25 + 1 techniques
Data Extract
Source Filters behind the scenes
• Definition time  AIF_BAL_RULE_PARAMS
• Run-time  AIF_BAL_RULE_LOAD_PARAMS
HFM Member Lists
• Member Lists cannot be selected in the UI
• But can be typed!
• Example: use list {ProfitAndLoss} to filter Account dimension
Essbase Member Set Functions
• Some functions are not available in the UI
• But can be also typed 
• Example: use @UDA to extract additional accounts for Budget (BSO)
Essbase Member Set Functions
• Example: use @ATTRIBUTE to extract all products with class A100
Universal Data Adapter (UDA)
• Override filter values at run-time with BefImport event script
• Example: build list of companies as parameter for UDA
Extracting data through Web Services
• Good solution for
– ERP Cloud not natively supported (DBCS, OACS, Dynamics 365…)
– On prem ERP network ≠ EPM network
– ERPs not allowing data extract through DB layer
• Secured Web Service (SOAP/REST) exposed by Source System
• Seamless integration
– FDMEE calls a WS when user clicks Import
– FDMEE custom extractor (BefImport)
– File-based behind the scenes
Extracting data through Web Services (SAP)
• The WS executes an ABAP
program to extract data
– Parameters
• Data is included in a JSON
response
• Hybrid Extract
– Only Period and Prior Period
– Merge with last file = YTD
Mappings
Mappings based on sign
• Mapping script needed
– AMOUNT for source amount
– May need to adjust the query to
check sign for totals
Cloud
Friendly
Mappings based on Target Dimension Values
• Maps can be also driven by target values
• Bridge-Lookup dimensions
– No impact on Target Application
– #SQL map to copy target values into other source dim values
– Map Lookup just after dimension to be copied
Cloud
Friendly
Mappings based on Target Dimension Values
• Example: Map HFM Product based on HFM Account and Source Product
– Copy HFM account to source lookup
– Multi-dim map using the lookup dimension
Copied thru SQL Map
Mappings based on Target Dimension Values
• Example: IFRS mapping based on Target Account
1) Account is mapped
2) Lookup dimension copies target account into source IFRS
3) IFRS is mapped
Explicit Maps as Like Maps
• Processing Order
– Mapping Type = Explicit, Between, In, Multi-dim and Like
– Mapping Rule = alphabetical of rule name for any but Explicit
• Common Use
– Exceptions = Explicit
– Generic = Like
• What if?
– Execute MD before Explicit maps
– Conditional maps before Explicit maps
• Create Explicit as Like maps 
• Drawback: like maps are executed 1 by 1 so don’t abuse
Cloud
Friendly
Explicit Maps as Like Maps
1) Conditional mapping (SQL)
2) Explicit map as Like
Explicit Maps as Like Maps
• Everything works fine until we export/import maps
– FDMEE uses */? to identify mapping type
– Maps are imported as Explicit 
• Workaround
– Define your Explicit maps as Like maps having * as trailing character
#SQL Maps using HFM Metadata
• Leverage HFM Metadata in FDMEE maps
• We can create mappings based on
– Is ICP, Is Calculated, etc.
