This section explains how to deal with the upgrade from previous versions when the adhoc report metadata changes with respect to the new version. Changes include adding new model into an adhoc report, or changing field name in the existing adhoc report.
- Note: The following instructions affect the upgrade from previous versions in which the adhoc report metadata changes with respect to the actual version. For example, the Connect Model option is not available until Connect 3.0.2. For this reason, when upgrading from releases prior to Connect 3.0.1 to versions Connect 3.0.2 or higher, you should follow these steps. Particularly, when upgrading from Connect 3.0.2, the Connect Model option appears on the New Report page but if you move to the next page, the custom attribute options are missing until these steps are executed.
If the adhoc report metadata changes when you upgrade from a previous version, you should follow the following steps after installing the new version:
- Select My Settings > Admin > Repository Management.
- Click More button.
- Click on the options in the following order:
- Refresh Reporting Metadata.
- Execute Global Action.
- Refresh System Settings.
- Click Close.
