.....................
Short Description: [GRIDX] APPLY QUICK FILTER AT BOTTOM OF EVENTLIST WITH LOCK
COLUMNS FEATURE TURNED ON CAUSE EVENT VIEWER ACT ABNORMAL

Summary:
Issue replication:

1) Turn on Lock Columns feature in Event Viewer preferences.
2) Load Event Viewer with around 1000 alerts.
3) Scroll down to the bottom of the table.
4) Apply Quick filter.

Issue result:

EventList will act abnormal. Some rows are blank and some
columns are miss-aligned. On next auto-refresh, the EventList
will be reloaded and jumped to the top of EventList.

Workaround:
1) Don't use Quick Filter while user at the lower half of the EventList table with Lock Columns feature turned on.
2) Or turn off the Lock Columns feature. By default, the Lock Columns feature is turned off.



alm00323035 / IV85638
.....................
Short Description: VIEW BUILDER COLUMN'S TITLE CONVERSION PROBLEM WITH &

Summary:
Issue replication:
1) Open view builder, create a new global view "TestView", for Serial column, modify column title to "Test&", save.
2) Re-open "TestView", at Serial column, verify now the column title converted to "Test&", this is correct.
3) Without modify anything, click Save button.
4) Re-open "TestView" again, at Serial column, now the value of & at column title double converted and become 'Test&". This is wrong.
5) Repeat step4 and step5, you will notice that the column title repeatedly applied the conversion on the & so the column title with & will keep appending with amp;

Expected behavior:
Do not let the title keep growing when title containing & and when the view being re-save.

Workaround:
None


alm00323037 / IV85640
.....................
Short Description: CONVERSION FIELDS SHOULD DISPLAY WITH CONVERSION VALUE DURING WATCH LIST CREATION

Summary:
Conversion fields (eg: FirstOccurrence, Severity) should display with conversion value during watch list creation,
currently there are not.

Issue replication:
1) Enable Event Viewer to "Show Watch List Filters" Steps:
Open event viewer -> edit page -> tick "Show Watch List Filters", save.

2) At Event Viewer, right click any event, select "Create Watch List..."
3) play with criteria selection

Current behavior:
When tick on Conversion field, eg: Severity, FirstOccurrence
fields, values displayed as code instead of its conversion
value.

Expected behavior:
Conversion fields should display as conversion value through
system included page in "Add Watch List" and "Watch list
creation"

Workaround:
None


Issues and Enhancements addressed in 8.1.0.6 FP6 and Netcool Operations Insight 1.4.0.2
====================================================================

1 Enhancements
------------------

alm00323098 / IV85850
.....................
Short Description: NEW LIGHTWEIGHT EVENT DASHBOARD FEATURE IN WEB GUI BASE OFFERING

Summary:
OMNIbus Web GUI has been enhanced to provide a lightweight alternative to the existing
Event Dashboard.

The existing Event Dashboard uses a Java applet when viewing the dashboard, and also
when an administrator is editing the portlet preferences of a dashboard. The new
lightweight feature allows operators to view a dashboard, and administrators to create
and edit a dashboard without the need for Java applets.

Lightweight mode is enabled via settings in the Web GUI server.init file.


alm00323100 / IV85851
.....................
Short Description: IBM DESIGN LANGUAGE THEME SUPPORT FOR WEB GUI VISUALISATIONS

Summary:
The following visualisations in OMNIbus Web GUI now support the IBM Design Language theme in DASH:

- Event Viewer
- Lightweight Event Dashboard
- Lightweight Map


alm00323102 / IV85831
.....................
Short Description: ENHANCEMENTS TO EVENT ANALYTICS CAPABILITY IN WEB GUI EXTENSION OFFERING

