Cautions

Pyramid 2020.15 includes numerous key upgrades and fixes to existing capabilities.
As such, Pyramid strongly recommends that the new release is tested on a duplicate version of an existing content database repository before any production upgrades are applied. 

Further, a database repository backup should be made before upgrading any production systems and repositories.

New Features

Model

  • Added new IBM DB2 for AS400 connector.
  • Upgraded connection options for Microsoft Multidimensional (OLAP) and Tabular data sources in the Admin Console allowing HTTP access to Analysis Services using MSMDPUMP.dll. It also includes a new "Use Multi Pass Authentication" option to better control on how Pyramid authenticates to these data sources
  • Added a new  ODBC 'Direct Query' connector - allowing users to query ODBC sources directly. (Note this will only work on ODBC data sources that are fully ANSI SQL compliant).

Discover

  • Upgraded accounting grid styles to support background colors.
