Fixed & patched after release

Jedox OLAP Server & Client Libraries

  • The 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.
  • Scheduled Backups of large databases will reach a timeout after 20 minutes (#40440)
    • Workaround: exclude CSV files from the generation of the backup or increase the timeout setting.
  • Spacer elements are incorrectly displayed in views when an attribute or alias is used. (#40925)

Jedox Excel Add-In & Jedox Office Add-In

  • Pasting a subset with a long formula across several rows and columns results in an error message due to technical restrictions from Microsoft Excel.
    • Workaround: Jedox Excel Add-in inserts the formula in the first cell of the selected range so that it can be used to manually create an array in the desired range. (44019)
  • Subset can't be pasted in excel if any filter formula exceeds 254 characters. An error results and the subset formula will be pasted as text only. (44555)
  • In Excel for Office 365, pasting a subset into a single cell and then expanding it over a range of cells as an array doesn’t work due to a recent change in Excel functionality, which inserts an @ into formulas. Pasting the subset directly into a range of cells does work. (44557)
    • Workaround: after expanding the cell range, remove the @ operator manually from the formula and press CTRL-SHIFT-ENTER.
  • 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
  • In some scenarios, a Lost UI error message is displayed in the log. This error message has no impact on the performance. (#42343)
  • Incorrect display of the Subset Editor for some display settings. (#39890)
    • Workaround: Enable the Optimize for compatibility option in Excel > Display Settings.
  • The Element Picker encounters display issues when using the arrows to remove elements from a selection. (#43332)

Jedox Web

  • When a cube has the same name as its database, and the cube is selected in Modeler, the database properties open. (45074)
  • Views created before 2020.1 and pasted into a spreadsheet show red triangle flag (indicating change to view), even when no changes were made. (44540)
  • Undo not working in some instances with stored views selected from the Stored View combobox. (44575)
  • In Designer, expanding a view with 3 column and 3 row dimensions results in #VALUE! error. (44712)
  • Pictures of all types (png, jpg, gif) and dynamic charts in spreadsheets are not exported to HTML. (44637)
  • For Button form elements, “No color” option in color picker does not work as expected. (43539)
  • File icons do not appear in General tab of Properties dialog. (44668)
  • When navigation tree is collapsed and the main window is resized, and empty shaded space (container) is revealed. (43452)
  • Designer: if a spreadsheet contains a label AND either a ComboBox with a subset as its source OR a DatePicker, and the spreadsheet is exported as XLSX, the label data is lost upon import into Jedox Web. (43796)
  • In navigation tree in Designer: files cannot be dragged into the parent folder; copying and pasting a file into parent folder results in error message; copied files don’t appear immediately in hierarchy. (43525, 43603)
  • Designer: when dimensions of the file selector are larger than the file thumbnail icon, the keyboard delete function does not work. (43600)
  • When axis labels in charts are wrapped to multiple lines, they appear in PDFs as a single line and partially overlap. (44988)
  • Reports exported from Jedox Web with styles are only applied properly on the first sheet in reports that were exported from Jedox Web. (44647)
  • In Administration, multiple tabs for the same user, group, and role can be opened at once. (44528)
  • When some dialogs are minimized, the content appears truncated. (43652, 43987, 44020)
  • Form element inserts “Root” element instead of an empty string when a row is inserted between values in the spreadsheet. (44570)
  • In Jedox Views, the Hide Headers option in the Paste View>Option dialog doesn’t work in some scenarios. (44680, 44672)
  • 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 recursive named range (i.e. named range that refers to itself), Spreadsheet Server can become unstable (#16837)
  • In some scenarios, a popup regarding conversion of workbooks is shown when opening a workbook, even though it was already saved in the current version (#16423)

  • Deleting duplicate stored subsets with case sensitive name deletes both stored subsets. (#40858)
  • In Rule Editor, when only one element is used (both in 'Target' and 'Source' panels) it is not possible to preselect it. (#41106)
  • When searching for elements in dimensions with more than one million elements or with deep nesting, the search sometimes fails with an error message. (#41045)
  • Searching in a nested dimension in Modeler causes the following OLAP error: Error while loading elements. (#41135)
  • Deeply nested dimensions can trigger an error in Subset Editor. (#41055)
  • In Report Designer, the borders of unlocked cells are sometimes not shown in User Mode. (#41043)
  • Enabling Designer Preview on a workbook with DynaRanges or the preview option in Paste View logs a workbook load message in core.log. No other effect. (#41192)

  • In System cubes, when switching from Rules to Properties tab, an error in the browser console can occur. (#42285)
  • In some scenarios, Dynamic styles are incorrectly displayed in a report with unlocked cells. (#42336)
  • Importing a workbook that has the same name as an existing one via drag & drop takes a long time if you opt out of replacing the existing document. (#42296)
  • Using a comma in the name of a stored subset can cause issues when trying to detach a view that uses that subset. (#42322)
  • HideRow inside a DynaRange does not work in User Mode. Instead it shows the actual "TRUE" instead of hiding the row. (#42178)

  • The order of cube dimensions listed in the Rule Editor is not correct in all scenarios. (#43169)

Jedox Integrator & Integrator Manager UI
