It also includes minor fixes for custom datasets. This patch should be installed after the Esri US 2014 Data Update has been installed.


Esri® announces Esri Business Analyst Server 10.2.2, 2014 Data Update Patch. This patch should be installed after the Esri US 2014 Data Update has been installed.

The patch enables certain features within the Segmentation Tasks group to operate with the new 2014 Tapestry Segmentation data. Without this patch, these Segmentation tasks will fail or may work incorrectly.

The Esri 2104 Tapestry Segmentation Data incorporates the effects of growth and decline in the last decade on established consumer markets plus the emergence of new markets populated by Millennials and immigrants. Reflecting the increasing diversity among American consumers, Tapestry now includes 67 distinct market segments and 14 summary groups. This patch also includes a change made in order to better handle reports that are requested based on standard geography levels of custom Business Analyst datasets. It deals specifically with the issues listed below under Issues Addressed with this Patch.

Issues Addressed with this patch

  • NIM104630 - Business Analyst Server 10.2.2 returns an error for summary reports based on custom datasets (Brazil) from previous Business Analyst Server 10.1.

    Description: Trying to use Esri Tapestry Segmentation data from the Esri Business Analyst 2014 US Data will result in errors. This is due to several changes in the Tapestry Segmentation data from previous years. The changes include adding new segments, renaming some that existed previously and changing from using numeric values to define the tapestry segment to using alphanumeric values.

  • BUG-000081408 - All Feature Classes in the dbGeoUnits.gdb need to be listed in the GeographyUnitTables section of the Dataset Description XML file in order for all Standard Geography Level Trade Area Requests to work in Business Analyst Server.
