Purpose

This document includes important, late-breaking information about this release of Oracle Hyperion Reporting and Analysis products. Review this Readme thoroughly before installing Reporting and Analysis products.

New Features in This Release

The following enhancements are included in this release.

EPM Workspace

  • Bidirectional language support

Financial Reporting

  • A new text function, LabeledCellText, retrieves the textual content from a Oracle Hyperion Financial Management database connection through the ADM driver.

  • Ability to change alias tables for reports: There is now an entry in the alias table drop-down on the grid-level property sheet labeled “User Point of View.” When users choose this alias table value, the alias table defined in UserPOV is used when running any grid against Oracle Essbase or Oracle Hyperion Planning. The alias table is defined in UserPOV using the “Setup of View” dialog in Oracle Hyperion Financial Reporting Studio.

    Note:

    This does not affect the alias table specified in conditional formatting or conditional suppression. In those two areas, an end user indicates a specific alias table and alias values in those tables.

  • A new property, MissingValuesAreZeroInFormulas, that determines how to treat #missing values during the evaluation of grid formulas and calculations. This property is similar to the existing MissingValuesAreZeroInFormulasInHFM property except that it applies to all datasources (not just Financial Management-based grids).

  • New Financial Reporting preference, "None." Use this preference to suppress printing annotations as footnotes in PDF files.

  • Ability to format annotation text, including bullets, numbering, indentation, color, justification, and undo and redo.

    Note:

    Font type and point size in the New Annotation dialog is not available in this release.

  • Bidirectional support for Financial Reporting Studio.

  • New print engine. A new PDF generation architecture enables the Print Server to also run on UNIX and eliminates the need for Adobe Distiller and GhostScript PDF generation software. No customer licensing of third-party PDF software is required.

    Two additional changes have been made to other functionality as a result of the new Print engine architecture:

    • Financial Reporting Studio Print Preview launches PDF in Adobe Reader instead of opening a Print Preview window.

    • Batch output to a physical Printer is no longer available.

  • Oracle Hyperion Enterprise Performance Management System Lifecycle Management support for the following:

    • Financial Reporting batch jobs

    • Financial Reporting User POV's

    • Financial Reporting annotations

  • Support for Financial Management Extended Dimensionality in Financial Reporting

  • Support for Planning: Ability to attach multiple user notes and multiple documents to a cell in Financial Reporting

  • Financial Reporting Studio Explore has a new look and feel similar to Microsoft Windows Explorer. Note that shortcut menus are not available in this release. Users must use the main menu to add a new folder or delete objects.

Interactive Reporting

  • Users can export files to Microsoft Excel 2007 using the *.xlsx file format

Reporting and Analysis Framework

  • Bidirectional language support

Web Analysis

  • The Export Excel Wizard lets you export one or all document pages or multiple data objects with one or more pages from an Oracle Hyperion Web Analysis document residing in the EPM Workspace repository. All Web Analysis data objects (spreadsheet, chart, pinboard) are exported as Microsoft Excel spreadsheets. Freeform Grid and SQL spreadsheets cannot be exported. For information, see the Oracle Hyperion Web Analysis Workspace User's Guide.

New Features in Release 11.1.2.1.00

The following enhancements are included in Release 11.1.2.1.00.

EPM Workspace

Removal of CMC

CMC is no longer a separate Web application. All functionality has been merged into the Administer module. For more information, see the Oracle Hyperion Reporting and Analysis Framework Administrator's Guide

Accessing Financial Close Management, Release 11.1.2.00 from EPM System, Release 9.3.3.00

Oracle Hyperion Financial Close Management, Release 11.1.2.00 can be launched from Oracle Hyperion Enterprise Performance Management Workspace, Release 9.3.3.00. EPM Workspace is providing a sample Financial Close Management HTML file that is located in a designated directory for an administrator to modify. Users can then access Financial Close Management artifacts from the Favorites menu in EPM Workspace.

