Information Broadcasting - scheduling BI reports

Hi
I have a requirement for information broadcasting for few reports generated on different infoproviders. The reports should be scheduled only on weekdays i.e., Monday to Friday and no users should have the authority either to view or modify the broadcasting setting except administrator.
I'm completety new to Information Broadcasting.Please suggest me on how to achieve this.
Thanks in Advance.

    Hi Dell,
    Make sure that no load (cubes related to this reports) is happening while information broadcast/ make sure that all the process chains loading the cubes related to this reports are scheduled in different timings to IB.
    Also Check this links:

  • Information Broadcasting and Web reporting

    Hi gurus
    1.I am trying to use Information Broadcasting in my system but when i open the query
    and try to select the publish Information boradcasting, its not taking me to the information broadcasting page on IE.
    what could be the reason, is my system not configured to use IB, if yes then can somebody give me the steps to config the information broadcasting on my system.
    2. How to check whether my system is configured for Web reporting or not and what all the config settings do i need to check and where do i need to check them.

  • Varible for Information Broadcasting Schedule (send Workbook with E-mail)

    FYI: I set a broadcasting schedule to send workbook with e-mail. The pre-calculated server was set already.
    My problem is that I want the value in selection-screen to be dynamic.
    e.g. I want the date (variable for 0CALDAY) to be filled with value of current date (the date on the day that the schedule is executed).
    When i set the broadcasting schedule, the wizard asks me to set the variable for selection screen. ("Variable Assignment"). I selected the variance that i prepared. (However, for that variance the date is fixed.) So, for everyday that the schedule is executed, the date value of the selection-screen is not the date that the broadcast schedule is execute; but it was the date on which i set the schedule.
    Is there any method to set a dynamic variable (something like a dynamic selection of ABAP report) ?
    or How can i solve this problem?
    Thank you very much for your inputs in advance.
    Rlyn

    Hi Rlyn,
    Have you thought of using standard SAP exit variable for restricting 0CALDAY in the query in the workbook on which the setting has been scheduled.
    The SAP exit would automatically determine the current date and query your dataset as per the current date and then broadcast.
    Other way to do this would be to create a variant ....as you have done and to change the value of the variant everyday using an ABAP program to change the value in the database tables (RSRVARIANT for 3.x and RSPARAMETERIZA)
    I would suggest you to try the former method(SAP exit variable).
    Hope it helps,
    Best regards,
    Sunmit.

  • Information Broadcasting for specific reports on1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th of month

    Hi
    I have a multiprover which contains 10 reports .
    Out of 10 reports, four reports have the broadcast settings .
    But i want to broadcast only two specific reports on 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th of each month by using the process chain automatically .
    So how can i broadcast those two reports automatically by using the process chain  on 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th of each month .
    Please let me know
    Regards
    Mubeen

    You can use RSRD_BROADCAST_FOR_TIMEPOINT or RSRD_BROADCAST_STARTER program for scheduling the broadcast settings.
    You can create variants for the broadcast settings using program RSRD_BROADCAST_STARTER and use ABAP type in process chain for progran and variant.
    create a event using SM64 tcode and use this event to schedule the process chain. You can create a small program to trigger this event as per your date requirement. You can use function module BP_EVENT_RAISE in the program for triggering the event.

  • Deleting Information Broadcasting Scheduled Jobs

    Does anyone know how to delete an Information Broadcasting setting after the associated workbook has been deleted? The IB job runs when the data provider is updated and just hangs because it can not find the workbook. In IB distribution you can view the scheduled settings, but it does not let you delete.
    Regards,
    Craig Stephen

  • Information broadcasting scheduling from web frontend

    hi all,
    i want to initiate the process of executing information broadcasting while clicking a button on my web frontend(BPS-web).
    i mean after clicking on a button on frontend ,the button is linked to some function module and that function module in turn executes broadcasting.
    can anyone suggest some solution.
    thanks,
    ajay

    The Web API allows you to call Broadcasting using a URL Web API Command:
    <SAP_BW_URL CMD='START_BROADCASTER ' SOURCE_OBJECT_TYPE=’DP’
    SOURCE_DATA_PROVIDER='DP1' START_WIZARD=’X’ DISTRIBUTION_TYPE=’MAIL’>
    You can call this using javascript and have a button that kicks off the broadcasting dialog.

