6.4 Beta Limitations

Weeks-time Resolution:

  • The week hierarchy is not automatically available for drilling down in widgets that were created prior to 6.4. Designers can add the week hierarchy manually.
  • Changing the first day of week after using a dashboard or widget filter/drill with weeks in use might lead to bad results. To resolve the issue, the week filter should be removed and added again. For instructions on how to define the first day of the week, click here.
  • Sisense does not support the following functions when working on the week level: Growth/Growth Rate, Running Sum/Avg, Past Value, and Prev/Next.

Sisense JS: Sisense.js overrides the “Date” prototype with the “toISOString” function.

High Availability: The Sisense build node that distributes ElastiCubes to your query nodes does not support concurrent builds.

Connectors: After upgrading to the latest drivers, ElastiCubes that import tables from MongoDB/BigQuery/Hive using the lastest drivers will not be backwards compatible with the pre-6.4 drivers.
