In SAP BI 4.1 with Web Intelligence Applet (Java) we have the opportunity to use Excel as a data provider, as in Rich Client. This is a great enhancement!

 

But it is not possible to deny this grant to users.

 

My idea is to extend the grant named "Desktop Interface - enable local data providers" also to Applet, to have the possibility to decide if a user can use Excel as a data source or not.

In the Business Objects 4.0 DHTML version of WEBI, when Exporting to Excel, especially in the case of large data sets which take a long time to render, the user has no idea whether the export process is actually being executed. 

A processing indicator, perhaps in the form of a status bar, should be displayed when report/query output is exported to Excel to inform the user that the export is in progress.

When you have many input controls you have to update them one by one for a diffent combination of filtered results on your report, each time you change the value of input control you have the wait for the updated results and then move to the next input control and do the same thing again an again, it would be very nice to have an option to update them at the same with a one click.

WebI BI4.

Create a report with two data providers Query 1 and Query 2, ensure they are both purged. Now run Query 1 only.

When the refresh completes a message is displayed stating 'No data to retrieve. Query 2'. I know this as I only ran Query 1.

Please can the behaviour be reverted to XI3.1 i.e no message is displayed

Current Functionality

Currently, you can only export the current active document. If several documents have been opened in the same client session, only the active can be exported.

Requested Functionality

We should have the possibility to export several or all opened documents at the same time. The list of documents should be shown in a select list, and the user should have the possibility to select the documents he wants to export.

Hello,

Something quite minor but might help with being consistent.

Today when we go to preference for web intelligence document modification.

We see the options

1. Web

2. Rich Internet Application

3. Desktop

Why not just call #3 Rich Client Application ?

That way its the same name as the Rich Client application that is installed on the desktop.

And will not have anything to do with the "Desktop" application that existed in earlier versions which is now discontinued.

Thanks,

Naresh

When 3 Tier mode is configured using Webi Intelligence the extranet file is configured with an individual "CMS Node" name from the cluster rather than the cluster name.

e.g. a_test_com@6400_j2ee.extranet if there are 4 servers a, b, c and d in cluster then the extranet file might be configured with any of this names.

Whereas, if 3 Tier is configured using Deski the extranet file is configured with the cluster name.

e.g. @boprod_test_com@6400_j2ee.extranet

With Deski Users would get @boprod, @botest, @bostage in system name post 3 Tier configuration but with Webi there might be combination from 12 servers in case where there are 4 servers in each cluster.

In BI 4.0 where there are multiple environments and multiple servers in each environment, it will be confusing for the users to use the system name in 3 Tier because everyone would not have the same name (CMS Node Name).

Since, Deski will be obsolete and SAP is working to have all the features of Deski in Webi this one should be consi

Desktop Intelligence supported all installed Windows fonts. However, Web Intelligence only supports a small handful of fonts. Can we get Webi to support all installed Windows fonts, including Wingdings and Webdings? These fonts are very useful, especially when doing exception reporting.

Hi,

XI R2 : In Business Objects XI R2 version, we were able to create new alerters when we open the report in "Edit" option.

XI 4.0 : In this release, we can create new alerters when the report is in "Modify" mode. And when we open the report by double clicking and change it to design mode, we dont have the option to create new alerters. I believe most of the users will be in view/design mode and will not have the capability to create new alerters. This totally defeats the purpose.

I hope i am not mistaken and SAP will try to incorporate these changes into the new releases.

Looking in SAP notes I found that Images in a Webintelligence/Infoview report that contain HTML code are not visible in PDF. Currently there is no functionality to view HTML code in PDF. SAP Notes says: Enhancement Request ADAPT01095036 has been created.. I dont know when will it be addressed and I need this functionality now.

I created a report with dynamic images. The only way to insert these dynamic images in a webi report is by using html code, but the problem is that images won't be shown when I export the report as PDF.

So I wish Webintelligence could address it some way either

1. By an special function to insert in a column or row an image from any directory in the BusinessObjects Server, and making the images being displayed even if the report is exported as PDF

or

2. Allowing the html tag for images being read by the PDF so images could be displayed in the PDF file

Please help me wih this, otherwise I'll have to creat the report using maybe crystal Reports? But I dont want that solu
