Good morning everyone. We just upgraded to 9.0 SR4 and Iam trying to do a loop and distribute on one of our documents. On the reduce tab I have selected values 133131 and 135231. I am controling everything through Active Directory, so I have these groups setup 133131 and 135231 setup in AD. On my distribute tab I have selected from AD 133131 and 135231. What is happening is one document is getting published called 133131 and it also contains 135231. How can I create 2 separate documents.....Thanks
I did not have to do this in 8.5. I should just be able to tell it to do a loop and distribute on a field and it will create individual documents based on the field (which it's not doing it's combinding all documents into one). I let AD control who sees what. I think there maybe a small bug in 9.0 SR 4.
I have found this to be a problem with QV9.0 also. We use to be able to limit groups in the loop and reduce portion of publisher. I could only work around this by creating seperate reduction tasks. I know not the answer you wanted but I think this needs to be pushed back to QV as a issue in the new version.
I think you want to use the Loop and Reduce rather than selecting values in the Simple Reduce section. If you select the Field that contains the Groups in the Loop and Reduce dropdown Publisher will create a document for each group within that field with only that groups associations whereas selecting fields in the Simple Reduce section will create a document with data for the values selected hence getting data for both groups.
I believe he is using loop and reduce, but the choice to limit his loop and reduce to only certain values in the "reduction" field seems to have been eliminated in QV 9.0. It was a nice functionality that I am hoping we can get back.
Thom, Can you confirm that you are trying to loop and reduce only on certain values in a reduction field?
JS you are correct. I had to change my loop and distribute from a simple to a complete loop and distribute. In the simple loop and distribute where I specified the profit centers I wanted to reduce on seems to no longer work in 9.0 SR4. I had to select loop and distribute on a field called profit center and now it's generating QVW's for every profit center in my model. Runs way too long considering all I want to do a loop and distribute on is 2 profit centers, not 150.
