This summary is meant to inform our clients on the changes, fixes and new features coming with the latest update of the OneStream® Enterprise Performance System. Though it is not a strictly necessary update in terms of security, we recommend the installation to keep your system up-to-date and prevent issues in updating later on. Depending on your SLA, please contact us to order the update.
OneStream 8.0.0 is a major release containing new features and enhancements to existing features.
Here are some highlights in this version:
- We migrated the development framework from .NET4 to .NET6. You will see immediate benefits from performance improvements for memory intensive operations, such as consolidation and complex cube view processing. However, business rule compilation failures may result due to incompatible rule syntax or dll file references.
- OneStream IdentityServer (OIS) and Smart Integration Connector (SIC) are generally available and represent the standard authentication and data integration technologies for version 8.0.0.
- We continue to upgrade Workspaces with more features in workspace assemblies. Also, you can build cube views within workspaces.
- Many ideas resulted from IdeaStream, such as form templates, business rule user interface improvements, and data management. Continue to vote on IdeaStream to participate in what comes next.
- Journals were updated to improve the user experience of posting journals and enable finer granularity over segregation of duties.
- OneStream Documentation is now public. Go to documentation.onestream.com to see version 8.0.0. Documentation previously provided in OneStream releases has been removed and all available documentation is on the public site.
- You can continue to use the service catalog to indicate interest in upgrading to Platform v8. Customer Success Representatives will engage all interested Platform v8 candidates to review preparation activities required for a successful upgrade. Refer to the Platform v8+ Upgrade Group in ONECommunity for information and discussion.
Smart Integration Connector is a General Availability feature. Smart Integration Connector provides secure connectivity between a OneStream SaaS instance and customer data sources residing within a local network. See the Smart Integration Connector Guide for more information about enabling this feature in your environment.
OneStream IdentityServer is a General Availability feature. The Identity & Access Management Portal includes an enhanced self-service feature that enables you to independently add SAML 2.0 compliant identity providers through a manual configuration and test, edit, view, and remove those identity providers. See the Identity and Access Management Guide for more information about authentication with OneStream IdentityServer.
You can copy existing journals into other time periods. This is useful when you are creating journals similar to ones already created and is helpful when managing recurring journals. (PF1-8815)
You can ensure that dimension members selected in the journal are valid cube intersections based on constraints configured in the dimension library. If validation errors exist, they will display in a Validation pane allowing you to view them as you make edits to the journal. This helps you save time by validating entries earlier in the process. (PF1-8813)
You can export journals associated with defined parameters to an XSLX file using the ExportJournalsToXSLX BRApi. It can be easier to read and modify journal data in an XSLX format compared to CSV files that are generated by the existing ExportJournalsToCSV BRApi. (PF1-8755)
Integration Settings are added to the Application Server Configuration Utility to enable the modifications of the Stage Summary Rows and Stage Ratio values. Minimum Data Record Count, Summarized Row Ratio, and Always Use Database Server configurations increase performance efficiency.
Cube View Administrators can select multiple cube views to copy. Use the Ctrl key to select multiple cube views that are not grouped together. (PF6-2365)
You can encrypt workspace assemblies at the file level. (PF6-2371)
Assemblies allow references to known packages that are already part of the standard server install, such as OpenXML. (PF6-2201)
Cube views can be created and edited in two locations on the Application tab: through the Cube Views page and the Workspaces page. Current cube views can be found in the Default Maintenance Unit under the Default Workspace. (PF6-2093)
In the user interface, click the Help button to view the documentation from a public website.
Show Dimension Member Descriptions in Journal Line Items: Dimension member descriptions are shown next to the member names in Journal Line Items. This provides clarity and accuracy. If dimension members contain language-specific descriptions, the descriptions are shown in your chosen language (culture is set in your user profile). (PF1-8696)
Journals Prevent Load to Unrelated Entities: The Can Load Unrelated Entities property is added to Adjustment Workflow Profile types to prevent loading journal data to Entities not assigned in its Input Parent Workflow Profile. (PF1-8814)
Delete Journals: You can quickly and efficiently delete multiple journals at the same time. (PF1-8796)
Require Journal Template: A new security property, Require Journal Template, is in the Adjustment Workflow Profile type that enforces the creation of new journals from existing journal templates only. Administrators (system and application) can still create free-form journals. (PF1-8756)
Prevent Self-Approval and Self-Posting of Journals: You can prevent users from approving journals they have created or submitted and posting journals they have created, submitted, or approved with two new security properties on the Adjustment Workflow Profile. This feature disables the Quick Post functionality. Preventing self-approval and self- posting of journals supports the compliance of segregation of duties. (PF1-8371)
Show UD descriptions in Journals: Show the descriptions for the eight UD Dimension Types next to the UD dimension in the Journal POV and the line item headers using the new check box in the journal toolbar. Descriptions are defined in the Application Properties and can provide clarity on the purpose of the dimensions. (PF1-8698)
Remove Resource Owner Password Credentials (ROPC): Personal access tokens (PATs) are now supported for customers in OneStream-hosted environments. (PF7-2498)
ClickOnce Usage: The ClickOnce process is enhanced to launch the application with a single click of the Open button while eliminating the tiles page. (PF7-2350)

Workspaces Toolbar Buttons: Toolbar buttons accommodate moving cube views under the workspaces umbrella. (PF6-2220)
Removed Access Group Property from Dashboard Groups: In Dashboard Groups, the security section has been removed from the user interface and the database. This change applies for all dashboard groups including in the default workspace or non-default workspace.
Cube View Groups Security Properties: Cube View Groups at Application > Presentation > Cube Views have the security properties Access Group and Maintenance Group. You can edit these properties if you have the ManageCubeViews role.
Cube View Groups at Default Workspace/Default Maintenance Unit have the security properties Access Group and Maintenance Group. You can edit these properties if you have the ManageCubeViews role.
Cube View Groups located outside Default Workspace/Default Maintenance Unit have the security properties Access Group and Maintenance Group and are hidden from users.
The Application security role ManageCubeViews gives you full rights to edit Cube View Groups in cube views and the default Workspace/Default Maintenance Unit cube view groups.
The Application security role ManageApplicationWorkspaces gives you full rights to make edits anywhere outside the default Workspace/Default Maintenance Unit. (PF6-2751)
Updated Workspaces Icon: A new icon displays for Workspaces, where the Dashboard icon was previously displayed. (PF6-2271)
XML Extract/Load: You can extract and load newly created cube views, cube view groups, and cube view profiles using the traditional XML process under the Application Workspaces file type option.
For XML extract, if you select the file type of Application Workspaces, the system updates the third line of code from <applicationDashboardsRoot> to <applicationWorkspacesRoot> on the extract.
For XML load, the system properly loads <applicationWorkspacesRoot>. To support backward compatibility, if you have an XML extract that contains
<applicationDashboardsRoot>, the system still loads the older version.
For XF Project, when extracting a file, the folder structure is updated from Application Dashboards to Application Workspaces. (PF6-2808)
Whitelisted Domains: The Whitelisted Domains setting in the Application Server Configuration file in OneStream gives you more control over the URLs and domains
allowed to be referenced. Customers in a self-hosted environment can update this setting in the Application Server Configuration file. Customers in a OneStream-hosted environment can contact Customer Support to update this setting. (PF2-15004)
Logging: To standardize and improve the logging strategy across server applications, the logging configuration settings have been removed from the OneStream Server Configuration Utility application and are included in the JSON files. (PF2-14996)
