Crystal Report in NetWeaver portal via option "Based on BW Report"

Hello,

I have searched the forums and read the blog by Ingo but haven't found a solution, that's why I post this new thread.

We currenctly have the following situation:

We are creating Crystal Reports which are stored on the BW server to have the benefit of being able to transport them from DEV to QA to PROD. The Crystal Reports publisher is in place and works perfectly in all three environments, so we are able to open our Crystal reports via the InfoView Portal, no issues here (we have 3 folders for the 3 systems on 1 BO server).

In our NetWeaver portal, we have the integration kit iview available, and we are able to open our Crystal reports via the option 'Standard BusinessObjects Enterprise Report' by using the ID for the Crystal that we find in the InfoView portal.

However, to benefit from transporting also our portal from DEV to QA to PROD, we would like to use the option 'Based on BW Report' to be able to use the technical id which is used in BW and is the same across the 3 systems (unlike, the Crystal ID on the BO server).

I have tried numerous combinations of parameters in the iView, but keep getting "error 404" when previewing the report based on the BW report id.

Could someone indicate if they have had managed to use this option, and if yes what parameters I should use in the iView?

(system = ? (BW or BO?) / application paramaters: (cms_name = <BO_SERVER> ?)

Thanks a lot!

Tom

    >> System is the system that you defined. this is the SAP System that you defined in the portal and then you need to enter the properties for the Crystal Enterprise Server for the SAP system as well.

    >> CMS Name is the full qualified host name and port for the CMS server of your BOE System.
