Technical Release Notes

A comprehensive list of all technical information regarding new releases. Includes warnings, which usually have implications on existing models and settings, as well as general technical information.

6.3

LTS - Major

Warnings:

  • ACCESS RIGHTS CHANGE - API restriction - Only project admins have full access to the shared workspace. This has always been possible only via API, never through the front end. - LOW

  • NUMBER CHANGE - Change in system table “MONTH_LAST_DAY” - This change will fix values for the last day of December but will not apply automatically on deploy. It affects only new projects (excluding duplicate and import). To fix an existing project, change its time dimension by shrinking or expanding the horizon. - LOW

General Information:

  • There has been an update regarding the available OpenId Connect client authentication types. A new guide has been created to describe the steps needed to use this authentication type, and the general OIDC configuration page has been updated: oAuth 2.0 with Private Key JWT Client Authentication & 6.3.0 OpenID Connect Configuration.

  • The number formatting in the node data preview is now synchronized with the user language setting. Thus, numbers will be displayed as: 100.000,00 in German and 100,000.00 in English, matching the rest of the application.


6.2

Major

Warnings:

  • DATA LOSS - Breaks compatibility with existing H2 databases - We upgraded H2 from version 1.4.200 to 2.2.224. These versions are not compatible. Users must migrate data manually before the application upgrade to avoid data loss. Note: From this release onwards, H2 is not supported across application upgrades, which may cause data loss if used for permanent storage. - TRIVIAL

  • CONFIGURATION CHANGE - Removal of feature flag featureFlags.job.pathFolderSystemExportedFiles - The feature flag ‘featureFlags.job.pathFolderSystemExportedFiles’ has been removed and replaced by the config YAML configuration value 'systemFlags.tempFileRootDirectory'. If a value was set for the removed feature flag, it must now be manually moved to the new setting. No automatic migration will occur. - TRIVIAL

  • ASSUMPTION GROUP CREATION - New assumption group called 'Szenario-Annahme' might appear in workspaces - Some workspaces had scenario assumptions active but not visible in the scenario manager. After deployment, such workspaces will display a new group with all previously invisible scenario assumptions. - TRIVIAL


6.1.4

Minor

Warnings:

  • NUMBER CHANGE - ROLLFORWARD_ADVANCED fix for gaps in input data when using an aging Level - There is a chance that numbers will change from ROLLFORWARD_ADVANCED calculations when using an aging Level where an input data Level value key does not exist within a specific rollforward iteration’s data after shifting. - HIGH


6.1.2

Minor

General Information:

  • Need to update the public-facing OIDC documentation regarding a new config value valsightOpenIdConnectProperties → userInfoEndpointScopes. See the internal documentation for details on OpenID Connect Configuration.

  • Replace Mail Server with Mail Server Configuration


6.0.0

LTS - Major Release

Warnings

  • EXCEL FORMAT CHANGE - Removed AUTO_DIM 1.0 - This issue removed support for modifying dimensions via data-source upload. Clients need to modify files that had the '= DIM[Dim,Level,1]' tags in them, or they will end up with DS columns with that name. - MEDIUM

  • BREAKS CALCULATIONS - DATA function break - This issue moves all dimension tables that were in user data sources into the system data source. This breaks DATA functions that used dimension tables. Users will need to manually adjust the DATA function to the System data source. Chance of occurring: very low. - LOW

  • NUMBER CHANGE - Potential number change - DataFrameKeyEntry equals method can return false when keys are equal. Chance of occurring: basically none. - LOW

  • CONFIGURATION CHANGE - SSO config.yml change - Replaced the functionality introduced in ES-11511: Open ID connect group sync prefix to allow for multiple prefix values for both OpenID connect and SAML. This involved changing the config.yaml configuration key for the functionality:

    • Old configuration key: spring → security → oauth2 → client → registration → openIdConnect → valsightOpenIdConnectProperties → requiredGroupNamePrefix

    • New configuration key: loginMethodConfigurations → commonSSOOptions → requiredGroupNamePrefixes

    • Any environment configured to use the old OpenId group name prefix filter will be required to reconfigure to use the new SSO wide group name prefixes filter. Note the old configuration key was a single string value while the new configuration key is a list. - MEDIUM

  • NUMBER CHANGE - Potential number change with OData scenario exports - OData exports of scenarios were not applying the overridden values of variables. Any existing OData export will now be changed to reflect their influence on node results. - HIGH

  • FILE DELETION - All job results are purged, regardless of the purge settings - All existing job result files need to be deleted because we changed the file format. - LOW

  • FUNCTION RENAME - Renamed the ROLLFORWARD functions - The existing ROLLFORWARD function is renamed to ROLLFORWARD_BASIC. The existing ROLLFORWARD_MUL function is renamed to ROLLFORWARD_MUL_BASIC. Upgrading to 6.0 requires modifying any node operations that contain the old names of the above functions to use the new ones. A new function named ROLLFORWARD that has different parameters and logic from the ROLLFORWARD_BASIC has been introduced. - HIGH
