Re: Devops in PA/TM1

I recently discovered BareTail https://www.baremetalsoft.com/baretail/

Very useful for looking at log files on a running TM1 instance.

Re: TM1 rule subst with dimension element

Sometimes it can help to wrap up your element reference in something else:

Subst(DIMNM('abc',DIMIX('abc',!abc)),1,1)@<>'2'

Re: TI - Add new element in alphabetical order under consolidation

I've had to solve similar problems in the past with a staging dimension and a published dimension, it's an extra level of complexity but if you are building the dimension with TI anyway it's not really an issue. Some slightly more advanced features in DimensionSortOrder (like specifying an alias) wo...

Re: Best Azure VM Type for Planning Analytics

Definitely speak with your IBM partner. As for Express being limited to 1600 PVUs (I think you are right about that by the way) the actual number is irrelevant. In a VM environment you are *required* to run ILMT to monitor your VM isn't using more PVUs than you are licensed for. In the event of an I...

Re: Best Azure VM Type for Planning Analytics

Before moving to a VM environment, especially a cloud based one, I would strongly suggest you look very carefully at your licensing. If you are licensed on a PVU basis as soon as you move to a VM, even a local one, you will be entering the murky waters of 'sub capacity licensing' and the IBM License...

Re: "IF Statement" - Returning ELSE output for blank intersections

Hi Mark To evaluate a rule based on a NULL/empty cell is counter-intuitive in TM1, the rules engine with skipcheck and feeders is all about hypersparsity. As usual with TM1 there are several different approaches you can take to solve the problem: 1) There's no need to put any rules in the lookup cub...

Re: C Level Rules with attributes evaluations in N level elements

I think we may be talking at cross purposes here. I guess I didn't express myself very clearly (it was early, before coffee). The point I was trying to make was: If you use C: your rule will apply to all C level elements in all dimensions thus preventing natural consolidation. If the OP only wants t...

Re: C Level Rules with attributes evaluations in N level elements

If you want the rule to apply at the C level on the time dimension but N level on other dimensions you can't use =C: in the rule, that limits the rule to C level elements across all dimensions. As you are already using an if test to limit Month to the C level elements you want, try simply removing t...

Re: Checking Element Level Security in a TI processes

Thanks for the replies. As Paul rightly points out the right approach depends on a lot of factors, it's one of the great strengths of TM1 that we can adopt so many different solutions to the problem. The reason I shy away from the security lookup cube is because it is adding another step of maintena...

Checking Element Level Security in a TI processes

This is hopefully one for the useful section. John Turner and I came up with a fairly slick solution to a problem this morning and I thought it was worth sharing. As you may or may not know, all TI processes, regardless of who actually executes them, run with DataAdmin rights. I confess that I didn'...

Re: Warning - read only users

I've been there and done that too, caused a moment of panic!

I added a rule to the }ClientProperties cube to set myself back to zero.

Re: Filtered by string measure in a 3 dimension cube

Hi Steve

The Filter by View Extract icon is greyed out in your last screenshot...

I see the same behaviour as Wim, as I press Record Expresssion, that icon and the OK button grey out.

Re: SUBNM in TM1Web

The problem is most likely due to the ampersand &. I’ve experienced issues in TM1Web with concatenation, particularly when building MDX queries dynamically.

Try putting

Code: Select all

 ="Ausgleich_"&Subset 
into a separate cell and referencing that cell instead.

Re: TM1RunTI and number of cores/threads

Might be going slightly off-topic here but I think it could be useful... In order to make TM1RunTI a little palatable/easier to use we have a generic TI process (TM1RunTi_Did_It) as a kind of surrogate TM1RunTI. This is a TI process that has a dummy 17 field CSV file as a datasource and a single par...
