At the time of publication, the following problems were known:
Table 1. Analyst's Notebook Premium - Opal connector
Problem Description
Selected Charting Scheme is not updated When a change to the charting scheme is applied and then that change is undone, the styling changes are reversed on the chart surface, but the Charting Scheme selection remains unchanged.
Search results cannot be added to a chart If you attempt to add the results of a search to a chart when the search results are no longer cached on the server, you see the following message: Failed to copy records to the chart. To copy the results, run the search again.
Zoom level set to greater than 100% might cause blurring If the operating system zoom level is set to more than 100%, some of the text and symbols in Analyst's Notebook Premium might appear blurred.
Searching might become unavailable or fail in some circumstances In Analyst's Notebook Premium, if a search fails to complete or searching become unavailable, you are required to log in again.
Login prompt appears in a single sign-on environment In some situations, users are prompted to log in even when they are in a single sign-on environment.
Analyst's Notebook Premium can operate incorrectly because of client security settings Client security settings might prevent the correct operation of Analyst's Notebook Premium. Analyst's Notebook Premium might request confirmation that the connections are safe.
Chromium Embedded Framework (CEF) version incompatibility can cause errors in third party plug-ins. Within an application process the CEF component is a singleton and as such can only be initialized once. Third party plug-ins that depend on a different version to the version running within the Analyst's Notebook Premium process might experience errors. To avoid these errors, use the same version of CEF contained in Analyst’s Notebook Premium and check whether CEF is already running before starting your plug-in.
Table 2. i2 Analyze - Opal services
Problem Description
Searches can stop running after i2 Analyze is restarted If the WebSphere® Liberty Application Server is restarted while searches are running, the search might time out. To prevent this issue, ensure that the HTTP server is restarted when you restart the Application Server.
