Shape the future of IBM!

We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:

Post your ideas

Post ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,

  1. Post an idea

  2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you

  3. Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea

Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests

The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The product management team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.

Receive notification on the decision

Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

Status Not under consideration

Data got incorrectly calculated / underfed due to a dimension structure change, either:

  1. An element moved from another hierarchy to a hierarchy/rollup where feeders pointed to.

  2. A new element added to a hierarchy/rollup where feeders pointed to.

The rules and feeders are working 100% if nothing has changed on the dimension, but unfortunately the dimension is a slowly changing dimension, if requiring to do CubeProcessFeeders on every cube when a new element added to the dimension is not realistic.

    Changed status to Not under consideration. Allowing consolidations without feeders is a longer term objective.

    In a quick test I was able to add a new member as a child of a consolidation, add data to the cells that was created by adding the new member, and validate that feeders were still working correctly to consolidate data.

    We will need more detail about the specific case where this behaviour can be reproduced. Even better would

    1 - Version of TM1 Server/Planning Analytics?

    2 - How is the new member being added to the dimension (hierarchy). With a Ti process? If so, which TI function? When I tested I simple created a new member as the child of a consolidation in the Architect dimension editor.

    3 - ForceReevaluationOfFedCells parameter setting?

    Specific steps or a testcase that demonstrates this issue would be appreciated.
