    Web Intelligence Rich Client is just a standalone version of the Web Intelligence Java Report Panel that lets you work with Web Intelligence documents without connecting to the Central Management Server (CMS).Web Rich client can be use in offline mode, you can also connect to CMS and work with Web Intelligence documents.

    But in the web intelligence report by infoview every time it connect to the CMS.

    you can also create reports based on personal data providers such as text or excel files using Web Intelligence Rich Client.

    Other side universe is only source of webi.

    Thanks,

    Amit

    Hi,

    Adding to the answer above,

    From version XIR3.1 SP2 onwards, we have the new functionality of Input Controls, which works similar to prompts where you can either selcet one or more values and see the data in the report accordingly. But this is done at the report level, not at the query level. So, if you want to set up Input Controls, you should use Rich Client

    I havent tried setting up Input Controls through thin client. My guess is, we cannot set up Input Controls through thin client.

    Any inputs on this are welcome!

    Thanks, Hope it helps !!!!
