CMS Reports Index

We would like to create an index page/report that shows all the reports in CMS, the folder they are located in, and a description of the report. We would like to incorporate links in the index page, so the user could simply find the report they need and click on it to take them to it. Or even better it would execute the report when clicked. Has anyone created such an index or have any ideas how to accomplish this? One would think that this would be available in infoview.

    Hello Brent,

    You can't create an automatic report which would take automatically all the reports in the CMS and would display some fields.

    Because it would mean to create an universe on the CMS db and it's not possible becauseit contains binary objects.

    To query the CMS db, you have to use the query builder. Like that, you can get the list of reports that exist in the CMS. So, you could create an excel report with that output, but it would be a static report.

    But, I am not sure why you need a report containing all the reports with their description as it's the role of the folders of infoview. If you don't want to touch your folders to reorganize them, you still have the possibility to use the categories.

    I hope this will help you

      I figured it out. Using the link below, I can create an index/master report that will take the user to the respective report.

      http://<server>:8080/businessobjects/enterprise115/desktoplaunch/opendoc/openDocument.jsp?sPath=[Parent Folder],[Sub Folder]&sDocName=<Report Name>&sType=rpt&sRefresh=Y

      Thanks for all your help. It is greatly appreciated.
