WebI Publication without charts


I created a WebI publication, that sends a report as PDF containing charts to several users. Unfortunately the report is created without charts, instead just a white space is shown.

I know that it has to do with the Vizualisation Service and the parameters

Visualization Engine Swap Timeout (in seconds)

Visualization Engine Cleanup Timeout (in seconds)

I set both to the maximum value of 3600. But the publication runs longer than 1 hour.

In some cases it's possible to split the publication or the report but this would be just a workaround. How can I get the charts for reports running >1 hour?

    Including visualization service in proper APS may help. There is an SAP KBA addressing this issue. Cant recall the number now 😔. You can search for it in SMP.

      Thanks Arijit, but in our case the Visualization Service is included in the server group and we just gave the preference to a server group.

      The problem occurs only when the duration of the run is >1h, all other publications run fine with charts.

    Hi Hans ,

    Publication run time is depend on the

    *Amount of data is fetching

    *No of users in the publication instance

    Lets say you have 5 users and report takes 5 minutes then it'll be 25 Minutes for publications.

      Hi Sathish,

      It depends on your publication settings

      One database fetch for all recipients: One database query for all recipients, filter is applied on report level

      One database fetch per recipient: One database query for each recipient, depending on your job server settings the reports refresh and generations run parallel, it means for example that 10 queries are  executed in parallel on your database
