User ID in BO XI

Post Author: jpoff

CA Forum: Integrated Solutions

I have a request to find out if it's possible to retrieve the user's login ID into a BO XI report. The reason for this is that the user would like to have only one instance of a report and this report would pull only the current users records into the report. For example, if user ABC logs into BO XI and runs the report for all the assigned tasks, it would retrieve only ABC's tasks. If use XYZ runs the exact same report, it would pull in only XYZ's assigned tasks. The universe/data would contain the user ID that is assigned to the task. Is this type of thing possible to do in BO XI.

Thank you.

    i hope i got you right jpoff, you want to ristrict data based on the user who is running the report ,, thats so easy you can use @Variable('BOUSER') , this will return the username for the current connected user,, you can use this in ur joins or even in ur where conditions over dimenstion,,you can use it in joins like this way , double click ur join between to tables A,B ,, you may find thing like that

    A.ID = B.ID and A.COL = B.COL

    YOU CAN ADD THIS

    A.ID = B.ID AND A.COL = B.COL AND A.USER_NAME = @VARIABLE('BOUSER')

    hope this helps

    good luck
