    Thanks for your reply and adding the noSQL licence, @CraigWeb!

    Regarding the other error: I wanted to migrate existing H2 data into noSQL and was mislead by the documentation:

    The NoSQL migration can take several hours to complete but it will happen in the background.

    My bad -- I thought it was a one-click solution given, that Mango knows which DB it is using and what the credentials are. Will report back when I had access to the client's server again. Thanks again for your help!

    Hi everyone,

    a customer of ours upgraded their evaluation to a commercial lite license and registering the GUID went smoothly. Unfortunately, the noSQL module was not installed during this process and hence is still shown as "not registered". There is also an error message when trying to migrate the existing data to the noSQL DB. I was told that "the NoSQL module only needs the core to be licenced to work." and that I shall ask in the forum about the latter issue. Has anyone an idea how to mitigate the communications link failure for a DB that is running on the same machine?

    Thank you very much in advance for your help!

    Best wishes,

    Hi guys,

    I ran into some troubles with the documentation / installation and wanted to let you know about it. The one I am referring to is hosted at: and I am running a relatively clean and updated Opensuse 15.2

    1. The install script fails when trying to install Mango 4.0 (or any other version than the default 3.6.6 for that matter):

    Archive: /tmp/tmp.5ikghN5F2T
    End-of-central-directory signature not found. Either this file is not
    a zipfile, or it constitutes one disk of a multi-part archive. In the
    latter case the central directory and zipfile comment will be found on
    the last disk(s) of this archive.
    unzip: cannot find zipfile directory in one of /tmp/tmp.5ikghN5F2T or
    /tmp/, and cannot find /tmp/tmp.5ikghN5F2T.ZIP, period.

    1. There is an error when trying to run "chown -R mango:mango /opt/mango" because there is no mango group yet.

    2. The copy command fails because the unzipped mango archive does not have the overrides folder yet.

    cp /opt/mango/classes/ /opt/mango/overrides/properties/

    1. manually starting Mango complains that the file does not exist...

    linux-wh13:/home/fl/SW # sudo -u mango /opt/mango/bin/ > /dev/null &
    [1] 13594
    linux-wh13:/home/fl/SW # sudo: /opt/mango/bin/ command not found

    [1]+ Exit 1 sudo -u mango /opt/mango/bin/ > /dev/null

    ... and hence does start.

    ls /opt/mango/bin/ mango.service

    1. While installing the service file works, it does -- unsurprisingly -- not start Mango neither.

    mango.service - Mango Automation
    Loaded: loaded (/etc/systemd/system/mango.service; enabled; vendor preset: disabled)
    Active: activating (auto-restart) (Result: exit-code) since Fri 2020-10-09 10:32:53 CEST; 2s ago
    Process: 13198 ExecStart=/opt/mango/bin/ (code=exited, status=203/EXEC)

    Oct 09 10:32:53 linux-wh13 systemd[1]: Failed to start Mango Automation.
    Oct 09 10:32:53 linux-wh13 systemd[1]: mango.service: Unit entered failed state.
    Oct 09 10:32:53 linux-wh13 systemd[1]: mango.service: Failed with result 'exit-code'.

    FWIW, v3.7.7 runs beautifully on this machine.

    Thanks in advance for any comments and help,

    Congratulations and best wishes on this endeavour! The new layout for the documentation is easy on the eyes and very systematic.

    @MattFox kindly developed a user module which extends the code of <ma-point-value> with two fields for "value-anchor" and "anchor-target". With this the popup and the link work properly. While there is a chance that this is feature creep, the modification is much better than the current behaviour which IMHO is a bug.

    Anyway: All good now. Many thanks for your comments and help!

    Hi Craig,

    sorry for the late reply. I tried the options you cited and learned something new. Nice. But as you already guessed, the original problem persists.

    True dat. We sleep when we're dead.

    But when we are dad, we sleep as soon as the offspring lets us. At least I do.

    That is all more than alright; please enjoy your weekend as much as you can in these strange times! The main use is that the user can click on the data point and be led to a different page. Popup with data point details is already bonus functionality. Thinking about it this way, it would even be an option to disable the bubbles for "statistics", "chart", "value table", and "point events". My users would likely not miss them ... no overlays, no problem.

    Have a nice weekend!

    Having tried your suggestion -- thanks! -- I would like to be more specific: The datapoint popups which create an overlay are the troubling ones. "Data point details" opens the proper link (the data point details), but the other ones show the overlay and additionally open a new tab with the link.

    Even after restructuring thrice the problem description sounds odd. Apologies for that. Maybe the code helps...

    <a href="http://localhost:8080/ui/watch-list/" target="pointdata">
    <ma-point-value style="position: absolute; left: 0px; top: 350px; width: 90px; height: 40px;" enable-popup="right" quick-info="false" point-xid="internal_mango_num_data_points"></ma-point-value>

    The solution you suggested still works great, @MattFox! There is just one flaw: We added the "enable popup" option but if one clicks on said popup it opens the link as well as the data point page. The link seems to gets surround the the popop as well. We tried all directions for the popups but only got mixed results. In, the majority of cases the link opens as well and not only the data point page. Would you mind sharing your thoughts on this?
