Additional release for QPR ProcessAnalyzer 2021.9 (build 709) (released 2021-12-20)

This release has brought back SQL Server 2014 support.

Features:

  • B-06489: Restore support for SQL Server 2014.
  • B-06257: Add new SAP data extraction connector library SAP NetWeaver RFC (preview feature).
  • B-06443: Snowflake availability status is added to /api/serverinfo.

QPR ProcessAnalyzer 2021.9 (build 700) (released 2021-12-14)

Starting from QPR ProcessAnalyzer 2021.9, ScriptLauncher uses Web API instead of legacy WCF API, and thus also the ScriptLauncher needs to be updated to 2021.9. In addition, in the ScriptLauncher configuration file, ConnectionType setting needs to be WebApi (the setting is in place in the 2021.9 release package). The new Web API based ScriptLauncher is not anymore dependent on the API protocol version, and thus starting from 2021.9, information about the protocol version is not published. The old ScriptLauncher using protocol version 39 still works with the 2021.9, but as the WCF API is deprecated, ScriptLauncher update is mandatory before updating to 2022.1.

When taking into use the Web API based ScriptLauncher, the ServiceUrl setting in the ScriptLauncher configuration file needs to be set differently: Previously it was enough to specify the server name (e.g. https://processanalyzer.onqpr.com), but now also the application path needs to be specified (e.g. https://processanalyzer.onqpr.com/qprpa). This issue will be resolved in upcoming release.

Starting from QPR ProcessAnalyzer 2021.9, support for SQL Server 2012 and SQL Server 2014 has been dropped. See more in system requirements.

The predefined analyses operations that QPR ProcessAnalyzer has traditionally been based on, are now deprecated and will be replaced by functionality provided by the expression language. In practice, the following features will be removed:

  • --#GetAnalysis command in SQL scripting: If there are scripts using that command, replace them with the new --#RunQuery which uses the expression language to query data.
  • Analysis function in expression language: If using that function, replace it with other functionalities provided by the expression language.
  • POST /api/analysis/{analysisType} endpoint in the Web API: If using that endpoint in customized solutions, call the /api/expression/query endpoint instead.

QPR ProcessAnalyzer WCF API is now deprecated and it will not be available starting from 2022.1 release. All customized integrations and other solutions that use WCF API need to be converted to use Web API. Note that there may also exist scripts that contact the WCF API using the --#CallWebService command. The used API can be distinguished from the url: if it contains "/MainService.svc" the connection is to the WCF API and changes are required.

When installing 2021.9 server, note that there is a change in the web.config file, as httpRuntime element includes now targetFramework="4.7.1" attribute. Also, QPR ProcessAnanalyzer ScriptLauncher web.config has changed, as ConnectionType is now WebApi instead of Service.

SQL scripting commands that create datatables and temporary tables, use now specific column data types (such as NVARCHAR(MAX), INT, FLOAT, DATETIME2 and BIT) instead of SQL_VARIANT. This may affect SQL commands that have relied on the SQL_VARIANT column type. For example, in joins there may be mismatches between data types, requiring explicit type conversion.

Features:

  • B-03221: Flowchart has been renewed.
  • B-06378: Old flowchart has been removed.
  • B-06317: --#runQuery to run expression queries in SQL scripts.

QPR ProcessAnalyzer 2021.8 (build 614) (released 2021-11-02)

Known issue in 2021.8: Some dashboards created with earlier releases, may give following error when opened: Chart settings are invalid, and the chart may not work correctly. Type of property "measures/0/nullValue" must be string." Despite the error message, the dashboard still works correctly. The issue can be resolved by going through all charts in the dashboard and opening the Chart settings (in the Advanced tab). If the settings contain one of the following: nullValue: null, emptyStringValue: null, trueValue: null or falseValue: null, replace them follows: nullValue: "", emptyStringValue: "", trueValue: "", falseValue: "". When changes have been made, save the dashboard and check that there is no error, when the dashboard is opened. This issue will also be fixed in the next release, and if decided to wait for it, there is no need to edit the dashboards.