Summary:
Netcool Operations Insight Extensions for IBM Tivoli Netcool/OMNIbus Web GUI has been enhanced to
provide the 3 main features.
- Suggested Event Patterns
When the administrator runs the configuration, it automatically
performs analytical processing on the data and comes up with a list of suggested patterns and shows
up in the View Related Events Portlet which can then be verified and deployed
- Export Capability
It is now possible to export the list of Seasonal Events,
Seasonal Event Graphs, Related Event Groups and the test result of the Event Pattern to be exported to the
spreadsheet which can then be passed over to the SME for validation
- Regular Expression support for Event Pattern Resources
In cases where customers have unstructed data and the resource
information cannot be identified as one of the event field, due to the fact that the resource
information is embedded with some other text in some other event field, regular expression can be used to
identify and match the resources for pattern creation


2. Issues

alm00321695 / IV81829
.....................
Short Description: WHEN PERFORMING A RIGHT-CLICK ON AN EVENT WHICH HAS NOT BEEN SELECTED THE EVENT IS NOT SELECTED AS IT WAS WITH THE AEL

Summary:
In Event Viewer, when right click on non-selected event,
event not automatically selected like AEL.


alm00321831 / IV82039
.....................
Short Description: EVENT VIEWER'S LOCK COLUMN SETTING CAUSE COLUMN TITLE GROWING HIGHER AFTER EACH AUTO REFRESH (IE ONLY)

Summary:
Event viewer Columns title Height growing higher after each auto refresh (IE Only) and only when Column Locking is enabled.


alm00321909 / IV82605
.....................
Short Description: EVENT VIEWER GRIDX ISSUE AFTER LOCKED COLUMN - COLUMN NOT FULLY VISIBLE AFTER LEFT CLICK ON LEFT OR RIGHT MOST

Summary:
Event Viewer GridX issue after Locked Column - column not
fully visible after left click on the half visible left or
right most column.


alm00322114 / IV82921
.....................
Short Description: TOOLS MENU IN EVENTVIEWER NOT SHOWN PROPERLY IN WEBGUI 8.1

Summary:
1) The Event Viewer context menu was not fully displayed
when the right-click was executed at the bottom of the Event
List (i.e. at bottom of the page). This only happen on the
first right-click execution. The 2nd execution will paint
the context menu correctly (i.e. fully showed).

2) This APAR also fixed the unwanted vertical scroll bar
visible on context menu when user maximized the browser.


alm00322075 / IV82928
.....................
Short Description: PAGE WITH AEL WIDGET, WHEN OPEN PAGE DOES NOT STAY AT TOP OF THE PAGE

Summary:
User configured 2 AELs in a page. One at the top while the
2nd at the bottom hidden out from the page (require scroll
down to the 2nd AEL). When user open the page, the page will
auto scrolled and focus to the 2nd AEL instead of the 1st.


alm00322392 / IV83763
.....................
Short Description: WEB GUI OBJECTS (FILTERS, VIEWS) SOMETIMES DELETED WHEN DASH IS PUT INTO HA AFTER THE DB2 DB HAS BEEN REBUILT

Summary:
Under certain conditions, (e.g. slow networking between Web
GUI and DB2, especially during a synchronization of all
configuration items), the Web GUI's JPA client
implementation will leak connections upon Web GUI start-up.
This has a side-effect of not syncing some configuration
items (views, filters, etc.) properly, thus leaving the
given Web GUI in an unpredictable state.


alm00322451 / IV83982
.....................
Short Description: EVENT VIEWER HANGS FOR FEW SECONDS WHEN SELECTED LARGE NUMBER OF EVENTS 1K

Summary:
Event Viewer hangs for few seconds when large number of
events were selected (i.e. 1k)


alm00322472 / IV83998
.....................
Short Description: EVENT VIEWER'S LOCK COLUMN SETTING CAUSE COLUMN TITLE GROWING HIGHER AFTER EACH AUTO REFRESH (IE ONLY)

Summary:
Event viewer Columns title Height growing higher after each auto refresh (IE Only) and only when Column Locking is enabled.


alm00322619 / IV84185
.....................
Short Description: THE "ALL" VS "ANY" LOGIC IN TOOL DEFINITION FORMS DOES NOT DISTINGUISH BETWEEN TOP LEVEL AND NESTED CONDITIONS

Summary:
The fix introduced by APAR IV83183 has a known regression.
As it enforces the "ALL" boolean operator for all access
criteria and all multiple values, it fixes an issue where
the "!=" operator would not be applied to all values in
conjunction with the "ALL" boolean operator.
However, with the "=" equality operator, that fix would
evaluate all values with "ALL", which does not make sense
since a given event will only have one value.

This fix enforces the exception above: if an access
criterion uses "ALL" and "=", multiple values will be
treated with the "ANY" boolean operator.


alm00322720 / IV84592
.....................
Short Description: [DOC] INCORRECT INFORMATION ABOUT THE TOOL CONFIG USED IN AEL

Summary:
Missing explanation of Tool Configuration behavior in
relation to Access Criteria, multiple fields, and operator
selections.

Documentation updated >> step 10 >> Note.

alm00322757 / IV84639
.....................
Short Description: TOOLS MENU IN EVENTVIEWER NOT SHOWN PROPERLY IN WEBGUI 8.1

Summary:
1) The Event Viewer context menu was not fully displayed
when the right-click was executed at the bottom of the Event
List (i.e. at bottom of the page). This only happen on the
first right-click execution. The 2nd execution will paint
the context menu correctly (i.e. fully showed).

2) This APAR also fixed the unwanted vertical scroll bar
visible on context menu when user maximized the browser.


alm00322753 / IV84701
.....................
Short Description: LAUNCHING TOOL IN EVENT VIEWER OF AN INVALIDATED SESSION

Summary:
If DASH is killed and restarted while an Event Viewer is
open in an existing session, it is possible to click to
launch a tool in the invalidated session and the pop-up
window redirects to the login screen instead of the original
window. Depending upon the nature of the pop-up, it can be
possible to navigate within the new window.


alm00322776 / IV84756
.....................
Short Description: WEBGUI THROW NULLPOINTEREXCEPTION :SRVE0014E: UNCAUGHT SERVICE JAVA.LANG.NULLPOINTEREXCEPTION

Summary:
NullPointerException by MapBox.getTransientMapName() when
user login to DASH.


alm00322805 / IV84877

alm00322950 / IV85269
.....................
Short Description: FAIL TO CREATE QUICK FILTER ON DATETIME FIELD DUE TO NONE DEFAULT ROOT CONTEXT

Summary:
User prompted with "Failed to get local display time from
server" when user try to create Quick Filter on DateTime
fields. Issue only happen when WebGUI installed with none
default root context. The issue is due to WebGUI creating
request on default root context (i.e. /ibm/console) instead
of configured root context.


alm00323058 / IV85792
.....................
Short Description: SEVERITY ICONS OR IMAGES DO NOT DISPLAY IN EVENT VIEWER

Summary:
The severity icons do not display properly in the Event
Viewer, when DASH is installed using a custom context path.
Instead, the Event Viewer shows a placeholder indicating a
missing resource.


alm00322080 / IV82872
.....................
Short Description: WEBGUI 8.1 EVENT VIEWER: ERROR 404 IS DISPLAYED WHEN USER CLICKS ON TOOLS MENU

Summary:
Error 404 reported by Event Viewer when user does not use
the Event Viewer for about 30 minutes. The issue is due to
the previous selected alert was "cleared" that have been
removed from the Event List.


alm00322361 / IV83727
.....................
Short Description: LIGHTWEIGHT MAP NOT SHOWING THE CORRECT COLOR

Summary:
Lightweight map defaulted to "rgb(0,205,0)" when active
button counter is 0 and maplet.noeventcolor not set.


alm00322169 / IV83134
.....................
Short Description: NON-ADMIN USER CAN MODIFY GLOBAL VIEW EVEN THOUGH USERS.GLOBAL.VIEW.MODE IS 0

Summary:
There is a narrow security issue, where a non-administrative
user (with no "ncw_admin" role) can be made able to edit a
global view, even if the "users.global.view.mode" property
is set to 0 in the "server.init" file (it does default to 1).

