Filters in webi advanced use

841 Views Last edit Jan 01, 2017 at 09:16 PM 2 rev

Dear Sir or Madam,

Firstly, Happy new year to all of you, my best wishes.

I'm Using SAP BO IDT XI4.1 to build the Univers and Webi as a reporting tool.

According to my Data warhouse modelisation i have some mandatory filters that should be used to run the reports, in other word, it must be added to the filter section to use objects from specific univers folders.

Exemple: Filter 1,2,3,4 must be used to use objects from Folder A and B.

Filter 5,6 must be added to the above mentionned filters in order to use objects from folderC.

I know that i can force filters and configure them to becom mandatory and automatically selected in the report (hidden for users when developping his ah doc report).

My requiermenent is a bit different from the options that i knew.

Let's take the above example to expose my question:

I want the Filter 1,2,3,4 to be added to any new webi report (displayed in the filter section) giving the user the possibility to change a filter by the same dimension which will retrieve data from other query or be set with static values.

In addition to that, it could probably just a dream for the moment, if the user try to use an object from the folder c, a pop up should alert him that he must add the filter 5,6 in the filter section.

Thanks for your time.

I remain available for more details