Known issue in 2021.8: Some dashboards created with earlier releases, may give following error when opened: Chart settings are invalid, and the chart may not work correctly. Property "expressionType" is required in dimensions/0." In addition to the error message, some charts in the dashboard may not work correctly. This issue appears if there are empty measures or dimensions ("none" selected) above defined measures or dimensions. The issue can be resolved by removing the empty measures and dimensions by clicking the Remove button for the measure/dimension. This may affect how the remaining measures and dimensions are mapped to the visualization, so the mappings may need to be adjusted in the measure/dimension settings. When changes have been made, save the dashboard and check that there is no error, when the dashboard is opened. This issue will also be fixed in the next release, and if decided to wait for it, there is no need to edit the dashboards.

QPR ProcessAnalyzer 2021.4 (build 328) (released 2021-05-18)

Notes:

There is a breaking change in 2021.4 related to using tags in custom expressions: If a tag provides a string value, before it was written e.g. Attribute("<#AutomationAttribute>"), but now it needs to be written Attribute(<#AutomationAttribute>), because the quotation marks of the string literal now come with the value replacement. The former will cause error in 2021.4, as there will be two sets of quotation marks. This problem does not concern other type of values (e.g. numeric), as they don't have quotation marks.

Scripts that are stored to the model or user context are not available in the scripting web UI (scripts in project and system context are available). If you have scripts in the model or user context, they need to be recreated in the project or system context using the Excel Client latest in 2021.4. Starting from 2021.5, scripts in the model or user context are preserved in the system, but cannot be used anymore (and they will be removed in a future release).

Tables used in dashboards are updated to the next generation of Syncfusion JS2 components. The Custom layout settings (defined as JSON) of the table might not be compatible between the generations, and thus they need to be changed manually after updating to 2021.4. See instructions how to migrate settings between the generations of the component: https://ej2.syncfusion.com/documentation/grid/ej1-api-migration/.

Starting from QPR ProcessAnalyzer 2021.4, the Data Grid Export Service (used for exporting tables as Excel files) is not needed anymore. The renewed table is able to create export files in the browser side without using any server/cloud side service. If the Data Grid Export Service has previously been installed, it's recommended to uninstall it for security reasons (to reduce attack surface).

There is a new step in the QPR ProcessAnalyzer server installation instructions for allowing large process mining models: .Net configuration: gcAllowVeryLargeObjects. The change should also be done for earlier QPR ProcessAnalyzer server versions if using models that have more than 50 million events.

QPR ProcessAnalyzer 2021.1 (build 163) (released 2021-01-18)

Features:

  • 308096: New function "EventLog" to expression language to explicitly define preprocessings.

Fixed issues:

  • 219612: Opening models dropdown list jammed UI when there are lot of models.
  • 219495: Improve error message when trying to change login name to already existing.

QPR ProcessAnalyzer 2021.1 (build 156) (released 2021-01-12)

Notes:

There is a potential performance issue with the list of models in the header, which may appear when there are dozens of models in the list. When there are lot of models, the models list jams the UI when opened. The next release (build 163) has solved the issue.

QPR ProcessAnalyzer 2021.1 does not have the Data Grid and HTML presentation objects, and they have been replaced by easier-to-use and more powerful Chart presentation object, which supports many layouts such as tables. After updating to QPR ProcessAnalyzer 2021.1, existing dashboards containing Data Grid and HTML presentation objects will contain a placeholder with a message that the presentation object doesn't exist. That placeholder can be removed and replaced with the Chart presentation object. If you need to preserve settings for the removed presentation objects, that needs to be done before updating to QPR ProcessAnalyzer 2021.1.

Data types of the datatables and temporary tables created by the --#ImportSapQuery command has been changed: previously data types were NVARCHAR(255) for all columns. Now the maximum length in the NVARCHAR data type depends on the SAP data field length. This optimizes the space needed for data storage. In addition, there is a new parameter ConvertDataTypes allowing to specify which data types are converted correctly instead of using textual format.

Features:

  • 308075: Chart data point colors can be defined using conditional formatting.
  • 307816: Datatables to workspace (part 1).
  • 308076: QPRLibraries migration to Syncfusion JS2 (part 4).

QPR ProcessAnalyzer 2020.8 (build 113) (released 2020-12-09)

Notes:

This release fixes the following performance issue 219585: Showing models list blocks until model loadings have been completed. It caused the Model manager and list of models not to open while a model loading was in progress.

QPR ProcessAnalyzer 2020.8 (build 80) (released 2020-11-10)

Notes:

The database major version has changed in QPR ProcessAnalyzer 2020.8, which means that earlier QPR ProcessAnalyzer releases are not compatible with the database that has been updated to QPR ProcessAnalyzer 2020.8. This needs to be taken into account in those environments where multiple versions of QPR ProcessAnalyzer server are run using the same database.

