As of December 1, 2020, Focal Point is retired and repurposed as a reference repository. We value the wealth of knowledge that's been shared here over the years. You'll continue to have access to this treasure trove of knowledge, for search purposes only.
New TIBCO Community Coming Soon
In early summer, TIBCO plans to launch a new community—with a new user experience, enhanced search, and expanded capabilities for member engagement with answers and discussions! In advance of that, the current myibi community will be retired on April 30. We will continue to provide updates here on both the retirement of myibi and the new community launch.
What You Need to Know about Our New Community
We value the wealth of knowledge and engagement shared by community members and hope the new community will continue cultivating networking, knowledge sharing, and discussion.
During the transition period, from April 20th until the new community is launched this summer, myibi users should access the TIBCO WebFOCUS page to engage.
I would like to suggest making a new forum subject for Webfocus 8. This past year there have been so many releases and bug fixes of 8, it might be good to get some input from folks when they are having issues with a certain version of 8.
I am 8002M for production, but I am waiting on a workable release for me which was 8006 since it fixed an issue with Weblogic, but now I notice an issue with Security Center and I think it is parsing through an LDAP group.
I would be curios if anyone else has downloaded 8006 and is experiencing the same issue.
Food for thought and of course I opened a case.This message has been edited. Last edited by: <Kathryn Henning>,
I agree. A WF8 migration forum would be a good idea. It would be great if the bulk of WebFOCUS customers can upgrade to WF8 soon-ish. So a forum to consolidate thoughts and experiences and solutions would be great!
In terms of general WebFOCUS posts - they should stay where they are - but I think a reminder of how to update one's signature and a request for everyone to update their signatures would be good too :-)
WebFOCUS 8.2.06 mostly Windows Server

I like one stop shopping. This current forum needs to be maintained to discuss all the things that apply across releases. I can understand the desire for the "migration" forum, but as someone that will be migrating next year, I like the discussion here so I can start wrapping my head around what we will be experiencing in the future.
WebFOCUS 7.7.05 (Someday 8) Windows 7, All Outputs In Focus since 1983.
I believe there's no need to fragment the existing forum structure, which has worked so well over so many previous version releases. WF8 (migration or new features) certainly falls under the general WebFOCUS forum. Search is the answer here, so perhaps we could agree on a common hashtag - #WF8MIGRATION or #WF8NEWFEATURE.
-WebFOCUS 8.2.01 on Windows

We are Linux for both the reporting server and client.
We are almost finished. I've opened over 20 problem reports.
We found a couple of bugs.
Put in 2-3 NFRs which were accepted.
The rest is configuration and security. Being as behind the times as we are, we are still on IE8 and XP. That should be remedied by the end of the year. With IE8 and XP we were using NTLM for Single Sign On (SSO). Apparently that is now a security risk so we had to develop a Kerberos solution. That has taken a while with the biggest issue with that was has been that the user id now has to be in a userid@domain format. Last I heard a fix for that will be in 8.1.
I also had to diagnose and fix the mirgration utilities. Some form of one of the Linux command was not compatible with our system.
We use DSTRUN a lot and of course that changed.
Then there is always the code tightening.
In FOCUS since 1985. Prod WF 8.0.08 (z90/Suse Linux) DB (Oracle 11g), Self Serv, Report Caster, WebServer Intel/Linux.
