Merging Webi Reports to one PDF

Hi experts,

We want to merge the PDF result of several Webi reports into one PDF file. As the BI Platform is not able to do this we're looking for a way to achieve this e.g. using OS commands and integrated or additional software.

One of our main questions is which software can easily merge PDF files in our case?

  1. Can we use the Adobe Document Service (ADS), integrated in the Java Stack of a SAP Enterprise Portal, for PDF merge operations?
  2. What do you think about additional software like PDF Box? Maybe it is possible to deploy this to the Tomcat running the BI Platform.
  3. Our BI Platform is currently running on AIX. Do you know integrated OS commands, that merge PDF files?

I would be pleased about your feedback!

    Hi Timo,

    There is nothing in the BusinessObject Enterprise APIs that would achieve merging of Webi documents to a single PDF. You would have to schedule or export each document to PDF and then use a third party API to do the merge. I don't have any recommendations ast to which additional software would be best for this.
