Over my journey through the Hyperion toolset, there are a plethora tools I have developed that make repetitive tasks easier, make some tasks unnecessary, and provide functionality that doesn’t exist otherwise. I am going to devote time to add these to the in2hyperion BLOG so that others may benefit. You can find a new menu item that reads tools that will take you to the tools section of the BLOG.
The first free tool added is a utility that will convert Hyperion Essbase business rules’ exports, which are in the XML format, to a more readable format for documentation. This tool will extract the name, description, and syntax/formula for all the business rules in the export.
