Is there any dimension audit functionality where I can get the list of new elements added into a dimension after a load dimension TI is run? Thank you.
You can activate the “Source Level” Tracking for Dimension (Under Administration\SourceLevel), then you will be able to check the changes at element level in Change Tracking.
Pulse by default will only document 5000 elements, you can change this settings in Pulse.cfg, by changing the “MaximumElements” parameter.
Many thanks, Erik @ecarmona. Very much appreciate your prompt reply.
We will try to activate the “Source Level” Tracking for Dimension.
For all the Pulse instances, I have activated them all by default, do you think there would be any concern doing that?
The reason I am doing that is because during migration, if I am not turning them on, I would have elements missing during migration.
There are 3 main things to consider, Firstly is the disk space, this is not a main concern , but keep in mind that it will increase slightly and in proportion to the number of changes performed in a dimension, the VCS will save every change at element level of a dimension as a commit,. Secondly, Documentation will take longer to execute and thirdly Increasing the “MaximumElements” value to something very Big, may cause Pulse to run out of memory if it is a very large value so this latter use with caution.
i have the same issue when Pulse migration sometimes misses elements during execution (live package).
Is turning on source level control the only way to fix it?
i may need to change the max element number to 15000, i hope that won’t cause any other issue.
I have turned that on regardless unless we are really hitting performance issue or whatever funny issue, turning that on give me better comfort as I would have the dimension to be audited, a lot of time this is very useful information for forensic and migration purpose.
