This feature is limited to the Hyperion Shared Services registry database as accessed via reg.properties.

  • Profiles were added to include: Hyperion1112_FDM, Hyperion1112_HDM, Hyperion1112_HPC, Hyperion1112_HPS, and Hyperion1112_HSF.

  • Features were added in RDA 8.03 to the following profiles: Hyperion1112_EAS, Hyperion1112_EPM, Hyperion1112_HFM, Hyperion1112_HIR, Hyperion1112_HPC, Hyperion1112_HSS HCVE EPM Server and EPM Client Tools Improvements.

An early release of 'Hyperion' and 'BI' menus in Diagnostic Assistant is bundled with RDA 8.03. Explore these new features by

  • Navigating into an RDA 8.03 unzipped home on Microsoft Windows (or Unix/Linux)
