Bugs Fixed in ER/Studio 18.1.0
|RWP-6599||Corrects an issue in some situations causing upgrades from previous versions to not properly migrate some table properties, such as composite data types.|
|RWP-7568||Previously, users who had RTF formatting for glossaries and terms in ER/Studio Team Server were restricted to approximately 600 characters of content rather than 200.
This release includes storage expanded correctly to accommodate the formatting tags.
|RWP-7675||Corrects an issue that caused Team Server to display the tag rather than the actual formatting in some instances.
This issue occurred when viewed by non-administrator users after the administrator edited some fields within the custom tags.
|RWP-7742||Corrects the export of glossaries and terms when an advanced search is applied to restrict the result set.|
|RWP-7746||For models published in Team Server, the order of the attachments now appears in the same order as in the source model.|
|RWP-7974||Corrected a buffer overflow error resulting when publishing metadata for very large check constraints to an Oracle hosted Team Server database.
This overflow triggered an ORA-22835 exception: Buffer too small for CLOB to CHAR or BLOB to RAW conversion.
|RWP-8165||When using the change management integration to Jira, tasks from Jira were not appearing correctly in order to be referenced during check-in or check-out.|
|RWP-8197||Corrected an issue when publishing reference values in Oracle hosted environments.
Reference values with large min/max values were causing an overflow exception - ORA-01401: inserted value too large for column.
|RWP-8360||Descriptive business rules in data lineage models are not being formatted correctly when published in Team Server.|
|RWP-8379||When sorting on the Publications page, sorts did not work correctly when Team Server contained data model diagrams and Business Architect workspaces.
The publications UI is updated to clearly designate data model diagrams vs workspaces and sort correctly.
|RWP-8437||Global auto-publish preferences UI has been updated to make it clear that changes apply to workspaces as well as data model diagrams.|
|RWP-8470||This release includes improvements to repository/team server configurator.
These improvements help support Windows authentication to connect to the SQL Server hosted database from repository services and the Team Server application server.
|RWP-8476||Updated the configurator UI to indicate that Oracle versions up to 12CR2 are supported for repository/Team Server hosting.|
|RWP-8523||When publishing a model, a NULL pointer exception occurred due to corruption in the model file itself.
This exception caused publishing to fail before completing publish of the valid metadata in the file.
Publishing is modified to handle this exception condition more gracefully, allowing publication to complete.
|RWP-8537||When publishing a model created in version 16.0 or earlier, the definition text may not be properly aligned for some objects.
This issue was due to hidden RTF tags that are included when a definition is edited.
Publishing of the metadata has been corrected to retain correct alignment and indenting.
|RWP-8544||Improved performance of comments synchronization during publishing.|
Bugs Fixed in ER/Studio 18.0.0
|RWP-6710||The Publishing console now displays several intermediate status values during publication to provide better visibility of status.
When all processing is complete, the final status is stated as "Published."
|RWP-6768||Corrects an issue that occasionally caused some objects in unpublished diagrams to appear in ad-hoc reports.|
|RWP-6961||Corrects an issue that occurred during publishing, preventing model image generation from properly triggering in some situations.|
|RWP-7213||Corrects an issue that incorrectly changed published status when renaming a diagram.|
|RWP-7536||In previous versions, diagrams were incorrectly shown under ER Tools in Team Server.
Publishing is totally redesigned in ER/Studio 18.0, removing the requirement to republish diagrams when upgrading from version 16.1 or later.
Therefore, all previously published items remain in ER Tools and ER Objects.
|RWP-7566||Corrects an issue that occasionally prevented some models, submodels, and additional objects from being fully published.|
|RWP-7580||Corrects an issue that occasionally caused publishing to fail due to a social activity (streams) error.|
|RWP-7689||Corrects an issue with auto published diagrams that displayed sysadmin rather than the username who checked in the diagram.|
|RWP-7713||Improved the repository database connection verification within the Team Server/Repository configuration screens.|
|RWP-7747||Updated the behavior of the Team Server expand (+) and contract (-) buttons to be consistent with the Get Diagrams list in the repository.|
|RWP-7751||On the Publication page, the Refresh button retains the selected filters.
Filtering capability is fully redesigned in this release, with the ability to define and save complex filter criteria.
|RWP-7793||Oracle 12c R2 is certified as a deployment platform for repository and Team Server.|
|RWP-7854||Improved Team Server recognition of a locked database user profile.|
|RWP-7867||The installation and configuration of repository and Team Server is significantly enhanced.
This includes improvements to update of installation and license type from Professional Edition to Enterprise Team Edition.
|RWP-7897||Corrects an issue in which the configurator did not advance correctly due to licensing credentials.|
|RWP-7913||Corrects inconsistencies in initial vs update repository configuration for ER/Studio Professional Edition.|
|RWP-7969||Corrects behavior when checking diagrams in to ER/Studio Professional Edition repository.
In some cases, a publication synchronization error appeared even though diagram publishing is not part of the ER/Studio Professional Edition functionality.
|RWP-8021||Corrects the digital signature on the ER/Studio publishing component of the Portal interface.|
|RWP-8101||Corrects an issue that occurred when moving a domain within a data dictionary, causing an incorrect error message in Team Server.
The message states, "The object may be deleted or not synchronized yet."
|RWP-8141||DB2 is no longer supported as a Team Server/Repository hosting platform.|
|RWP-8150||In ER/Studio 18.0, the Team Server/Repository installation and configuration is completely overhauled.
This results in a much more efficient install/configuration workflow, ease of use, and much faster completion.
There is no longer a requirement to uninstall and re-install when upgrading from 16.1 or later versions. The installer now detects an existing version and upgrade in place.
Existing settings are retained and shown in the configuration screens for confirmation or changes, as required.
In previous versions, the upgrade process was time consuming in large environments, due to the previous requirement to fully republish all diagrams and workspaces.
All published diagrams and workspaces are now retained in their current published state, allowing quick resumption of normal workflow.
Going forward, publish history (with ER/Studio software version) also is retained.
|RWP-8151||ER/Studio Enterprise Team Edition publishing of models to Team Server is fully redesigned in this release.
Publishing moved to the main menu in Team Server.
In addition, there are global options for:
The ability to override auto-publish defaults at repository check-in also is incorporated.

|ERS-27824||User-modified datatype mappings not honored during SQL Import.|
|ERS-27893||Datatypes that allow either a length or no length not fully supported.|
