    Anyone aware of an easy way to find information about type and version of the CMS Database?


    We would like to perform a query or check a file to obtain this information from a number of BI installations, whether it's SQL Anywhere, DB2 etc.


    Kind Regards

    I am doing an install on my dev server for BI 4.1 sp6. I have created a 64 bit odbc connection for my sql server. It is not displaying when I go to install nothing show up unless I select the option to consume dsn created under wow64 but these are my 32 bit connections. I can see the connection in the windows administrator odbc 64 connections and it tests successfully but I don't see it in the install options - even when I refresh. Any ideas? I have logged a ticket but hoping I hear sooner here.

    Hi Experts,


    Could you please help with the query to identify the list of recurring reports associated to a specific universe ?

    Hi folks,


    We have an issue with multiple sessions in the CMC when we are logging into BI 4.1 SP6 via custom.jsp by using the logon token method.  The real issue is when we are subsequently looking at the BI audit  database and find that the Logon events (in ADS_EVENT) have one Session_ID and the subsequent viewing and refreshing of reports have a different Session_ID.  We are going to have to load various bits of the audit database into our own application audit database.  We would like to be able to get at IP address, PC Name, etc. but these are stored against the Logon events and because the Session_ID's are different, we cannot seem to link back to the appropriate Logon event.  This is an issue as we would like to append a single row of data into our database which has report name, username, date/time, machine name, SQL and IP address.


    To hopefully achieve this I've been attempting to log in using the serialised session method instead of the logon token method in the hope that this will be tied to the single session.  However, I'm not sure how to get this working on BI 4.1 SP6 or if it works at all.  The two snippets of code below are using both methods.  The logon token method works, the serialised session method does not.  The serialised session method as XI 3.1 code I believe so the question is what, if anything, can I change to get it to work?  Could it be that the ivsLogonSession parameter no longer exists and that it's now called something else?  Hopefully this approach hasn't been deprectaed.  Or perhaps there's another way to achieve what we need?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  



    This logon token method works (but we have the issue described above):


    IEnterpriseSession enterpriseSession = CrystalEnterprise.getSessionMgr().logon(username, password, bicluster, authType);

    ILogonTokenMgr tokenMgr = enterpriseSession.getLogonTokenMgr();

    token = tokenMgr.getDefaultToken();





    This serialised session method does not work and when it gets to the sendRedirect I get a Page cannot be displayed error:


    IEnterpriseSession enterpriseSession = CrystalEnterprise.getSessionMgr().logon(username, password, bicluster, authType);

    String encodedSes = enterpriseSession.getSerializedSession();

    Hi all,


    I would like to know what is the best strategy to upgrade (from BOE 3.1 to BI 4.1) WebI reports stored locally on the user's machines.


    It is necessary to load them into the BI Platform so that we can upgrade them too or it can be sufficient to change the source of the webi report once the upgrade of the universe in the new platform has been done?


    Or there is another possible solution ?

    We have some multilingual webi reports in BO 4.1 SP3. These reports has report names, column headers etc which can be seen in French, Spanish and English depending on the language setting of the user. The column headers (objects) has been maintained in Bex while report names has been maintained through translation manager. The reports has mandatory selection criteria (set in Bex queries) which is populated by users during run time. The purging option was working fine when it was originally introduced in English. However when the French and Spanish translations were introduced the purge options fails to work.


    When we purged the reports (using a Admin id) in English it works for English (i.e. do not see any data in prompt) but we see default values in Spanish. We then opened the report using a Spanish userid (admin id) and purged the report. The report works for Spanish (i.e. do not see any data in prompt) but we see default values in English. Basically the data is purged for the last userid (and language) it was purged against but strangely keeps a default value for the other language (although those has been purged before).


    Really appreciate if anyone can share their experience on this issue.

  • 11/09/15--06:06: Security messed up?
  • I'm trying to create a new folder right below the Root Folder (Public Folder). While trying this, I get an:


    "Sorry, you do not have the right to 'Add objects to the folder' (ID: 1) for 'Test' (ID: 14329). Please contact your administrator if you require this right."


    I checked the rights and the used User (Administrator) has the rights. I although tried to move a folder, same error.


    This error occured today while trying to migrate some Conent using the UMT from 3.1 to 4.1. Last week I did the same and everything was fine. We are in the middle of the migration and creating some new access-level but did not touch the top folder.


    Any advice?


    Thanks in advance

    I have install a new Sybase ASE and SAP BO BI platform 4.1 SP6 In a server. I created 2 new databases for CMS and audit in Sybase ASE. During the BI platform installation, I have selected configure an existing database and select SAP Sybase Adaptive Server Enterprise as the database type for CMS and auditing.


    I have entered the information in the CMS and auditing database connection information:

    Sybase service name: [database server name]

    User name: sa

    Password: [sa password]

    Checked the Reset existing database checkbox


    I noticed the database configuration is point to master database instead of the new databases that I have created for CMS and auditing during the installation.


    May I know how can I point to the new databases during the installation?


    Thank you.

    I need to install a custom font to BI Platform. I followed the steps on SAP Note 2010036. The custom font isn't working. I created a Crystal Reports for Enterprise Report to test the font. If i open the report in BI Platform (on the client, on which the font is installed) the font is working correctly. If i send this report to BI-Inbox as PDF, the font isn't working.

    How can i achieve that font is working on pdf ?

    Anyone an idea ?

  • 11/10/15--11:42: Business Obejcts Eege
  • We run BO Edge 3.1 that stores all of our Crystal Reports.  IS there a way to query something or a program we can buy that will look at all CRs in Edge and tell me the tables they utilize?  Thanks.
