Product: TIBCO Spotfire®
Data is getting embedded while saving the analysis file in library even if the data table is kept as linked to the source.
In the below scenario's while performing the save operation, the data table present inside the analysis file gets embedded even if the 'Linked to source' option is selected inside the data table properties option whereas if we save the analysis file locally then everything works as expected.
Scenario 1: Check the preference setting for the logged-in user group(s) from the Administration Manager option.
- Open Spotfire Analyst >> Tools >> Administration Manager >> Preferences >> Select the Group >> Application >> Library Preference
- Inside it, check for the below
1) EmbedAllData: Lets you specify whether or not data should be embedded in the analysis by default when saving the analysis to the library. If you do not specify anything, default is not to embed the data (False). This applies only to in-memory data because in-db data is never embedded.
2) ForceEmbedAllData: Set to True if you want the data to always be embedded in the analysis when saving to the library. This will remove the entire step in the Save to Library wizard where a user can select whether or not data should be embedded. This applies only to in-memory data because in-db data is never embedded.
Note: The value should be either Empty or "False".Change the value to either Empty or "False" if it was set to "True" and again save the file in the library. Now you will be able to save the file as "Linked to Source". Make sure that you are checking the 'Preferences' of each group to which user(s) belong to including 'everyone'.
