    This issue happens in the drm-api-adapter when it attempts to serialize the objects as SOAP to feed to the Java web service. To work around this issue, edit the drm-api-adapter.exe.config file, under the <system.serviceModel> section.

    Under <behaviors>, <endpointBehaviors> add a new behavior:

    <behavior name="httpBehavior">

    <dataContractSerializer maxItemsInObjectGraph="2147483647"/>

    </behavior>

    Apply this new httpBehavior to all the http endpoints, located under <services>, <service name="Oracle.Drm.APIAdapter" ...> by adding the behaviorConfiguration="httpBehavior" attribute.

    For example:

    <endpoint address = "Automator" name="IAutomatorMgr"

    binding="basicHttpBinding" bindingConfiguration="basicHttpConfiguration"

    contract = "Oracle.Drm.Interfaces.IAutomator"

    bindingNamespace="http://www.oracle.com/drm/"/>

    will become:

    <endpoint address = "Automator" name="IAutomatorMgr"

    binding="basicHttpBinding" behaviorConfiguration="httpBehavior"

    bindingConfiguration="basicHttpConfiguration" contract = "Oracle.Drm.Interfaces.IAutomator"

    bindingNamespace="http://www.oracle.com/drm/"/>

    This attribute must be inserted on all of the endpoint elements.

  • 10055031 -- Find nodes does not jump to the correct node if it is a shared node.

Documentation Updates

Accessing EPM System Product Documentation

The most recent version of each EPM System product guide is available for downloading or viewing from the EPM System Documentation area of the OTN Web site (http://www.oracle.com/technology/documentation/epm.html). You can also use the Oracle Enterprise Performance Management System Documentation Portal (http://www.oracle.com/us/solutions/ent-performance-bi/technical-information-147174.html), which also links to EPM Supported Platform Matrices, My Oracle Support, and other information resources.

Deployment-related documentation is also available from the Oracle Software Delivery Cloud Web site (http://edelivery.oracle.com/EPD/WelcomePage/get_form).

Individual product guides are available for download on the Oracle Technology Network Web site only.

Copying and Pasting Code Snippets from PDFs

When you cut and paste code snippets from a PDF file, some characters can be lost during the paste operation, making the code snippet invalid. Workaround: Cut and paste from the HTML version of the document.

User's Guide Updates

When creating a Generation export, the Oracle Hyperion Data Relationship Management User's Guide states that a Generation export can be saved to a database table. This is incorrect. A Generation export can be saved only to a text file.

Administator's Guide Updates

Setting Data Relationship Management Transaction History Logging Levels

The following information should be included in the "Working with System Preferences" chapter of the Oracle Hyperion Data Relationship Management Administrator's Guide.

You must have application administrator privileges to set Data Relationship Management Transaction History logging levels. Set the TransactionLevels system preference to specify the action types to capture in the transaction history.

To set Transaction History logging levels:

  1. In the Data Relationship Management Web client, select Administer.

  2. Under Metadata, expand the System Preferences and edit the TransactionLevels preference.

  3. In TransactionLevels, select one or more transaction level types:

    • Logged Action records basic logging information, such as users logging in and logging out.

    • Core Action records actions that change the version, hierarchy, or node information, such as Add Node, Change Property, or Move Node.

    • Result Action records actions that result from core actions. For example, if the "clear all below core" action is performed, then properties are cleared from individual nodes. Clearing properties from the individual nodes is a result action.

    • Loss Action records loss of data due to a core action. For example, when a node is deleted, the defined properties for that node are deleted, which is a loss action. Loss actions are controlled by the LossLevel system preference.

      Note:

      If the Loss Action is specified, or if the AllowAsOf system preference is turned on, then Core Actions are tracked, even if not set in the TransactionLevels system preference.

  4. Set the LossLevel preference:

    • Defined – Only values that are specifically set at the node are tracked when the node is deleted.

    • All Items – Derived, default, and inherited values are tracked in the LossAction.

  5. Stop and restart the application, or restart the Data Relationship Management service.

Loading or Viewing Large Files in the Migration Utility

The following information should be included in the Migrating Oracle Hyperion Data Relationship Management Metadata chapter of the Oracle Hyperion Data Relationship Management Administrator's Guide.

When loading or viewing a large file using the Migration Utility, the following error may occur:

Unexpected Error There was an unexpected error trying to process your request: Maximum request length exceeded.

This error occurs because the default limit for uploaded files is 4 MB. To change the default limit to 20 MB, add this setting within the <system.web> element of the web.config file:

<httpRuntime maxRequestLength="20480" executionTimeout="3600" />

Note:

By default, the web.config file is located in C:\Oracle\Middleware\EPMSystem11R1\products\DataRelationshipManagement\client\migration-client.

For information on changing configuration of the Migration Utility, see “Configuring the Migration Utility” in the Oracle Hyperion Data Relationship Management Installation Guide.
