Community Cafe Posting

I don't know whether it's a case of nobody ever looks at the Community Cafe or, more likely, hardly anybody is subscribed to it, but if you see "Community Cafe" on the list of forums on the main page I suggest that you drop in. There may be something of interest to you there, but it's a touch time c...

Re: Server Locked after save data process and save data is running for a long time .

I don't believe this; they STILL haven't fixed this as of 2.0.6. I kept getting: 12608 [648] ERROR 2019-08-20 12:15:01.891 TM1.Server sf_DeleteFile: Error on file "Path:\CubeName}vues\zRBXZeroOut.vue$".

Re: Active Form Auto-Rebuild

I know I should know the answer to this but is there a setting somewhere that will cause an Active Form to rebuild automatically whenever a new value is selected from a SUBNM formula in TM1web? Interestingly I can't find a way to make that NOT happen in PA2. I know that in older versions I did some...

Communal activity - nominate your favourite FAQ

The once-mighty FAQ thread is in desperate need of a refurbishment. Dust, cobwebs, and references to sub-versions of version 8 can be found everywhere. At present it looks like a deceased estate.

Re: RAM Usage much larger than Cubes

Hi Mark Have you recently upgraded to PA? If so, it is probably due to MUNs. From memory the topic that I raised on this was called something like Planning Analytics using twice the memory. Do a search and you should find it. It can be found here , in fact. I've also added it to Miss Havisham's fav...

Re: Bedrock 4 for IBM Planning Analytics is available

Personally, I don't think I'll be jumping into the Bedrock 4 pool all that soon. I have it on all of my servers, but this morning was my first encounter with using it. It was not auspicious. It was a call to }bedrock.cube.viewandsubsets.create, with pLogOutput set to 1. Yeah, all good, hunky dory, n...

Re: Updating Element Attributes in TI Process

I know I'm very late to the party on this, but today is the first time I'd had cause to use this function. It appears that if you feed an MDX expression into the third argument to update the subset: SubsetMDXSet(dimension, subsetname, [MDX_expression]); Then the function just leaves it as a dynamic ...

Re: TM1 Web 2.0.6 - Bogus Timeouts

We just upgraded our system to PA 2.0.6 over the weekend and a couple of users (well, me so far but I'm expecting more as they get to the office today) hit this one. Ops Console was fine by the way. The password change trick didn't work for me (either via Perspectives or Web). But what does seem to...

Re: Fix Pack Releases: 10.2 Series

I've just added a link to 10.2.2 FP7 Interim Fix 22.

One of the things it addresses is a security flash that IBM released last week, the details of which will be found here.

There's nothing mentioned about this affecting PA2 installations.

That said, I would not necessarily recommend using people's names as principal element names. If someone changes their name (as some newly married women have an annoying (from a system point of view) habit of doing), you'll need to export all of the data relating to that element and create a new on...

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

Sheesh this ran a little off topic. To be fair my original reply was just the first line pointing to the DimensionSortOrder function.
