Re: Teradata Viewpoint 13.11 released

Teradata Dynamic Workload Manager (TDWM) and the Workload Designer portlet provide the same configuration options for Teradata DB 12.0 and 13.0 releases. As there is no TDWM version that will work against Teradata DB 13.10, you will need to be using Workload Designer at that time. For the overlapping releases, one can actually use both TDWM and Workload Designer concurrently. So the hard switch over is with Teradata DB 13.10. The only key point in switching is there is a learning curve so leveraging the overlapping releases is certainly best practices.

Thanks for the clarification. This is helpful information and is a good thing to get started before the DBS upgrade.

Hi, we are on viewpoint 13.11 and recently upgraded Firefox from 3.6.11 to 4.0.1.
We had to roll back because at least two TASM-portlets didn't work in Firefox 4. (Workloads - Priority Distribution and Workloads - Workload - Throttles)

Do you know when viewpoint will certified for Firefox 4?

The next release of Viewpoint, 13.12 will provide official support Firefox 4.x. This release should be at the end of August. We will also provide support for Chrome and Safari but will be dropping IE6.x.

As viewpoint administrator, I would like to send email notification to all the viewpoint users but I don't see a way to pull the list of users/emails list. Is there a way to do it in viewpoint? Thanks.

Re: Teradata Viewpoint 13.11 released

There is not a way to pull a list of Viewpoint users and email addresses in the current release. However, in Viewpoint 13.12, scheduled for release at the end of August, you will be able to export the user list to a CSV file, similar to the export provided in other portlets like Query Monitor. From this CSV file you should be able to copy and paste the list of email addresses into your mail editor.

We are going to turn on LDAP logon in viewpoint. We have lot of users already created in viewpoint and I don't see a easy way to turn on external authentication globally in user manager. Looks like we have to do it at each user level??

The Viewpoint auto-provisioning feature is located in the Admin - LDAP menu.

Re: Teradata Viewpoint 13.11 released

For exixting user one will have to check the option for external authentication, for all new users, the auto provisioning will take care. You'd be glad you did that sooner than later. We have it integrated with LDAP and no more password management!!
