Hi SK,
You can run a report from catalog manager that willl give you all answers requests and the subject area columns in use, you can map these back to the sales tables either manually or by linking (vlookup) to an RPD report that you can run from the Admin tool.
The Usage Tracking method is pretty good but you will have to match up the reports using the Logical SQL.
I'd do both methods and cross ref your results to ensure nothing slips the net.

  • How to find the list of Queries/Reports which are using Exceptional Aggregation in SAP BI?

    Hi All,
    We are interested to know how to find the list of Queries/ Reports which are using Exceptional aggregation in SAP BI.
    Please let us know is there any table's to check the list of reports using Exceptional Aggregation in SAP BI.

    Here you go..
    1) Go to table RSZCALC and get list of ELTUID where AGGREXC is not INITIAL and AGGRCHA is not initial; now you get only exception aggregation set based on some chars. Also you can further add STEPNR = 1 since your intention is just to get query name , not the calculation details; this will reduce number of entries to lookup and save DB time for next steps.
    Here you will get list of exception aggregation UUID numbers from which you can get properties from RSZELTDIR.
    2) Pass list of RSZCALC-ELTUID to table RSZELTXREF - TELTUID and get list of RSZELTXREF -SELTUID - this table stores query to it's elements maping kind.
    3) Now again pass RSZELTXREF - SELTUID into same table but into different field RSZELTZREF - TELTUID and get RSZELTXREF - SELTUID
    This step you get query reference sheet or column or query general UUID for next step.
    4) Pass list of RSZELTXREF - SELTUID into RSZELTDIR - ELTUID with DEFTP as 'REP'. Now you get list of query names in RSZELTDIR - MAPNAME and description in TXTLG.
    Note: you can also get the reference chars used for exception aggregation from RSZCALC - AGGRCHA field.
    Hope this helps.
    Please keep in mind, it might take more time depends on how many query elements you have in the system...

  • How to identify reports that are using a specific universe object?

    Any idea how to use BO Auditor or Metadata Manager to identify webi reports that are using a specific universe object or universe prompt in the report SQL?

    Hi Samuel,
    In case you are using BOXIR2 you can do this by editing the crystalenterprise.webi.xml file.
    Replace the CrystalEnterprise.Webi.xml file (Take a backup) with the edited one.                                                                               
    Path where you can find this file- Tomcat/webapps/businessobjects/enterprise115/desktoplaunch/WEB-INF/classes/META-INF/CrystalEnterprise.Webapps/ePortfolio/plugins                                                                               
    Paste the Custom Documentation folder in Tomcat\webapps\businessobjects\enterprise115\desktoplaunch\ 
    May I know your email Id so that I can send you the edited crystalenterprise.webi.xml file.

  • How to identify the SQLs which are using the tables and new columns

    I m using oracle 10G Database in windows. Developers have added some columns in some of the database tables and were asking to check whether there is some impact on performance or not. I have not done this performance tuning before. Kindly help me how to proceed further.
    How to obtain the sqls which are touching the tables and the new columns? It would be really great if you can help me with this.

    You can try to use DBA_DEPENDENCIES to get PL/SQL objects using tables:
    However if SQL code is not stored in database in a trigger, a procedure, a function, a package or a view, it is impossible to retrieve all SQL code referencing some table from database dictionary: for this you would have to analyze application source code.

  • How to find aggregates which are not used.

  • How to find reporting services are installed in which mode

    Hi All,
    I'm currently working on migrating SQL server from one datacenter to other. The source environment has reporting services installed and as per the info given by the client they are using reportingservices with sharepoint integrated mode.
    When I checked the SQL server reporting server configuration manager, i donot see any databases within the databases option.
    From SSMS I can see two databases with names reportserver$DEN2010 and reportserver$DEN2010tempdb, the sql server instance name is DEN2010. What i want to know is these databases are created by using which of the below options ?
     1. Install the sharepoint mode integrated mode default configuration.
    Will the databases with instance names created by default when you select the above option ?
    2. Install but donot configure the report server option.
    Thanks in Advance,
    Regards, Kranthi
    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Kranthi_06,
    According to your description, you have an environment with reporting services installed, the info given by the client they are using reportingservices with sharepoint integrated mode. In SSMS, you can see two databases with names reportserver$DEN2010 and
    In Native Mode, in the SQL Server Installation Wizard, if we select Install and configure option, the ReportServer database will be created automatically through Setup. If we choose the Install only option, we must use the Reporting Services Configuration
    Manager to create the database manually. By default, the database format is ReportServer and ReportServerTempDB. In SharePoint Mode, we need to create at least one Reporting Services service application by using SharePoint Central Administration or Reporting
    Services PowerShell cmdlets, then three databases are created for each Reporting Services service application and the database names by default include a guid that represents the service application. The following are example names of the three SharePoint
    mode databases:
    For SSRS 2008 R2 or early versions, we can identify report server mode using the Reporting Services Configuration Manager. For SSRS 2012 or later versions, Reporting Services Configuration Manager no longer supports Reporting Services SharePoint mode. Configuration
    of SharePoint mode is completed using SharePoint Central Administration.
    Verifying SharePoint integrated mode installation
    Create a Report Server Database
    If you have any more questions, please feel free to ask.

