Setting up your project
First things first, we need to setup a Sublime Project for your TM1 environment.
- Open up Sublime Text so you have blank text input window
- Open up the Command Palette (CMD-SHIFT-P on mac, CTRL-SHIFT-P on windows) and enter 'tm1 config'.
- Select 'TM1: Config - Create New TM1 Project'
- Follow the steps to add in the connection parameters for your remote TM1 server.
- At the end, you will be prompted to confirm your selections. Select 'Yes' if they're correct. If there as an error, press 'escape' and start over.
If everything is correct, you will see a Sidebar with your project name containing a .sublime-project file
Populate Rules and Processes from Remote Server
- Open the command palette, and enter 'tm1 get'
- Select 'TM1: Get - Pull Objects From Server'. This will connect to the remote server and pull all Rules and Process files. They will be placed in sub-folders within your project
Edit Rules and Processes
- To edit rules and processes, simply open the file in the sidebar and make your changes.
- To push the changes to the remote TM1 server:
- Ensure the rule or process you want to push is the open, and active tab
- Open the command palette, and enter 'tm1 put'. Select 'TM1: Put - Push Object to Server'
- This will trigger a rule or TI process update.
- If there are syntax issues, they will be highlighted and the update will be cancelled.
Execute a TI Process
To execute a TI process:
- Open the command palette, and enter 'tm1 run'. Select 'TM1: Run - Execute Turbo Integrator Process'
- The currently open TI process will be selected automatically, you can change the name of the process you want to execute.
- If there are any parameters in the TI process, you will be prompted to input the parameters
- Finally, you will be asked to confirm that the parameters are correct
The process will execute in the background.
You will see a new folder created in the side bar called 'Turbo Integrator Logs'. With a subfolder created for every TI process execution.
Within these folders, you can access the relevant tm1server.log lines, as well as any TM1ProcessError files that were created during process execution
You can clear all created log files using the command palette.
You can view all of the running threads on a TM1 server using the 'tm1 console' options from the command palette:
You can kill a running thread with the 'kill thread' option in the command palette.
Turbo Integrator Rule Auto-Format
There are a couple ways to auto-format your processes. On demand, or On save. These options can all be accessed in the command palette with the command 'tm1 format'
If you enable auto-formatting. The TI process will be formatted automatically when pulled from the server, as well as when you save the file.
There are a handful of completions automatically built-in.
Completions will automatically be created for all cubes. You can tab through each of the fields to make changes:
Same with EXECUTEPROCESS
You can generate a 'Locals' section for metadata/data sections based on existing cubes
You can generate editable blocks for various types of datasources and other process properties:
All Rule and Turbo Integrator functions should have auto-complete options available. You can also click to be taken directly to the IBM documentation for a given function. Just click the 'Documentation' link in the window.
