Release Features

JIRA ID Feature Description Before & After Additional Information


[Check Tool] RBP permission check for Advanced Reporting reports

You can now verify whether a user has the permissions required for generating an Advanced Reporting report, by using the "Role-based permissions for Online Report Designer are enabled" check in "Check Tool".

The check helps you identify the issues that can occur if a user has inadequate role-based permissions. The check generates an error when a user does not have field level permissions for some fields included in the report, or the user does not have permissions to access data from a module on which the report is built.

Before: The check tool was previously only available for Detailed Reporting Data Source.

After: The RBP check tool has been enhanced to cover both Detailed Reporting & Advanced Reporting Data Source.

Ad Hoc Reporting Guardrails by Cell Level

We are applying guardrails to the reporting tools with an intent to optimize system performance.

In Q4 2019, an optimal limit will be applied on the maximum number of cells that a report can retrieve. These guardrails will be rolled out in a phased manner and customers will be notified in advance of any guardrail being put in place.

There will be different phases of the guardrails rolled out in Q4 2019 and Q1 2020.

Ad Hoc Reporting Guardrails are introduced to ensure that there is fair use of Resources and all customers can run their reports.
