Notepad++ for TM1 Rules & TI – Updated!

With the new release of Notepad++ yesterday to v6.4.1, I thought it was a brilliant time to update the TM1 Turbo Integrator and Rules Syntax files to be based on TM1 v10.1.0 Reference Guide.

The new version xml file can be found here: TM1 v10.1 Notepad++ update

In this release, we’ve added a couple of new TI functions such as:

  1. Synchronize: Used in a TI script to force serial execution of a designated set of its processes.
  2. CubeSaveData: Serialises a cube

We’ve also moved some functions into a more appropriate grouping (based on Official IBM Cognos TM1 10.1.0 Ref Guide) and also fixed the IF statement problem in the previous release.

If you haven’t installed a user defined language in Notepad++ before, please follow the instructions below:

  1. Start Notepad++ and select View from the top toolbar and then select User Defined Dialogue.
  2. Click Import. Select the TM1 v10.1 update.xml file provided above and click Open, then restart Notepad++.
  3. To use the add-on, go to Language and select TM1 from the list.

Below are some screenshots of Cube Rules and TI process in Notepad++ after applying the language markup:
