December 2023 Release Notes

Shipped Not Invoiced app (case-centric) version 3.0.1 (2023-12-21)

Refactored views and Knowledge Model, with custom templates for your use cases
  • We’ve flattened the view architecture by removing base views and reducing the depth of embedded views, so it’s simpler for you to customize the app.

  • In the app’s Knowledge Model, we’ve revised the PQL queries to make them more intuitive to read and understand. The PQL statements are refactored, simplified and reformatted, but the underlying logic stays the same.

  • If you want to deploy the Shipped Not Invoiced app for a related use case (such as unbilled contracts, unbilled service orders, or unbilled stock transfer orders), you can now do so easily with our new templates. The custom object templates and instructions to use them are shipped in the app package.

You’ll need to transfer any customizations you made to the views and KPIs that are being removed in this version of the app, to the equivalent views and KPIs in the new version. Updating the case-centric Shipped Not Invoiced app lists the removed views and KPIs and where to apply the customizations in version 3.0.1. To avoid downtime for your end users but still keep your transactional activity history, we recommend that you install the new version separately, transfer your customizations to that package, then copy it over the old package, following the linked instructions.

Oracle Fusion BICC Extractor (2023-12-18)

Connect with improved throughput and scope (Limited Availability)

We’ve built a new Extractor for Oracle Fusion based on Oracle Business Intelligence Cloud Connector (BICC). BICC is Oracle’s recommended tool for large data extractions from Oracle Fusion, giving higher data throughput than the old Extractor that uses the Oracle REST APIs. Our BICC Extractor is capable of extracting all the public view objects (PVOs) that exist in an Oracle instance, where the old Extractor was limited to the Purchase to Pay, Accounts Payable, and Accounts Receivable processes. When you’ve set up the data connection, the Extractor automatically takes care of the BICC configurations using an API, so you don’t need to set these up manually.

The BICC Extractor is being released in Limited Availability. To get access as an early adopter, please reach out to your Celonis point of contact. To find out more, see Oracle Fusion BICC extractor.

Studio (2023-12-14)

Create augmented attributes without referencing records (Limited Availability Program for Studio)

When you’re working with the new Studio experience, you now create augmented attributes in the Knowledge Model by referencing tables in the Data Model directly, instead of referencing records. They get their own category in the Knowledge Model. You can edit the values of these augmented attributes from within table components in Studio. The old style augmented attributes can’t be used in the new Studio views. For all the changes and new capabilities in the Limited Availability Program for Studio, see Studio (new experience), and the new augmented attributes are documented there in Augmented attributes.

JDBC Extractor version 2.88.1 (2023-12-13)

Extract Oracle tables in parallel (Beta release)

This version of the JDBC Extractor includes the Beta release of Oracle Smart Extraction. The feature is shipped disabled. If you want to try it out, we recommend that you do so in a sandbox environment.

If you choose to switch Oracle Smart Extraction on, we'll parallelize extractions of larger Oracle tables using one of three smart strategies (chunking based on the primary key, chunking based on the row ID, or selecting from partitions), depending on the table structure. We hope you'll see a significant reduction in your data extraction times, like we did in our testing.

To get Oracle Smart Extraction enabled, talk to your Celonis point of contact or create a support ticket.

Action Flows (2023-12-08)

Modules for Oracle Fusion apps

We’ve added modules to integrate Oracle Fusion ERP, HCM, and Sales applications with your Action Flows. You can create automations to watch, search for, create, retrieve, update, and delete records in these applications. For the instructions, see Oracle Fusion Cloud ERP, Oracle Fusion Cloud HCM, and Oracle Fusion Cloud Sales.

Material Emissions App version 1.0.0 (2023-12-08)

Map, measure and reduce your scope 3 material emissions (Limited Availability)

Our new case-centric Material Emissions app for the Purchase to Pay process is launching in Limited Availability status. Talk to your Celonis point of contact to find out more.

The app is designed for sustainability teams that need to report and track their emissions against targets, and also for procurement teams that need visibility into carbon-emission hotspots within their procured materials. You can map material emissions and trigger operational actions in the Celonis platform. The app can inform your strategic decisions to reduce emissions, and quantify the reductions that you achieve.

Custom Monitoring version 2 (2023-12-08)

Operational dashboards for end-to-end data pipeline insights

We're introducing new dashboards to help you oversee your data pipelines, data consumption, and Replication Cockpit workload more effectively.

  • The Data Pipeline Monitoring dashboard shows the end-to-end performance of your data pipelines, including Data Model loads. You can view your data pipeline executions from the perspective of data jobs or tasks to get better visibility into how the items relate to each other.

