Planning – setting the cell retrieval threshold and interesting hack

If you have been working with planning then no doubt you have experienced the web application JVM crashing at some point which can be caused by a number of different factors, the usual likely candidates are large forms and maybe the most deadly of all is ad-hoc analysis.

When a large form or ad-hoc retrieval is run then there is a possibility that an out of memory error may occur in the JVM, the common errors to be generated in the logs are:

Planning 11.1.2.3.500 and Smart View

Just a quick update from me which I was going to write when PSU 11.1.2.3.500 was released but I totally forgot, recently I have heard about this issue a couple of times so I thought I might as well post it in case it happens to anybody else.

When I first patched an environment with .500 everything looked good, well that was until I tested out a planning form in Smart View.

Running EAS web console using different Java versions

Recently there was an OTN thread about invoking the EAS web console using different Java versions and it is a question that crops up time and time again.

11.1.2.3.500 Sample Planning application and more

I have always found the sample application that comes with planning to be a bit of a disappointment and it does not really showcase planning functionality very well, there is not much information on what it is about and it has not been updated since the early days of version 9 plus you have to go through the cumbersome process of creating, initialising and then loading the data.

EPM patch 11.1.2.3.500 has landed

Finally after a long wait EPM 11.1.2.3.500 has arrived and the patch comes in a bundled 1.8GB download or as Oracle likes to call it a superpatch.

There are a few exceptions as the .500 Essbase related products were released last week and are separate downloads, I believe this also applies to DRM.

EPM 11.1.2.3 – Purging LCM migration status report

Prior to 11.1.2.3 it was possible to purge migration status reports from within Shared Services.

Where does EAS store user information

I have been meaning to write up this blog for a long time but never got around to it, recently there was a post on the Oracle forums which kick started me into finally addressing the topic.

In the pre 11.1.2 world of EAS it was simple to find out what users, server, profiles were being used in EAS as the information was all stored in XML files within the EAS storage directory.

LCM 11.1.2.3 now supports planning essbase data (after patching)

A quick update from me as I noticed an 11.1.2.3 patch was recently released for Shared Services:

Patch 17307819: PSU 11.1.2.3.050

EPM 11.1.2.3 clone utility

Whenever I complete a build of an environment I test out basic functionality of the installed products with a set of sample applications, reports and integrations, if there are a number of environments to build this process can sometimes be a little tedious so I was looking for a way to speed up and simplify the process.

In 11.1.2.3 a new command line utility appeared which allows the cloning of environments and it basically uses LCM (Lifecycle Management) as the engine to achieve this.

11.1.2.3 Planning – email configuration

To configure the email server in all planning releases prior to 11.1.2.3 it would be done through the system settings area in each application and this had to be done by the application owner.
