SAP BusinessObjects BI platform support tool 2.1 Patch 1
Build: 188.8.131.528 (03/02/2018)
Release Date: March 5 2018
|Add users and groups to Security Analyzer|
Added Users and Usergroups top level to the tree. Made the fetch for children objects to loop through all (not just 1000) to prevent future issues. Rewrote functions to be more generic so less maintenance.
|New Compare Server Services in Server Comparison Analysis|
Updated the comparison page under the APS tab to have 2 accordions. 1/ Compare Server Services and 2/ Compare Server Properties
Added a new table within the new accordion to show which APS servers include which services
|Add new server settings introduced in BI Platform 4.2 SP5||BITBITOOL-1513|
|Schedule Analysis : Display list of reports with the most instances|
Added a new section in the schedule analysis report which pulls the reports with most instances from the system. Works with top N, but not with date range - Pulling date range is much more expensive query-wise than simply finding instances
|Server Groups Summary||This new analysis type displays all info about server group configurations. It also does a check for reports configured to run against an orphaned server group||BITBITOOL-287|
|Include all metrics in Server Comparison||Added more metrics to the Server Comparison report||BITBITOOL-1500|
|Add Tomcat Executor threadpool settings to Web Application Server report||The Web Application Server Analysis now reports on any configured Executor threadpools||BITBITOOL-1540|
|Sizing recommendation alerts updated per latest 4.2 SP5 Sizing Guide||Some changes to sizing guidance and formulas in the latest sizing guide required changes to alerting logic. This has been updated per the latest recommendations||BITBITOOL-1530|
|Improvements made to Max Heap sizing check||There are now two alerts which calculate the total Max Heap on each host. One alert calculates total MaxHeap for all servers that are running and enabled. Another alert does the same but for all servers on the host, including those that are stopped/disabled.||BITBITOOL-1541|
|ISSUE DESCRIPTION||NEW BEHAVIOR||FOUND IN VERSION||JIRA ID#|
On Windows 8 and 10, the BIPST client UI text is chopped off and images / fields not sized correctly.
|The client will now auto-scale itself according to your windows DPI / font size settings. In preferences, it is also possible to manually set the zoom setting (auto, 100%, 125%, 150%, etc)||2.1.0||BITBITOOL-1567|
|When no host is defined in the landscape, but only webapp nodes exist, both the Hardware and Patch History fail with no displayed error.||Improved error handling in this situation.||2.1.0||BITBITOOL-1495|
|The error displayed when the Host Agent operations files are not deployed points to an outdated link||Updated wiki and links in error message||2.1.0||BITBITOOL-1506|

NullPointerException in BI Applications report when ran against BI Platform 4.0 and BI Platform 4.1
The NPE wasn't getting logged previously. The report displayed a tab for BIApplications but it was empty, along with a couple ui popup errors. This shows the errors at extraction time:
java.lang.NullPointerException at com.sap.ps.bitool.data.BIServerAdmin.dumpOpenDocApplication(BIServerAdmin.java:1510) at com.sap.ps.bitool.data.BIServerAdmin.dumpBIApplications(BIServerAdmin.java:670) at com.sap.ps.bitool.data.ApplicationsExtractor.run(ApplicationsExtractor.java:42) at org.eclipse.jface.operation.ModalContext$ModalContextThread.run(ModalContext.java:119)
|The problem is fixed||2.1.0||BITBITOOL-1520|
|With RTM build, you get looping classpath relauncher if version specified in preferences is out of sync with current batch file version||The problem is fixed||2.1.0||BITBITOOL-1498|
|Lumira Server description incorrect in landscape report||Updated the Lumira Server to use a new description rather than the stock APS server description within the landscape report. This is set during the extraction which means if you open an old report, the description displayed will be whatever was written to xml in the old extraction. IE. the generic APS description.||2.1.0||BITBITOOL-1516|
|Set Materialization Service data missing from Landscape Analysis Report extraction||Added param names / descriptions so they will be included during extraction||2.1.0||BITBITOOL-1514|
|WACS services missing from Server & Services extraction.|
Added - Web Services SDK and QaaWS Service
Added - BOE Web Application Service
Added the 4 parameters defined in each

Comparison tab now displays the parameter names and their corresponding param group names in the table.
The values for each parameter are now displayed correctly on both the main server & services tab as well as comparison tab
|Timeouts Analysis Report missing Customer Data Access Service||Added Custom Data Access Service and parameters to Timeouts report||2.1.0||BITBITOOL-1533|
|Predictive Support Alerts new contact setup was authenticating against service.sap.com which is a deprecated system. S-USER password set on service.sap.com does not get replicated to support.sap.com and as such, there is a password synchronization issue||Changed new PSA contact workflow and validate SUSER workflow from testing basic auth against service.sap.com to instead test a small text file upload against support documents URL (which is tied to support.sap.com authentication)||2.1.0||BITBITOOL-1517|
|When Scheduling to Predicitve Support Alerts destination, if the schedule fails to send to SAP, the instance does not fail and there is no indication that it failed to send (it shows success in the instance output)||If the Send to SAP destination fails, it will now show this in the instance log|
Platform Search alerts incorrectly formatted.
The alert table (same one that is displayed under a service or property/parameter table) to display the alerts from the table above was being created incorrectly which lead to the alert table growing upon itself rather than resetting for each session.
For instance, session 1 would display 2 alerts. Then if Session 2 had 3 alerts, it would display 5 in the table instead of 3. If session 3 had 2 alerts, the table under session 3 would display 7 instead of 3.
The problem is now fixed.
|System Alert for license key validation displays incorrect alert name||The problem is now fixed.||2.1.0||BITBITOOL-1502|
|Setting Java SSL keystore truststore values hangs client if no landscape definition created yet|
Disabled all buttons on the page apart from add and refresh unless a landscape is created.
Re-disabled all buttons on the page if all landscapes are removed
|HTML not rendering in cluster overview page||The problem is fixed||2.1.0||BITBITOOL-1546|

|Tomcat maxThreads not detected correctly||We now check if there is an exector defined for each connector. If there is an executor defined we display maxThreads and other settings from the Executor pool since the settings for the connector are ignored in this case||2.1.0||BITBITOOL-1540|
|Some APS parameters are displayed as milliseconds instead of seconds||For the parameters of Custom Data Access Service, Excel Data Access Service, Visualization Service, and WebI Monitoring Service, will change those that were showing in ms before, will convert to second to store in data xml||2.1.0||BITBITOOL-1547|
|Report History analysis type icons for License and Schedule were using wrong icons||The problem is now fixed.||2.1.0|

|ISSUE DESCRIPTION||FOUND IN VERSION||TARGET VERSION FOR FIX||JIRA ID#|
|Hardware Summary Analysis report not working when BI is running on AIX platform. This is a limitation of the SAP Host Agent. ETA for a fix to the SAP Host Agent is unknown at this point.||2.x||Unknown|
E2E Trace Wizard : In some cases, using a domain user from a different domain (not the domain of the user currently logged on to windows) causes the SAP Client Plug-in Administrator logon to fail. (this logon allows the SAP Client Plug-in to start under local administrative access).
Workaround 2: Uncheck the option to Use Integrated SAP Client Plug-in and on step 3 manually launch the SAP Client Plug-in from the location:
