Activate logging migration script for changes


This guide shows you how to activate migration script logging.

Important: you need to have an id server configured for this to be working! If no ID server is configured in System Config then you will not see the checkbox.


  1. login to the java backend with Role “System Administrator”
  2. go to settings
  3. make sure “Log migration script” is ticked
  4. make sure “Cache Windows” is NOT ticked
  5. open window “System Config”
  6. search for the name DICTIONARY_ID_COMMENTS
  7. put in the field “value” the label you want to log together with your changes later in the migration script. e.g. “Github Issue 123”
  8. Change something like for example the name of a window
  9. go back to the settings
  10. hover over the “logged migration scripts” checkbox to see the path where the scripts are stored. should be something like <your metasfresh client folder>/migration_scripts
  11. go to the path and open the script folder
  12. you see your change in the form of a sql statement together with your custom label e.g. “Github issue 123”
-- 2018-01-19T16:51:23.062
-- Github Issue 123
