Known Issues

  • A small number of German and Japanese translations for dashboard titles may not be present.

  • Spool Information – Spool count is inaccurate.

  • Spool Monitoring – No value shown on Printing Performance chart.

  • System Overview (7.x) – Concurrent Logins not shown.

  • SAP Security Essentials – “Users with Sensitive Auth Objects” is incorrect. We will evaluate and post a fix here when available.

  • The “HANA DB Load History,“ and “HANA Config (INI) Change,“ dashboards have System selector dropdowns that show all systems. They should only allow users to select systems built on HANA databases. See the fix here.

  • The IDOC Segments Overview dashboard has two panels that will not show results regardless of the system selected. See the fix here.

  • For Splunk Cloud customers running PowerConnect Splunk app versions 7.0.0-7.2.0, please refer to Knowledge Base #173 to address a bug specific to Splunk Cloud that may prevent the Master Inventory Lookup (and potentially other KVstore-based lookups) from generating properly.