  • The Data Consumption Monitoring dashboard shows how each table contributes to the overall data consumption, and how it's changed over time. The dashboard now also matches tables in global Data Connections to the Data Pool that they’re being stored in.

  • The Replication Cockpit Monitoring dashboard lets you track your changing workloads and drill down on anomalies to optimize your replications.

The Data Models for monitoring now load more quickly and reliably with adjustable Data Pool parameters and performance enhancements to the transformations.

For instructions to install this version of Custom Monitoring or upgrade from an earlier version, see Monitoring of Data Pools.

Process Adherence Manager (2023-12-07)

Compare your actual and ideal process flows

Process Adherence Manager is now in General Availability status. Process Adherence Manager and the Multi-Object Process Explorer are the evolution of Process Sphere, which was announced at Celosphere 2022. To get access to Process Adherence Manager, you'll need a Celonis license that includes object-centric process mining. If you do have the Data > Objects and Events option in the Celonis platform, but you can’t see Process Adherence Manager in the navigation menu, or you don’t have the permissions to use it, check with your Celonis point of contact.

Process Adherence Manager enables users to identify value opportunities comparing their event data against an ideal process flow in a guided way. It combines mining, modeling and conformance analysis in one single user interface. Process Adherence Manager uses the event data from the Process Intelligence Graph to analyze whether processes run in accordance with the defined process flows, evaluating the significance of all deviations in terms of impact on the overall process performance. At the same time, Process Adherence Manager uncovers and identifies the root causes behind any such deviation.

To find out more about Process Adherence Manager, you can check out this video, try out a demo, and read the documentation.

Business Miner (2023-12-07)

Control access requests for Data Models

Administrators can now choose whether users in the team can request access to Data Models when creating a Process Workspace. By default, users are offered all of the Data Models in the team, with an action to request access, which sends an email to the admin. If you disable access requests in Admin & Settings, users creating a Process Workspace are only offered the Data Models that they already have access to. A user with the Analyst role and the MANAGE_GENERAL_SETTINGS permission can also enable or disable access requests. For the documentation, see Creating a Process Workspace.

Studio (2023-12-07)

Enhancements to language support
  • Use the new Add language button in the package settings to enable any of the ISO-639 recognized languages for a Studio package, enabling users to view your package in that language where translated content is available. The new languages are partially supported, which means they’ll only be used in the scope of Studio, packages, and assets. The rest of the Celonis platform supports the nine languages that were supported previously (English, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Brazilian Portuguese, Russian, Spanish).

  • The missing translations dialog now groups the generated translation keys by the type of source they were extracted from (such as a table, KPI, or event log). We’ve also put in a search capability so you can find keys more easily, along with some other usability improvements.

  • We’ve added a dropdown selector in the top navigation bar for end users to pick their preferred language for an app’s UI. The dropdown includes the languages that you’ve enabled in the package settings, including any custom translations that you create. If a user doesn’t pick a language, we’ll default to the preferred language given in their user profile.

Business Miner (2023-12-04)

Manage permissions for your Process Workspaces

You can now choose who can use, share, edit, delete, or give others access to, each Process Workspace that you create in Business Miner. In the context menu for the Process Workspace (the three vertical dots), select Manage Permissions to change the permissions for other users, groups, or applications. You'll need the Analyst role in the Celonis team - users with the Member role can't access this function.

As the creator of a Process Workspace, you have all the permissions on it by default. You can give users with the Member role permission to use the Process Workspace to create Explorations and Insights, and to share the Process Workspace with other users through the Share buttons. You can give any of the permissions to other users with the Analyst role - other Analysts can't edit your Process Workspace's settings or manage the permissions for it unless you let them. For the documentation, see Permissions in Process Workspaces.

Studio (2023-12-01)

Upgraded Apps and Studio navigation, with enhanced View editing experience (Limited Availability Program for Studio)

Our limited availability program for Studio enhancements has started. The scope includes:

  • An intuitive and coherent Apps (for business users) and Studio navigation experience with improved search and guided creation flows.

  • Simplified view editing to empower analysts to quickly and easily build dashboards and apps using drag-and-drop, visualization recommendations and integrated action setup.

  • Enhanced PQL building functionality that simplifies the selection and aggregation of data while building your components. You can write PQL queries locally and see results immediately, or tap into a Knowledge Model or centralized knowledge definitions from our new Knowledge Hub (also in Limited Availability).

  • The capability to set up email actions directly in table components. You can define the email and link it to a selection in a table, use attributes from the record in the email template, and set up an action button, without leaving the table.

For all the changes and available capabilities, see Studio (new experience).
