I see. What were called templates and wizards in the other IDEs are "snippets" in VSCode.

Thank you!


Hi Jenna,  I don't know the specifics of your use case, but you might find it more straightforward to create a simple rather than named filter. You can use the shared storage option to make the filter available across pivots using the cube. HTH, David

Hi Mads,

I don't have a lot of experience with Pandas, but you might be able to connect to Caché using the InterSystems JDBC driver. I know this is possible using Spark. You would need to move cachejdbc.jar into your container and set up some kind of classpath correctly so that Pandas can find the jar file.

I hope this helps.


Hi Bob,

I believe the docker for windows command for creating the named volume inside the linux vm should be

docker volume create durable

rather than 

docker create volume durable

Thank you for this awesome article Sebastian! Following your instructions, I was able to display some sneeziness data.

Two questions:

1.  Why does User.SDAExtension extend %Persistent?

2.  How I would get started displaying my own custom SDA containers?



Hi Farhad,

Are you still having this problem?

The error message is complaining about the source property being undefined. I've been able to reproduce exactly your error message by using request.source.{MSH:9.2} rather than correct syntax request.{MSH:9.2}

I hope this helps.


Hi Stuart,

Are you writing your own business service?

Have you looked at  EnsLib.RecordMap.Service.FTPService , which Ensemble includes out of the box? Maybe it does everything you need.

Best Regards,


Depending on the structure of your cube, you might be able to do this with a set of calculated members using range expressions and the %OR MDX function.

For example, here is the MDX expression for a range of 1 to 3 units sold using the Units per Transaction dimension in the HoleFoods cube:


I wanted to add that you can check the bitness of your java version using the following commands as well:

1. java -d32  -version (returns an error if the java version is 64 bit)

2. java -d64 -version (returns an error if the java version is 32 bit)

Here is a screen shot running the above commands against my 64-bit java on windows.

Also contrary to one of the earlier posts, I believe that a full jdk is not required to run Atelier or eclipse. A jre is sufficient.
