Troubleshooting and Enhancing Functionality of Xano for User Data Management
The State Changers meeting focused on troubleshooting and improving functionality within a software tool called Xano. The participants were finding solutions to specific technical issues related to different functions including editing records and dealing with different data types and formats.
The key points discussed include:
1. The 'Post Comment ID': The error occurred due to incorrectly treating an integer as a text in a function stack. This was rectified by setting the value correctly as an integer.
2. 'get record' issue: There was a confusion in field names vs field values, especially while using the get function. It was usually based on the ID, which should normally be of a number type.
3. A problem in 'edit records': The issue had a similar nature to the 'Post comment ID' problem, not using the correct kind (string vs. integer) in relation.
Further, the team focused on incorporating boolean variables where adding an 'if not null' condition was suggested for situations involving a binary (True/False) property. The nuances of incorporating boolean variables were explained.
The team also discussed a function related to a user acting as an admin for the company. This function toggles depending on the state of the user (active/ inactive as admin). The suggestion was to create an independent function which becomes active when the admin is engaged with their duties. For this function, they created a new endpoint, user acting company. To handle different scenarios of the admin's state, conditionals were included in function stacks.
In summary, the meeting was highly technical, and it primarily focussed on refining code and functions for better efficiency within the Xano tool. This is useful for individuals working with Xano and looking to troubleshoot similar issues.