When the "users.global.view.mode" property is set to 0 ,
non-administrative users are not supposed to be able to edit
and save global views.

However, due to an error in the conversion of the view type
in the editor forms, there is a way for a non-administrative
user to edit a global view anyway.


alm00322196 / IV83183
.....................
Short Description: FIELD ACCESS CRITERIA INCORRECTLY APPLIED

Summary:
The "any" VS "all" boolean operator (equivalent to boolean
"AND" vs "OR") used to define the behavior of access
criteria does not apply to multiple values for a given
access criterion.

Therefore, given a "Class" multi-value of "X" and "Y", with
the non-equality operator set ("!=") and the "ALL" boolean
operator set, a tool will still be available in the Event
Viewer if it has either Class X or Y, because the evaluation
treats the values as "ANY" (read: if the event has class
"X", the condition for "not class Y" applies and returns
true, and vice-versa).

This fix ensures that the "ALL" boolean operator is
evaluated for multiple values as well.

There is a known regression, with the "=" equality operator:
since an event can't have multiple values for a given field
(e.g. "Class"), when "ALL" and "=" is used in the same
access control, applying to multiple field values, the tool
will not be available for any given event.

This regression is addressed by internal APAR IV84185, in
which a multi-valued field will automatically apply the
"any" condition regardless of the actual setting, only if
the "=" equality operator is set.

See also a documentation APAR (IV84592), to amend the
information on the following page:
[https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SSSHTQ_8.1.0/com.ibm.netcool_OMNIbus.doc_8.1.0/webtop/wip/task/web_cust_createtools.html]

The reason for the DOC APAR is that AEL is not compatible
with the "!=" operator, whereas Event Viewer supports both
"=" and "!=".
The documentation will also update to reflect the functional
changes as per APARs IV83183 (this APAR) and IV84185.


alm00322078 / IV82868
.....................
Short Description: IN WEBGUI 8.1 SYETEMOUT.LOG SHOW ERRORS RELATED TO BREEZE.CSS WHEN EVENT VIEWER IS OPENED.

Summary:
Due to changes in DASH theme names, the style resources Web
GUI fetches in a number of server pages are not present
anymore.

This in turn is intercepted at servlet filter level and
fills the logs with FileNotFoundException s at each page
load (e.g. Event Viewer, Event Properties, etc.).
There is no regression on the visual side, as the inherited
style somehow palliates for the lack of specific resources,
and this does not disrupt Web GUI's functionality in any
noticeable way.


alm00322536 / IV84123
.....................
Short Description: LIGHTWEIGHT SMARTPAGE MAP TARGET _SELF

Summary:
Lightweight Maps and FilterPages in non-portlet mode do not
handle "_self" target for click-actions properly


alm00322208 / IV83335
.....................
Short Description: DELETED EVENTS REMAIN EVENT VIEWER

Summary:
The events/alerts are deleted in the ObjectServer, while the
Event Viewer has been refreshed to load the latest events, but
the list includes the deleted events, where a right-click action
would show the popup error, rather than the expected menu.


alm00322428 / IV83837
.....................
Short Description: [DOC] OMNIBUS 8.1 DOCUMENTATION DOESN'T HAVE THE INFORMATION ON HOW TO UPDATING WEB GUI 8.1 FIX PACK IN DASH 3120 CLUSTER ENVIRONMENT

Summary:
Missing load balancing configuration instructions for users
with DASH V3.1.20 or later.