Note that the Administrator must update the sample Financial Close Management HTML file. Once complete, you can do the following:

  • Launch Financial Close Management 11.1.2.00

  • Import the Financial Close Management HTML file into the repository

  • Make changes to provisioning

  • Add artifacts for Financial Close Management to Favorites menu

Single Instance Feature of EPM Workspace

Currently, when /workspace and /workspace/index.jsp is issued, it launches a new instance of EPM Workspace in a separate browser window. With the single instance feature, subsequent invocations of /workspace/ and /workspace/index.jsp opens items in EPM Workspace tabs, even when launched from an external URL. Single instance also prevents extra EPM Workspace windows closing existing session(s) where multiple EPM Workspace windows were previously allowed.

Note:

Embedded EPM Workspace behavior remains the same. These are also known as Smartcut URLs.

URL Parameter Support

By default, there can only be one instance of EPM Workspace on a client machine. This can be overridden using the URL parameter, multi_process. There are instances where multiple sessions of EPM Workspace must remain open. For example, Financial Management may need to do a side by side comparison of applications.

To handle these instances, EPM Workspace has created a URL parameter to allow multiple window names. The parameter name and setting to use is multi_process=true. You can append the parameter multi_process=true to the EPM Workspace URL.

Note:

You should not use this URL parameter for any other purpose. Oracle cannot support Financial Close Management or other products externally launching EPM Workspace items in an EPM Workspace tab.

Financial Reporting

Book Enhancements

Financial Reporting supports Oracle Hyperion Public Sector Planning and Budgeting, enabling you to create Budget Books that contain both reports and textual data. All customers can take advantage of the following book enhancements in this release:

  • Move Book objects and sections from one location to another within the Book Editor using cut and paste book, or drag and drop for enhanced book editing.

  • New right pane in the Book Editor for adding items to the Book and for Book Setup. There are two modes for the right pane, Add Document and Book Setup. To set the mode, select Add Document or Book Setup from the shortcut menu at the top of the pane.

    Note:

    The shortcut menus in the Book Editor no longer contain menu items for adding documents, as this is now handled from the right pane.

For detailed information, see Oracle Hyperion Financial Reporting Workspace User's Guide.

Microsoft Office Integration Enhancements

You can now embed Financial Reporting related content links into Microsoft Word documents included in a Book. This feature applies only to HTML Web page output, not HTML or PDF Preview in the EPM Workspace.

Similar to the FRExecute function, you must publish the Microsoft Word document to the EPM Workspace (or UCM) repository, and then insert it into the Book. To add the related content links using Microsoft Office Hyperlinks:

  1. Select the desired text in the document, right click, and then select Hyperlink…,

  2. Enter the appropriate URL in the Address field. Examples of appropriate URLs:

    For documents published in EPM Workspace:

    http://<servername>:19000/workspace/browse/get/ReportFolder/frword1.doc

    Universal Content Management (Stellent) documents

    idc://<server name>:4444/DM000211

    For Financial Reporting reports

    http://<servername>:19000/workspace/browse/get/ReportFolder/report1

    http://<servername>:19000/workspace/browse/get/ReportFolder/report1?viewAs=html

    http://<servername>:19000/workspace/browse/get/ReportFolder/report1?viewAs=pdf

Essbase Failover Support

Financial Reporting has a new Essbase failover capability. To use this capability, change the Financial Reporting Essbase server name to a URL. For example:

http(s)://<OHS-host>:<OHS-port>/<APS>-app-context>/clustername="custome=cluster"

Schedule Server

The Scheduler server is combined with the other Financial Reporting services in this release. There is no special configuration required other than using native application server clustering. Ensure that all network shares and physical printers are accessible from all WebLogic instance machines if you store output in external directory or direct output to a printer.

New Features in Release 11.1.2.0.00

The following enhancements are included in Release 11.1.2.0.00.

EPM Workspace

Administrative Push Notification Message

Push notifications enable administrators to push a system wide message to all users of a pending system shutdown for maintenance or any other information they want to communicate to all users

Hostnames That Resolve to IPv6 Addresses

With this release, many Oracle Enterprise Performance Management System products support hostnames that resolve to IPv6 addresses. See the Oracle Enterprise Performance Management System Certification Matrix. IPv4 support (both hostname and IP address) remains unchanged from earlier releases.

