General Limitations

  • Sisense for Windows handles boolean field types differently to Sisense for Linux. If you use the boolean field type, when migrating to Sisense for Linux, enable the boolToTextCapitalized feature so that Sisense for Linux correctly resolves lower-case boolean values as upper-case.
  • Windows authentication can’t be used as an authentication method in Sisense for Linux.
  • Generic ODBC and OLE DB drivers aren't supported in Sisense for Linux. Instead, use JDBC connectors. For more information, see Connecting to JDBC.