Knowledge Center topic updated:
http://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SSSHTQ_8.1.0/com.ibm.netcool_OMNIbus.doc_8.1.0/webtop/wip/task/web_upg_dash_ha.html


alm00321918 / IV82650
.....................
Short Description: WATCHLIST ISSUE IN WEBGUI 8.1

Summary:
When creating a new WatchList in an Event Viewer (or add to
existing WatchList) a js script is hanging. After the script
is stopped (only FireFox offers this option) then the
WatchList can be created/modified. The issue due to the
WatchList preview feature try to load large number of
events.


alm00321173 / IV80398
.....................
Short Description: ERROR 500 WHEN ACCESSING WEB GUI PAGE BEFORE DASH LOGIN

Summary:
If a user configured Web GUI home page and enters the
URL host:port/ibm/console/webtop before logging in to
DASH, it results an Error 500. The expected behavior is
that a user should be taken to a login screen and, after
login, directed to their Web GUI home page. Subsequent
attempts are successful. The issue appears to occur on all
browsers.


alm00322445 / IV83964
.....................
Short Description: WEBGUI 7.4 FAILED TO RECONNECT TO DATASOURCE AFTER DATSOURCE RECOVERED FROM NOT STABLE MODE.

Summary:
During ObjectServer instability, WebGUI had detected SQL
error and triggered the ObjectServer re-connection procedure.
WebGUI able to reconnect, however one of the
post re-connection steps was failed and triggered another
re-connection task. The inappropriate re-connection state
handling caused the new job discarded and there is no new
re-connection job created ever.


alm00322948 / IV85262
.....................
Short Description: SYSTEMOUT.LOG SHOW ERRORS RELATED TO SMALLLOGO.GIF WHEN MAP IS OPENED.

Summary:
FileNotFound exception thrown in SystemOut.log for
/classes/com/micromuse/wave/editor/smalllogo.gif file when
user open Map Editor page. The error is due to wrong source
location. The correct source location is
/classes/com/micromuse/wave/editor/icons/smalllogo.gif.


alm00322083 / IV82926
.....................
Short Description: TOOLS THAT DON'T REQUIRE EVENTS CANNOT BE EXECUTED WHEN THEY ARE FED DATA FROM A PROMPT

Summary:
This fix addresses a few issues with tools and prompts that
cannot run successfully because they are invoked with no
event selection.

Note that tools operating on journals still cannot be run
without a selection (which is by design).

Finally, this change set addresses a flawed algorithm in
dynamic prompts, where values from multiple data-sources are
not intersected properly (by equality of key-value pairs).


alm00321730 / IV81898
.....................
Short Description: LOCALIZED DOESN'T COPY OVER WHEN PERFORMING "COPY VIEW"

Summary:
Localized doesn't copy over when perform "Copy View". This issue is seen, when the following
scenario is performed:

1) Create a view and ticked Localized check-box, save the new view.
2) Select the newly created view from step 1 and click "Copy" button.
3) Found that the copied view doesn't have Localized box checked.

Localized value should get copy over from existing view to new view.


alm00323134 / IV85969
.....................
Short Description: MAP : JAVA SCRIPT RENDERING : IMAGE TEXT CLIPPING

Summary:
Image label text in the Java applet rendered map has the text
(with ellipses) if the text exceeds the width of the
image.

The Java Script rendered map does not clip the text.

The two types of rendering should be as close to each other as
possible, so as to minimise issues when customers tranfer from
one to the other.

alm00323160 / IV85971
.....................
Short Description: IN WEBGUI 8.1 MAPS ARE NOT RENDERED CORRECTLY.

Summary:
In WebGUI 8.1 FP5 (deployed with WAS 8.5.5.7) maps are not
rendering correctly.

This happen when you open a large map first then open a small
map. When small map is displayed the scroll bars are shown on
the sides even though this map can perfectly fit in the window.
There should not be any scroll bars.

This issue is noticed only in Internet Explorer version 11 and
some earlier versions.