Oracle Configuration Manager

Oracle Configuration Manager (OCM) integrates with My Oracle Support and provides configuration information for Oracle software. It assists in the troubleshooting, maintenance, and diagnostics of your EPM System deployment. For more information, see the Oracle Enterprise Performance Management System Installation and Configuration Guide.

Oracle Diagnostic Logging

Most EPM System products have adopted Oracle Diagnostic Logging (ODL) as the logging mechanism. The ODL framework provides uniform support for managing log files; including log file rotation, maximum log file size, and the maximum log directory size. For more information, see “Using EPM System Logs” in Oracle Enterprise Performance Management System Installation and Configuration Troubleshooting Guide.

SSL Configurations

EPM System supports the following types of SSL configuration:

  • Full SSL Deployment (including data access)

  • SSL Terminating at the Web Server

  • SSL accelerators (Off-loading)

  • Two-way SSL

For more information about the SSL configurations, see Oracle Enterprise Performance Management System Security Administration Guide

Transparent Logon

EPM Workspace administrators can write custom code to perform Single Sign-on authentication that transparently logs a user into EPM Workspace using Oracle Hyperion Shared Services security classes or a custom authentication class.

EPM Workspace Server Settings

EPM Workspace server settings enable administrators to edit EPM Workspace server registry values.

Financial Reporting

Book Enhancements

Financial Reporting supports Public Sector Planning and Budgeting, enabling you to create Budget Books that contain both reports and textual data. All customers can take advantage of the following book enhancements in this release:

  • Define a book with a Table of Contents containing sections and indented subsections.

  • Insert new book object types, such as URL links, heading text label and HTML files, into the book. These object types can appear in the book table of contents. Existing external files types in addition to HTML files are: Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Word, Microsoft PowerPoint, PDF files, and text files.

  • Display custom labels for objects and reports in the book table of contents.

  • Cut and paste book objects and sections for enhanced book editing.

  • Display or hide sections and objects in the book table of contents. When sections or objects are hidden in the table of contents, they are still included in the “Complete Book in PDF” output, but not displayed in the table of contents.

  • Use Microsoft Word with Oracle Hyperion Smart View for Office queries and embedded Financial Reporting reports (using a custom function). The new custom function, FRExecute, enables users to embed a report, grid or chart into Microsoft Word. The report content is retrieved into Microsoft Word when the book is scheduled in a batch output.

  • Generate book output as a static HTML Web site. The HTML Web site provides built-in search capability. Templates are provided for HTML layout and page customization. HTML Web site output is generated when scheduling the book in a batch.

  • Insert a link in a book or as part of Related Content in a report to a document stored in a Content Management System, such as Oracle Universal Management, EPM Workspace, or some other third-party system.

  • New Properties pane at the bottom of the Book Editor that allows editing properties of the selected Book object/file. In addition, the Book Setup dialog settings have been moved here.

For detailed information, see Oracle Hyperion Financial Reporting Workspace User's Guide.

Usage Tracking for Reports and Books

Financial Reporting now tracks information about reports and books, such as who is using a report and when a report was last accessed. Information output to a log file includes time/date stamp, report/book name, user id, and whether the report action was a preview or design.

Enhanced Support for Essbase Date and Text Measures

Financial Reporting displays Essbase Date and Text measures, when they are included in a report. Date measures are formatted based on a user-preference setting

Annotations on Formula Cells

Annotations can now be created for formula cells within a Financial Reporting report.

Related Content Enhancements

Related Content links can be created in any part of a report or snapshot report, such as formula and text rows and columns, row and column headers, images, text boxes and even all of the cells in a grid. Related Content links can also be accessed in reports that are launched from books.

XBRL Creation and Management in Disclosure Management

The current XBRL functionality available in the Financial Reporting Studio allows a report designer to create a report, map XBRL metadata (concepts, context, units and footnotes), and export the report output as an instance document. All the mappings are stored with the individual report.

