CAST Database Extractor
The CAST Database Extractor now supports:
- (by reference) the extraction of schemas on Oracle 18c and above in line with Oracle's updated release cycle, however the extractor will handle the schemas as Oracle 12c schemas and no new syntax or features introduced in these newer releases is supported.
- Case sensitive passwords (introduced in Oracle 12c R2).
SAP / ABAP rules
"CX_ROOT" should not be used in TRY .. CATCH.. ENDTRY block (8412)
The parent technical criterion for this rule was incorrectly set to "61020: Programming Practices - Modularity and OO Encapsulation Conformity", but it has been changed to "61014: Programming Practices - Error and Exception Handling". See also Changes in results post upgrade - 8.3.16.
Dynamic Links rule files
Dynamic Links rule files now function with SAP BusinessObjects and SAP PowerBuilder analysis results.
Changes to the structure of the Dashboard and Analysis Services schemas
Some changes have been made to the structure of the Dashboard and Analysis Service schemas to reduce the potential size of the Dashboard Service schema tables DSS_LINKS and DSS_LINK_INFO:
FP_LINK_INFO table (new)
Data (links with IDs from 11000 to 110006) related to CAST Transaction Configuration Center datafunctions and transactions that was previously stored in these two tables will now be stored in a new table called FP_LINK_INFO. This table now contains all object details of transactions/datafunctions. It has exactly the same structure as DSS_LINK_INFO:
|SNAPSHOT_ID||the snapshot id|
|PREVIOUS_OBJECT_ID||datafunction or transaction|
|LINK_TYPE_ID||between 11000 and 11006|
|NEXT_OBJECT_ID||detail object of a transaction/datafunction|
Impact on Analysis Services schema
Details of transactions and data functions are now sent to a new table called DSS_FPLINKS instead of previously DSS_LINKS.
Transfer from Analysis to Dashboard Service schema
The links from local database from DSS_FPLINKS are sent to central Database via DSS_IN_FPLINKS instead of previously DSS_IN_LINKS
finally the information related to details of transactions and data function are stored in FP_LINK_INFO instead of previously DSS_LINK_INFO.
when migrating to this version, all occurrence of link_type_id between 11000 and 11006 will be
- Moved from DSS_LINK_INFO to FP_LINK_INFO
- Removed from both DSS_LINK_INFO and DSS_LINKS
