  • 09/04/15--06:18: Webi bursting
  • Hello,


    I have a bursting report that would burst to many different customers. Customer name was used in the Profile Values.

    And I would like to add this Profile Values into the Email Subject in the Publication. Does anyone know the instance title for this? Normally when you have a Recurring you can use %SI_NAME% in the Subject for it to capture the Instance title.


    Many thanks,

    Hello everyone,


    As you know, XI 3.1 and BI 4.1 allows to create discussion thread on almost repository objects. Into this thread, users can create new messages or reply to a user/group.

    I try to acces the discussion objects via Java SDK but I didn't find how to do that and I didn't find a post on that subjet anywhere.


    Does someone has already done ?

    We had .NET SDK Code that was working in 3.1 but seem to be running into few issues with some methods in 4.1 .

    One example was copying a report or an object from one folder to another . It throws an error : File Repository Server Error


    Below is a code snippet and also attached the whole code.


    While debugging the code fails at red.


                        if (sourceObject.Kind == "Webi")
                         query = "Select * FROM CI_INFOOBJECTS WHERE SI_ID = " + sourceObject.ID.ToString();

                        InfoObjects boInfoObjectsToCopy = GetInfoStore(infoObj).Query(query);


    foreach (CIRTInfoObject destinationObject in Destination)
                                    InfoObject infoObject = boInfoObjectsToCopy[1];
                      InfoObject infoObjectCopy = boInfoObjectsToCopy.Copy(infoObject, CeCopyObject.ceCopyNewObjectNewFilesKeepFileName);

                                    infoObjectCopy.ParentID = destinationObject.ID;
                                    response.IsSuccessfull = true;



    I'm attaching the code. Any thoughts appreciated.

  • 09/04/15--15:27: Two web servers installation
  • Hi,

      I am going to deploy two web servers for the web tier.  The architecture will look like this -


         WEB1     -       WEB2

            APP1   -    APP2

            DataWare - CMS


    I have done deployment before with one web server.  Everything was pretty straight forward. I need no guidance on that, I just did a production rollout recently. But now I will need two web servers, and there will be a load balancer.  Can someone with experience tell me specifically what considerations I need when installing Tomact on two different hosts for BOE?  Please - the more specific the better.  I assume there will be some additional config already. 





    P.S.  Please don't point me in the direction of that high level "Design Pattern" link.  That thing is not helpful.

    I'm trying to develop an universe using datafederation : I have 50 databases with the same structure on different sites and I try to insert into my data foundation 50 connections.

    Each time to add a connnection, you select a color to represent the associated tables. The problem is that there are only 32 colors available and when you try to add another connection, IDT tells you that you've already used the color...


    Is there a workaround to add more than 32 connections?


    Thanks in advance for your help.

  • 09/06/15--21:25: Accessing Web Server
  • Hello All,


    Currently we are using SAP BO XI 3.1 SP03. In this version we have separate servers for reporting and web application (tomcat). 


    Now we are in process of upgrade server to SAP BI 4.1 SP06 in separate boxes. We have installed tow new servers in separate boxed as in Server 1 with SIA, Tomcat (shutdown), Oracle as DB for CMS and AUDIT and client tools. In Server 2 have installed only BI4 Tomcat 7.


    Please advise what are the required configurations I need to setup in server 2 (Web server) to access the Tomcat from server 1(Application/Reporting Server).

    Hi all,


    I would like to solve this publisihing use case:


    On a publication with email destination be able to attach two or more pdf based on the same webi document but with different results that came from different execution parameters.


    I've tried to add two times the same document on a publication but it is not possible.


    I would like to find a better solution than create copies of the document in order to add them on a publication and after that schedule it to deliver an email with several pdfs (based on the same webi document but each of them with different results that came from different execution parameters).


    Does anyone have an idea?


    Thanks in advance,

    I'm working on BI4.1, SP5, patch 4.


    I would like to know if it is possible to create a display format on a business object via SDK (for num and date).

    I couldn't find a corresponding method in the slsdk javadoc.


    Isn't it handled yet?

    If not: is it planed to be handled in a future patch?

    Hi BO Admins,


    Facing issue with Webi server -server intelligence agent for this server is unavailable. System Integration Testing Environment


    Back ground :

    Current Version : BI 4.1 SP5

    Linux : RHEL 6

    RAM - 16GB /6 core CPU

    Webi REPORTS - 150, 4 Universes (.unv)

    Reporting DB : Oracle 11g

    1 webi server, 2 APS - one for Webi and 1 for rest of services, other services like crystal/Dashboard/WACS/Monitoring APS are all stopped and distabled


    Old version : BOXI 3.1 SP7

    Linux : RHEL 6

    RAM - 8GB /1 core CPU

    Webi REPORTS - 150, 4 Universes (.unv)

    Reporting DB : Oracle 11g

    Wiped off BOXI 3.1 sp7 on the VM box. Took CMS DB/FRS back up. Installed BI 4.1 sp5 with the same user as used for BOXI 3.1 sp7 - Installation was successful. At the time of Installation .bash_profile was pointing to Oracle 10g -64bit client as the customer did not have 11g client at that point in time. Run the UMT on a separate Windows box and migrated the contents in incremental upgrade way from BOXI 3.1 sp7 to BI 4.1 SP5.


    During testing found that when ever reports are scheduled 10 at a time , AJS is set to 10, webi server goes down with error "server intelligence agent for this server is unavailable" once even AJS went down with same error. Start from CMC doesnt help always SIA has to be restarted. This happens after around 30-40 jobs are run in a day. Increased webi memory from default 6GB to 9GB and now even removed the memory limit. Still webi goes down at the end of job run and cannot come up on its own neither start works from CMC.


    bash_profile has been now pointed to Oracle 11g 64bit DB Client but still services are unable to register them selves with SIA


    Any suggestions would greatly help

    Hello Experts,


    We are using command line to perform the complete upgrade as source and destination are on non-windows platform.

    Upgrade completes 100%, however observed that except Universes all other objects are getting Migrated.


    Below are the error details. Attaching the complete log file.

    We are currently trialing the split deployment of the web tier as per the document "Improving the user experience in SAP BI Platform 4.0 with Apache and WDeploy by James Rapp". This was configured sucessfully on our Sandbox BI4.1SP6 deployment.

    However, we have since deployed BO explorer on the same platform, which has corrupted the BI launchpad page via apache (via tomcat is still working fine).  Does anyone know if the split deployment will work with a BO Explorer install?


    Many Thanks

    Hello all,


    I've been playing around with some customisation options in the Launch Pad, but want to know how/if I can do more.


    So far, I have done/been able to:


    - Created a workspace using BI Workspace


    - Changed the precompiled.jsp.files.use = true to precompiled.jsp.files.use = false in the file.


    - Changed colour theme, names and custom images in the Launch Pad, through file and image locations.


    - Altered the logon.jsp file to show extra information in the logon page of the Launch Pad


    What I want to know is if it is possible to create more customisation options like in the logon.jsp file I did, such as creating a link on the home page of the launch pad that when clicked will run a custom script. I also wanted to know how do the pages for the Launch pad link together, for example, when you click the log in button, I cant find anywhere the states (for example) openHomePage.jsp, or anywhere where links to pages are followed - click this, open this, click that, open that.


    So far I've looked everywhere but not managed to find what I am looking for.


    Many thanks

    Any resolution to move forward will be greatly helpful.
