Distributing Dashboard to Another Business Objects BI4.x Install Platform


Hello SCN Dashboarders,

I have a dashboard, based on Webi report and Web Services Connections.

How do I deploy or implement or distribute to my end customer(s)

The customer will have the same universe and Webi report. However, it will be customers own environment (Business Objects install environment/server).

I am assuming to deploy the dashboard on Customer site , I will have to do the following:

1. Create new BI Services for each of the blocks in the Webi report

2. Create new Connections in dashboard or each of the Webi report blocks, based on the Bi Services in 1 above

3. Re- Bind all the Output and Input for each connection to the Dashboard (Excel cells) - (If this is the case then it is going to be painful?)

4. Then test it and deploy the dashboard as fit for customer.

And I will have to do this for each customer ??

Any one got any experience on this ?
