Yellowfin Change Log
Yellowfin BI 8.0.1 - build 20190221
Published: 21 February, 2019
Added the ability to Action a Signal. Signals can be actioned from the Signal list page or the Signal itself. Signal actions are on a per client org level.
Signal Actions are:
Owning a Signal - Signals can be assigned to a person who is shown to own the Signal. A user can assign themselves an owner or someone else can assign or reassign a person to a Signal
Sharing a Signal - Signals can be shared with other users with Signal access, and they recieve an email and a timeline alert of the Signal share - This also makes them a watcher of the Signal.
Dismiss Signal - This removes the Signal from your list of All Signals and unwatches the Signal. This is only for the one user, unlike Closing a Signal
Closed state for signals that disables most actions on the signal and removes it from searches unless using the "Closed" filter. This closes the Signal for all users.
Enhanced the Signal scoring Model to include the number of times a Signal was opened by user, the number of discussions on a Signal by user, the grouping keys for the Signals that the user is watching and which Signals a user has given a thumbs up/down.
13828 - Updated the style of the Signal List Page
13738 - Updated the style of the Signal Page UI
13867 - Added a new heat colour set (orange, grey, blue) to the chart builder, and changed the Signal analysis report charts to be follow the good/bad colours in blue or orange
13781 - Added a parameter into the Signal job config settings for choosing a separate metric which is used for pruning and relevance instead of the Signal's own base metric. If the job contains any metric fields which have a ratio calculation, or an average aggregation, then the pruning metric is mandatory because using the existing pruning/relevance calculations on those metrics doesn't make sense. Metrics which are available as pruning metrics are those which do not have a ratio or average aggregation, and are selected in the data discovery setup, and are either not present in the current job's metrics, or if they are present, the selected aggregation must be SUM.
12814 - Added an email notification to alert the user when a Signal is added to the users timeline
12536 - Added new alert on the timeline for other Signals found when running a Signal job, which then links to the Signal list page, filtering by the view used for the Signal job
