What's New in Q-SYS Designer 7.2.1? Features, Improvements, and Bug Fixes
I have a NOS core 110f I need to use for a very simple project. Using designer 9.4.3 at the moment. When I try to save and run I get an error saying I need to update the firmware to 7.2.1. Its currently on 6.2.1. Im not prompted to update it which is what it seems like QSYS training suggests should happen. I also can't seem to access the core manager at all either via tools>show core manager in designer or by going to the web page. On the web page I get a static splash screen that says Welcome to QSYS please use designer to configure this device.

Playbooks are individual sequences of steps designed to accomplish a specific purpose. Playbooks are akin to a functional programming language, with capabilities to handle internal processes and external integrations. In release 7.4.0, FortiSOAR introduces a 'Simplified Expression View' setting, which displays a tag-based simplified expression rendering in the playbook designer. For more information see the Simplified Expression View topic.
The 'Simplified Expression View' setting, which is the default view for rendering expressions in the playbook designer, i.e., the playbook designer renders tag-based simplified expressions instead of the complete Jinja expressions. However, if your administrator disables this setting, then complete Jinja expressions are displayed in the playbook designer. For more information on usage of Jinja expressions, see the Dynamic Values chapter.
To set the logging levels of a playbook, open the playbook in the playbook designer, and then click INFO or DEBUG (depending on the logging level set), which is present at the top of the Playbook Designer, as shown in the following image:
To add a block, open a playbook in the playbook designer, click the Create Block button, and then draw the box of the preferred size in the designer; that will create the block of that size and release the selection. Playbook steps placed by dragging and dropping the steps within the drawn box are added, by default, to the block. You can also drag and drop the block over the playbook steps that should be part of the block and then release the selection. When you release the selection, the Add Block dialog is displayed. In the Add Block dialog, enter the title of the block and, optionally, a description of the block, and click Add.
You can also add a note in the playbook designer to provide more information about the playbook or to explain the playbook steps in greater detail. To add a note, click the Add Note button. In the Add Note dialog, enter the title for the note in the Name field and add the note information in the Description field. If you do not want to display the notes that are added to the playbooks in the 'Executed Playbooks Log', select the Hide Note in Executed Playbook Log option and click Add. If you want to display the notes that are added to the playbooks in the 'Executed Playbook Logs', then clear the Hide Note in Executed Playbook Log option. The following image is an example of an 'Executed Playbook Logs' containing a note:
You can trigger playbooks directly from the playbook designer making it easier for playbook developers to test and debug playbooks while building them. Now, playbook developers do not require to go now to the module, select the record, and then choose playbook and then trigger the playbook and then come back again to the playbook designer to make the changes; all this can now be directly done from the playbook designer.
Triggering a playbook from the designer starts the execution of the playbook, which can cause changes to your data leading to unwanted changes or loss of data. Therefore, it is important to review the playbook before it is triggered.
To trigger a playbook from the playbook designer, click the Trigger Playbook with Sample Data button. You can choose whether you want to use the Last Run Data as the sample data to trigger the playbook or you want to use Record Input/Custom.
To trigger a playbook, you provide input based on the type of trigger you have defined for the playbook. For example, the Select Record drop-down list will not be present in case of a "Manual Trigger" step that has the Does not require a record input to run option selected since in this case the playbook does not require the data of a record to trigger a playbook. Also, in the case of a "Manual Trigger" step that has the Run separately for each selected records option selected, and in which you have selected multiple records and triggered a playbook from the designer, you will observe that only a single playbook will be triggered on a single record to simulate the output. Similarly, in case of a Referenced trigger, you can provide parameter values and trigger the playbook using those parameters.
To set a priority for playbook prioritization, open that playbook in the playbook designer. Click Tools > Execution Priority. In the Execution Priority dialog, you can set the playbook execution prioritization to High, Medium, or Low:
The playbook designer implements Live Users, which means that the playbook designer displays users who are also currently working on the same playbook. Therefore, when you open a playbook and if there are other users who are working on the same playbook apart from you, then the playbook designer will display the users working on the playbook, as well as the number of sessions that are active for each user. Live Users also notifies users that are working on the same playbook, if any other user or session has saved modifications to the playbook, so that the user can refresh the playbook before working on the same, thereby ensuring that users work on the latest version of the playbook. Users can also save versions of their current modified state of the playbook, thereby providing users with the ability to merge their changes.
You can then import the playbook and then open that playbook in the playbook designer, you can see the previously saved versions of the playbook by clicking Save Version > View Saved Versions. This opens the Versions dialog as shown in the following image:
You can load a snapshot of a previously saved version of playbook in the Versions dialog by selecting the snapshot that you want to load in the playbook designer and clicking Load. This will display a message such as "You are working.....playbook snapshot...." as shown in the following image:
To recover an unsaved draft of the playbook, reopen that playbook in the playbook designer you will be prompted to confirm whether you want to recover the draft of the playbook as shown in the following image:
Once you click Confirm on the Confirm dialog, the autosaved version of the playbook is loaded in the playbook designer, and you can then choose to save this playbook using Save Playbook and make it the current working copy.
