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. Add element to additional parent element --> possibility to search for parent element

    If you want to add an element to an additional parent element in modeller there is no way to search for a specific parent element in the new-parent-selection-combobox.
    Especially in large and deep hierarchy dimensions this feature would save modellers a lot of time.

  2. Mobile tags shouldn´t be user specific, should be set for all users like ressources

    Today when tagging a report with one of the mobile tags

    -phone
    -tablet
    -landscape
    - etc

    they are user specific, That means every user has to tag the report, but not all users have Access to the Report Designer, and therefor they can not tag the report.

    It should be possible that one user tags the reports, and then this is valid for all users who afterwards have Access to the report. Just like ressouces, which is only tag by one user, normaly the reportbuilder.

    It this way the report builder can define if scrollbars, Sheets selectors should be visible…

  3. Global Components in the Integration-Manager

    It would be very useful to have the possibility defining global Variables, Connections etc... (Perhaps even extracts!)
    In Case e.g. an IP-Adress of a source-server changed it is not longer necessary to change all the concerned connections in the projects, but only the one global defined connection...

    Global Connections have been implemented in Jedox version 2018.4. You can now define connections to all systems supported by Integrator in the Jedox Web Connection manager, and re-use them in several Integrator projects.

    For Variables, we introduced the ability to read variable values from the Settings Mangager in Jedox Web, allowing you to also centralize the variable handling.

  4. Improve Performance of core.exe

    Displaying big and complex reports is too slow.

    Unfortunately almost all customers wants to have a reports showing maximum details...

    Bottleneck seems to be core.exe, not palo.exe

  5. Anlage von eigenen Schlüsselgruppen

    Wenn man für Reports einen eigenen Schlüssel anlegen möchte (z.B. für das Kundenlogo), so kann man ihn derzeit nur direkt unter „Global“ anlegen.

    Es wäre sehr schön, wenn man auch eigene Schlüsselgruppen erstellen könnte (z.B. themengruppen-spezifisch), unter denen man dann die eigenen Schlüssel ablegen kann.

  6. SetVariables transform in Jedox Integrator

    Sometimes it is needed to fill variables from a datasource.
    For this task right now you always need a Groovy Job.
    which has 2 disadvantages:
    - it is not supported by a graphical user interface
    - it is somehow disconnected from your dataflow in terms of debugging/preview in subsequent steps

    So a kind of SetVariables transform would be great.

  7. Denormalization: generate Columns automatically

    In Denormalization table transform I have to configure each measure column one by one manually with aggregation, type etc.

    But based on the given measure/normalization column the system could generate them automatically -> at least as an initial suggestion with standard settings (sum aggregation, type numeric etc.).
    This can then be fine tuned manually by the user if needed

  8. Receive data from .NET Webservice with SSL

    To receive data from our asia department, we are using a .NET Webservice that is secured via SSL. To our disappointment, we have been informed that Jedox currently doesn't support this combination of technologies.

  9. In Excel, let users choose to which Jedox Web connection to publish when multiple connections are available

    When a user has multiple Jedox Web connections available (e.g. for Dev and Production) the "Publish" functions as well as Data Driven Modelling etc are just using the "default" Jedox Web connection. It would be good if users could actually select to which Jedox Web server they want to publish when they click the publish button. (Especially important when you start using Cloud on multiple instances).

  10. Re-Edit subset formulas in subset editor

    Currently in Jedox Web the subset editor can only be used to create - but NOT edit) subset formulas with the help of a graphical user interface.

    After creating the subset it is not possible to edit/change the formula again via the subset editor.
    It is only possible to apply changes in the formula itself by direct input,
    which is a nightmare => to always remember the order and meaning of every parameter in those long formulas.

    So re-loading a subset formula into the subset editor for applying changes would be very helpful.

  11. Field and variable tracker in ETL

    This feature would certainly increase effectiveness in troubleshooting transformations of specific fields or variables throughout the ETL process. It will also provide immediate insight in all the steps that a field or variable goes through while developing a (new) data flow in ETL.

    The idea?
    Trace fields and variables within all of your ETL-steps, e.g, the use in functions (field transforms), filters (table views) and any possible renaming to another field name.

    How? For example:
    - Select a field in any step of your ETL > right mouse button > choose "trace field" > pop-up with a FlowGraph of all…

  12. Excel Extract ignores empty lines

    The Excel extract in the ETL ignores empty lines.

    e.g.
    If you specify "Sheet1!A3:C100" to the Excel Extract and there are two empty lines at the top of the Sheet1, the Excel Extract start to read the sheet from fifth line of the sheet.

    The Excel extract should start to read the sheet from the specified position.

  13. Set a Variable by using a FieldTransform Function

    For those People, who are not so familiar in coding groovy it will become a challenge setting a Variable in the ETL-Manager by scripting groovy.

    So it would quite helpful to have a separate FieldTransform Function,
    which enables the user to set a variable directly.

    It would be also quite helpful, if the possible conflicts with datatypes could be solved with such a function..!

    example:

    There is an extract with 1 column and 1 row:

    number of reords
    4562156

    Calculate anything with this number...

    number of reords | records/50000 | counter | set_variable | get_variable |
    4562156 | 91,24312 |…

    A FieldTransform is not the right place to define variable values
    To achieve this you can:

    Alternative 1:
    - Create variable “number of records”
    - Create new transform of type TableLoop with

    • Loop source: The extract with 1 column (named “number of records”) and 1 row
    • Data source: The source which uses this variable anywhere

    Alternative 2:
    - Create variable “number of records”
    - Create new job of type eLoop with

    • Loop source: The extract with 1 column (named “number of records”) and 1 row
    • Execution type/name: A load or job which uses this variable anywhere

    Handling of datatypes is a separate topic.

  15. Delete multiple tasks at once

    When several tasks are selected, the button to delete them is grey.
    One should be able to delete multiple tasks at once.

  16. copy and paste of combo-boxes

    A request for copy and paste of buttons is already posted here, c&p for dyna ranges will come in Jedox 6, what about combo boxes? There should also be an easy way to copy and paste combo boxes (as in general for ALL objects and components in a report)

  17. more examples and demo reports

    I learned most of my Jedox knowledge by analysing the demo databases. It would be nice to have more demo dashboards and databases that show all the potential of Jedox (e.g. to use it for purchasing, operations, logistics, ...) and give inspiration for own reports and applications of Jedox.

  18. SAP Table extract - export all fields

    For very large tables in SAP it tooks a long time to select all fields to export. It would be nice if there is a select option to export all existing fields of a SAP-Table by one click.

  19. Run jobs in other etl projects

    In order to be able to use projects as sub-structures for a complex project it would be necessary to use a "master-project" to run jobs in other projects. This is currently not possible.

    Would be most helpful.

  20. Write Access to File Manager files in Jedox Integrator

    Since 5.1 SR3 it's possible to have read access to files in Jedox File Manager. It would be great to write/create files in Jedox File Manager with Jedox Integrator e.g. to give access to File Exports to the users with Jedox Web.