Oracle Hyperion Disclosure Management is a new product initiative that allows you to assemble a reporting package for submission to a regulatory agency. The first release offers a complete XBRL creation and management solution with the following functionality:

  • Enterprise level XBRL mapping that consists of report level mapping within Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel and reusable data source metadata mapping within Financial Management, Planning, and Essbase, where mapping is performed in Smart View and Financial Reporting. ERP and other data sources can also be mapped within Microsoft Office.

  • XBRL Taxonomy management, editing and viewing. Taxonomy management includes extensions to taxonomies, which allows companies to easily adapt to the evolving XBRL standards. Updated taxonomies can be used against existing mappings.

  • Instance document creation, validation and viewing. Instance Documents generated from Microsoft Office document mappings can be comprehensively viewed and validated for correctness.

The Disclosure Management XBRL functionality is the strategic direction for Oracle’s XBRL solution offering. Oracle recognizes that some customers may have already invested in, and implemented, the legacy Financial Reporting Studio XBRL solution. Beyond the 11.1.2.00 release, the legacy solution will continue to be available and maintained for the foreseeable future. However, there will not be a migration path between the two solutions. Customers who choose to adopt Disclosure Management, in addition to gaining robust XBRL features, will be able to take advantage of the additional future product enhancements to Oracle Hyperion Disclosure Management.

Financial Close Management

This release integrates with Financial Close Management. Financial Close Management helps companies define, execute, and report on the interdependent activities of a financial close period. See the Oracle Hyperion Financial Close Management Readme

Financial Reporting Server Components Combined into One Server

The following three Financial Reporting server components have been combined into one server component: FR Reports server, FR Web Applications server, and FR Scheduler server. The Printer server still remains a separate server component.

Interactive Reporting

Support for SFTP

SFTP protocol is now supported for distribution outputs generated by jobs and schedules. For more information, see Oracle Hyperion Reporting and Analysis Framework Administrator's Guide

Interactive Reporting Roles

Two new roles, IR HTML Viewer and IR WebClient Viewer, have been added for Oracle Hyperion Interactive Reporting. For additional information, see Oracle Enterprise Performance Management System User and Role Security Guide.

Note: For instructions to upgrade, see the Oracle Enterprise Performance Management System Installation and Configuration Guide, "Upgrading EPM System Products."

Table 1. Table

Release Upgrade Path FromTo

11.1.2.x

11.1.2.2

Note that when moving from Release 11.1.2.0.x or 11.1.2.1.x to Release 11.1.2.2, you use the "Apply Maintenance Release" option in Oracle Hyperion Enterprise Performance Management System Installer, instead of following the documented upgrade procedures. For Oracle Hyperion Financial Close Management, applying the maintenance release is supported only from Release 11.1.2.1.

11.1.1.3.x

11.1.2.2

11.1.1.4.x

11.1.2.2

9.3.3.x

Note: If you were using Oracle Hyperion EPM Architect Release 9.3.1, you can download the Shared Services release 9.3.3 from My Oracle Support.

11.1.2.2

A release earlier than Release 9.3.3.x

If you are upgrading from a release earlier than 9.3.3.x, you must first upgrade to a supported release and then upgrade to release 11.1.2.2. For upgrade procedures for the earlier release, see the product installation guides for the interim release that you are upgrading to.

An environment that includes multiple releases, which can include an environment with one instance of Shared Services or an environment with two instances of Shared Services

See "Upgrading from an Environment with Multiple Releases" in the "Upgrading EPM System Products" chapter in the Oracle Enterprise Performance Management System Installation and Configuration Guide.

Note: If you are starting from Release 9.2.0.3+, 9.3.0.x, 9.3.1.x (except for Essbase 9.3.1.4.1, 9.3.1.5, 9.3.1.6, and 9.3.1.7), or 11.1.1.x, Oracle recommends that you upgrade to Release 11.1.1.3 as your interim release. If you are starting from an earlier release, Oracle recommends that you upgrade to the highest level release that directly supports upgrade from your starting release. Security Synchronization between Essbase and Shared Services was removed in Essbase Release 9.3, starting with Release 9.3.1.4.1. Essbase and Oracle Hyperion Shared Services Release 11.1.1.3, however, still synchronize security information. For this reason, if you are using Essbase Release 9.3.1.4.1, 9.3.1.5, 9.3.1.6, or 9.3.1.7, you must first upgrade all products to Release 9.3.3, instead of Release 11.1.1.3.

EPM Workspace

  • 13872149 -- When launching OBIEE 10.1.3.4.2 from EPM Workspace 11.1.2.2, a message about the inability to load blank.html may occur. To resolve this problem, edit the httpd.conf that EPM System Web server uses. Just below the line that reads:

    RewriteRule ^/interop/bpmstatic/(.*) /epmstatic/bpmui/$1 [PT]

    add this line:

    RewriteRule ^/workspace/thirdparty/bindows/html/blank.html /epmstatic/bpmui/thirdparty/bindows/html/blank.html [PT]

    This directive must be on one line, starting with RewriteRule and ending with [PT].

  • 13828819 --In Internet Explorer 9, launching the EPM System Architect Grid Editor may cause the EPM Workspace screen to appear blank. Resizing the browser window resolves the problem.

  • 13805926 -- If columns are not displayed correctly in Microsoft Internet Explorer 9, resize the column to display data correctly.

  • 13799595 -- Compatibility View must be disabled for EPM Workspace. By default, Microsoft Internet Explorer 9 enables Compatibility View for Intranet sites. When Compatibility View is enabled with EPM Workspace, problems such as truncated dialogs, incorrect object selection, and tree views expanded unexpectedly may occur. Also, error messages are displayed when Financial Management and Planning applications launch.

    The default Compatibility View Setting in Microsoft Internet Explorer 9 cannot be changed for hosts. To resolve this problem, clear all boxes in the Compatibility View Settings dialog. This ensures that Compatibility View is disabled for EPM Workspace. To enable and disable Compatibility View, Administrators can create group policy settings using the policy name “Use Policy List of Quirks Mode” at the path Windows Components\Internet Explorer\Compatibility View. See http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg699401.aspx.

  • 13777614 -- Member names containing the ampersand character (&) cannot be used in Financial Reporting reports in related content.

  • 13733894 -- For Mozilla Firefox version 4 or higher, you must install the Mozilla Firefox XUL add-on to view the EPM Workspace logon page. The add-on uses XUL technology when Mozilla Firefox connects to the EPM System Web server. The add-on can be installed and configured by the end user, or an administrator can configure the add-on before distributing it to users.

    For users to install and configure the XUL add-on:

    1. Install the Remote XUL Manager add-on from https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/remote-xul-manager/ into Mozilla Firefox, and then restart Mozilla Firefox.

    2. In Mozilla Firefox, select Tools, then Web Developer, and then Remote XUL Manager to open the Remote XUL Manager dialog.

    3. In Remote XUL Manager, click Add..., and then add an entry for each host or domain name the EPM System Web server uses, then select File, and then select Close. For example, a typical deployment might have a test EPM System Web server at epmtest.example.com and a production server at epm.example.com. The Remote XUL Manager can be configured with both host names (epmtest.example.com and epm.example.com), or with just the domain name (for example, example.com). If the EPM System Web server is accessed using a short host name (for example, http://myserver/) or an IP address (for example, http://10.12.1.2/), add these names or IP addresses.

    For Administrators to install, configure, and distribute the add-on to users:

    1. Perform Steps 1 through 3 from the user procedure to install and configure the XUL add-on.

    2. Open the Remote XUL Manager dialog, then select File, then Generate Installer, and then select the domains, optionally customize a message for users, and generate an XPI file.

    3. Distribute the XPI file using any convenient method, such as copying the XPI file to a shared network location, or by email.

    4. Direct users to open Mozilla Firefox, and then drag the XPI file into the Mozilla Firefox window. In some cases, users may need to restart Mozilla Firefox will need to be restarted.

      A standard message or the message you specified is displayed with the list of domains, and then Remote XUL Manager uninstalls itself from the users' machines. EPM Workspace then functions normally.

The correct report is not retrieved when performing Show Reports/Documents.

    Alias and Snapshot: Create a report that contains aliases for member names (for example, 100(Colas)). Then create a data source annotation for this report with Product: Colas and so on. Next, create a snapshot of this report. When performing Show Reports/Documents on that snapshot annotation, the correct result is not retrieved.

    Financial Reporting documents with similar names in same location: Save a snapshot report and a report in the same folder with one report All objects Snapshot. When performing Show Reports/Documents on any object- level annotation in the report, both the snapshot and the report are displayed in the result.

    SAP BW and Oracle Hyperion Financial Management Reports: If you create a data source annotation, the Show Report functionality does not work consistently because the user Point of View (POV) members are not available in the report definition. When creating the data source annotation, if you choose any user POV, even with a default value, the search does not find a match. Only the annotations created for the dimension’s members contained in row/column/page of the report finds the reports using Show Reports functionality.

    Because versions 8.5 and System 9 supports AIX 5.3, customers could assume that this includes all Technology Level (TL) and Maintenance Level (ML) levels. This notice is to inform you that 5.3 ML6 is not supported in versions 8.5 and System 9.

    Action Required: If you have already installed AIX 5.3 ML6, you must upgrade to AIX 5.3 ML7. IBM may also refer to 5.3 ML7 as 5300-07. Alternatively, you may change the kernel mode to 32-bit if using 5.3 ML6. However, Oracle recommends upgrading to AIX 5.3 ML7.

  • 6588245 -- When you set a Pivot Cume data function of “Function of Percent of Row”, the percentage of the grand total is returned.

  • 6583475 -- An unknown error is displayed when an individual member value is dragged into the data layout from an SAP BW alternate hierarchy. This issue is specific to the OLAP Query section in an SAP BW data source and occurs only with an SAP BW GUI 6.4 OLE DB for OLAP (ODBO) driver.

  • 6540929 -- The Report section Microsoft Excel (XLS) export to an existing file does not check whether the destination file (which should be overwritten) is locked. Microsoft Excel (XLS) export does not occur in this case, although the user is asked about the file replacement. This is not an issue for Results or Table sections.

  • 6540605 -- At least one Results or Table column must be present to enable the shortcut menu that contains the option to add or modify a computed item. When no columns are present, select the menu option Actions, and then Add Computed Item... to create a computed item.

  • 6534426 -- You cannot control the Layer or Layering function when one object is an embedded browser. This is a limitation of Windowed controls and non-Windowed controls where Windowed controls, like an embedded browser, cannot go behind non-Windowed controls like shapes or graphics.

  • 6533806 -- Special characters that are not allowed in naming JavaScript's identifier or functions must not be used in column names and control names. For example, white spaces, “ |”, “$”, “” (euro), or “\” (backslashes) (same as half-width Yen and half-width Won). Using such characters in control names is not supported and can cause document rendering useless in EPM Workspace.

  • 6533573 -- Incorrect SQL is generated using outer join ODBC options in OCE. This is a known issue with MSSQL and nested outer joins when the Use Outer Join Escape Syntax option is selected. If nested outer joins are needed, deselect the option.

Production Reporting

  • 12820911 -- The sample program included in the online Help runs correctly with Production Reporting on an Oracle database, but fails when using Production Reporting with ODBC.

  • 12629620 -- Pie and Line charts are not displayed with borders, when Border is set to Yes.

  • 12580312 -- Pie chart legends are displayed in Production Reporting reports when Legend is set to “No”.

  • 6940273 -- If a report includes two master queries from two different DDO data sources, Oracle Hyperion SQR Production Reporting Studio results in UAE when attempting to edit the second master query.

Reporting and Analysis Framework

  • 13818380 -- EPM Workspace uses SMTP port 25 for sending email even if a different port is specified in the registry settings.

  • 13438034 -- Load balancing is not supported for generic jobs across machines in a distributed environment. To resolve this problem, Please use the work-around below until the issue is fixed.

    1. Stop Reporting and Analysis Framework Agent Services.

    2. Go to Repository Database and open V8_PRODUCT table.

    3. Assign the same names for same-type products.

      For example, suppose the system is configured to have two Brio Query products on two servers. If one product is named BrioQuery1, and the other is named BrioQuery2, load balancing fails. To repair load balancing between these two hosts enter the same name for each product in the NAME field in V8_PRODUCT table.

    4. Start Reporting and Analysis Framework Agent Services.

  • 13364976 -- When using SSL, changing from one property tab to another while editing Interactive Reporting document or job properties can replace the Properties dialog contents with a blank area. To resolve this problem, close the Properties dialog, and then reopen it.

  • 12823826 -- The default value of the Reporting and Analysis Framework Cache property “Cache Folders For” is 60. This property specifies the number of seconds to cache folders.

  • 12316913 -- The API method com.sqribe.rm.SessionFactory.getInstance(String account, String password, String rmhostAddress) was replaced with com.sqribe.rm.SessionFactory.getInstance(String cssToken, String gsmHosts, String gsmPorts) in 11.1.2.1. Both functions have the same signature (getInstance(String, String, String)) but different behavior. After upgrading to EPM Workspace, Release 11.1.2.1, applications created prior to Release 11.1.2.1 that use method getInstance(String account, String password, String rmhostAddress) now use the new method, and return java.lang.NumberFormatException. To resolve this problem, use other methods that have different signatures, for example, getInstance(String account, String password, String rmhostAddress, int port).

  • 11695328 -- Administrators may notice a larger virtual memory footprint for the Reporting and Analysis Framework Web Application and possibly other Java components of Oracle Fusion Performance Management, Release 11.1.2.1 as well. If insufficient memory is available on your system, try reducing the maximum heap setting. The optimum heap setting varies based on system usage. For 100 users, for example, a maximum heap setting of 512 MB for the Reporting and Analysis Framework Web application may be sufficient.

  • 9194960 -- If Reporting and Analysis Framework is disabled in the Enabled Products dialog, disable any other products that depend on Reporting and Analysis Framework, such as Explore.

  • 9089790 -- The Job Service Job Limit property works only after you restart Reporting and Analysis Framework.

  • 8875550 -- On Windows platforms, when replicating common Reporting and Analysis Framework services and using the network shared folder for the repository location, run the Oracle Hyperion Reporting and Analysis Framework agent windows service under a user account with sufficient privileges for the network shared folder (not under a Local System account).

  • 7579450 -- To use the WORLD group in Delegated User Management mode, add it to the delegated list. All users and groups are visible to the administrators of this delegated list.

  • 7555645 -- Due to shared resource files between certain features and functions in EPM Workspace, the following languages have English and translated portions in the Administrator screens: Russian, Turkish, Danish and Swedish.

  • 7552741 -- In Korean, a document’s modified time is displayed as a.m. or p.m. on the search result page.

  • 6959959 -- If a security agent with a cookie-based session management mechanism is used, opening Microsoft Office documents from Microsoft Internet Explorer sometimes prompts for credentials. This occurs because Microsoft Office issues an HTTP OPTIONS request when attempting to open documents. This OPTIONS request does not contain the same session-related cookies as requests made from the browser, so the security provider issues the prompt for credentials. Please see http://support.microsoft.com/?scid=kb;en-us;838028 for details about how Microsoft Office and Microsoft Internet Explorer open documents.

    To resolve this issue, reconfigure the security provider by disabling authentication for OPTIONS requests.

Search

  • 13709722 -- The V8_KPS_ACTION_QUEUE table fills rapidly, using all database space.

  • 13256842 -- Microsoft Office 2007 documents (DOCX, XLSX, PPTX file formats) are indexed for Search by Metadata only. Search by document contents for these files is not available in Release 11.1.2.2.00.

  • 13813408 -- “Header,” “Footer” and “Left” chart titles in the “Chart Properties” dialog are disabled for manual editing for Quadrant and Bubble chart types. Title values depend on the current Data Layout selections and are calculated automatically.

