March 23, 2020 – Advisory: The UpdatePlan for all cubes and cube groups is set to be Manual instead of BuildSynch

InterSystems has corrected a defect affecting the UpdatePlan setting and how often all cubes are built and synchronized.

This problem exists for:

  • HealthShare Health Insight customers upgrading from 15.03 to 2018.1 or above.

When a Health Insight customer is upgrading from Health Insight version 15.03 to a later version of Health Insight, the Cube Registry UpdatePlan should be set to “Manual”, which allows Health Insight to manage cube updates during and after the upgrade process.

However, if the HSAA.CubeRegistry has all of the cubes using a “BuildSynch” UpdatePlan, when the Registry is activated (either by a user or as one of the Upgrade Steps), a task will be created that schedules all cubes to be built once per week and synchronized once per day, which does not allow Health Insight to manage updates.

Setting the Cube Registry UpdatePlan to “Manual” resolves this issue.

Starting with version Health Insight 2019.1.2, the UpdatePlan for all cube groups and cubes in Health Insight is correctly set to Manual.

The correction for this defect is identified as HSHI-3350 and will be included in all future product releases. It is also available via Ad hoc change file (patch) or full kit distribution from the Worldwide Response Center (WRC).
