SSA 2108.2 Map Name Alias (Projects UI)

  • 1.  SSA 2108.2 Map Name Alias (Projects UI)

    Posted 03-21-2019 18:43
    Hi Guys,

    Have just upgraded to latest SSA 18.2.  Something I've noticed is that the Alias map names I had in SSA 12.2 have disappeared and I can't see a way of changing this in the Projects UI back to friendly name.  Has this functionality been removed since the previous version?

    Eg.   Live_Address Map (Spatial Manager)  --->>>>   Address Map  (SSA Map screen)

    Thanks in advanced

    Tim

    Did you apply the S01 patch, Tim?  That should do the trick.

    Hi @James Nolet, we applied that patch.  SSA 18.2 S01.

    Is there a special way of doing it that I may be missing??   Can you please give me a screenshot??

    Cheers

    Hi Tim,

    The friendly names I had applied in 12.2 came through after the upgrade, as shown:

    SSA Map Legend
    Within Project Settings, you can only specify a friendly name for the map - i.e. MB_MapBase is given a friendly name of "MapBase" in the below image:
    SSA Project Settings
    Friendly names for individual layers is done within Spatial Manager:
    SM Friendly Name
    Or in the MapInfo workspace prior to upload:
    MI Legend

    Thanks @James Nolet​,

    I don't see this bit:-   (Where I can edit - "MapBase"  text box in your example)

    Maybe we don't have all of the patches applied??

    I believe this was one of the issues with the 2018.2 release, fixed in the latest patch.  To check your version you can log into SSA Admin and check the status bar at the bottom of the screen:
