New Features in this Release:


Defects Fixed in this Release:

  • 30859186 - In Template Export for Management Ledger applications, the name of the Essbase Cluster used by the application is no longer exported in the template.  This allows an application to more easily be imported into a new environment with a different Essbase Cluster name, which may be important for forward migrations, e.g. to Profitability and Cost Management 11.2.x, or to Profitability and Cost Management Cloud.
  • 31486427 - When running Standard Profitability calculations for multiple POVs concurrently, sometimes the calculation scripts for one of the POVs could execute out of order, causing wrong or missing calculated results.  Calculation scripts for concurrent POV calculations will always run in the correct order now.
