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).
  • 308086: Syncfusion JS2 update.
  • 307975: Data grid presentation objects and datasets have been removed.
  • 307974: Remove HTML presentation objects have been removed.
  • 308073: Create presentation object types for all HTML presentation objects used in system views - part 2.
  • 308077: Translation updates for PA release 2021.1.
  • 307652: Remove QPR Connector.
  • 307709: Remove most of Excel client functionality and support of Xpress.
  • 308039: Web API for terminating operations.
  • 308046: Web API for copying datatable.
  • 308051: Data type conversions have been improved for SAP import.
  • 308105: Copyright information update to 2021.
  • 308063: SmtpFromAddress setting for sending email.
  • 307368 & 308084: Business calendar for duration calculation.
  • 307565: Expression filter rule improvements for comparing numerical values.
  • 307990: Email notifications part 1.
  • 308071: Conformance analysis performance improvements.
  • 308080: IIS configurations for .po and .woff2 files.

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. This may have caused considerable performance degradation in environments where large models are loaded manually by users.

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" />.

Features:

  • 307071: User management is available in the Web UI.
  • 308038: Database tables related to the legacy model data structures are removed from the database.
  • 308028: PAPO is changed to a component containing the Flowchart only that does not contain any other analyses.

Fixed issues:

  • 308058: Roll back improvement of model statistics calculation (307988) which inadvertently changed the Excel client protocol.

QPR ProcessAnalyzer 2020.7 (build 36) (released 2020-10-13)

Notes:

Known issue: QPR ProcessAnalyzer 2020.7.1 is not compatible with Excel Client 2020.7, even though the Excel Client protocol version hasn't changed. To resolve the issue, update Excel Client to 2020.7.1.

Features:

  • 308036: Default values of chart margins have been adjusted, and there is a dashed line helping aligning charts.

  • 219509: Event types is empty after ResetModelCache.

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.

Features:

  • 308003: Filter rules can be turned off.

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.

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.
  • 307880: When a datatable model is moved to another project, the linked datatables should also be moved to the project.
  • 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.

  • 307888: Error message text changes for Dashboard not found and Multiple dashboards found.
  • 307874 & 307887: ChartView and main header has been improved.

Fixed bugs:

  • 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.
