Configure the amount of rows and columns in a websheet that completely fetch on loading

Planning Analytics 2.0.5
Microsoft Windows 2016 server

How change the number of columns shown and loaded in tm1web?

Suggested Solution:
Update the file tm1web_config.xml, that are in folder
C:\Program Files\ibm\cognos\tm1_64\webapps\tm1web\WEB-INF\configuration on the TM1WEB server.
Change below lines to a number that works for your application:

<!– CubeViewerRowPageSize: Number of rows to fetch in a page of cubeviewer –>
<add key=”CubeViewerRowPageSize” value=”250″ />
<!– CubeViewerColumnPageSize: Number of columns to fetch in a page of cubeviewer –>
<add key=”CubeViewerColumnPageSize” value=”100″ />

In TM1 10.2 FP1 two settings, controls the number of columns and rows that are loaded in TM1 Web Websheets,
WebsheetRowThreshold and WebsheetColumnThreshold.

In the documentation for Planning Analytics 2.0 these settings are not found, instead you find settings CubeViewerRowPageSize and CubeViewerColumnPageSize.

The do not have WebsheetRowThreshold and WebsheetColumnThreshold settings.

The old parameters can configure the amount of rows and columns in a websheet that completely fetch on loading. If the sheet fits roughly within the number of rows and columns specified with the new parameters, it will be fully loaded on start up.
If a sheet is larger than the values set with the parameters, then Cognos TM1 Web fetches additional data on demand as you scroll beyond the buffers of the previously loaded data.

New Planning Analytics have a better TM1WEB solution, and will cache values different, and above old parameters should not be needed for new TM1WEB.

The parameters in this file, tm1web_config.xml, control the following IBM TM1 Web features.

  • View node
    Cube Viewer page size
    Number of sheets to export from a Cube Viewer
    IBM TM1 Web startup and appearance settings
    Session timeouts
