Regarding upgrade of web report\web templates functionalites BW 3.5-BI 7.0

hi all,
         I m working on a Upgrade study from BW 3.5 to BI 7.0 for Web Templates,web items and java scripts.
Below is the scenario of the client system:
New web templates are created from the 6 master web templates available for publishing to a custom Portal (created using BSP and hosted on the WAS). TOOLBAR and FOOTER are custom web templates used in all Master Templates and contain various JavaScript functions and footer code respectively.
TOOLBAR provides the Toolbar, header and buttons functionalities in the Master Templates via the contained Javascript functions. FOOTER displays the date and time of issue as well the logged in user.
FOOTER1 and FOOTER2 are web items derived from FOOTER web template. They have different set of web item properties and are used to create web templates used through the custom Portal.
It is observed from BW Tables that out of 100 unique Web Templates available in the system, 90 are using TOOLBAR template and 95 are using FOOTER template.
No external Javascript .js files are used in the Web templates. Most of the Javascript functionality is contained in TOOLBAR and no other custom javascript in master templates. However, there are some derived web templates where custom javascript is contained.
Following is the process to create custom Web Templates in development server that are eventually transported to QA and Production:
1)     The appropriate master template is identified and saved with new name in developer role.
2)     Dataprovider is added to corresponding web items.
3)     From the library, properties are transferred from master template to the custom template.
4)     Report title is added in HTML tab.
5)     No changes are needed in the Web Templates Properties except change of value in  “Show Jump Target in” field to the portal Frame ConPortal or _self in case RRI is to be used.
6)     Some properties like Title, Width in Pixel, Affected Data Provider, etc. needs to be adjusted. Changes can be done to web items seen in Overview tab except the FOOTER and TOOLBAR web items. These web items are saved as reusable components in Library.
7)     After all the changes the web template created is transported from development server.
To summarize, all master data for creation of web templates like reusable master templates, web items in library, web templates containing Javascript code are stored in dev. server. Custom web templates created from these are transported.
I want to validate the sequence of migration as below:
Following sequence has to be followed for the Web Templates and Queries Migration in development BI 7.0 Server:
1)     Migrate the Individual BEx Queries first and perform functional testing.
2)     Migrate the TOOLBAR template manually (create as new in BI 7.0 Toolset) and FOOTER template automatically (using Migration Tool).
3)     Manually migrate the JavaScript code in TOOLBAR. Please refer to section ..for more details.
4)     Migrate the library of reusable web items, if any.
      (What to do if web item is custom or is not supported in BI 7.0)
5)     Migrate the Master Web Templates manually (create as new in BI 7.0 Toolset) and automatically (wherever possible) and perform functional testing.
6)     Migrate the custom web templates automatically (wherever possible) and manually, if automatic migration is not possible. Perform functional testing and data provider binding.
7)     Perform jump target binding wherever applicable.
8)     Transport custom templates, TOOLBAR and FOOTER to QA and Production subsequently.
Also i have the following questions:
1. How to migrate functionalities accessed thru web templates like jump queries, general navigation blocks with filter, table interface, and are data providers automatically linked to web items or have to be done manually post migration.
2. Do we need to migrate the library of reusable web items also.
3. After migrating the master  web templates and javascript containing templates to BI 7.0, can we migrate automatically the custom webtemplates derived from master templates and containing the custom javascript that is now avaialbe in BI 7.0, will they pick up the custom code automatically.
thanks in advance

  • SAP BW Web Report : Web Template

    I have created a SAP Query view and a web template.  Then i have created the web report using the below URL.
    Later i added filter condition sin the web template and created the URL which filter values for that particular Cost Center.
    I face issues with the below points.
    1.     Now the Title of the web report has to be changed.  Where can i change this ? ( HTML code / web template ) 
    2.     The Title of the report is selected from a Region Value from the .css file.  Is there any relation between this fiel and ABAP code at the backend.
    3.     The Cost center has hierarchy values at the back end.  Even if I do not enable the hierarchy for Cost center, I get values for that parent node.  But the child nodes show extra projects if hierarchy is enabled.  Should that be enabled ?
    4.     In the view I am getting both the fileds Cost centerA and Costcenter B.  But  in the report for filter COSTCENTERA=7046, I get only COSTCENTERB and vise-versa.  What could be the reason ? What should I do to get both the fileds in the Web report.
    Appreciating your valuable suggestions on the above points.
    Please help me in resolving these issues. 
    Many thanks

  • Web Reports and Port

    When we execute a BW web report or template, they run on port:8100 or port:8000.
    Do anyone know how to make them run on port:80 instead?
    Best Regards,

    You have two options, change the ICM HTTP service port using the profile parameter icm/server_port_0.....
    or if you are using load balancing via a web dispatcher or hardware loadbalancer, then you can set the port by creating an entry in the HTTPURLLOC table in BW to that all the templates are generated with this port...

