Re: Using old clients with new planning analytics server

But I have a question. Once I have done the step 4, I see my instances that are migrated to Planning Analytics. But I don't see any more 10.2.2 instances that are not migrated yet. Is there a way to see at the same time PA instances, and 10.2.2 instances ? Hi Catherine, Yes, you will need to change...

}Views_* and }Subsets_* control dimensions

This is a bit of a public service announcement and a bit of a question. I have noticed that as of PA 2.0.5 there are new control dimensions available which list all existing public views and subsets: - Dimensions named '}Views_ cube ' list public views associated with each cube. - Dimensions named '...

Re: Cube Viewer suppress zeroes hiding non-zero cells

There is a bug that one my customers currently has, I believe they are on PA 2.0.5 but not 100% as I don’t have access to install etc in their environment. The issue means that check feeders never shows “not fed” - I tested this with a simple a = b rule on a 2 dim cube. Again due to not having acce...

Re: What is the TM1 element member name maximum size limitation?

Apologies for this thread necromancy, but maybe someone will find some answers to the actual question in the thread title useful. The maximum number of characters in an element name seems to be 5459 , at least in PA 2.0.5, but this seems to be a front-end (Architect and Perspectives) limitation, not...

Re: Copy Process

It would be helpful to see your TI code. A few questions: - Are the rule-calculated values in the source cube at the N or C level? - What are the following extract settings for the source view in your TI: ViewExtractSkipCalcsSet ViewExtractSkipRuleValuesSet The reason I'm asking is that it's possibl...

Re: Planning Analytics using twice the memory of 10.1

One thing that does not hold true is that they seem to be saying that it did this anyway, in previous versions, but instead of doing it at startup it did it when you first did an MDX query. We have lots of MDX queries in the system and it is inconceivable that the system could be running for very l...

Re: Zero out cube view from source elements

If your data source contains a record for all the intersections in the cube that you want to update why bother zeroing it out? Just replace the existing value with the new one. This accomplishes the same thing as zeroing out and updating. One case where such zeroout would be needed is if data in th...

Re: Zero out cube view from source elements

Sure this can be done in a single TI, although it is not by any means a typical use case. Remember that if an element disappears from your data source it will not be zeroed out and that data will stay in the cube indefinitely. The way to do what you want is to use the Metadata tab to collect all the...

Step 3 on Kamil's post implies (or at least it did to me) that you don't need to add the ibmtm1.arm file to the local install \ssl directory. Using 10.2 and 10.2.2 it wouldn't work for me unless that file is in the \ssl directory, no matter which directory I pointed the SSL Certificate Authority to...

Re: stored values in tm1

How are others overcoming this issue . do you always write roundp when there is a decimal value stored . To be frank in most cases* this is not a problem at all. Number formatting usually takes care of the small discrepancies that you can generally only see on the fifteenth or sixteenth significant...

Re: Filtering Organizational Hierarchy Dimension using User logon

First of all, security in TM1 is done via groups. So create group A for user A and group B for user B and assign users accordingly. Create alternate hierarchies in the organizational dimension and using element security restrict group A and group B to their appropriate hierarchies. The template will...

Re: Direct version of dimension updates

DimensionUpdateDirect is very important. If you don't use it to recompile the dim after using any of the Direct insert functions then I find that: a) rules will not be attached to the new elements; b) the first use of DIMIX will put an IX lock on the dimension - something you don't want to have if y...

Re: How To Avoid LF in source file

I think you'll have to do some sort of pre-processing of the file to remove the unwanted LF characters. You can do it directly in TI (if you have a way of recognising where the genuine new lines should be - e.g. any LF within a string enclosed in double quotes would be a candidate for removal), but ...

Re: TM1 cube not showing data in Analysis/Report studio

The report doesn't even have to be zero-suppressed. For a number of years now the default behaviour for TM1 as a data source for Cognos BI has been to do server-side zero suppression. Which means that if your cube is not fed correctly you will see no data in Cognos. Server-side zero suppression can ...

Re: Parent Element in Subset

Subsets do not store any relationships between elements, so unless your subset is designed to encode relationships in the element order itself (e.g. the parent you're after is always directly before the child or something similar) then you're out of luck. Of course, ELPAR can be used to get any pare...
