MicroStrategy Web

Analysts should review the Expected Behavioral Changes.

MicroStrategy Platform

  • There are several new default settings for the MicroStrategy platform that help improve system performance.
  • The MicroStrategy platform is certified on Microsoft Windows 10 (April 2018 Upgrade)

  • Manually Configure Collaboration Server: Instructions are now available for manual configuration on both Windows and Linux Servers.
  • Control User and Group Caches: You can now set the time between resets of the user and group information caches for Collaboration Server.

MicroStrategy Intelligence Server

  • By default Intelligence Server will now send logs to local disk instead of Messaging Services. Click here for steps required to enable sending logs to Messaging Services.

  • To provide more consistent behavior between Live Connect and In-Memory datasets the VLDB Setting for controlling the trimming of leading and trailing spaces for attribute elements is in the process of being retired. You may notice some data inconsistencies in executed dossiers and documents if you have used this feature in previous releases. Some of these inconsistencies may be observed between Web and Android Library application vs iOS mobile Library application. The retirement of this setting will be completed for the next platform release.

  • Schedule Bookmark Caches: Administrators can schedule bookmark caches to ensure that the latest data is stored in a server-side cache delivering a high performance or reduced loading time to end users.
  • Library Cache Update Subscriptions: Administrators can create cache update subscriptions for dossiers providing improved performance while maintaining the personal views and bookmarks of each subscriber.
  • Prioritized Caches: To improve Intelligence Server memory management caches will now be prioritized by type. You can track cache type utilization with the Diagnostics and Performance Logging Tool.
  • Session Management: Enhanced session management provides users seamless access to all projects and objects within an asymmetric Intelligence Server cluster.
