Move modules – Remove IPP – OutSystems

I needed to move some modules from one infrastructure to another so first I needed to remove IPP  (Intellectual Property Protection).

1 – In Service Studio, open your module and goto Module -> Export -> Save As…

Export
Export OML

2 – Navigate to Intellectual Property Protection (IPP) Rights Validation

Here you need to enter your email, the destination activation code for your target infrastructure, and upload your OML

IPP Validation

3 – You will receive an email with the OML file without IPP protection. Download the file.

4 – In Service Studio goto Module -> Open File…

Open module

5 – Publish your module

No data type ‘TYPE’ could be found – OutSystems Combo Box

I was trying to set up a Combo Box bounded to a static entity and I got this error when I published the website:

Internal Error 
No data type 'Status' could be found.

But TrueChange didn’t show me any errors or warnings. I got this error only when I tried to publish the application.

The problem was that the variable that I defined to hold the value entered by the user was of the Static Entity type instead of the Static Entity Identifier type.

That variable “Status” was defined like this:

And must be defined like this:

It must be a Status Identifier instead of the Status (static entity).
