Hi All,

We are working on requirement wherein we need to capture the event when some values has reached its threshold in the design studio dashboard and then send automatic emails to the users . Its little bit similar to the alerts for the servers in SAP BO. Is it possible to have such kind of configuration in SAP DS or any automation to be done ?

Currently, we have some codes in which we can call outlook(SMTP) but then manually we need to send emails to the users which according to certain scenarios is not useful.

Your suggestions would be highly appreciated .

Thanks,

Balvinder

Out of the box, I am not aware of such functionality. I recommend looking at the SAP Analytics Extension directory for solutions at https://analytics-extensions.enter.sap/ - partners have already developed ability to e-mail - see http://cdn.visualbi.com/wp-content/uploads/Visual-BI-Extensions-VBX-For-SAP-Businessobjects-Design-Studio-Brochure.pdf

Hi Balvinder,

I would suggest that Design Studio is not the appropriate tool for the use case you have described. Sending "automatic alerts" via email is a background monitoring task. Even if you could trigger emails from Design Studio, a Design Studio application cannot be scheduled or run as a background job. This means that in order to trigger such emails, a user would have to open the Design Studio application, at which point there would be no value in triggering alert emails because the user already sees the alert conditions on the dashboard.

If you can provide details of the type of events you are trying to capture, we could provide more suggestions. At this stage I'm inclined to think a product like SAP Event Stream Processor would be more appropriate for your requirement.

Regards,

Mustafa.