– Top Custom Members
– HFM Parent
– Account Type
– User Defined attributes
– Entity Currency
– Anything stored in the HFM DB
#SQL Maps using HFM Metadata
Scripting
Comprehension Lists
• Construct lists in a very natural way from any iterable object
• Alternative to build lists by appending elements matching conditions
Function isBeforeFirst() to check records
• Clean way to check if Select
statement returns records
• isBeforeFirst() returns
True if the cursor is before the
first record
• If no records, it returns False
Debugging Scripts (variables)
• Using locals() and
globals() to debug
variable’s value
– locals() returns a
dictionary of the current
namespace
– globals() returns the
dictionary of the module
namespace
Sharing values between Event Scripts
• AIF_PROCESS_LOGS table as temporary repository (APIs)
• Can also use Python modules like pickle (persistency)
Environment based Code
• Avoid different scripts across
environments (hardcoding)
• Map object (Dictionary) for code
based on FDMEE server
• Python module socket
• Same values as typing hostname
in the command line
Merging Source Files
• Python module shutil
• Write chunks to avoid big files into memory
Create HTML document for your Scripts
• Python module pydoc
– Nice look and feel HTML
– Command line
EPM Apps
Java and Web Service APIs (11.1.2.4)
Product JAVA Web Service
Planning No REST
Essbase/Provider Services Yes SOAP
LCM Yes No
FDMEE Yes* REST (PSU210)
HFM Yes REST*
DRM/DRG No SOAP/REST
HPCM No REST
Others CSS, OLU… NA
Cloud Services No REST
Using Essbase JAPI from FDMEE
• Library ess_japi.jar
– Validate target members
– Run calculation scripts before data is extracted
– Run Maxl scripts
– Get/Set substitution variables
– Refresh outline
– Among others
Running Maxl with Essbase JAPI
1) Import ess_japi.jar into Jython sys.path
2) Import Essbase JAPI Classes
3) Initialize JAPI instance
4) Sign-on to the Provider
5) Open Maxl Session
6) Execute Maxl Statement
7) Parse results
Using HFM Adapter API and HFM JAPI
• What can it be used for?
– Run Force Translate before data is extracted
– Run custom intersection check process
– Run custom consolidation processes (custom logic, period range…)
– Extract Cell Texts
• The HFM adapter comes with set of .py files (HFM_VALIDATE, …)
– Wrapper for HFM JAPI
– Can use functions in your custom code (not supported)
Translate HFM data before extracting
• Translate data for base entities with non AUD currency to level AUD Total
• Getting the Base Entities
– Function to get base entities with their currencies
– Get entities with currency other than AUD
Translate HFM data before extracting
• Getting Periods to be translated
– Periods being extracted from HFM
Translate HFM data before extracting
• Translating data with HFM Adapter API functions
– Have a glance at HFM_CONSOLIDATE.py
– Optionally insert a new entry in AIF_PROCESS_DETAILS
Automation
File Watcher
• FDMEE doesn’t have file watching capabilities yet
• Run Open Batch to capture files
• Execute the open batch only when there are files?
– Build your own File Watcher (Batch, Power Shell, Control-M, etc.)
– REST API (210+) or batch utility (runbatch)
– Can be scheduled with no impact on FDMEE
FDMEE
Open batchFile(s) found
Wait for
File(s)
File Watcher
1) Check files with open batch
naming convention
2) Move them to open batch
folder
3) Execute the open batch
through REST
• REST API for FDMEE is not
supported in On-premises
Enhancing the Standard Scheduler
• Running a DLR/batch/script every 5 minutes during x days?
• ODI offers more options that can be leveraged
– Period range
– Repeating cycle
– Etc.
Enhancing the standard Scheduler
• Create custom scheduling
Enhancing the standard Scheduler
• Deleting individual scheduling?
• Custom script to delete individual
schedule created
Email Notifications
• Not coming OOTB
• Automated Process
– Batch Results
– Unmapped Members
– Invalid Intersections
– Load Errors
Email Notifications – Intersection Check Report
• FDMEE  PDF Report OOTB
• Custom FDMEE  Send an HTML report with FDM Classic look & feel
Bonus Track
Multi Period/Scenario loads through single POV
• Multi-Period
– Requires process data through multiple POVs
– Ex: Anaplan Forecast File (5 Years) to HFM
• Multi-Scenario
– Requires multiple DLRs
– Ex: Planning (2 Scenarios) to Planning
• There is a way in FDMEE …if Drill-through is not required
Multi Period/Scenario loads through Single POV
• Lookup Dimension
– Import Period/Scenario
into Lookup
– Map for Lookup
• View AIF_HS_BALANCES
– Export Period/Scenario
from Lookup rather
than POV mapping
tables
Dynamic Validation Entity Groups
• Consolidate might fail due to non
existing HFM entities in the
Validation Entity Group
• Populate the group dynamically
based on Entities being loaded
• Can be enhanced with Parent
Entity taken from HFM hierarchy
Non-Blocking Intersection Check Report
• Standard Intersection Check Report
– Optional validation for HFM data loads
– PDF report
– Validate fails if there are invalid intersections
– Cannot load data until all errors are fixed (source/maps/targets)
– Partial loads if disabled (Errors are logged)
• Non-Blocking Intersection Check Report
– Validate doesn’t fail (only for mapping errors)
– Invalid intersections are flagged as IGNORE
– No errors when loading (only technical)
– Log invalid intersections and related source data
Non-Blocking Intersection Check Report
• Validate Passes
• Filter Ignored Data
• Can be easily filtered (INV_)
• Mappings applied can be logged
Replacing Source Filename on the fly
• How can I manually import an XML file?
