SAP BusinessObjects BI platform support tool 2.1 Patch 8
Release Date: November 15 2019
FOUND IN VERSION
|com.sap.firefly.olap.component.IQModelComponent not found error when running Connections Analyzer||Added missing dependency which is required for newer versions of BI Platform.||2.1.7|
|Enterprise Alias Manager does not set password for alias correctly.|
Since documentation about the function IUserBase.isPasswordChangeAllowed() seems to be conflicting, made the step to change the way it checks for the contradiction that was fixed earlier this year. It will now always set password without condition. This problematic function while it says returns the value of SI_CHANGEPASSWORD, that is incorrect for third party users. It seems to always return false (while the value is true) for third party users.
