Mobile

Default File and Landing Tab for the Android App

Last release, we announced that the SAP Analytics Cloud mobile application could support iOS 14. This time, we are happy to announce that SAP Analytics Cloud can also run on Android 11. Furthermore, you can now specify which landing tab and story you would like to open by default when you initially launch and log in to the Android app.

As a result, from now on, users can avoid the same steps required to navigate upon logging in – simply open the Android app, and you will instantly be brought to your desired page.

Modeling

Overwrite Formulas Used in Public Account Dimensions

With this next new update, you can now overwrite formulas located in models and used in public account dimensions without affecting other models that are based on those same public account dimensions.

This means users can customize account members in one model without having to worry about making undetected changes to other models. In addition, the Modeler UI now indicates the differentiation between the non-model-specific formulas and the model-specific formulas so that users can detect the difference every time.

APIs and Extensions for Developers

SCIM API – Remove Sensitive Data from URLs

A new POST endpoint for searching users has been added to the SCIM API. This API allows consumers to pass in search data such as usernames and email addresses in the POST request body. This addresses privacy concerns where personal identifiable information was being passed in the URLs as query parameters.

For more information on this topic, visit the SCIM section of our Help Portal.
