Hi Vikas,

I hope all is well,

Unfortunately we no longer offer the feature of Semi-addictive fields in Yellowfin 7.35 (since 7.3 upwards), although as you have stated you are running 7.2 and would like to question whether or not we have any steps to set this up.

When the field type is a metric you will be able to set the additive type, which can be set to either Additive or Semi-Additive.The additive type option should be set to Semi-Additive when there are fields upon which the metric is constrained by use (when business rules dictate how the column should be used in a report). When this is the case a new tab labelled Constraint is displayed to enable the user to select these constraints.

I can also provide you with some further information from our wiki here.

Further to this, please be aware we have raised this as a Defect with our dev team to see if they can re consider having this option back. We can track this with the JIRA ID of; YFN-2377.

Regards,

Mark

Hi Vikas,

No problem. Hopefully going forwards we can have this implemented in a future build beyond 7.3+
