What’s New?


Historical Data

We have added a new Property Data Type you can add to your entities. This new Property Data Type, Historical Data, allows you to add multiple data entries for a property on different dates. For example, if you want to keep a history of your Sector Allocations, you’ll now be able to upload Sector Allocation data for each date, and refer back to the historical data set when required.

Adding a Historical Data property to your Data Dictionary

  1. Go to System Administration (⚙️) in the primary navigation bar

  2. Go to Data Dictionary in the primary sidebar.

  3. To see your Historical Data properties you can select Historical Data in the secondary sidebar.

  4. To add a new Historical Data property click on the plus.

  5. Select Add Historical Data Property.

  6. Fill out the Edit Property form, similar to how an Allocations Property form would be filled.

  7. Click Save

  8. Your new Historical Data Property will be added to the section.

Note: You can configure Historical Data Properties for Class, Fund, Benchmark and Account data.

  2. Select Data

  3. Select the entity.

  4. Select Historical Datasets.

  7. Type in the currency you want to link to the property.

  8. Select the date for which you want to add data.

  10. If you want to view different data sets, select the Existing Property.

  11. Click on the Select Existing Date field.

  12. Select the date of the data you want to view.

  13. The data section will update to display a different data set; in this example to easily show the differences between the dates, the latest date still requires data.

Note: Data sets for multiple dates can be added for one property and currency combination by repeating steps 6 - 9.

System Administration

Authentication Assertion Verification Check

Using an assertion verification check with your single sign on (SSO) strategy allows you to redirect a user to another web page, if the user’s attribute doesn’t match a required value.

For example if a user that signs in via SSO still needs to verify their email address with your Identity Provider, you can redirect the user to a web page that informs them they need to verify their email address.

The user will not be able to log in before the value coming in from the Identity Provider matches the Verification value.

Configuring your assertion verification check

  1. Go to System Administration (⚙️) in the primary navigation bar.

  2. Go to Authentication in the primary sidebar.

  3. Go to Login Strategies in the secondary navigation bar.

  4. Select your SSO Login Strategy.

  5. Enable the Assertion Verification Redirect toggle.

  6. Paste in the Assertion Attribute which you want to use as the verification check.

  7. Add the value which needs to come from the Identity Provider which will allow the user to log in.

  8. Add the web address where you want to redirect the user if their assertion verification check fails.

  9. Click Save