  • 13803024 -- In Microsoft Internet Explorer, the dimension browser is displayed in Swedish for Web Analysis reports. To resolve this problem, add English to Microsoft Internet Explorer by selecting Internet Options, then Languages, then Add, and then English (United States)[en-us].

  • 13584595 -- In Oracle Hyperion Enterprise Performance Management Workspace, scrolling is not available in split panels.

  • 9897495 -- Exported Web Analysis reports do not open in Microsoft PowerPoint 2010. To resolve this issue, save the exported file to your hard drive, change its extension to .html and then open it with Microsoft PowerPoint 2010.

  • 9320523 -- Shortcut menu items are truncated when using Oracle Hyperion Web Analysis Studio with Microsoft Windows Vista or Microsoft Windows 7 client operating systems if Microsoft Windows Vista theme or Microsoft Windows 7 theme are set. To resolve this problem, switch to Microsoft Windows Classic theme.

  • 9210933 -- There is a limitation for editing data in reports built against a BSO cube with a Typed Measures enabled outline. It is not possible to edit data if Date or Text Measures members are selected in Dimension Browser.

  • 8527669 -- ARUUtil does not create user preferences when regional settings are Turkish.

  • 6575786 -- Refresh and Refresh All do not work if two pages of a Oracle Hyperion Web Analysis report are imported sequentially. To resolve this issue, use the All Pages option to import multiple report pages.

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 EPM 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.

Location of Web Application Deployment

The location of Web application deployment has changed. All references to this location in the documentation should be updated from:

MIDDLEWARE_HOME/user_projects/epmsystem1/domains/domainName

to:

MIDDLEWARE_HOME/user_projects/domains/EPMSystem/servers/serverName/logs

where serverName is the name of the WebLogic domain.

Location of ODL Logging for Web Applications

The ODL logging location for Web applications has changed. All references in the documentation should be updated from:

MIDDLEWARE_HOME/user_projects/epmsystem1/domains/domainName

to:

MIDDLEWARE_HOME/user_projects/domains/EPMSystem/servers/serverName/logs

where serverName is the name of the WebLogic managed server.

Passing Data Using Streams Instead of Files

The documentation for the “Passing Data Using Streams Instead of Files” property has been updated in the Oracle Hyperion Reporting and Analysis Framework Administrator's Guide as follows:

This property alters the way data is transmitted between services and the Web application.

If yes is selected, servlets retrieve files from services using streamed input and output (I/O) and direct connection instead of temporary file system storage. Data is transferred over a separate socket connection between the Repository Services and the servlets.

If no is selected, data is transferred and stored in a file (or in memory if the data is less than 500 KB) for servlets and the Service Broker.

In general, you should enable this option because streamed I/O is more efficient. If your system has a firewall between the servlets and the services, however, you should disable this option since it will randomly allocate the use of any available port on the service host. With the option disabled, files are sent directly through the Reporting and Analysis service ports already in use instead of creating new socket connections for the file transfer.

Repository Item Names

When entering names for items in the repository such as files and folders, you can use uppercase and lowercase letters and numbers. Spaces cannot be used at the beginning or end of folder names. File and folder names can only use alphanumeric characters and underscores.

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.

Web Analysis

Export Excel Wizard

In Oracle Hyperion Web Analysis Workspace User's Guide, in Step 6 of “Export Excel Wizard,” disregard the sentence “For each selected view, a preview of the exported view is displayed.” This feature is not currently available.

In that same procedure, Step 6, part “a” should state:

View the list of check box items for a page dimension, and then select the box next to each page dimension member to include in the export.

Accessibility Considerations

It is our goal to make Oracle products, services, and supporting documentation accessible to the disabled community.Familyproducts support accessibility features, which are described in the product's Accessibility Guide. The most up-to-date version of this guide can be found in the Oracle Enterprise Performance Management System Documentation Library on the Oracle Technology Network (http://www.oracle.com/technology/documentation/epm.html).
