Bug fixes in December 2018

Fixed saving old dashboards after changing visibility settings

We faced the issue that it was not possible for minubo user to save Dashboards after changing the setting regarding the visibility and the possibility of editing for other users.

Fixed comparison values for detail pages on old Dashboards

We faced the issue that no comparison values were displayed on the detail page. Now you can select the interval quarter and month and the comparison values are displayed again.

Fixed saving of web pivots into folders

We also solved the problem that it was not possible to move and save existing Web Pivots into another folder permanently.

Improvements in December 2018

Added documentation texts to configure Rights and Roles in minubo more easily

To be more transparent about the function of your rights and roles we serve you with more information how to define rights and roles and adding description to existing rights and roles.

URL mapping via hostname and contextpath

We improved the shop url mapping by adding another parsing rule. Now, the mapping can be based on both hostname and context path at the same time. Example: www.myFirstSampleShop.de/ch/something.html, www.myFirstSampleShop.de/at/something.html and www.mySecondSampleShop.de/ch/something.html can be mapped into distinct shops based on their hostname and their first element in the context path.

New Features in December 2018

Added new measures and attributes to analyze bundles in minubo

Until recently it was difficult to analyze the performance of bundle sales and their components in minubo because the data model only allowed to integrate transactional data aggregated on the bundle level or on the bundle component level. Now, you are able to analyze bundle and product performance at the same time. We added bundle attributes and measures in the data model. With these new attributes and measures, the user can choose freely to view sales on the aggregated bundle or component level.

  • Bundle > Name = Name of the bundle
  • Bundle > Number = Number of the bundle
  • Bundle Items Sold = "How many units of a bundle have been sold?" (Equivalent measures for items ordered etc. exist as well)
  • Product Bundles Ordered = "How many distinct bundles have been ordered?"

For now, bundle attributes and measures can be used with the data being provided via Generic interface. For customers of other data sources, the new bundle attributes and measures are hidden by default. To add this new feature on your account, please contact your Key Account Manager.


This first prototype of the new Dashboards already offers numerous features:

By unifying the data model, all metrics and attributes are available to you like in the rest of the minubo suite. The prototype comes with four visualizations. Single values, donuts, line and column diagrams are already possible. The time period can be configured much more flexibly. Widgets can be freely placed on the dashboard and can be resized according to your needs. Widget and Dashboard can be filtered by all available attributes.

We will gladly provide you with this prototype before the final completion, as we are very much looking forward to your feedback and would like to include it in the consideration of further features. At the same time we would like to give you the chance to access all metrics and attributes of the minubo data model already now. In the course of the coming year we will release many more features. In the first quarter of 2019, we will initially add the following features:

Compare metric development to a comparison period More extensive filter options A freely configurable detail view for each widget

Until the release of the final version, you can use the existing version of the dashboard tool parallel to the prototype. With the release of the final version, we also offer a migration process.

New Feature: Rights & Roles

Easily manage data access and protect sensitive information

  • "Rights & Roles" is a role-based rights management system. It allows key users of minubo to deny or grant access to certain metrics and attributes within minubo for roles.
  • Individual users can be assigned to one or more role to inherit the access rights of the role.
  • The combination of roles defines the individual access rights for each user.

How to set up Rights & Roles

  • Roles can be defined by the minubo login administrator of your organization
  • Navigate to Account -> Settings -> Rights & Roles
  • Each user has a default role that can be edited as well
  • By default all users have access to all measures and attributes
  • Roles can be granted three possible rights for each attribute or measure:
    • Allow: Using and viewing the measure or attribute is explicitly permitted.
    • Depends: Using and viewing the measure or attribute depends on the configuration of the remaining roles. If any other role denies usage, the usage is denied. If any other role grants access and no other role denies usage, the usage is granted. If there is no other usage right defined, the usage is denied.
    • Deny: Regardless of access rights in other roles, using and viewing of the measure or attribute is explicitly denied.

Barcode attribute now allows multiple barcodes


The barcode attribute was a single value attribute so far. Now, the attribute has been changed to allow for multiple values instead. Multiple barcodes are displayed in minubo as a list. However, you can filter for every single barcode separately.


Some customers want to work with more than one barcode for a product within minubo.


Multiple barcodes can be delivered via the generic interface. Barcodes can be separated by commas or a different sign of your preference. . For now it is possible to add this data via the generic interface. To use another interface, please contact your Key Account Manager.

Added new attributes “Sale -> On-Site Category -> Level 1-5”

We implemented the possibility to analyze the categories of your products on your web shop. For this we added an optional list of on-site category levels (up to 5) which indicate the categories where the product was picked from for each single order. These may be different from the default product categories.

The On-Site Categories one to five can be useful to understand which category is the most successful or the most easiest way for your customers to find their needed products. If there is more than one way to lead to a product you can analyze which one is the most successful one.

Until now it is possible to add this data via the generic interface. If you want to use another interface, please contact your Key Account Manager. If you decide to use the new On-Site Categories, please provide the corresponding csv file “SalesOrderPosition” via the generic interface and put the levels of your category in column “OnSiteCategoryLevels”. To activate the enrichment or in case of any questions, do not hesitate to contact your Key Account Manager. They will be happy to help you and to advise you in setting up your new category structure.

Important changes to the data model

Calculation change of contribution Margin II and III Rate

  • As announced, the Contribution Margin Rates II and III are now calculated based on Net Revenue instead of Contribution Margin I and II.
  • We adjusted the calculation to be in line with common market practices.
  • Contact us, in case you still need the former measures.

New attribute Supplier > Number

  • Supplier > Number is now available as an attribute in minubo.
  • Contact your Key Account Manager to discuss data deliver options in case this attribute is not filled from your system by default.

New Help released

New Help area prototype released

  • Navigate to 'Help' and click 'Overview' to open the new help area. Browse through the 'Help' via the content tree on the left.
  • The new help already contains an extensive documentation of the structure and components of the minubo data model and some of the tools of the Commerce Intelligence Suite.
  • "How is this measure calculated?"
    --> There are detail pages for over 500 measures and 170 attributes including formulas, time references and measure modifiers.
  • "Can I use these attributes and measures together?
    --> Through the completely new documentation of the minubo data levels, you gain complete transparency over the relationship of attributes and measures.
  • Let us know which topics we should cover next!

Important change to Contribution Margin Rate II and III

In calendar week 35 we will change the calculation of Contribution Margin II Rate and Contribution Margin III Rate!

Historically, these rates were defined as percent of the previous Contribution Margin Value. We adapt the calculation to be in line with common practice in the market and with the Commerce Reporting Standard. Hence, Contribution Margin Rates will now be based on Net Revenue. The calculations change to:

  • "Contribution Margin II Rate" = "Contribution Margin II" / "Net Revenue"
  • "Contribution Margin III Rate" = "Contribution Margin III" / "Net Revenue"

If the current calculation is still desired in your particular use case, please contact your Key Account Manager to request the addition. In any way, we are always keen on your feedback, so let us know what you think!
