Confirming that analytics run successfully in AX Client

Once you have imported and configured an analytic to run, you need to confirm that the AX Engine successfully runs the analytic and produces the expected results.

As you work with analytics, you can use the process outlined below to identify and resolve errors that occur. You may encounter errors in the following areas:

You can check the status of an analytic by viewing the history of analytics that have run in AX Client.

To check the status of an analytic:

  1. Open ACL Analytics Exchange Client, and log in if you are prompted for your user name and password.
  2. In the Server Explorer treeview, select the analytic you want to view the status for.
  3. Select Analytics > View Jobs to display the Job Status view.
  4. Select the date range for the analytic history in the View History By drop-down list. The results are based on the time that the analytic finished running.
  5. Locate the job you want to view the history for using the Collection, Folder, and Start Time columns.
  6. Check the Status column to determine if the analytic succeeded or failed .
  7. Select the job entry in the Analytic Jobs tab and do one of the following:
    • If the analytic succeeded, check that the entire result set specified in the analytic header has been added to AX Server, and that each of the result files is listed in the Analytic Job Details tab and includes the expected results.

    • If the analytic failed, click the Click for more link in the Analytic Job Details tab for a more detailed description of the error that occurred. The Error description provides general information about the cause of the problem. In some cases, this information may be enough to resolve the problem, but in other cases you may need to review the log file to determine the exact cause of the problem.

    If the analytic failed to run, the analytic .log file is automatically included in the results for the job even if the analytic does not include a //RESULT LOG tag. You can open the scripts and analytics in the script editor, and correct any errors you find.
