    What's New for release 18.10, October 2018
    Here is a summary of the new features

    New EPM Automate Utility Version

    A new version of the EPM Automate Utility is available with this update. This version includes the renameSnapshot, which enables you to rename a snapshot available in an environment to prevent the maintenance process from overwriting it. Customers who have small applications can use this command to archive snapshots in the environment subject to snapshot retention policies.

    This version also includes updates to the rundailyMaintenance command, which has been enhanced to take skipNext as a new optional parameter. This parameter allows you to skip the next occurrence of the daily maintenance process. Use this parameter to prevent the daily maintenance process from interfering with long running ad hoc processes of unknown duration that you execute in an environment.

    Additionally, the runcalc command has been updated with the DATA_POV_NAME optional parameter, which enables you to run Profitability and Cost Management Cloud calculations using rules in a model POV against data in a different data POV without copying rules.

    REST API Update Supports Using Rules from a Model POV on Different Data POVs

    The Run ML Calculations REST AP resource now enables you to run calculations using rules in a model POV against data in a different data POV without copying rules across POVs. A new parameter, dataPOVName, supports this enhancement.

    The runcalc EPM Automate command also includes this update.

    New Server Setting in Financial Reporting Web Studio

    A new server setting, "Export to Excel Using Default Sheet Name", controls Excel sheet names upon export. When set to false, the sheet name uses the Financial Reporting report name. When set to true, the sheet name uses the Excel default name (Sheet1, Sheet2, etc.)
