Enable Workbook Profiling in AFO

Hi All,

To record BW Query statistics, I know we need to have "Enable Profiling" checked in Settings in Analysis for office.

However, when the software is installed, it not checked by default and we have several business users who installed AFO, but didnt have this checked.

I would like to know if there is an option of having "Profiling" checked when AFO is installed by new business users.

Also, is there an option to rollout this update to existing users?

    Hi Lavanya,

    manual way is that:

    you modify setting "Profiling" for file Ao_app.config file which is under %programdata%\sap\cof like below and save the file. After modify You can give that file to users and replace it

    <!--default of 'Profiling': value="True" -->

    <Profiling value="True"/>

    But you want to be during installation, follow this

    Thanks & Regards,