• You select the file, the BefImport event script will do the rest
– Transform XML to CSV
– Update FDMEE DB Tables with new filename
• Import Format for CSV file
Custom Applications for Admin Purposes
• Standard functionality  generate a flat file for external systems
– Loading Exchange Rates into Planning/PBCS (Hybrid)
– Create write-back files for SAP BPC
Custom Applications for Admin Purposes
• Putting some creativeness on it, we can store
– Location owner’s email
– Output format for other custom target applications
– Parameters for our custom process
– …
Custom Applications for Admin Purposes
• Example: output format to export FDMEE data as SAP report files
REST API for FDMEE
• Introduced for DM in the Cloud
– Run DLRs/Batches
– Import/Export Maps
– Run Custom Scripts/Reports
– Refresh Application Dimensions
– Etc.
• PSU210+ introduced REST APIs for on-prem (not supported)
• REST allows external systems to launch FDMEE jobs
– EPM Automate/Groovy/PowerShell…

  • 6. A little bit about me • Data Integration Specialist • 10 years in Hyperion World • 4th Kscope as a Presenter • Link functional & technical • FDMEE Blogger and Trainer – fishing with FDMEE
  • 7. My Goal for today… I’d like you to be that kid and learn something new today
  • 8. What Black Belt means? • What guides don’t show • Building solutions – Creativeness – Extended Product Knowledge
  • 9. • Data Extract (4) • Mappings (4) • Jython Scripting (7) • Integration with EPM Apps (2) • Automation & Scheduling (3) • Bonus Track (5+1) 25 + 1 techniques
  • 11. Source Filters behind the scenes • Definition time  AIF_BAL_RULE_PARAMS • Run-time  AIF_BAL_RULE_LOAD_PARAMS
  • 12. HFM Member Lists • Member Lists cannot be selected in the UI • But can be typed! • Example: use list {ProfitAndLoss} to filter Account dimension
  • 13. Essbase Member Set Functions • Some functions are not available in the UI • But can be also typed  • Example: use @UDA to extract additional accounts for Budget (BSO)
  • 14. Essbase Member Set Functions • Example: use @ATTRIBUTE to extract all products with class A100
  • 15. Universal Data Adapter (UDA) • Override filter values at run-time with BefImport event script • Example: build list of companies as parameter for UDA
  • 16. Extracting data through Web Services • Good solution for – ERP Cloud not natively supported (DBCS, OACS, Dynamics 365…) – On prem ERP network ≠ EPM network – ERPs not allowing data extract through DB layer • Secured Web Service (SOAP/REST) exposed by Source System • Seamless integration – FDMEE calls a WS when user clicks Import – FDMEE custom extractor (BefImport) – File-based behind the scenes
  • 17. Extracting data through Web Services (SAP) • The WS executes an ABAP program to extract data – Parameters • Data is included in a JSON response • Hybrid Extract – Only Period and Prior Period – Merge with last file = YTD
  • 19. Mappings based on sign • Mapping script needed – AMOUNT for source amount – May need to adjust the query to check sign for totals Cloud Friendly
  • 20. Mappings based on Target Dimension Values • Maps can be also driven by target values • Bridge-Lookup dimensions – No impact on Target Application – #SQL map to copy target values into other source dim values – Map Lookup just after dimension to be copied Cloud Friendly
  • 21. Mappings based on Target Dimension Values • Example: Map HFM Product based on HFM Account and Source Product – Copy HFM account to source lookup – Multi-dim map using the lookup dimension Copied thru SQL Map
  • 22. Mappings based on Target Dimension Values • Example: IFRS mapping based on Target Account 1) Account is mapped 2) Lookup dimension copies target account into source IFRS 3) IFRS is mapped
  • 23. Explicit Maps as Like Maps • Processing Order – Mapping Type = Explicit, Between, In, Multi-dim and Like – Mapping Rule = alphabetical of rule name for any but Explicit • Common Use – Exceptions = Explicit – Generic = Like • What if? – Execute MD before Explicit maps – Conditional maps before Explicit maps • Create Explicit as Like maps  • Drawback: like maps are executed 1 by 1 so don’t abuse Cloud Friendly
  • 24. Explicit Maps as Like Maps 1) Conditional mapping (SQL) 2) Explicit map as Like
  • 25. Explicit Maps as Like Maps • Everything works fine until we export/import maps – FDMEE uses */? to identify mapping type – Maps are imported as Explicit  • Workaround – Define your Explicit maps as Like maps having * as trailing character
  • 26. #SQL Maps using HFM Metadata • Leverage HFM Metadata in FDMEE maps • We can create mappings based on – Is ICP, Is Calculated, etc. – Top Custom Members – HFM Parent – Account Type – User Defined attributes – Entity Currency – Anything stored in the HFM DB
  • 27. #SQL Maps using HFM Metadata
  • 29. Comprehension Lists • Construct lists in a very natural way from any iterable object • Alternative to build lists by appending elements matching conditions
  • 30. Function isBeforeFirst() to check records • Clean way to check if Select statement returns records • isBeforeFirst() returns True if the cursor is before the first record • If no records, it returns False
  • 31. Debugging Scripts (variables) • Using locals() and globals() to debug variable’s value – locals() returns a dictionary of the current namespace – globals() returns the dictionary of the module namespace
  • 32. Sharing values between Event Scripts • AIF_PROCESS_LOGS table as temporary repository (APIs) • Can also use Python modules like pickle (persistency)
  • 33. Environment based Code • Avoid different scripts across environments (hardcoding) • Map object (Dictionary) for code based on FDMEE server • Python module socket • Same values as typing hostname in the command line
  • 34. Merging Source Files • Python module shutil • Write chunks to avoid big files into memory
  • 35. Create HTML document for your Scripts • Python module pydoc – Nice look and feel HTML – Command line
  • 37. Java and Web Service APIs (11.1.2.4) Product JAVA Web Service Planning No REST Essbase/Provider Services Yes SOAP LCM Yes No FDMEE Yes* REST (PSU210) HFM Yes REST* DRM/DRG No SOAP/REST HPCM No REST Others CSS, OLU… NA Cloud Services No REST
  • 38. Using Essbase JAPI from FDMEE • Library ess_japi.jar – Validate target members – Run calculation scripts before data is extracted – Run Maxl scripts – Get/Set substitution variables – Refresh outline – Among others
  • 39. Running Maxl with Essbase JAPI 1) Import ess_japi.jar into Jython sys.path 2) Import Essbase JAPI Classes 3) Initialize JAPI instance 4) Sign-on to the Provider 5) Open Maxl Session 6) Execute Maxl Statement 7) Parse results
  • 40. Using HFM Adapter API and HFM JAPI • What can it be used for? – Run Force Translate before data is extracted – Run custom intersection check process – Run custom consolidation processes (custom logic, period range…) – Extract Cell Texts • The HFM adapter comes with set of .py files (HFM_VALIDATE, …) – Wrapper for HFM JAPI – Can use functions in your custom code (not supported)
  • 41. Translate HFM data before extracting • Translate data for base entities with non AUD currency to level AUD Total • Getting the Base Entities – Function to get base entities with their currencies – Get entities with currency other than AUD
  • 42. Translate HFM data before extracting • Getting Periods to be translated – Periods being extracted from HFM
  • 43. Translate HFM data before extracting • Translating data with HFM Adapter API functions – Have a glance at HFM_CONSOLIDATE.py – Optionally insert a new entry in AIF_PROCESS_DETAILS
  • 45. File Watcher • FDMEE doesn’t have file watching capabilities yet • Run Open Batch to capture files • Execute the open batch only when there are files? – Build your own File Watcher (Batch, Power Shell, Control-M, etc.) – REST API (210+) or batch utility (runbatch) – Can be scheduled with no impact on FDMEE FDMEE Open batchFile(s) found Wait for File(s)
  • 46. File Watcher 1) Check files with open batch naming convention 2) Move them to open batch folder 3) Execute the open batch through REST • REST API for FDMEE is not supported in On-premises
  • 47. Enhancing the Standard Scheduler • Running a DLR/batch/script every 5 minutes during x days? • ODI offers more options that can be leveraged – Period range – Repeating cycle – Etc.
