    Hello,

    Few days ago the SSA and LIM teams released 2 New Patches: S01 of Spectrum Spatial Analyst 2018.2 and S05 of Spectrum LIM 2018.2.

    Here some technical information for installing these patches:

     

    • How do I know if the patch has been installed?
      • For Spectrum, check if the file ".rls" are in the Spectrum installation folder – like cdq2018s05.rls 
      • For SSA, go to the SSA Admin Console check if there is written 2018.2.01 in the bottom UI.

    Just a quick side note that we had a customer that questioned why they received patch S06 before S05,,, stating that they thought they should receive and deploy patches in sequence.   They were correct, one should always deploy patches in sequence, however S06 was actually for a different module (AMM) as opposed to S05 (LIM).    At times PB engineering will plan a patch and reserve the number, but it may take a while to complete the work. So other, more urgent patches, might get out first (for a different module).    Cheers.

    Following on from Andy D's post to the Knowledge Community (Feb 7, 2019 3:41 AM) re: new SSA patch, I have a couple of queries.

    Regarding: "Feature: The option to set a friendly name for named maps is not provided in the new project settings dialog". Does this mean that all my NamedMaps will display with their system name instead of a friendly name. I upload NamedMaps with a naming structured naming. For exmaple I have a NamedMap called PublicSafety_CCTVSouthwarkTFlcameras_thematic but I publish it with the friendly name of Southwark and TfL CCTV cameras

    Can I still continue doing this essential addition of a friendly name?


    Regarding: "Feature: There are some cases where layers are not correctly saved into a map project or are in the wrong order". This sounds quite serious. I need confidence that the layers I want added to SSA get published to SSA. Or am I misunderstanding this bug?

    Hi Stuart,

    Yes, you can. Spectrum Spatial Analyst v2018.2 patch S01 (so release 2018.2.01) has this new update (from the Release Notes):

     -        Friendly Names Now you can specify friendly name for map layers so that after saving the map project, users see the customized layer names.

     Now, in the Project Setting you can set the friendly name to the Named Maps. Look at the screenshot below.

    Yes, the bug has been fixed on Project Saving as the same Project and  as a new project. Just in case you will get a problem, please, write an email to our technical support or reach out to us.

    Hi John,

    you and/or your customer in maintenance should have received the email from our fulfillment to  the eStore link. Check this with your Channel Manager.

    Here the link to the eStore to the SSA 2018.2 patch S01 http://store.pbinsight.com/promo/4946343000

    Take care, please, to install Spectrum 2018.2 patch S05 before installing SSA patch. Otherwise, it won't work. The patch S05 installation needs the stop/start of the Spectrum service - so read the relates notes before installing.
    Then clear the web browsed cache :-)
    thanks
    Monica
