Smart View 188.8.131.52 bugs
In my previous post, I had discussed about some of the intricacies associated with Smart View 184.108.40.206 and some workaround to avoid the same. There is an update on the first two (Decompression Failed error & Search functionality error), that is, Oracle has identified these errors as bugs.
Bug 11846992 – Decompression Failed – Invalid Pointer Error On Refresh after Session Timeout.
It will be really good if Oracle finds out a resolution to this error message. All users working with Smart View surely know the pain of receiving this error on regular basis.
Anyhow, there seems to be a yet another workaround for this error which appears to be more potential than the rest. We are required to update following entry as true in essbase.properties file:
Bug 12913916 - Member search functionality error
As discussed earlier, the workaround is to enable Alias table, fetch the required member and then turn-off the Alias table ( it will be rather good to use alias names in data-sheet to avoid the pain of changing over Alias tables)
Recently, I also came across an error where a user gets a pop-up when open MS PowerPoint, with the message:
SHAPE.TAGS : INVALID REQUEST. PRESENTATION CANNOT BE MODIFIED
It appears some user had already registered it with Oracle and they have identified it as yet another bug.
Bug 12418027: SMART VIEW ERROR : SHAPE.TAGS : INVALID REQUEST. PRESENTATION CANNOT BE MODIFIED
I just hope, Oracle do find out a solution to these errors and release some patch soon. Anyhow you can surely log a SR with Oracle to ask for an intermediate solution for your specific environment before any formal release is carried out.
Keep you posted !!
