One aspect that is often misunderstood is the different bursting modes that publication offer as part of the Advanced settings. Each bursting mode has its advantages and disadvantages. Here is an overview of the three bursting modes that are available. 1. One database fetch for all recipients (single pass) Fetches the data once for each report. This report bursting method uses the data source logon credentials of the publisher to refresh data. It is recommended if you want to minimize the database hits. However depending on your report it may retrieve too much data from the database at once. It is most secure if output format is a static one such as PDF. Otherwise the recipient may be able to modify the document and data associated with other recipients. (CR document would not allow this kind of modifications) 2. One database fetch for each batch of recipients (Multi-pass) This bursting mode is designed for high-volume scenarios. Here the publication is refreshed, personalized, and delivered to recipients in batches and it will hit the database once per batch. This report bursting method uses the data source logon credentials of the publisher to refresh data. WebI publications do NOT support this bursting mode. 3. One database fetch per recipient (Multi-pass, per recipient bursting) As the name indicates, this bursting mode hits the database for each of the recipients. It uses the data source logon credentials of the recipient to refresh data, if BOE recipients are used and is recommended for reports with metadata and data layer security. Use it when you want to maximize security for delivered publications. However, if all recipients have the same security settings, you will hit the database for each recipient asking for the same data, which may be a performance concern. Please note that Webi publication with dynamic recipient only supports “One database fetch for all recipients” bursting mode. CR supports all bursting modes for dynamic recipients. When choosing the busting mode keep your personalization scenario in mind. For example if all recipients are getting the same data (minimal personalization) then use one fetch for all recipients, however if you have a personalized data for each recipient then One database fetch per recipient may be your best option. Also keep in mind that the more personalization you have, the more artifacts (personalized reports) are created on the system. You may want to ensure that these are cleaned up at some point either by instance clean up or if you’re distributing to external destination then you could deselect the “Default destination” which cleans up the publication artifacts on the BOE system. If you’re running “One database fetch per recipient” and you have many recipients then ensure that you have sufficient CR or WebI scheduling resources as publication spins of a CR/WebI scheduling job for each recipient. 2355 View s 5 Comments Tags: business_intelligence_(businessobjects), bursting, publications Understanding Publication bursting modes Posted by Christina Obry May 23, 2013 You can see below the four authentication modes possible in the version of SAP BusinessObjects BI 4.0 SP6 : New methods of authentication available in the CMC of SAP BO BI 4.1 Posted by MAURIN Pierre-Louis May 22, 2013
  • 2. 6/3/2014 BI Platform | SCN http://scn.sap.com/community/bi-platform/blog?start=135 2/19 In SAP BusinessObjects BI 4.1, we can see that the plateform supports single sign-on and reporting from further ERP systems in the CMC : The integration of the four following types of authentication are now integrated into the platform : Oracle EBS JD Edwards EnterpriseOne PeopleSoft Enterprise Siebel You can map existing roles into BI platform accounts. After you map roles, users are able to log on to BI platform applications with their ERP credentials. This eliminates the need to recreate individual user and group accounts within BI platform. 1354 View s 4 Comments Tags: businessobjects, bi, sap, bi4, sso, erp, bw , bobj, bi4_upgrade, authentication, business_intelligence, cmc, bi4.1, bi41, single_sing_on This is a continuation of my blog BusinessObjects Monitoring and Housekeeping activities ( http://scn.sap.com/community/bi-platform/blog/2012/10/22/businessobjects-monitoring-and-housekeeping- activities ). Just wanted to brief what is exactly needs to be done as part of daily monitoring in high level. This will be the basis template to be used for monitoring Category Activity Action Availability Check for System (BO Servers) Status Check all the BusinessObjects Servers are Active and running. Use CMC to view the server status. Check for CMS Database Status Check whether the CMS Repository database is up and running.

