Currently in PAW when creating a TI process that uses a file as a data source, you can add files from your local machine or via a UNC/mapped drive.
As PAW is web based, you are not working on the TM1 sever or possibly the environment in which the TM1 server would normally access files e.g. a network share that the TM1 service account has access to.
To create a process without the relevant files means that you need to SFTP the file from the cloud environment, connect to the server etc. etc.
There should be an option to allow you to browse locally or browse from a server perspective.
|Who would benefit from this IDEA?||Any modelers writing processes requiring file data sources|
|Priority Justification||Simplies the process of writing these processes on PAW and reduces time spent transferring files|
|Client Name||Aspen Pharmacare|
How should it work?
A simple checkbox / radio button option to change between local / server would suffice.
If local, you can still drag, browse etc.
If server based, you would need a file browser window to allow navigation and selection.
