    Hello Simon,

    Web Intelligence is a relational reporting product and will always have challenges with true hierarchies.

    "Expand to level" is something Web intelligence is not offering.

    Web Intelligence will always have limitations.

    take a look here:

    If you wanna be able to really use hierarchies you need to take a look at the Analysis products.

    • Hello Sharma,

      yes - Analysis Office and Analysis OLAP should be your default choice assuming your source is SAP BW or SAP HANA.

      Web Intelligence can be used - but you should be aware of all the limitations and those limitations are something that won't change as the nature of the product is relational and not multidimensional / analytical.

      Analysis does support RRI

      Analysis Office also supports scheduling

      Security is always SAP BW - BI Authorization.
