Pulse includes automatic source control and change tracking as one of its core features. All changes in your TM1 or Cognos Expess system can now be automatically logged to the internal Pulse source repository. These changes are identified by author, the person who made the change or executed the change via a Turbo Integrator process or chore, as well as the exact time the change occurred.
Knowing this information is paradigm shift for TM1 developers and administrators, it means that you can:
- Identify changes over a given time frame or by user. This means you KNOW what to promote to your production environment using Pulse Migration. No more guessing, looking at date stamps or change log spreadsheets.
- Identify changes not only in rules and processes but also cube structure, dimensions and dimension data (elements and attributes).
- Use the built in diff tools to identify the lines of code that have been changed.
- Export snapshots of the state of your system at any point of time.