Posted by Merlijn Ekkel May 17, 2013 We're still in the middle of the ASUG hands-on pre-conference session today before SAPPHIRENOW/ASUG Annual Conference begins officially tomorrow. Several pre-conference sessions are going on today, below is a brief summary of BI4.1 Photo by SAP's Atul Patel The BI4.1 hands-on workshop was lead by SAP Mentor Ingo Hilgefort who provided an overview of data connectivity. He explained that SAP's newly-named SAP Lumira does not support native BW connections. The new name for Crystal Reports 2011 in BI4.1 is Crystal Reports 2013. Here is another picture of a BI4.1 enhancement for Crystal for Enterprise ASUG Hands-on Pre-Conference Session BI4.1 & More - Part 1 Posted by Tammy Powlas May 13, 2013
  • 4. 6/3/2014 BI Platform | SCN http://scn.sap.com/community/bi-platform/blog?start=135 4/19 The above shows that the variable screen is displayed before the query panel when using Crystal Reports for Enterprise against BW. The above shows you can use Crystal Reports for free when using it against ERP/ECC (you must be on enhancement package 5 or higher). Then the exercises started. Some Question & Answer: Q: Design Studio - how do I download? A: Two separate downloads - server add-on and client You have to check licenses - if you are licensed for Dashboards/XCelsius you should be able to access Design Studio Also check service.sap.com/licensekeys Q: Where can I use Analysis Views? A: On the BI Platform Q: Can I install Explorer on BW on Hana? A: There is a list of approved hardware to install this
  • 5. 6/3/2014 BI Platform | SCN http://scn.sap.com/community/bi-platform/blog?start=135 5/19 Q: Can I connect Analysis Office to ECC? A: Yes, using transient providers (enhancement pack 5) Q: Without Hana, can I use Explorer against a BEx Query? A: You can build a universe with Explorer Some of the other exercises included creating BW Workspaces, importing BW Cube into Hana and then used BI4.1 Explorer against that model in Hana The day is not over yet 639 View s 6 Comments Tags: sapmentors, sapmentor, sapphirenow , ingo_hilgefort, sap_hana, asug2013, bi41 Nadine Engler, SAP, presented this webcast to ASUG and other user groups last week on the Customer Connection for BI Platform.

User groups propose the focus topics. It is a customer-driven program. Focus run in a project approach with a clear start and finish date. Figure 3: Source: SAP Nadine explained that customer connect projects have a fast cycle time with a dedicated scope It takes 2-3 months for the collect phase Improvement requests are prioritized by subscription, which means you intend to use it in production SAP will only consider improvement requests with 5 or more subscriptions

Figure 4 shows what is in scope and out of scope. SAP plan to deliver customer connect improvements for BI4.0 and BI4.1 Figure 5: Source: SAP Figure 5 shows some samples improvements already in the queue for BI platform. Submitted improvement requests are shown above to help get you inspired and start subscribing to them, if you are interested. Nadine said the USF User group already submitted 20+ improvement requests.
  • 8. 6/3/2014 BI Platform | SCN http://scn.sap.com/community/bi-platform/blog?start=135 8/19 Figure 6: Source: SAP Figure 6 shows a high-level project plan. The define phase ended with focus group USF, who proposed the customer connect. Kick off was conducted on 5/7 to start the collect phase. Customer’s task is to submit and subscribe to improvement requests SAP will ask for clarification on improvement requests. Collect phase will be open for 2 months. 7/19 is planned for final call. SAP will list of improvement requests and ones with more than 5 subscribers. After the final call you have 1 week to enter ideas and subscribe before the workspace is closed After 7/26 no more improvement requests submitted and then the select phase begins and SAP looks at qualified requests – those with more than 5 subscribers. SAP will review ones which are feasible – important that they can be easily adopted and no side effects. At the end they have a select call and SAP relays which improvements will have been accepted (October). SAP will have 3-6 months of development – SAP needs customer help in providing feedback in development and testing – will contact the improvement owner and subscribers. SAP will ask you test and validate improvements. In Q1 2014 SAP will have a delivery call for when improvements are available. See this blog for details on how to get started with the customer connection program, starting at Figure 6 of that blog. Question & Answer: Q: Do you consider ramp-up customers or is it a different case? A: some restrictions with ramp-up but it is a different program Q: Hello, what is the ''scope'' of the acceptable improvement requests? Can it cover Webi improvements? A: This is not the case; this is the administrative part of the BI platform Q: Is this for new release? A: No improvements will be delivered with BI 4.0 and BI 4.1 in Q1.2014 Q: What about the existing enhancement requests which are in the roadmap for 4.0 sp6/7 and beyond? A: Go ahead and submit improvement request Keep in mind SAP has only so many resources just like your company. Please ask for things that are important to you. Q: How long does registration process take? A: 1 to 2 working days after you complete registration Special thanks to Nadine Engler for bringing this to ASUG, Kevin Geiger , ASUG BI volunteer, for moderating, Derek Wang and Saroj Parmar of SAP.

Here I am posting a demo of a simple Android app that I quickly developed to illustrate the simple but powerful potential that is given by the marriage of mobile app development and the recent increasing maturity of SAP BI RESTful SDKs. In less than 500 lines of code (also think half of them were automatically generated by Eclipse/Android SDK), this simple Andriod app has only a login screen and a listview screen to allow mobile access to BOE servers, navigate infoobject tree, and schedule reports. The code is far from any error-free, reliable, secure or state of the art designs but simply a piece of fast food with all the possibilities to evolve into a delicious meal.

I took a snapshot of this. As you can see the description section does not give the description and the new behaviour section...well seems to give the description of the problem. I think SAP should rectify this to avoid any confusion in the future. Release notes 4.0 not displaying the text properly Posted by Garyl Lin Wen Ying May 2, 2013
