Select Yes if you want Extender to create a log entry for each user as they log into the Sage 300 company. The date and time, user id and Machine address where the user logged in from is recorded in the log.
Select No if you do not want to log the log-in activity.
By default, Extender is configured to use Python 3.4
Staring with Extender PU9.00, users have the option to use Python 3.8.8.
Note: This is particular relevant for developers who want to use Python packages that only support more recent versions of Python.
Important! Changing the Python version applies to all scripts in all Sage 300 databases setup on the same server. Make sure you have tested all customizations in all databases on a test environment before switching to the new version in your production environment.
If you select Cancel after reviewing the warning messages, the version doesn't change.
When upgrading from Python 3.4 to Python 3.8.8
Extender doesn't install the following libraries with Python 3.8.8: requests, requests_oauthlib and urllib3.
If you are using those libraries, you need to install them manually.
