TI Process with File data source should allow local or server file selection

Post by gtonkin » Mon Nov 02, 2020 11:03 am

Currently in PAW when creating a TI process that uses a file as a data source, you can add files from your local machine or via a UNC/mapped drive.

As PAW is web based, you are not working on the TM1 sever or possibly the environment in which the TM1 server would normally access files e.g. a network share that the TM1 service account has access to.

To create a process without the relevant files means that you need to SFTP the file from the cloud environment, connect to the server etc. etc.

There should be an option to allow you to browse locally or browse from a server perspective.
