Jedox OLAP Server & Client Libraries

  • Calculation of aggregations where the weight of all child elements is set to 0 takes too long (#17878)
  • The new database access rights from cube #_GROUP_DATABASE_DATA are not yet fully utilized in Jedox Web (#18919)
    • Workaround: it is recommended not to define access to internal databases (fgrp* / rgrp*) via this cube currently.
  • In “Static Marker Driven Engine” (not used by default), Markers are not refreshed when dimension that is used in Marker is changed (#13752)
    • Workaround: Switch to new “Reduced Marker Cleaning” Engine or use new API function /database/rebuild_markers
  • When multiple databases of type “system” are attempted to be loaded, Olap Server can become unstable (#37609) *
  • When loading databases for the first time in 2018.2, there could be error message printed to olap_server.log: “[system] value counter mismatch in cube ‘userdata_h1’, updating the value counter” (#37505)*
    • Workaround: Error message is information only, causes no other issues.
  • After applying Windows 10 update 1803, jedox license is deleted / not shown anymore (#37603)
    • Workaround: Re-activate your license via license manager
  • When creating new element below some parent element, the consolidation factors of all siblings of the new element are set to zero (37619)*
    • Workaround: Manually set consolidation factors of the siblings as before
  • In Modeler, elements are displayed with (wrong) consolidation factor of zero (37619)*
    • Workaround: Visual problem in modeler, not affecting calcualations

Jedox Excel Add-In & Jedox Office Add-In

  • Creating Views in existing workbooks sometimes changes colors in previously formatted cells due to limitations of the Excel color table (#16502)
  • After update, some connections created in older Jedox versions are not working correctly anymore because the security token is lost (#37676)*
    • Workaround: Edit connection in connection wizard and set security token of the server manually
  • Connection test in connection wizard fails when security token is not set (#37386)*
    • Connection is working nevertheless for most dialogs except Web related dialogs (e.g. Modeler, Publish, etc.)
  • When using Excel Add-In on Windows 10 build 1709 on a high resolution display, element selectors in paste view are grey and show no content (#37212)
    • Workaround: Open any saved xlsx file containing a saved view and use “Edit View”
    • Fix: Update to latest Windows 10 release (verified with Windows 10 build 1803)
  • After minimizing and maximizing modeler again, the window is not rendered correctly (#37576)
    • Resize / move / click into window to force rendering
  • When pasting a hostname in connection wizard, the save button is not enabled (#37579)*
    • Workaround: Type manually into the textbox for hostname to enable save button
  • Success charts in xlsx files exported from Jedox Web are not properly shown when directly opened via double clicking the xlsx file
    • Workaround: Open excel and use menu “File” – “Open” to open the xlsx file

Jedox Web

  • On some longer mathematical calculation formulas, the order of calculation is not correct (#16374)
    • Workaround: enforce calculation order by setting brackets in the formula
  • When creating two reverse DynaRanges that are aligned next to each other, expansion doesn’t work correctly (#19534)
  • When using a recurcsive named range (i.e. named range that refers to itself), Spreadsheet Server can become unstable (#16837)
  • If the data source for a chart is dynamic (e.g. based on @variables), the chart may not initialize with correct settings and formatting in all cases (#21902)
    • Workaround: manually define the options for data structure in “Source Data” dialog
  • On large and highly nested dimensions, load of “Paste Elements” dialog is slow (#26220)
  • When using references for parts of PALO.ESELECT() formula, the element picker overwrites references with static values when changing the element selection (#26266)
  • When expanding / collapsing the POV control while multiple model reports are opened, the positioning of the controls doesn’t work correctly (#29431)
  • Cell borders of merged cells are not exported to PDF when the print area touches merged cell area
    • Workaround: Increase print area to cover merged cells completely
  • In Views with hidden header dimension(s) creating a hold fails with error message (#35665)
  • Pasting a view on attribute cubes with no dimension in rows or columns fails (#36074)
  • When selecting whole spreadsheet in left upper corner and setting some format on rows, on saving report size increases and report performance gets worse (#37260)
    • Workaround: Avoid setting formats when whole spreadsheet is selected, use formatting only for selected areas / columns /rows
  • After attempting to paste a corrupted / invalid view in an analyzer report, all newly created analyzer reports from same user are showing wrong view initially (#35193)
  • When editing an existing “Year & Month” range of an attribute domain, the dialog to modify doesn’t work correctly in Firefox (#37629)

    • Workaround: Move all exisiting backup folders called “upgrade_*” outside your jedox installation directory and restart setup
  • During installation setup checks for presence of Visual C++ Runtime 2017, which on some systems can lead to a noticable delay when trying to proceed from dialog to setup interfaces and ports (#37414)

  • If the Windows operating system isn’t up to date, installation of the Visual C++ runtime during Jedox setup sometimes fails or hangs
    • Make sure that all Windows updates are installed before executing setup.
