Refresh at Runtime and Dynamic Recipients


I have a publication with dynamic recipients for a WebI report. I deactivated the check box "Refresh At Runtime" at the source doument and deactivated the refresh on open-setting at the report as well.

Unfortunately the data provider of the report gets refresh each time the publication runs. Is there any limitation, that the deactivated "Refresh at Runtime"-option doesn't work for dynamic recipients?

    Hi Hans,

    The basic function of scheduling is that it refreshes the object before sending it to recipients. So if you schedule a report or publication, it will refresh the report/source document before sending.

    And Refresh on Open is a view option. When you open report in view/edit mode, if this option is checked, it will refresh the report before opening.

    I hope this clarifies your doubt.

    • Hi Hans,

      I have experienced exactly the same problem and have done a bit of testing around the issue, and this is what i have found.

      In some circumstances a migrated webi document from XI 3.1 to BI4.0 SP6 and in a publication refreshes at runtime even if you de select the refresh at runtime option. Performing the same action on a report which was created in BI4 SP6 within a publication and it works as it should i.e no refresh

      Did you get anywhere with a resolution? i am going to open SAP Case
