Assume that you use the PREDICT or sp_rxPredict function in SQL Server 2017 ML Services in the following scenarios:

  • When you use the PREDICT function to generate predicated values or scores based on a rxDTree, rxDForest, or rxBTrees model, and the columns that are needed to make the prediction are missing from the input data of the WITH clause, the execution would fail without a detailed error message that states which column is missing.

  • Learning rate in the tree models (rxDtree, rxBtrees, and rxDforest) was not included in the serialized real-time model. Therefore, a default value (0.1) instead of the user-specified value was being used after unserialization. This affects both real-time scoring and native scoring when you use the sp_rxPredict and PREDICT functions.
