Yellowfin BI 7.1 - build 20170202
Yellowfin 7.1 update
Published: 8 February, 2017

Enhancement: 4

773 - Added ability to allow users to access administration page with cross site scripting.

604 - Added ability to allow default value of parameters to now be edited after activation. There is also a new option for parameters in the formatting menu. 'view default' option can be set to ensure that the value is reflective of the view's update default value of the parameter. This must be used in conjunction with the option 'remember filter values' being turned off for the view default values to not be overridden by it.

595 - Added restriction to no longer filter associated reports when run on dashboard.

506 - Applying an advanced function will no longer remove conditional formatting, but it is very likely to not be relevant any longer, since the data in the column will probably be different and won't match the existing rules.

208 - Fixed database deadlock in view builder when removing tables.