  • How to find out which application uses how many Web containers?

    Hi everybody,
    we are monitoring several JAVA engines via sapccmsr and often get a threshold overflow for SID\Server\...\Web Container\AllRequestsCount
    The SAP online documentation tells me how to set a threshold for any web application. But befor that I should know, which application uses up all the Web Containers. How can I find out?
    btw: Does the Threshold (1.000.000) make any sense, or is this just a number that may be changed without the fear for any consequences? Is there a serious performance impact?
    Thank you in advance

    I have an opinion, that you can take a trace messages from Web Container service, which might give you some more details.
    I am not completely sure if that serves your purpose. Still you can have a look in the below document, if it looks helpful.

  • Query Builder - Find WEBI reports that are using a table

    I am trying to find list of WEBI reports using a specific table. This specific table is used in only 1 universe.
    Though I could successfully find list of reports that use this universe, I am unable to find drill down further and find the subset of reports using this table/object.
    Is it possible to find the information I am looking for using query builder.
    Also, for a given WEBI report I am trying to find the list of report names and the folder they reside in:
    PARENTS("SI_NAME='Folder Hierarchy'",
    "PARENTS('SI_NAME=''WEBI-UNIVERSE'' ', 'SI_NAME=''MyUniverse'' ')" )
    The above query just gives me the folder names. I am looking to find the report names as well the the folder (and preferably the path) in a single query. Is that possible.

    With respect to your 1st requirement:
    In BusinessObjects 6.5 it was possible. However, post BOXIR2 this information could not be retrieved from CMS via query builder.  I agree with Jorge Sosua's comment above.
    With respect to your 2nd requirement:
    The field 'SI_PATH' will retrieve Filestore path(physical path). If you were referring logical path(Public folder path or psuedo-reference path) will you please refer my respone to Kelly Stone at BusinessObjects Query builder queries - Part II , If this may assist you.

  • How to find topics which are not assigned to a map ID

    Perhaps I am missing something very obvious in the Edit Map IDs window, but I can't find a way to easily identify topics which have not been given a Map ID.
    Initially, I selected all topics and used the auto map option for the project map file, but I am constantly adding topics and don't always remember to go straight in and assign an ID at the time of creation.
    Can somebody point me in the right direction?

    Hi Chloe. You can't get that from the mapids dialog but you can by running the Topic Properties report with the mapid option turned on.

  • How to find ex-or area, using exclusiveOr()  of Area class for Star shape

    In my application I came across 1 issue where my mouse cursor should changed to 'moveCursor', when it passes over a Star shape (this is hallow shape), drawn on a panel using Graphics2D object. I am drawing the star by using 10 points and using Stroke class the width of the star is increased to 30. So finally my output of the application is a start shape(with width of 30).
    Now when i am trying to pass my mouse cursor over this shape, mouse cursor is not changing. i.e, mouse cursor is not identifying the star shape. I want my mouse cursor should change only when it passes over the shape not inside of the shape.
    Please guide me correctly to overcome this problem.

    OK, let me see if I understand this correctly...
    You only want the cursor to change when you pass over the line or your shape, not when you are in the interior of your shape, not when you are any place else; just when you pass over the line only.
    You could do a normal mouseEntered for the panel and then check the position of the cursor and see what color is under it and if if corresponds to your star, then change the cursor.

    How to find report values using report writer
    Edited by: Alvaro Tejada Galindo on Feb 6, 2008 12:01 PM

    Thanks all for the reply.
    I am trying to solve a problem where report parameter value that is set at Management Console is wiped out after calling replaceConnection.
    databaseController.replaceConnection(oldConnectionInfo, newConnectionInfo,
    We have to support changing database connection from a java utility
    class. But once replaceConnection is called all existing static parameter values are lost. To fix this issue we thought of getting parameters and values before calling replaceConnection and setting it after replaceConnection.
    Version is CS2008 SP3 - version
    If there is any other option of fixing the original wipe out issue?
    ParameterValues.getValues() didn't return value. I will try ParameterValues.getCurrentCalues() but the document says ParameterValues.getValues() is  equivalent to the IParameterField.getCurrentValues() method  unless it is empty, in which case it is equivalent  to the IParameterField.getDefaultValues() method.
    So getCurrentValues() may not work.

    I really like Kirby's suggestion with the IPTC rule Keyword is. This is very useful for smart albums global to the library.
    Frequently a different approach helps for my smart albums. Many of my smart albums are local to projects or folders.  In this case the smart HUD will only show those keywords that have been used for the images in the selection. So if I only have tagged the images with the keywords "birds" and "slideshow", the smart settings HUD will only show these two keywords and the list is very short.
    My Keywords HUD, is organized hierarchically; this way I can collapse large sections at once, and it is easier to focus on the keywords needed for a specific task.
    I use the search field in HUD a lot, to filter the set of keywords shown.
