Allow restarting of (deployment) service on personal environment

By Tim Timperman on 14 Mar

Please allow in a personal environment the different outsystems services to be restarted through lifetime. Or at least the deployment service. I've seen numerous topics about this on the forum, and I assume support has better things to do then to restart services on people's personal environments. 

I had to wait an entire week (= exactly 1 week + 10 mins !) for a response from support that my deployment service was up and running again. (It was down the whole time)

I know this is a shared resource, but what harm is there in restarting the deployment service if it is down anyway. And all the functionality is already there, because the function is available on enterprice cloud environments.

The deployment service is a Windows service afaik, so restarting it (other than via Windows) may not be trivial?

If you have an enterprise cloud environment, the button is there. On personal environments, the functionality is hidden. So they already have the code to do it, it's just a matter of showing the button on personal environments.

I've made an extension with some very simple .NET code to do it, but I get an "access denied" when I try to execute it. The user on the application pool just doesn't have the rights to stop/start services, which makes perfect sense. But it was worth the try.
