Though version 1.3.0 of Analytics ensures backwards compatibility with the execution of MDX queries, this compatibility and the new Mondrian 4 schema definition required to redefine some cube definitions on the XML schema. This causes that the Query Model definition of some cubes can be different from previous Analytics versions.

Update the Query Model definition of an Analytics report can be easily done using the OB Analytics window. These are the steps:

  1. Go to the [OB Analytics] window and generate the same query that it is being launched in the report.
  2. Use the Save Query button of the toolbar to save the query.
  3. Navigate to the [Analytics Queries] window and look for your saved query.
  4. The content of the Query field contains the new Query Model definition. Copy and paste it into the corresponding record of the Report Query tab in the [Process Definition] window.
