I'm unable to install my Commcare application on my mobile device for testing. I suspect it's related to the size of the lookup tables, but not sure. It's a very big set of lookup tables with one tab having 900k rows.
You can use a browser, or a command like curl from the command line. I suspect that the data being transferred to the device is very large.
There might be alternatives to using lookup tables. Could you say more about the data in the lookup tables? In particular, do all the mobile users need all the data? Or is there a way we can break the data up so that users get only the data they need?
A colleague just let me know that lookup tables are only sent to the device when the user logs in, not when the app is installed. If the installation is failing, the problem is more likely to be multimedia.
It's actually right after login that we receive that dialogue. The process is:
Enter app code -> Locating application -> Setting up app (71 steps) -> login screen
Enter credentials -> click 'Log in' -> connecting to server -> contacting server for sync -> server contacted, downloading data -> Processing Data from Server (stuck here at step 5 of 29)
As for the other questions about needing all these options, I believe they may be necessary - many are cascaded options that are filtered as users choose initial options in the decision tree. There are also two languages for each option. I'm not sure if there's a way to test by splitting it into two separate apps, one for each language, if that helps.
One thing to double check - is the lookup table indexed?
I'm not sure whether to expect something that size to work or not, but the indexing should make it much more likely for it to be able to function incrementally rather than fitting in memory all at once.
Hi Clayton, it looks like some fields are, some aren't, if I'm understanding the question correctly
I will PM the 'type' tab of the downloaded tables to you showing the various tables, fields and indexing status.
I've removed all data but English and it's still sticking at the same point on mobile sync. I don't suppose there's any way anyone on the Dimagi side would have insight into the app in a mobile dev environment to see what's happening if I share app code and creds?
