How to set the flexible layout for IPAD in mobile config properties file on server box BI4.0 SP02

Hi All,

I would like to see the behaviour of report viewing if it is in flexible layout. (ie., mobile designed category).

As per the documentation, it mentioned to configure the properties file of mobile inorder to create the new category "Mobile Designed".

But clear steps are missing.

I have tried to create new category with above name by modifying the mobile confg properties file on server.

Assigned the report to new category and i cannot download the report to the ipad.

I am pasting the content of my mobile properties file here and please share your thoughts on this.


# This is a configuration file for Mobi. This file should be carefully edited.

# Definition of 'Mobile-ready' documents for different request sources
# <requestSrc>.corporateCategory=cat1,cat2
# <requestSrc>.personalCategory=personalCat1,personalCat2
# Only documents that belong to the specified categories will be returned for a particular requestSrc.
# If the entries for a particular requestSrc is missing, then the values mentioned for "default" requestSrc will be used.
# Define the report format in which you need to get it from the server. Provide different options for page mode and
# output type for the data.
# Valid values for requestSrc are:
# default, iphone, ipad, bbphone, bbtablet, androidphone, androidtablet

default.corporateCategory=Mobile,DMFI,Mobile Designated

ipad.corporateCategory=Mobile,DMFI,Mobile Designated


#blackberry mobile

#blackberry Tablet


Thanks in advance,

    Hi Niranajan,

    i think you need to create a category called MobileDesigned in CMC

    this category is already listed in

    Any thing in the Mobile category will appear normal on the device

    While reports categorized in the MobileDesigned, should have a flexi outlook.

    for more information, go through the guides available at
