SAP Business Object Report Distribution

Hi, We have 100’s of webi reports that need to be view on demand and as well as subscription/Distribution Business object have two options for the subscription. 1. Scheduling: This option forcing us to hardcode the prompt value and that making 1000’s of schedule jobs which is nightmare to maintain 2. Publication: Publication should not have any mandatory prompt and few of our reports need to have mandatory security variable prompt (Cannot make it as an optional due to complex security logic). So, this option will not work for us. I read about third party tool that can feed the prompt and distribute the report. What would be the better option for this requirement? Thanks Vj

    Hi,

    Can you please elaborate about the issues you have in second approach. What do you mean by security prompt? Is your data security based on prompt value? Also, let us know about your challenge in converting mandatory prompts into optional.

    Thanks,

    Sameer

      Hi,

      I cannot comment on infoburst part.

      Can you explain the scenario or bw complexity behind this mandatory prompt. I will try discussing with my BW team. Also, are you sure DB Credentials are being used for your bo users?

      My whole point is that data security should be automated. If you have a report without any prompt, it should show only the appropriate data for each user. Why do we need an explicit prompt that ensures data security? What if choose a value in the prompt which i should not? Will i get data or not?

      Thanks,

      Sameer
