Can we use Insight 5.x for KAFTA 1.2?


Although Insight 5.2/5.3/5.3.1 ware released after KAFTA 1.2.0, it can also be used for this version of KAFTA. But after installing/upgrading you will have to perform extra steps:

  • Please, ensure that the ConsolidatedReporting module had been copied into folder with name ‘KAFTA’ (another name is not supported)
  • The 'KAFTA' folder should be placed in ‘root’ folder of installed Insight only (e.g. C:\Program Files\Kofax\Insight 5.2.0, for Insight 5.2, etc.); other options are not allowed.
  • Please, make sure the ConsolidatedReporting module is available by path, specified in both 'Minute Hourly Plan' and 'Hourly Execution plan' .
    1. Open Studio
    2. Open 'Execution Plans > Hourly Execution Plan'
    3. For step 'Execution Batch File', make sure 'File' property has correct path to 'Hourly.bat' file of ConsolidatedReporting package and fix it, if necessary (see screenshot)
    4. Save changes

    5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 for 'Execution Plans > Minute Execution Plan' (see screenshot)

      • You also have to modify Schedule options for the 'Hourly Execution Plan' to the avoid possible deletion of data from the KAFTA database

  1. Open Studio
  2. Open 'Execution Plans > Hourly Execution Plan'
  3. Click on 'Schedule options'
  4. Change the 'From date' property to the 'To date minus' option, and specify 7 days.(see screenshot)
  5. Save changes

Then all will should properly.

One more thing, eventually you can see some error messages in Consolidated.log file, such as:
    2015-12-01 18:15:22,506 [1] ERROR Can`t deserialize document. Name=Administrator Resources Category=View
    System.InvalidOperationException: There is an error in XML document (5153, 10). ---> System.InvalidOperationException: The specified type was not recognized:     name='ExtendedCategorizedChartAppearance', namespace='', at <BaseComponentAppearance xmlns=''>.

Actually that isn't a problem, it'sjust ConsolidatedReporting cannot deserialize some objects (views) , but it doesn't use them during dataload. You can ignore such errors.
