc/localtime are not shared from OS X and are not known to Docker. You can configure shared paths from Docker -> Preferences... -> File Sharing. See https://docs.docker.com/docker-for-mac/osxfs/#namespaces for more info. Starting metasfresh-docker_db_1 ... error
Kay
@metas-Kay
Hi @mabujaber
For more in-depth information about accounting and other topics, I suggest you register for our free webinar every Thursday at 3pm CEST where you can get all your questions answered.
.
You can also subscribe to our release notes newsletter to stay up to date about any new features and fixes.
.
As to the error, you can overcome that by putting comments in front of those paths for Mac within the docker-compose.yml file. See image attached.
