Goals and Symptoms
One can go into Vista and set the flag colours (High, Low and Stale) for a numeric
object as shown in the above diagram. However the changes made by a user, say Supervisor are not carried forward when any other user logs on to the same diagram. This can be more confusing when you create a new user, say UserViewOnly with View Only access level. Now we cannot make any changes to the Vista diagram for this user (in View Only access level), and so the flag colours will be different from the ones in the diagram as designed by the Supervisor.
This can be advantageous as well as disadvantageous.
Facts and Changes
Causes and Fixes
When we create a new user from Management Console, and when the new User logs into Vista for the first time, it generates an XML config file <username>.wsu which is used by the application. A copy of it is placed in text format in the folder:
This file contains the attributes for the flag colours: <LowFlagColor>, <HighFlagColor> and <StaleFlagColor>. When a new username.wsu file is created, the attributes take the default values / settings, which are
#0000ff Implies Blue
#ff0000 Implies Red
#ffff00 Implies Yellow
The workaround here is to replace the above default attributes from the username.wsu file with those of the Supervisor.wsu file.
