I would like to push this view out as a standard view to all users, but I'm finding that when I try to add my new view to the available CI Relation system views in the admin console (presentation->views->CI Relation) that OVSD disallows creation of a new view (error message:You are not allowed to insert this view info).
I'm running SP 20.
I want do one of two things: Find a way to force OVSD to let me create the system view I want in the admin console - OR - Find a way to automate the import of the custom views I have developed in my client. (can import be done from the command line?)
In SP20, you have the ability to export views from client to client, which basically just saves the views.dat file to an X location. Mass distribution of the file is an entirely different story. You may want to try a third-party tool like MS SMS.
I know how to export and import views, I want to get away from having to do this manually, and seeing as I can't get at the CI Relation system views, it looks like that might be the only option.
I've looked into SMS (well SCCM, but that's much of a muchness). I believe that SCCM looks at the delta of what happens when you make a change. I don't know if it will be smart enough to inspect a views.dat file and pick out the newly added view data for the view that I want without damaging the views.dat file and without replacing existing custom views for the customer.
