Jedox Feature Voting Tool

Dear Jedox User,

in our continuous strive to improve our services, features and to help you gain your share of this ever growing market we are introducing the Jedox Feature Voting System.
This new service is currently exclusively available for you, our Users and Partners.

What is this Jedox Feature Voting System?
It is a tool that provides you with the options to create and vote on Feature request, Ideas and any other general Feedback.
This in return provides us with the necessary Information to react and provide you with the things you need.

We invite you to browse this Page, create and vote on new Features, Ideas and requests!

How can we improve Jedox Software?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Exclusive system access / Maintenance mode

    Sometimes you don't want to have regular users on the system because you are recovering from a backup or are changing user rights heavily. At the moment you must de-activate users which can cause a lot of confusion in the company and requires some preparation time. It would be beneficial if you can just set the whole system into a maintenance mode - restricting access to the maintaining team (maybe by a special role). In addition the start page could be changed to indicate a maintenance mode to the users / as well as a proper Excel error message.

  2. NEW Active Directory mode, that combine the "Authentication" and "Authorization" mode.

    Currently it is neither possible in "Authentication" mode nor in "Authorization" mode to automatically create/login the users via the AD* and subsequently assign several additional groups to the user.
    Either you have to create them manually and assign the additional groups or you can only become the assigned groups in the AD.

    Due to its needed in more projects I´m really looking forward for a combination of both modes.

  3. Allow Install of Excel Plug-in subsequently to install of Server components on the same machine

    On most servers Excel is not installed. Hence, during the install of Jedox it is not possible to install the Excel plug-in. We just install OLAP, Web, Tomcat etc.
    Subsequently it is not possible to add the Excel Plugin to the install on the server (at least so it seems) once it was decided that Excel is also installed on the server after Jedox was installed originally. One has to uninstall the server components and then completely re-install everything, just to add the Excel plugin. It would be nice if the installer was capable of installing the Excel Add-In, AFTER…

  4. Don't show _internal_suite in the list of users

    The _internal_suite user gets everyone confused. Every client that is a bit less technical worries about it ("Does it take a license", "What if we delete it", "What if the password is changed" and so on and on). There is absolutely no need that I can see to have _internal_suite shown in the list of users. If it's something that Jedox needs internally that's fine, but please don't expose it to users.

  5. Data Volume Analyzer

    A way to analyze a cube from the perspective of data volumes in particular areas of a model. If a client splashes into an empty area of a cube and causes data explosion (huge populated cells, slowdown, etc,etc) , we require a way from an admin perspective to analyse where the problem data actually is in a model.

  6. Automatic Update Manager

    This manager should receive the information from Jedox Server when new binaries are available.
    The Manager should have 3 modes:
    1.) If automatic update is activated it will download the binaries and will replace them before starting anew.
    2.) The administrator will be prompt, that new binaries are available and are ready for download.
    3.) Offline - Manuall upadte packages can be selected (should be downloadable from the homepage).

  7. docker support

    Jedox use chroot on linux, but it would be far better using docker.

    - it would be possible to minimize the libs needed when running on the same centos than the one from linux

    - we would be able to run multiple jedox-docker images on the same hardware

    - it would simplify the installation

    - we could port a docker image from the server to a local machine easily for debuging purposes

  8. log-rotate für alle logs

    At the moment, only tomcat has a proper log-rotate.
    I think Jedox need a proper and consistant logging-format and log-rotate for all logs, configurable at one place, even if the is several product underneath.

  9. Retrieving active session info

    Currently it is possible to view the active session information from the Session Manager in the Jedox Web, but there is no way to retrieve the information from the reports and the ETL projects.

    To retrieve the active session information from the reports and the ETL projects, I want it to be saved in a file or stored in a database.

  10. Search users

    A feature request for clients with large list of users (200+)
    It would be good to be able to search Users and Groups like you can search logs. #17105

  11. package based deployment on linux

    please consider the benefits of a package based installation which uses the upstream apache/tomcat packages.
    at the moment you are using a chroot-like model which has the big flaw of not getting security updates from the distribution channels.
    hearthbleed bug was one example where we thought we were save because of the system SSL-updates but weren't because jedox uses its own SSL-Libs.
    Yes, there are a lot of distros out there, but noone expects support for all of them. Please focus on CentOS/Redhat/SUSE and Debian-Based distributions. this way it should not be to hard to be up-to-date.
    All of the…

  12. Assign Default License Type by Group

    We had the case in the past that users run out of "named licenses" even though we had purchased enough licenses. The reason is that users are assigned by default to the "Jedox" license type and not to "Jedox Analyzer" or "Jedox Viewer".

    In Jedox Web, tab System Manager, then Licenses, the server shows the available and used license seats. If the admin user clicks on a license type, the active sessions are shown at the bottom. A second tab allows the assignment of users to specific license types (see attached file screen_1).

    This process is ok when you have…

  13. White-labeling / OEM support

    In addition to current support (motd and custom login page), Jedox should also support "white-labeling"; add support to exchange visual references to Jedox e.g. Jedox logo with custom graphics. This should be supported across the product, starting with setup, over Excel Add-in and finally in Web. #16321

  14. Distributing Jedox Suite Components on Multiple Servers

    The possibility to distribute every component on multiple servers will ensure scalability for very large models.
    One Master could distribute read requests to multiple workers and aggregate the results from all workers before sending the result to the client.
    One Master could distiribute write requests to multiple workers to enhance loading performance.