1.2 Installing this fix pack:
-------------------------------------
The media (zip) file of this fix pack includes the update pack and the tools for Linux & AIX only. These packages can be downloaded and extract to
<FP_dir>.

Note: If the current installation of Web GUI V8.1 is the June 2014 GA version (build 493), you must uninstall Web GUI and install the September 2014
GA version (build 615) before applying this fix pack, or use the refresh/full installer of V8.1.0 FP4. To check what version is currently installed
click Troubleshooting and Support > System Information for Netcool/OMNIbus Web GUI. For instance, the September 2014 GA version has the following
information displayed:
"IBM Tivoli Netcool/OMNIbus V8.1 Web GUI build 615 (15:31 Sep 29 2014)".

Scenario a)
Install Web GUI 8.1 (build 615 - Sep 29 2014 version) together with this fix pack.

The update pack can be used with the 8.1 installation media to create a new installation.

For instance, use Installation Manager to configure the "Preference", to add and select both <REPOSITORY_GA> and <REPOSITORY_FP> repositories,
and then click "Install".

Scenario b)
Update an existing Web GUI 8.1 (build 615 - Sep 29 2014 version) installation to this Fix Pack.

The update pack can be used to update an existing installation for customers with the installed September 2014 GA version (build 615) of Web GUI 8.1.

For instance, use Installation Manager to configure the "Preference" to add and select only <REPOSITORY_FP> repositories, and then click "Update".

Scenario c)
Update an existing Web GUI 8.1 (build 493 - June 2014 version) installation to this Fix Pack.

The update pack cannot be used to update an existing installation for customers with the installed June 2014 GA version (build 493) of Web GUI 8.1.
You must uninstall Web GUI and install the September 2014 GA version (build 615) before applying this fix pack.

Complete the following steps:
Note: Do not remove/uninstall JazzSM during this process.

1. Use the provided tools to create preservation zip files on Linux/AIX.

The tool (e.g. <FP_dir>/tools/backupGA.sh) provided in Linux and AIX fix packs can be used to create the temporary files
(e.g. <JazzSM>/ui/temp/*.zip), before an immediate re-install of Netcool/OMNIbus Web GUI. The configuration and data will be preserved when the
current version of Netcool/OMNIbus Web GUI is uninstalled, and automatically restored after the next installation of Netcool/OMNIbus Web GUI.

This tool must be executed by the user who installed Web GUI 8.1. It is specifically designed and supported for customers with the June 2014 GA
version (build 493) of Web GUI 8.1 on Linux/AIX platforms only, in order to update to the September 2014 GA version (build 615) of Web GUI 8.1 or
to this Fix Pack.

Run the following command to execute this tool:
<FP_dir>/tools/backupGA.sh -dash <DASH_HOME> -webgui<OMNIBUS_WEBGUI>

For example, with the default install directories on a Linux/AIX system:
<FP_dir>/tools/backupGA.sh -dash /opt/IBM/JazzSM/ui -webgui /opt/IBM/netcool/omnibus_webgui

2. Manual backup of Web GUI 8.1 June 2014 GA version (build 493), see section (4).

3. Uninstall Web GUI 8.1 June 2014 GA version (build 493), see section (7).

4a. Install Web GUI 8.1 September 2014 GA version (build 615), and complete the steps in section (2).

Or

4b. Install Web GUI 8.1 September 2014 GA version (build 615) together with this fix pack, as outlined in section 1.2 scenario a).


Addition notes:
---------------
- A roll back to previous versions will be available if the "update" facility was used, rather than "install" from the Installation Manager.
- In GUI mode, the launch page to Post-installation configuration tool will not be available for an update, but is available for a new install.
- If the steps in section 1.2 scenario c) are not followed when updating an existing Web GUI 8.1 June 2014 GA version (build 493) installation
to this Fix Pack, a failed installation will result.
To recover perform one of the following steps:
(a) manual restore, see section (5)
(b) uninstall the Web GUI, see section (7)
