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.

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

Hello,

 

We would like to monitor our sales by day of the week (from Monday to Sunday), the problem is that on Saturdays there are never sales but we sould still like Saturday to appear in the chart.

 

This old challenge was typically solved with the use of an auxiliiary masterfile or dummy rows, but we came across this wonderful formula that "fills up the wholes" and apparently does the job. Unfortunately this is only supported for day, quarter, month and year and the problem is that when trying to use it for Weekdays it does not aggregate or shows #MULTIVALUE

 

Our request is to enhance the TimeDim formula and make it operative for all sorts of time dimensions (namely for weeks / day of the week), or at least improve this functionality so days can be aggregated.

The benefit for this is to make WebI easier to use when building dashboard-like deliverables or demos.

 

Many thanks!

Best Regards,

Currently it isn't possible to group NULL Values into a specific custom group in WebI as they don't apear in the list of values.

 

The only workaround ist to put a variable into the grouping to replace NULL by something else.

The pain in this case is, that if you have an existing custom grouping in which you want to add "NULL" you would have to rebuild the whole grouping as the underlying object would change as you would have to use the new variable instead of the object from a query.

 

This feature was available in DeskI and I would expect it to work in WebI as well.

 

Thanks - Johannes

Hi,

 

As in many other tools it would be very usefull that the hyperlinks to another document can be clicked on from a datapoint in a chart, whether it is a line chart, bar chart or any other chart type.

 

This is already possible since ages in many other tools, but not in WEBI.  This is becoming a must.

 

Please add this basic funtionnality to WEBI.

When changing data sources in Web Intelligence documents, there is no way to retain the previous Context Selections even though they appear to be available when executing a GET /parameters call. This prevents the ability to automate changing data sources as users are forced to re-select Context Selections in order to change data sources.
 
The getParameters.PNG contains the GET /parameters response from the RESTful Web Service against a Webi document with Context Selections:
 
As displayed in the getParameters.PNG, the existing Context Selections are displayed (i.e.  Dim_Orders_Historical, Fact_Invoice_Historical, and Fact_Invoice_Historical) however when attempting to change the data source using the POST /dataproviders call, the following response displayed in postChangeDP.PNG appears (this is an excerpt).
  
There does not appear to be a way to assign the previously selected Context Selections from the GET /parameters call  (i.e. Dim_Orders_Historical, Fact_Invoice_Historical, an

It'd be nice to be able to set the width of each bar and the space between bars/groups in a chart. The parameters "Spacing within groups" and "Spacing between groups" which are available currently ARE NOT detail enough.

 

Another feature which needs to be included in this is, no matter how many bars are being shown in the Chart, the bar width should be the same. E.g. Assume that the bar width is 1 cm when there are 5 bars (one for each month), the width should be the same (1cm) in case if we get only data for 1 month due to filter or whatever. We should be able to choose between Auto and Dynamic.


Thanks,

Mahboob Mohammed

Creating a Crosstab.  In XI 3 you could use a click and drag method to create a crosstab (by dropping the dimension along to top or left side of the table.  In BI 4 the only option if the table is already in the report page is to use the toolbar or right-click, there is no longer a click and drag option. The request is to have the click and drag option be added back in.
