VbzCart/tables/event vc legacy

  • Purpose: dependent table for integrating other event-logging tables into the EventPlex system
    • This particular table is based on event_log, but could be adapted for importing events from other systems.
  • Depends on: sql/event in Ferreteria


Here's what happens to the various event_log fields:

  • ID is renamed to ID_Event (I'm using the same IDs because I can get away with it, thus making it unnecessary to write PHP code for importing)
  • Timestamps: see event_done section below
    • WhenStarted -> event.WhenStart
    • WhenFinished -> event_done.WhenFinish
  • WhatSQL was never used, so dropped
  • Table/Row identifiers: when set, an event_in_table record is created.
    • ModType -> event_in_table.TableKey
    • ModIndex -> event_in_table.TableRow
  • EvWhere is unaltered
  • Params is unaltered
  • Descr -> event.Descrip
  • DescrFin -> event_done.Descrip
  • Code: "legacy." is prepended, and result used for event.TypeCode
  • WhoAdmin is unaltered
  • WhoSystem is unaltered
  • WhoNetwork is unaltered
  • isError is unaltered
  • isSevere is unaltered
  • isDebug is unaltered
  • Notes -> event_notes.Notes


Some early records have WhenFinished set but not WhenStarted, or DescrFin but not WhenFinished.

  • If WhenFinished is set but WhenStarted isn't, WhenFinished values are moved to WhenStarted.
  • When WhenStarted and WhenFinished are set, or DescrFin is set, an event_done record is created.
  • When DescrFin is set but WhenFinished isn't, then WhenStart is used for WhenFinished.