  • 48. Enhancing the standard Scheduler • Create custom scheduling
  • 49. Enhancing the standard Scheduler • Deleting individual scheduling? • Custom script to delete individual schedule created
  • 50. Email Notifications • Not coming OOTB • Automated Process – Batch Results – Unmapped Members – Invalid Intersections – Load Errors
  • 51. Email Notifications – Intersection Check Report • FDMEE  PDF Report OOTB • Custom FDMEE  Send an HTML report with FDM Classic look & feel
  • 53. Multi Period/Scenario loads through single POV • Multi-Period – Requires process data through multiple POVs – Ex: Anaplan Forecast File (5 Years) to HFM • Multi-Scenario – Requires multiple DLRs – Ex: Planning (2 Scenarios) to Planning • There is a way in FDMEE …if Drill-through is not required
  • 54. Multi Period/Scenario loads through Single POV • Lookup Dimension – Import Period/Scenario into Lookup – Map for Lookup • View AIF_HS_BALANCES – Export Period/Scenario from Lookup rather than POV mapping tables
  • 55. Dynamic Validation Entity Groups • Consolidate might fail due to non existing HFM entities in the Validation Entity Group • Populate the group dynamically based on Entities being loaded • Can be enhanced with Parent Entity taken from HFM hierarchy
  • 56. Non-Blocking Intersection Check Report • Standard Intersection Check Report – Optional validation for HFM data loads – PDF report – Validate fails if there are invalid intersections – Cannot load data until all errors are fixed (source/maps/targets) – Partial loads if disabled (Errors are logged) • Non-Blocking Intersection Check Report – Validate doesn’t fail (only for mapping errors) – Invalid intersections are flagged as IGNORE – No errors when loading (only technical) – Log invalid intersections and related source data
  • 57. Non-Blocking Intersection Check Report • Validate Passes • Filter Ignored Data • Can be easily filtered (INV_) • Mappings applied can be logged
  • 58. Replacing Source Filename on the fly • How can I manually import an XML file? • You select the file, the BefImport event script will do the rest – Transform XML to CSV – Update FDMEE DB Tables with new filename • Import Format for CSV file
  • 59. Custom Applications for Admin Purposes • Standard functionality  generate a flat file for external systems – Loading Exchange Rates into Planning/PBCS (Hybrid) – Create write-back files for SAP BPC
  • 60. Custom Applications for Admin Purposes • Putting some creativeness on it, we can store – Location owner’s email – Output format for other custom target applications – Parameters for our custom process – …
  • 61. Custom Applications for Admin Purposes • Example: output format to export FDMEE data as SAP report files
  • 62. REST API for FDMEE • Introduced for DM in the Cloud – Run DLRs/Batches – Import/Export Maps – Run Custom Scripts/Reports – Refresh Application Dimensions – Etc. • PSU210+ introduced REST APIs for on-prem (not supported) • REST allows external systems to launch FDMEE jobs – EPM Automate/Groovy/PowerShell… Cloud Friendly
