Calculate Model

Runs the calculation on a given point of view in a selected cube. This API supports batch calculation with multiple POVs.

This is an asynchronous call, so use the job status URI to determine whether the operation is complete.

This API is version v3.

Before using the REST resources, you must understand how to access the REST resources and other important concepts. See Implementation Best Practices for EPM Cloud REST APIs. Using this REST API requires prerequisites. See Prerequisites.

The following table summarizes the client request parameters specific to this job

Table 15-3 Parameters

Name Description Type Required Default
jobType Calculation Payload Yes None

Name of the job

Example: "Calculation"

Payload Yes None

Delimiter used in POV values

Example: "povDelimiter":":"

Payload Yes :: (Double Colon)

Name of the POV to calculate. You can pass one or more POVs separated by a comma (,).

Example: "sourcePOVName":"FY16:May:Actual:Working"

Payload Yes None

Name of the model to calculate

Example: "modelName":"10 Actuals Allocation Process"

Payload Yes None


  • If executionType=ALL_RULES, rule related parameters are not required.

  • If executionType=SINGLE_RULE |RUN_FROM_RULE|STOP_AFTER_RULE, then provide ruleName only.

  • If executionType=RULESET_SUBSET, then provide values for rulesetSeqNumStart and rulesetSeqNumEnd.

Example: "executionType":"ALL_RULES"

Payload Yes None

Name of the single rule to run

Example: "ruleName":"Utlities Expense Adjustment"

Payload No None

Sequence number of the first rule in the rule set to run

Example: "rulesetSeqNumStart:1"

Payload No None

Sequence number of the last rule in the rule set to run

Example: "rulesetSeqNumStart:10"

Payload No None

(True | False) Specifies whether to clear existing calculations

Example: "clearCalculatedData":"true",

Payload No False

(True | False) Specifies whether to run calculations

Example: "executeCalculations":"true"

Payload No False

(True | False) Specifies whether to optimize the calculation process for reporting

When running multiple concurrent calculation jobs, set optimizeReporting=true for all jobs. Only the last job to complete will perform the aggregation, which avoids redundant processing and prevents running jobs from slowing down.

Set optimizeReporting=false only when necessary to save processing time; for example, when running a single rule or a sequential series of several POVs.

Example: "optimizeForReporting":"false",

Payload No False

(True | False) Specifies whether to generate debug scripts

Example: "captureDebugScripts":"false"

Payload No False

Comment to describe the job

Payload No None

Sample Payload:

        "modelName":"10 Actuals Allocation Process",
