    What if we want to implement renaming? A lot of our projects require us to rename assets, shots, and even sometimes the project name itself. Has anyone implemented a workflow with renaming capabilities or does one already exist in ftrack?

    What do you mean? Automatic renaming? like if you rename something in Ftrack, it should be renamed also on the filesystem?

    Note that you could also write your own cache interface to connect to a shared cache if you want to reduce DB hits. For example, we run a Redis cache per site and created a RedisCache implementation as a subclass of ftrack_api.cache.Cache.


    Thanks for the info! We will try to test this, too.

    we also use one session across threads and I am constantly running into the same behavior.
    As a workaround I am setting the auto_populate attribute to True at many places as this seems to be setting itself to False when the same session object is used from multiple threads...

    We tried multiple ways. It will not work.

    If you are using multi threads, use multiple session.

    I thought this was the intention, so we are using it as a feature. If we want to create the next available version, we set the version to 0 when creating the asset version.
    It would be nice to still retain this feature somehow. Maybe -1 would make more sense for this? Or a dedicated method or argument for getting the next available version number.

    I think not specifying the version number when you create the assetVersion it's the best way. In this way it's automatically creating the next version.

  5. Hi @Mattias Lagergren

    the offline documentation was awesome for the production and artists as they could find it easily.

    Unfortunately, our users don't have direct internet connection and they can not easily access it.

    Another think is that we are not migrating to the latest version all the time. Especially when we are close to a show deadline. In this way, if there are new features which production is interested in, but they are not in the Ftrack version used in production, then it could create confusion.

  6. Thanks @Martin Pengelly-Phillips for the info!

    So as I understand the cache is build per session. If there is a session per thread, then for each thread there is a cache file which can contain the same data as the other sessions. Am I correct?

    Having only one session, there is only one cache file with all the data and the queries are faster. Less queries to the database.

    Do you know if the sessions connected?

    I did a test and it seems that they are. I query in assetBuild in one session and I created a task using as parent the assetbuild from the other session and the task was created.

    @Martin Pengelly-Phillips: I am interested how are you using the session. Are you creating a new session for each query / commit?
