New Features



Query engine

  • New query optimization switches added in Data Discovery under the Query tab > Query Options dropdown:
    • Total Optimization - Similar to the Optimize button, this optimization switch employs the NONEMPTY function but does so only within the total operation when it is used in a query.
      Should be used when totaling performance is poor.
    • Context Heuristics - This will inject the EXISTING MDX function explicitly into the query as needed. Highly nested queries with sibling hierarchies on a specific axis (column or row) can see dramatic improvements in performance.
    • Measure Optimization - Improve query performance when using multiple hierarchies, not from the same dimension and Measures on Columns/Rows.
  • Significant improvements in large payload handling between client and server


  • PAS content imports without query pre-checking
  • An option to enable the Query PreCheck was added to the ProClarity BBK Importer.

Admin console

  • New switches added under the Setting tab > Networking > Authentication:
    • Lazy Groups Lookup - Improved login performance by getting users’ active directory groups.
    • Use Directory Cache - Improved login performance by using server to cache settings
    • Support Nested Groups - Improve login performance by disabling support for nested groups if not needed.
  • Server status checks are now off by default.
  • IP Resolution performance improved.
  • New switch for Community function
