Release Date: 22 February 2020
OneCloud will be making platform enhancements, Saturday, February 22, 2020, from 1 pm to 3 pm EST. There will be no downtime for this release.
GroundRunner MSI Installer for Windows
OneCloud now offers an MSI installer for GroundRunners being deployed on Windows. The installer requires .NET 3.5 or greater. If the .NET prerequisites are not met, then the command line installation is still available.
The new Convert to Cross-Tab Command has been added to support converting Essbase MDX query tuple outputs to a proper cross-tab report. This Command is especially useful when loading Essbase data to Workiva WDesk.
Oracle EPM Utilities
The New Oracle EPM Utilities BizApp provides Commands that are able to be used across various on-premises and cloud-based Oracle EPM applications. The Convert ASO to Tabular Command has been moved from the Oracle PCMCS BizApp to this new BizApp. A new Convert CSV to Native Essbase Command has been introduced. This Command will generate a file in the Native Essbase load format. Native Essbase format is an efficient mechanism to load large volumes of data to Oracle EPM applications such as Oracle (E)PBCS that utilize Essbase as the underlying data repository.
The OneCloud Knowledge Base refresh is now complete and has been completely updated to reflect the new OneCloud Studio interface and expanded product functionality.
