Defects Fixed in this Release

The following are the noteworthy defects fixed in this release:

  • 14133036 -- In Provider Services, the API function iessmemberselection.getdimensionudas( ) is limited to retrieving no more than 100 UDAs.

  • 14757358 -- When Oracle Essbase has been configured to use SSL, both secure and clear connections will display in Oracle Hyperion Smart View for Office under “Shared Connections.”

  • 14165988 -- In Smart View, when trying to export rows, if you try to export more than a thousand rows you may receive an error: Essbase error (1020011): Maximum number of rows [1000] exceeded

  • 14679591, 14642332 -- In Oracle Hyperion Smart View for Office, when displaying servers, Oracle Hyperion Financial Management server clusters may be listed with Essbase server clusters, instead of separately.

Known Issues

The following issues are the noteworthy known issues of this release.

  • 8674073 -- In Smart Slice dimensions that contain more than 5000 members, not all members will be displayed when users zoom in on the dimension. To use Smart Slices on dimensions with more than 5000 members, in the file, located in EPM_ORACLE_INSTANCE\bin, set the property service.olap.dataQuery.grid.maxRows=0 and increase maximum heap size to 512M. Restart Provider Services.

  • 11655006 -- Ensure that you use the correct syntax to specify secure mode. When you set the OLAP_NAME to cluster URL, use the values “yes” or “no” to specify whether you want to use secure mode, for example, OLAP_SERVER=http://<servername>:<port>aps/Essbase?ClusterName=Win32Cluster-1&SecureMode=yes

    All other values (for example, SecureMode=true or SecureMode=false) are invalid and are interpreted by Provider Services as SecureMode=no.

    If you use invalid syntax, no error message is generated, nor is the connection halted. Therefore, if you were to enter SecureMode=true to specify secure communication, it would be interpreted as SecureMode=no, and the connection would be made successfully but not in secure mode.

  • 11898620 -- When you use the Essbase cluster URL in a Java API client program running in 3-tier APS mode, the Provider Services host used to resolve the Essbase cluster URL is the Provider Services host name to which the client is connected in the 3-tier mode; the Provider Services host name within the Essbase Cluster URL is not used. These two references to Provider Services hosts are usually same. When you use the Essbase cluster URL in a Java API client program running in embedded 2-tier mode, then the Provider Services host used to resolve the Essbase cluster URL is the Oracle Hyperion Provider Services host name within the Oracle Essbase cluster URL.