Eventlog data for the legacy models is removed from the database automatically when updating to QPR ProcessAnalyzer 2020.8. This leads to permanent loss of data if all the needed models are not converted into the datatable-based models before updating to QPR ProcessAnalyzer 2020.8. If there are model conversions to be done, install QPR ProcessAnalyzer 2020.6 that can be used at the same time with QPR ProcessAnalyzer 2020.7 and make the conversions as described in the release notes for QPR ProcessAnalyzer 2020.7. After the conversion, update to QPR ProcessAnalyzer 2020.8 can be done (and QPR ProcessAnalyzer 2020.6 and 2020.7 be uninstalled). If you need help in converting your models, please contact customercare@qpr.com.

The web.httpsOnly.config file included in the 2020.8 installation package is incorrect and it should not be used. The issue has been fixed in the next release (build 113).

QPR ProcessAnalyzer 2020.8 brings a change in the server Web.config file which need to be taken into account in the update. The change concerns section configuration > runtime > assemblyBinding > bindingRedirect for Newtonsoft.Json, where the new line is <bindingRedirect oldVersion="0.0.0.0-11.0.0.0" newVersion="11.0.0.0" />.

QPR ProcessAnalyzer 2020.7 (build 12) (released 2020-09-29)

Notes:

Support for the legacy models is dropped in QPR ProcessAnalyzer 2020.7, and the models need to be converted to the new datatable-based models before updating to QPR ProcessAnalyzer 2020.7. You can check the model type as follows: Open QPR ProcessAnalyzer Web UI, open the models dropdown list in the header, find the model, open Properties for the model, and go to the Datasources tab. If the Load from Database is yes, the model is a legacy model and requires conversion.

The conversion can be done as follows:

  1. In QPR ProcessAnalyzer Web UI, export the model as a .pacm file by clicking Export Model in the Model Properties (in the Actions tab).
  2. Go to the Datasources tab, change the Load from Database from Yes to No, and change the Cases Datasource to Datatable. The Events Datasource is already correct.
  3. Import the .pacm file back to the same model using the Data Import in the navigation menu. In the import form, select Import to Existing model and choose the model. Checkbox Add to existing data can be in either position.

Notes regarding the conversion:

  • Exporting and importing operations might take long time for very large models.
  • Model id's are not changed in the conversion.
  • Original filters and their id's are preserved but new duplicate filters are created during the import (which can be deleted).

QPR ProcessAnalyzer server installation has some files removed comparing to the previous version, because the WCF tester legacy functionality has been removed. Please note this, if updating the server by replacing the old files, because the files that need to be removed don't actually get removed with that method. The files to be removed are default.aspx, favicon.ico and processanalyzer.png and folder scripts.

Excel Client protocol version is changed which requires to update QPR ProcessAnalyzer Excel Client when updating to QPR ProcessAnalyzer 2020.7.

The version numbering of QPR ProcessAnalyzer has changed, and now releases are identified using a simple version number instead of the previous version format (e.g. 2020.6.0.42152). The version number can be seen in the User Settings in the main navigation menu.

QPR ProcessAnalyzer 2020.5 (released 2020-06-29)

Build number: 2020.5.0.41888, Model compatibility version: 3, Database version: 73, PACM file version: 7, Protocol version: 33. (see more)

Notes:

  • Dashboards structure is simplified, as panels are removed and presentation objects are placed directly to the dashboard canvas. In addition, panel headers are not available anymore. Presentation objects have now background color, border color, border width and border corner radius, that were previously in the panel level. All existing dashboards are automatically migrated to the newer structure. Existing dashboards that have several presentation objects within a same panel, are positioned on top of the others, so in those cases presentation objects need to be repositioned manually after updating to QPR ProcessAnalyzer 2020.5.
  • IP address verification of user sessions has been removed. Previously, each user session was only allowed from the same IP address. This kind of security feature won't work with IPv6 addresses which usually change more often than IPv4 addresses.

Features:

  • 307938: Support for French language.
  • 307868: New dashboard designer that doesn't have panels.
  • 307947: Tables conditional formatting
  • 307948: Dashboard properties layout and terminology changes.

