Renaming the element name – SwapAliasWithPrincipalName
In Realtime Scenarios, sometimes we get the requirement to correct/update the Principal element name(s) in a Dimension. This would relatively be easy if the dimension is being used in one cube. In case where the dimension is used in multiple cubes, updating element name(s) without affecting the data of all the cubes, is a bit challenging. Either we export data of the cube and change the element name(s), then import the data and validate cube before and after the element change. Or deploy the Bedrock process, which requires the reboot of Instance.
REST stands for REpresentational State Transfer. It is web standard-based architecture and uses HTTP Protocol. TM1 REST API is a type of web service which can be used to perform create, read, update, and delete operations on TM1 objects or data. Therefore, we can maintain a TM1 model, manage TI processes, chores, dimensions and query data that is stored in the model.
I recently came across a problem statement at a client site and thought it would make good content to share for my blog article so without further ado here it goes...
Gone days, where we had no control/alerts mechanism on the TM1 database, CPU/memory it consumes, react at the nick of the moment before TM1 server crashes.
IBM has identified a defect within the code introduced in TM1 10.2.2 Fixpack 7, part of all other releases before 2.0.9. This defect causes data loss within the cubes even after performing SaveDataAll activity with in TM1 server. Let us get into the details.
IBM has been recommending its users to move to Planning Analytics for Excel (PAX) from TM1 Perspective and/or from TM1 Web. This blog is dedicated to clients who have either recently adopted PAX or contemplating too and sharing steps on how to trace/watch TI process status while running process using Planning Analytics for Excel.
This blog broaches all steps on how to install IBM Secure Gateway Client.
As you plan to adopt IBM Planning Analytics cloud, it’s important to understand what it takes. This blog highlights areas you will be involved-in when you upgrade from on-premise TM1 10.x.x to Planning Analytics on Cloud.
