Written by admin on February 16th, 2016 at 7:38 am

We are pleased to announce the release of the UMT360 for SharePoint 2013 SP1 (2014 release) – Cumulative Update 4 / CU4. Cumulative Updates include all previously released public updates and private hotfixes. We strongly recommend that any patch and release is validated in a non-production environment first before being applied to production environments.

Here’s the list of fixes and improvements addressed:

  • Performance and Reliability
    • Addressed issues with importing data to custom fields failing when updating information for projects without an associated workflow
    • Fixed behavior where locked (approved) budgets are affected by changes in financial granularity linked to workflow stage transitions
    • Addressed infrequent issues with incorrect calculation of granularity units on the creation of new time periods
    • Fixed issues with the Cost Center Mappings update failing with primary key constraint violation if multiple users mappings are created against the same cost center
    • Addressed issues with errors being logged in the ULS when 6 or more users simultaneously perform operations that lead to creation of Queue jobs
    • Fixed errors on creating OLAP cubes after Project Owners have been removed from the Active Directory
    • Improved reliability of the Push Settings functionality (violation of primary key constraint)
    • Fixed issues with Dependency conditions being evaluated incorrectly in the UMT360 Fields web part for custom fields created based on multi-level lookup tables
    • Corrected intermitted issues with updates to the Reporting tables failing for projects created using an Enterprise Project Type with an associated Project Plan Template
    • Removed limit of 32767 snapshots per snapshot template
    • Improved behavior or the Queue Cleanup process to delete correlated blocked jobs when appropriate
    • Addressed scenarios where financial reporting periods could have been inadvertently created (opened) without the most recent period being approved
    • Fixed incorrect exchange rate multiplication for the dbo.cmSnapshotBreakdownValues table
  • Reporting and OLAP Infrastructure
    • Added the ability to use custom fields of type Date and Text (single line and multi-line) as OLAP cube dimensions
  • Data Import
    • Expanded the list of available import identifiers types to include the Project Guid
    • Extended the types of Custom Fields supported for import to include Flag types
  • API
    • Added a new method – QueueStartDataImportWithValidationByTemplateName – that allows for triggering an import session based on a template name and a file location
  • Other
    • Fixed incorrect Last Changed timestamp after editing a Change Request
    • Addressed issues around users without the Review Change Request permission not being able to reactivate Change Requests
    • Extended the Copy Dimension functionality to provide the ability to copy a Forecast-type Financial Dimension (FD) to any Budget- and Forecast-type FD within the same Enterprise Financial Type
    • Fixed the Click here link from the Manage Groups and Manage Templates pages to always point to the correct addresses regardless of the name of the PWA site
    • Correctly delete all related data associated with a survey when a project is deleted
    • Values for custom fields of type Date are now correctly displayed in Snapshots
    • Values for custom fields based on lookup table are now rendered as read-only when viewing a Snapshot