QPR ProcessAnalyzer 2020.4 (released 2020-05-26)

Build number: 2020.4.0.41643, Model compatibility version: 3, Database version: 71, PACM file version: 7, Protocol version: 33. (see more)

Notes:

  • In QPR ProcessAnalyzer 2020.4, the deployment package dashboards come with the installation, so there is no deployment package anymore to be installed. The previous deployment package located in the QPR ProcessAnalyzer UI project can be deleted when 2020.4 is installed.
  • To fix issue Datetimes are incorrect in files exported from data grids (219377), data grid export service needs to be updated from version V001 to V002.
  • Issue workaround: After updating to QPR ProcessAnalyzer 2020.4, dashboards containing the root causes analysis give an error message about invalid chart configuration. The problem can be fixed as follows: from the JSON text that appears in the full screen text editor, make the following text replacements: "Case Attribute" --> "Case attribute" and "Attribute Value" --> "Attribute value". When the dashboard is saved, the error doesn't appear anymore.
  • To improve performance, for custom expressions in charts it's recommended to replace ??_remove with the RemoveNulls function. Example: Expression Average((_.Attribute("Cost") ??_remove)._) can be changed to Average(RemoveNulls(_.Attribute("Cost"))).
  • To improve performance, for custom expressions in charts it's recommended to change expressions that make duration aggregations to work in a way that the aggregation is made before converting TimeSpans to integers (e.g. to days). Example: expression Average(_.Duration.TotalDays) can be changed to Average(_.Duration).TotalDays.
  • Issue: In Firefox, when opening a dashboard, an error message "Error in chart settings" might appear (the dashboard is still opened correctly). If the issue appears, it's recommended to use Chrome, where the issue does not appear that often. There are no other workarounds available for the issue.
  • Issue: FlowOccurrences and FlowOccurrencesByType properties don't work for Case objects when there are also filter rules applied. Some measures and dimensions use those properties. QPR ProcessAnalyzer 2020.5 will fix the issue, and for earlier versions there is no workaround.

Features:

  • 307859: Deployment package dashboards are embedded to QPR ProcessAnalyzer release.
  • 307899: RemoveNulls function to remove null values from arrays.
  • 307915: Expression language improvements related to CSV file generation.
  • 307809: When dashboard is opened, editing mode is disabled when no rights to edit the dashboard.
  • 307829: Highcharts, Syncfusion, GoJS and some other components have been updated to their latest versions.
  • 307848: Component updates for building QPR ProcessAnalyzer UI.
  • 307882: JavaScript libraries are split into smaller files in release build.
  • 307932: Some PAPO buttons are removed from the tool palette.
  • 307912&307917: ChartView and main header improvements for 2020.4 (parts 1 and 2).

Fixed bugs:

  • 219365: Sometimes system stuck during the time models were being loaded into memory.
  • 219326&219377: Datetimes are incorrect in files exported from data grids (time zone difference) (See also the notes above).
  • 219378: ChartView resizing sometimes didn't work when using full screen.
  • 219371: Error messages have been improved for session expired and unknown error.
  • 219360: Some styles were defined twice in CSS.

Additional release for QPR ProcessAnalyzer 2020.3 (released 2020-04-23)

Build number: 2020.3.0.41450, Model compatibility version: 3, Database version: 71, PACM file version: 7, Protocol version: 33.

Features:

  • 307902 ChartView improvements for 2020.3 hotfix: Custom expressions have by default datatype "auto", added support for binding to multi-select lists in Variable bindings, bugfix: Custom sorting didn't work in presets, bugfix: Aggregation method for Pivot table was not selected correctly.

Fixed bugs:

  • 219370: Dashboards could not be edited by other than administrators.
  • 219361: Flowchart sometimes crashed to ThrowKeyNotFoundException when pressing Root Causes button.

QPR ProcessAnalyzer 2020.3 (released 2020-04-16)

Build number: 2020.3.0.41413, Model compatibility version: 3, Database version: 71, PACM file version: 7, Protocol version: 33.

Notes:

  • Legacy Chart and Gauge presentation objects are removed from QPR ProcessAnalyzer (they are different than ChartView). If there are dashboards containing those types of presentation objects after updating to 2020.3, there will be a placeholder frame instead with an error message of a non-existing presentation object. To change the dashboard, remove those placeholders and replace with ChartViews. It's recommended to make the replacement to ChartViews before the update, because chart and gauge settings cannot be accessed anymore in 2020.3.
  • ChartView will change from an HTML presentation object to a native presentation object, which ensures that dashboards will work in future releases when the ChartView is evolving. ChartViews created with 2020.2 will be automatically migrated to the native ChartViews in 2020.3. ChartViews created with 2020.1 or earlier releases need to be updated manually by removing the ChartView from the dashboard and replacing it with a new ChartView.

Features:

  • 307849: Securely stored strings for passwords.
  • 307746: ChartView is now a native presentation object instead of an HTML presentation object. ChartView's made in 2020.2 are automatically converted to the native presentation objects.

  • 307556: Functions to expression language to improve usability and performance: CaseCount, EventCount, EventCountByType and Round.
  • 307895: SQL scripting command for database commit.
  • 307850: Expression language performance improvement by a new way to calling functions and properties.
  • 307858: Expression language: Support for array operators.
  • 307845: Header buttons layout has been improved.
  • 307870: Preprocessings are determined automatically.
  • 307761: Functionality that user doesn't have access is now disabled in the dashboard designer and workspace to avoid access denied errors.
  • 307839: Generic chart and gauge presentation objects are removed.
  • 307863: Automatic redirection to SAML authentication.
  • 307872: API support for querying if SAML is configured.
  • 307846: Error message further improvements.
  • 307888: Error message text changes for Dashboard not found and Multiple dashboards found.
  • 307874 & 307887: ChartView and main header has been improved.

Fixed bugs:

  • 219341: Analysis function unnecessarily required FilterId parameter.
  • 219343: Root causes analysis gave access denied when using Analysis function.
  • 219348: Query cancellation caused database connection leakage.
  • 219332: "Thread was being aborted" returned to client while loading model from datatable.
  • 219321: Removed unnecessary error log lines "Missing expected HttpRequest X-Forwarded-For" that appeared even if UseXForwardedForAsClientIp=false.
  • 219335: [_remove ]._ or empty array is not handled correctly in a KPI dimension.
  • 219340: default.aspx does not work.
  • 219330: EditDashboards permission should be needed for target project when moving dashboards between projects.
  • 219347: Queries done by the main header were cancelled when view is changed.
  • 219355: Expression language: Was unable to use properties of the parent context in dictionary initialization.
  • 219346: PAPO flowchart should have by default median duration shown on flows and flow counts hidden.
  • 219333: PAPO generated incorrect filter JSON and unnecessary query.
  • 219311: When opened a view by identifier, the view was fetched twice from the server.
  • 219329: Unnecessary information was stored in database for dashboard definitions.
  • 219362: Issues with session expiration checks.
  • 219364: Session expiration with SAML authentication configured gives incorrect error message.
  • 219344: Case count view in model manager header and Home view can cause unwanted model loading.
  • 219242: Flowchart is not updated correctly after event type filtering.

QPR ProcessAnalyzer 2020.2 (released 2020-03-09)

Build number: 2020.2.0.41129, Model compatibility version: 3, Database version: 67, PACM file version: 7, Protocol version: 33.

Notes:

  • Expression language has now a conditional operator "if" and variable declaration operator "let". In earlier QPR ProcessAnalyzer versions, the expression language had functions If and Let which earlier could also be written in lowercase (i.e. "if" and "let"). Starting from QPR ProcessAnalyzer 2020.2, the lowercase versions refer to the conditional and variable declaration operators, and the uppercase versions refer to the corresponding functions. If there are expressions containing "If" and "Let" functions written in lowercase, please change them starting with uppercase.
  • Issue workaround: The Root Causes analysis don't work (shows empty) in the right side chart (PAPO) of the Process Discovery view. The issue can be fixed as follows by an administrator: click the Edit toggle button, click the right side chart, click the Edit icon in the top right of the chart, click the chart again, click Properties icon in the top right of the chart, open Variables tab, find the InfluenceAttributeTypeId variable, and change its value to empty (instead of 20). Click Close twice to go back to the main level and click Save button. The issue will be fixed to 2020.3.
  • Issue workaround: In ChartView, the Duration between events measure and dimension don't work when there are filters in use (the chart is empty). Workaround is to add the following Suffix expression to the measure or dimension settings (without quotes): "//eventtypes". The issue will be fixed to 2020.3.

Features:

  • 307779: SAML 2.0 support for PA UI.
  • 307789: PAPO now supports ModelId variable and new filters.
  • 307854: Filter selector for main header.
