In WebI 3.1, you were able to define overlap between series in a column chart.

In BI4.2, you can define spacing in the Plot Area, however, these values can not have negative values, so we can't get the same overlapping affect as in BOXI3.1

Data security profiles (access restrictions) are not supported for Universes which are built on top of OLAP cube. To implement so called row level security with OLAP universes, ability to define SSO (single-sign-on) connection to OLAP database which works from WebIntelligence is essential. As of now SSO OLAP connection works only with application Analysis for OLAP.

Working with hierarchies (direct access/OLAP to HANA Calc. Views in my scenario), I need to be able to fold/unfold parts of a hierarchy to a certain level in the hierarchy tree at runtime.

At this point (version 4.2 SP3 Patch 2) there seems to be no function/formula to make this happen.

 

Furthermore, I need to be able to define which nodes are displayed unfolded and which nodes are folded at design time, and this hierarchy representation should be preserved, when I refresh the Webi report.

Today, as of 4.2. SP3 Patch2 this does not seem possible neither : (

Environment:

HANA SPS12

BO4.2SP3

 

My customer has a calculation view, quite complex, with 2 prompts : date_from and date_to to define a period.

By default, these prompts are filled in HANA with current date (now()) to fit Business expectations.

On top of this HANA view, we have 3 Webi reports:

  • One for current date (date_from = date_to = today)

  • One for current month (date_from = 1st day of the month until now)

  • Current year (from Jan1st to 31/12/xxx)


 

They would like to be able to schedule these reports in the BO platform.

However, through this panel, it is impossible to overwrite the default value sent by HANA.

 

We would like to have a panel of expression, where we can use classic webi’s formula

Our only solution is to duplicate the complex HANA view by 3, and change the default values of the prompts. You can imagine that the maintenance will become quickly a nightmare.


What we have to do…

CL_REVENUE = CL_REVENUE_1 = CL_REVENUE_2 = CL_REVENUE_3!!! Only default values for the prompts are differ

In comparison to selection screens in ABAP reports, BEx Analyser, BO Analysis, etc. WebI prompt window has disadvantages making users unhappy:

1. Select-Options function (like we know it in ABAP) is not available.  

- The users have to insert many lines and spend lots of time when they need to restrict data by a couple of hundreds values (the values may be provided by another department in an Excel file). We know about "In List" option but it is not a simple task for many users to form a semicolon-separated string out of an Excel sheet column. We know about options with BEx data sources but this is not the case.

- The users do not have the ability to exclude certain values. So they are forced to enter many values again.

- The users cannot realize complex limitations without report change (for example filter data using a list of values, a list of intervals and a list of excluded values).

2. Global report variants (also like we know it in ABAP reports) are not available.

The users need an

Performance in exporting a Web Intelligence document to an external file is quite slow in BI 4.2. For example, when exporting a document which has 58,000 records of “eFashion” sample data to a text file, it takes approximately 69 seconds. In contrast, exporting the same document in BOE XI 3.1 is completed in 15 seconds. I observe the same issue in exporting to Excel format.

You may say that comparing these two versions is like “apples and oranges”, since BI 4.2 has a lot of new functions. But from the end-user’s perspective, simply it is a regression in BI 4.2. Therefore, performance improvement in exporting documents is needed.

The exact version which  I experienced this issue is 4.2 SP02 patch3, which has a fix for Note#2321158. 2321158 - Slow performance is experienced when exporting Web Intelligence documents to Excel format https://launchpad.support.sap.com/#/notes/2321158

Unfortunately, the performance of this version is still not good enough.

I can see more more people are migrating to tableau. On high level if I have to classify the reason, In memory power & Handling large volume of data and run time slice and dice.

 

If not in memory atleast if we can increase WEBI power to handle high volume of data that would be a good win. BO4.2 has parallel query concept guessing this will mean fast rendering of visualization(considering the db is fast enough as well).

 

Looking for:

 

1. Big size excel upload and report should be able to handle it without errors.

2. Report with huge data in general should respond fast and WEBI processing servers should not go to red state.

Actually it is only possible to set 1 corporate custom color palette, but we have several sub-companies and every with it's own corporate identity, so we would like to define more than one custom color palette. Please make this possible in a future update

In a webi report where two charts are defined, the second one linked to the first one. When a category is selected in the first chart the second one values change because they are linked.

 

Currently, when a corporate palette is defined for both charts, the first one follows the palette starting from the first color but the second one not allways starts from the first corporate palette color. One category selection starts in linked chart from first corporate palette color but following selection don't start from de begining, it continues with the following color.

 

We would like that there could be an alternative mechanism of assigning colors that started in linked charts allways from the first corporate palette color. We think this mechanism is more understandable.

 

It has been explained in the attached document.

Hello,

 

Charts in Web Intelligence report change color when Refresh on Open is enabled.

The color assignment changes each time it is opened in Web Intelligence.

The palette remains the same but the color assignment of the lines or slices is changed on each open.

=> SAP Note 2050761


Manual assignment or freezing colors is not possible as the chart must be shown dynamically in the predefined sort order of our CI colors. As the dataset changes every year this is also no possibility to recreate the charts.


Regards
