ARCS New Features

New EPM Automate Utility Version

A new version of the EPM Automate Utility is available with this update. This version includes the renameSnapshot, which enables you to rename a snapshot available in an environment to prevent the maintenance process from overwriting it. Customers who have small applications can use this command to archive snapshots in the environment subject to snapshot retention policies.

This version also includes updates to the rundailyMaintenance command, which has been enhanced to take skipNext as a new optional parameter. This parameter allows you to skip the next occurrence of the daily maintenance process. Use this parameter to prevent the daily maintenance process from interfering with long running ad hoc processes of unknown duration that you execute in an environment.

Additionally, the runcalc command has been updated with the DATA_POV_NAME optional parameter, which enables you to run Profitability and Cost Management Cloud calculations using rules in a model POV against data in a different data POV without copying rules.


Considerations

Academy

In the Academy, some pages and icons may appear different in the video and the Cloud service.

Using Refresh

It is a best practice to use Refresh within the ARCS user interface rather than performing a browser refresh.
