Title

Manage External Data Sources (script the changing of ip addresses)

Post

Just testing Go with the concept of offline syncing with a host file (Pro) and in the scenario where a solution was developed to market how can the External Data Source references be updated to match the users ip addresses without manually making them use Manage External Data Sources? Is it possible?

Documentation states no variables are possible in Data Source Path References. Documentation also states it is best to not use asterisks for the ip address of the host (is that the solution but not a good one?).

My concern is that any distributed solution should be easy for end users to get going with and having to manually go into Manage Ext\ernal Data Sources and configure there own ip address setting is not at all user friendly.

 

Am I missing something simple here or is that just the way is and no way around it?
