Description

When you click the link to a column profile in the
Related Assets
section of the business term, the Analyst tool displays the
Discovery
workspace but does not display the column profile.

Discovery
workspace, right-click on a column name in the profile summary view to link the profile to a business term instead of providing a link from the details view of the profile.

442702
When you create PowerCenter Repository Service with MS Windows Latin 1 (ANSI) superset of Latin1 codepage and you try to export the mapping specification to the PowerCenter repository, the repository connection fails.
Workaround: Create the PowerCenter Repository Service with UTF-8 codepage to export the mapping specification to the PowerCenter repository.

  6. Check the
    Data Preview
    pane.

When you open the version history for a specific run, inconsistent version metadata appears. Error occurs when you open a version of the scorecard and restore the scorecard to a previous version or when you edit the scorecard.
439899
The Analyst tool returns incorrect results when you test a rule specification that contains a mapplet that you generated from another rule specification. The issue arises when the mapplet that you generated reads another mapplet in the Model repository.

439705
You receive a null pointer exception when you try to add a JSON or XML profile results to an existing relational scorecard.
439453
The Analyst tool returns incorrect results when you test a rule specification that contains a mapplet that you generated from another rule specification. The issue arises when the rule specification that generated the mapplet contains a rule set with the same name as a mapplet in the Model repository.
Workaround: Log out of the Analyst tool and log back in. Ignore any error message that the Analyst tool displays.
439258
The Analyst tool might display an error message when you open a rule specification that contains a mapplet that you generated from another rule specification. The issue arises if you generate another version of the mapplet after you added the mapplet to the rule specification in the same Analyst tool session.
Workaround: Log out of the Analyst tool and log back in. Ignore any error message that the Analyst tool displays.
439254
You cannot create a glossary in version 10.0 if the Model Repository Service that you upgraded from a previous version did not contain Business Glossary content earlier.
Workaround: After you upgrade the Model Repository Service to version 10.0 run the upgradeRepository command line program.
439182
When you copy a chain of linked rule statements to another rule set in a rule specification, you cannot generate a mapplet from the rule specification. The issue arises when you embed a mapplet in the second rule statement or a subsequent rule statement in the chain. You can encounter the issue in the following cases:
  • You copy the chain of rule statements to a rule set in the same rule specification or in another rule specification.
  • You copy a rule set that contains the chain of rule statements to another location in the same rule specification or to another rule specification.

When a Data Integration Service grid contains Windows nodes and the service is configured to run jobs in separate remote processes, the Add Flat File wizard stops responding if the Data Integration Service cannot access the flat file cache directory. The wizard should display an error message indicating that the flat file cache directory is not accessible.
Workaround: If the Analyst Service and the Data Integration Service run on different nodes, configure the flat file directory to use a shared directory.
437273
You cannot use the Find and Replace options in an exception record task to replace all instances of an integer in a data column with another integer.

When you try to find and replace reference table values with a value that is not valid, the Analyst tool returns an incorrect error message. The error message states that the reference table does not contain the search value that you specify. The issue arises when the replacement value that you specify uses a precision that is too high for the reference data column.
418855
The Analyst tool cannot export a mapping specification to Excel on a domain that uses Kerberos authentication.
418133
You cannot create a column profile when one of the columns in the data source is in the UTF-8 format.
413589
The voting task in the Developer tool is for internal use only. The Developer tool does not show a warning when a user tries to configure the voting task properties in the Developer tool.
