We have successfully made platform enhancements on Saturday, November 14th, 2020, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. PST.
Version settings as production data:
The following Versions settings have became production data:
Model administrators can now change these settings in Deployed mode, meaning an ALM sync to update them regularly is no longer required. This update enables more efficient model management and greater flexibility when setting up spoke models using ALM. This feature also allows for greater contextualization for each spoke model and further business process automation.
What hasn't changed after this release?
Existing version settings will remain as is
Current, Actual, and Formula settings will remain as structural data
What has changed after this release?
Model administrators will be able to update Switchover, Edit From, Edit To, and Notes in Deployed Mode
These settings will not be changed during model syncs
Changes in the content of these fields will not be reflected in an ALM sync diff report
Model administrators can change the settings via:
Manual input in the UI
File import into version settings
Module import into version settings
When importing into version settings grid, Current, Actual, or Formula will be ignored as they continue to be structural data
Check out the best practices we recommend you to follow, to make the most of this new capability.
Module names displayed in columns:
We’ve also added a Module Name column to blueprint view and the line items tab in Modules, located at the end of the grid. This is automatically populated with the module name. You can use this information to filter and lookup the line's module name once you have exported data to a third-party application.
When more than one Import Data Sources are updated, duplicate columns are displayed in the Import data sources changed table of the Comparison Report.
In the Comparison Report, incorrect view names are displayed in the Name column of the Saved views changed table.
For large history logs, some model history may be missing from the History report, or the report may display an error.
When you synchronize an existing ALM model, the Current Period is unset in the deployed model.
If you have access to over 5000 models, including archived models, then an import may fail to locate the required model, and display an error, "Failed to locate model..."
If you click Revert to Last Revision for a revision tag created before August 8th 2020, then unexpected changes may be made to fiscal year labels. You can synchronize to restore the labels to the target.
As a user with read-only access to grid cells, you can paste data into those cells.
