Multi-environment Dashboards

Hi SCN people.

I'm managing a group of developers of dashboards and related Web Services, based on latest istance(s) of Report(s).

The developers group works in Develop environment with .xlf dashboards, Qaaws Services and source web-i reports (used to generate the qaaws).

At the end of the develop task, I promote the objects (.xlf or .swf, report and qaaws) in the Production environment.

Here's the problem: The Qaaws promoted in the Production environment is pointing to the develop environment, i.e. it has as source the last istance of the original report present in the develop environment. The target, in Production environment, is to use the last istance of the report located in Production environment.

The only solution I see is to regenerate the QaaWs service, modifying the web-i report present in Production environment, and change the connection parameters of the xlf dashboard, but: The developers group can't make changes on Production environment (public documents, nor Qaaws).

The QaaWs client doesn't work with .unx universes, and not allow changes to this kind of Qaaws (based on a web-i report).

Is there another way to solve this problem?

Thanks in advance

    Hi Vincent,

    You can use Relative Path instead of the absolute path. When designing the Dashboard using QAAWS connection, we need to make sure we just pass the relative path in the web service URL.

    (a) The change which needs to be made is as follow:
    - Original Web service URL: "http :/< server name>/dswsbobje/qaawsservices/queryasservice".
    -The Changed URL should be: /dswsbobje/qaawsservices/queryasservice.
    -Import the changed swf to new server and the data shows in Info view.

    Make sure that you do not change the WSDL url.

    Please refer the KBA also.

    • Hi, mr Sangiai

      The error you mentionned, I see, is an LCM error (from the promotion management). I don't know why does it occur. Often, during Promotion jobs similar errors occurs. After I try to restart services, change parameter on CMC or restart the entire SIA, unsuccesfully, I change server where launch the promotion jobs. I.E: If I get an unrecoverable error launching a Promotion job from the Development BI4 Server, I try to create and launch the same job in the Production BI4 Server and yhe error often doesn't occur. It's a workaround, but after I surely create a message to the SAP Support.

      Hoping to help you!
