Migration guide from 2.6 to 2.7

From Flexmonster Pivot Table & Charts 2.6 to 2.7

Follow this tutorial for a comfortable and quick migration to the new major version. Find more details below:

  1. Removed API calls
  2. Updated API calls
  3. Changes to Report Object
  4. New data source: Elasticsearch
  5. Localization files update
  6. Changes to relative URLs
  7. Updating from the previous versions

Removed API calls

  1. getFilterProperties method was removed in version 2.7. Use getFilter() instead.
  2. setTopX method was removed in version 2.7. Use setFilter() instead.
  3. setBottomX method was removed in version 2.7. Use setFilter() instead.

Updated API calls

  1. getFilter(hierarchyName:String) now returns Filter Object (instead of Array with members).
  2. setFilter(hierarchyName:String, filter:Filter Object) now gets Filter Object as a second argument (instead of Array with members).

Changes to Report Object

  1. columns.filter, rows.filter, and reportFilters.filter from Slice Object were changed, check out the new structure here: Filter Object. The following filtering properties were removed (they remain available in terms of backward compatibility):
    • filter.negation was removed in version 2.7. Use exclude from Filter Object instead.
    • filter.quantity was removed in version 2.7. Use query from Filter Object instead.
    • filter.type was removed in version 2.7. Use query from Filter Object instead.
  2. Options Object was extended with the following properties:
    • filter – Object. Filtering options:
      • timezoneOffset – Number. The difference (in minutes) between UTC and user’s local time zone. Used to adjust the dates in the filter. Default value: user’s local time.
      • weekOffset – Number. Sets amount of days to be added to the start of the week (Sunday). Used to adjust the first day of the week in the filter’s calendar. Default value: 1 (Monday is the first day of the week).
      • dateFormat – String. Date pattern to format dates in filter’s date inputs. Has two possible values: "dd/MM/yyyy" and "MM/dd/yyyy". Default value: "dd/MM/yyyy".
  3. dataSource from Report Object was extended with the following properties:
    • host (optional) – String|Object. The host for the connection (only for "elasticsearch" data source type). Can be set either as a URL string ("host": "https://olap.flexmonster.com:9200") or as a Host Object.
    • index (optional) – String. The name of Elasticsearch index to connect (only for "elasticsearch" data source type).
    • mapping (optional) – Object. An additional setting to configure index mapping (only for "elasticsearch" data source type). Use the name of the field as a key of the object with the following parameters:
      • caption (optional) – String. Overrides the default name of the field.
      • visible (optional) – Boolean. When set as false, hides the field from the Field List.
      • interval (optional) – String. Used for date histogram. Check out supported time units.
      • time_zone (optional) – String. Used for date histogram. You can specify timezones as either an ISO 8601 UTC offset (e.g. +01:00 or -08:00) or as a timezone ID as specified in the IANA timezone database, such as`America/Los_Angeles`. Check out the example.
      • format (optional) – String. Used for date histogram. Check out date format/pattern.

New data source: Elasticsearch

Now Flexmonster supports connection to Elasticsearch data source out of the box. Find more details in our blog post.

Localization files update

New localization labels were added in version 2.7. Get the updated localization files from our GitHub repository.

Changes to relative URLs

In 2.7 we have added support of ./ (that means current directory) for dataSource.filename and localization URLs. All details are covered below:

  • if the URL is without / or ./ – the path will be resolved using the componentFolder + filename
  • if the URL starts with / – the path will be resolved using the root directory (website root)
  • if the URL starts with ./ – the path will be resolved using the current directory (current HTML page path)
  • if the URL starts with ../ – the path will be resolved using the parent folder of the componentFolder