  • Information Broadcasting - how to organize

    Hi,
    We have a requirement for information broadcasting for several reports from several countries. In this context we have to make the decision if we:
    a) schedule the reports/precalculation centrally by the BW Team or
    b) allow each end-user to schedule the precalculation
    As a) has the disadvantage, that for the BW team the scheduling of several reports could result in a lot of maintenance effort, we are thinking about to decentralize this activity and allow the end users to schedule the precalculation. But here we see the risk, that b) is somehow uncontrolled and could lead to performance issues if users from the whole world schedule the precalculation at the same time. A second point is the knowledge exchange.
    Can you tell us how you organized / customized information broadcasting in your company. How does the best practice look like. Thank you for your feedback!

    Hi
    In our company, a general BW account is created with relevant roles for each business, so key users from each business unit can create IBs using these general accounts.
    However, only we,  business analysts from group IT can schedule the IB which can maintain the control of IB.

  • Information Broadcasting in MS Excel Format to the users

    Hi All,
    I am trying to use information broadcasting and send reports in an MS Excel Format to the users.
    But could not find any options in SAP 3.5 to send Output in MSExcel  to the users..
    I read in the SAP Docs that we can send the Excel output in XML format and also WorkBooks...do we require any additional third party Softwares or uograde patches to achieve this?
    Please share your experiences on the Above in SAP 3.5.
    Thanks,
    Mike.

    In Bex under the Business Explorer / Tools, you should have a Distribute option to distribute workbooks.  This should open the web browser based Information Broadcasting inerface which allows you to send a wkbk immediately, or you can schedule the execution and distribution.
    I believe with 3.5 SP15 there is an option to distribute as a csv file.  I believe the Note has you add an entry to a table that adds csv as an output option, but I think the technical functionality actually exists before SP15.

    Hi,
    Usually we trigger an event in SM64 tcode..if u want to create an event u will go for SM62.
    In addition to time- and calendar-based job scheduling, the background processing system supports event-driven scheduling.
    Triggering an event notifies the background processing system that a particular condition has been met. The background processing system reacts by starting any jobs that were waiting for that event.
    Events are not saved. Once an event occurs and triggers any jobs that were waiting for that event, the event is discarded
    U can monitor process chain via Tcode 'CCMS'..
    Information broadcasting allows you to make objects with Business Intelligence content available to a wide spectrum of users, according to your own requirements.

  • Information Broadcasting: Monthly Reporting with variable dates

    Dear all,
    we have created a lot of reports with RD and have pubished the reports in the portal. Our reports have a lot of selection screens. Now we would like to use information broadcasting. We have already created information broadcasting settings. We have maintained fix variants for our reporting
    For example:
    Variant x1
    Organization: C110
    Scenario:       Actual
    Date:             is filled by the user Exit
    Now we tried to shedule the report. We are using Variant x1 to find the correct selection. The problem is, that we have already saved a fix date in the variant (for example 01.01.2008), because the field is obligatory.
    The User-Exit for the variables works with step 1, but the problem ist, that the variant x1 is overwriting our User-Exit value.
    How can I avoid, that the Variant is not overwriting the User-Exit. Of course for reporting without variant, the manual entry has priority before the user exit.
    Thanks for a soon feedback.

    hi,
    in order to update months, firstly create variants for the reports. Then implement the below program modifying the users inputs. For current month or last month you have to hard something like sy-datum(6), an you have to hard code the field name for the month variable that you use in query.
    Below program is for BI 7.0, you can also check the document. It also contains a method for bw 3.5 variants.
    You can schedule this program in a process chain or make variations of this as needed.