    I am working on SAP BO 4.1. I have made several dashboards on top of web services ie;Web Service Method. I have 2 systems in BO ie; Development and Production Systems.The BW production system is connected to BO Development and Production both.
    The Webi reports are made on top of BI BEx Query. From the webi reports, BI Web Services are made on top of which the dashboards are made further.
    The Webi Reports, Web Services and the Dashboards everything is made directly in BO Production.
    My question is, Can I transport the Webi Reports and the Web Services from BO Production to BO Development?
    And If yes, will it have any other impact on webi reports, web services or dashboards?
    Thanks & Regards,

  • Webi report on mobile

    Hi all,
    when i view my webi report on mobile, the report comes with number of pages as the number of elements in my report, i am able to see only one chart in one page and for the next chart i have to go to different page. Is there any possibility that i may view more than one report element in one page. Also i am not able to see report background images on mobile.
    I have inserted an image as background in my webi report (web intelligence rich client) and on that image i have a pie chart and a column chart.
    so now i want to see the background image with the two chart on it in my mobile in a single page.

    Create an additional category called MobileDesigned assign your document to both categories Mobile and MobileDesigned. After this Web Intelligence will not automatically re-arrange your tables and charts. If it is still creating a next page, then your table and chart is oversized for an iPad, scale down.
    Please check the free mobile tutorials at:

  • Adaptive Processing Server vs WEBI reporting server

    I'm planning for production configuration, I want to know when I perform following actions, which server is used? webi or Adaptiive Processing...
    1. User refreshes a webi report    (webi?)
    2. Schedule a webi report (webi and Adaptive Processing? )
    I will clone existing webi reporting servers, should I clone Adaptive processing servers also? AP has so many services running in it, I really don't need all of them. I just want to know which services are critical to report refreshing and scheduling.  If a schedule a large report (5 million rows for instance); which server should I beef up? webi ? or AP? If I add one more AP server, will BO knows how to take advantage of it?

    Is the Adaptive Processing server used for Scheduling Webi reports?
    I have Webi Processing services on production which are identical.
    there are Adaptive Preocessing services which has different set of services.
    1) AdaptiveProcessingServer1
    Trace log service
    audit service
    visualization service
    Web Intelligence Tracking Service
    Web Intelligence Monitoring Service
    2) AdaptiveProcessingServer2
    Custom Data Access Service
    Document Recovery Service
    Excel Data Access Service
    monitoring service
    Rebean service
    Trace log service
    Web Intelligence monitoring service
    audit service
    3) AdaptiveProcessingServer3
    Trace log service
    audit service
    DSL Bridge service
    security token service
    Web Intelligence Tracking Service
    Web Intelligence Monitoring Service
    My reports are failing sometimes with error: Exception raised:
    When i check for the SAP Note 1679045, however there solution refers only to the Webi Processing servers and not APS.
    So not sure if it is applicable to APS as well.

  • CSS and Template availability in WebI Report

    Hi All,
    Does WebI provides facility to import CSS Stylesheet for using those settings in report?
    Can we create Templates in WebI?
    Our requirement is to decrease the manual task by using single CSS Stylesheet and Templates for creating multiple/many Reports.

    yes, it is possible in BOEXI:
    You just have to edit the related defaultConfig.xml file on the BO Server:
    Windows based BO installation:
    <BO folder\Tomcat55\webapps\AnalyticalReporting\webiApplet\AppletConfig\defaultConfig.xml
    Unix based BO installation:
    Can we create Templates in WebI?
    In XI R2 there is no support for Webi templates as there is with Deski. We worked around this by creating a Webi report with all of the standard components, header, footer, etc. and saved that to a templates folder. The report was marked read-only so no one could change it and any new reports were created by copying the template report.

  • Parameter REPORT for the Report Web item in the Web template is empty or mi

    I tried to create a Web-Template (WAD). By executing the report, I get the selection screnn, but by confirming the selection I get the following message:
    Web Item Report Error
    Web template error in specifications for the Web item report

    Use the BEx Web Application Designer to add parameter REPORT to the report Web item in the Web template, and assign a report name to the parameter
    Contact your system administrator. This error was recorded

    As DP_1 Type Query_view_Data_provider, I have assinged a Query Designer Query wich works fine, if I execute it as QDR.
    The entry Query_view_Data_provider makes sense for me, but what do I need to maintain for the type "Filter"?

  • Print button on Web report.

    Hi gurus,
    We were trying to add a print button on Web report for printing the result area on the Web report.
    We followed the steps which has given in the How-to-guide How To Web Printing with Microsoft
    Excel document.
    In the document it has mentioned that
    1. Support package should be above 19 for BW 3.5 version
    2. Add HTML code in the WAD Template
    3. Import Transport file into the System.
    4. Apply OSS notes 736568 and 737082 to BW
    We upgraded the support package to 22, added the html code in the WAD template, imported the transport file into the BW system and applied the OSS notes as per the mentioned in the document.
    The transport file contains the Package u201CZPK_WEB_PRINTING_WITH_EXCELu201D and ABAP Classes u201CZCL_RSR_XLS_GRIDu201D,
    After import the transport file into BW, some of the objects in the ABAP Classes were not activated. I was trying to activate manually but those were not activating.
    Please guide me how to resolve the above issue or is there any way to get the printing the web report?
    Thanks in advance.

    If you want to print the web page directly then you can define a button using Java script and you can do it.
    Define java script code to print the page
    for ex define a button and call function for print.
    i cannot attach the code. but you can solve with java script
