It's here. IBM Cognos TM1 10.2.2 Fix Pack 4 is now available and, along with a list of all the bug fixes linked below, there have been some new features added. Lodestar encourages all of our clients who are on 10.2.2 to install this fixapck for two reasons:
- It’s always a good idea to be on the latest fix pack since it could fix issues that are known to you and, in some cases, issues of which you are not aware.
- Added features – some of which we are going to talk about next.
Temporary Objects in TI Processes – With the latest fix pack, you now have the option of creating temporary objects when using functions SubsetCreate, SubsetCreateByMDX, and ViewCreate. There could be few benefit to this. These temporary objects are never saved and just used for the duration of the process. With this new feature, you potentially don’t have to create and delete subsets and views in TI Process resulting in fewer lines of code. We haven’t tested this theory yet and will provide an update on this as soon as we do.
SpreadErrorInTIDiscardsAllChanges – This is a new parameter that can be added to configuration file. With this enabled, all spreading done by TI process is discarded if the TI process results in an error. This could be helpful in ensuring data spreads are accurate.
PLEASE NOTE: This is fix pack is inclusive of Fixpack 1-3 so no need to apply those if you haven’t already.
