Change the Language in Factoryinsight

This page describes how to change the language in Factoryinsight, in order to display the returned text in a different language.

You can change the language in Factoryinsight if you want to localize the returned text, like stop codes, to a different language.

Before you begin

You need to have a UMH cluster. If you do not already have a cluster, you can create one by following the Getting Started guide.

You also need to access the system where the cluster is running, either by logging into it or by using a remote shell.

Access the database shell

sudo $(which kubectl) exec -it $(sudo $(which kubectl) get pods --kubeconfig /etc/rancher/k3s/k3s.yaml -n united-manufacturing-hub -l -o jsonpath="{.items[0]}") --kubeconfig /etc/rancher/k3s/k3s.yaml -n united-manufacturing-hub -- psql -U postgres

This command will open a psql shell connected to the default postgres database.

Connect to the factoryinsight database:

\c factoryinsight

Change the language

Execute the following command to change the language:

INSERT INTO configurationtable (customer, languagecode) VALUES ('factoryinsight', <code>) ON CONFLICT(customer) DO UPDATE SET languagecode=<code>;

where <code> is the language code. For example, to change the language to German, use 0.
