The role of Reporting agent once we have BEx Broadcaster

Hi all,
I understand the BEx broad caster does the pre calculation of Web template, distribution by various mechanisms...So in this context, how and when Reporting agents will be necessary ? Can any one give the differences between those two ??

D Bret

For some time both will be needed. It is true that some things Reporting Agent did, send a report, BEx Broadcaster does better. But certain Reporting Agent features have not migrated yet. Here's how to think about it: If you want to run a query and store the data in a table for later use, you still need Reporting Agent. This covers priming the OLAP cache, Web template precalculation, pre-run Exceptions, etc.
If you want to present these query results, the means have moved to BEx Broadcaster. That's emailing a workbook, emailing a query result or a link, publishing in the Portal.
(Not) Coincidentally, the first set of features are mostly or exclusively ABAP-based and the second set is based on NetWeaver Java WAS.
Hope this helps,
Doug Childs

    Would be problems with purchases, billing, and redemption option.  It's not 100% exact to your issue, but it will get you to the right department.
    Go here then select ITunes, then Store, then Purchases, Billing, and Redemption.  Then.. probably pick "My topic is not listed." 

  • TS3899 I have an iPhone 5 and it shows on the Mail Icon that I have over 3,000 emails to read but the number continues to increase even when I have read the email.  I thought  once you have read an email it drops off the count of "new emails"

    I have an iPhone 5 and it shows on the Mail Icon that I have over 3,000 emails to read but the number continues to increase even when I have read the email.  I thought  once you have read an email it drops off the count of "new emails"

    The received emails should show in two locations:
    1. In the All Inboxes tab of Mail.
    2. The Inbox for each mail account,
    If your emails are not showing in these locations try quitting the mail app and then reset your iPhone.
    Go to the Home screen and double click the Home button. That will reveal the row of recently used apps at the bottom of the screen. Tap and hold on the app in question until it wiggles and displays a minus sign. Tap the minus sign to actually quit the app. Then tap anywhere on the screen above that bottom row to return the screen to normal.
    To reset your device. Press and hold the Home and Sleep buttons simultaneously ignoring the red slider should one appear until the Apple logo appears. Let go of the buttons and let the device restart. See if that fixes your problem.

  • How can I hide the dimention in report if a user have no privilige to acces

    This is a "column level security" issue, it maybe a simple option but I didn't figure it out.
    Say I have two dimentions in a report, D1 and D2, and both user A and B can see this report. However, user B have no privilege to see D2, since in presentation level, I made this dimention not accessible to user B.
    In BIEE 10, I just need to modity NQSconfig.ini and make "PROJECT_INACCESSIBLE_COLUMN_AS_NULL = YES". In BIEE 11, this value is YES by default.
    Now the problem is, in 10, when user B visit this report, he can only see ONE column. But in 11g, he can see both D1 and D2 in the report, although values in D2 is empty. I wonder if there is an option to hide D2 in the report? This should be possible becausee 10 already did that.
    Thanks for your help.

    There was earlier a thread on column level secuirty in 11g. PFB the link. See if it helps.
    Column level security does not seem to work in OBIEE11g
    Also, in 10g for column level security we had used choose statement. Am not sure if same can be used in 11g. PFB link for getting information on choose statement.

  • IPhoto won't delete the photos from my iphone once I have imported them and indicated to delete the photos from my phone.  Am I doing something wrong?

    I have imported several hundred photos from my iPhoen 5C into iPhoto library.  I selected yes to delete them from my iPhone but the photos remain on the phone.  Am i doing something wrong.  I don't want to pay apple a fee to get this answered via their support system.  This should be straight forward, shouldn't it?  Thanks.

    Are you asking about iCloud Photo Library (Beta) as described in: iCloud Photo Library beta FAQ - Apple Support   ?
    In that case you will still see all photos on your iPhone, even after uploading the Photos to the iCloud Photo Library.  The photos on your iPhone may be light-weight optimized previews, if you have the setting
    Settings > iCloud > Photos or Settings > Photos & Camera > iCloud Photo Library > Optimize [device] Storage   enabled.
    But as long as you have enough free storage, will the your iPhone keep the full resolution versions of the photos you access most frequently.

    I have found with iTunes 11 that to move music over on my iPod it works very well and shows the 'on this iPod' button when you click on the device.
    With my iPhone however, you can click on iPhone but then there is no 'on this iPhone' button or the add button?
    Is it something to do with the settings on my phone?

    Some other posts seem to indicate that the cause is related to voice memos.  You may want to try the remedy described in this document

  • Need to automate the servers to report atleast once in day to WSUS

    Hello All,
    I have an enviroment with different domain and forests.
    My challenge here is whenever i see a server not responded for 30 or more days i need to login manually and fix the issues.
    we are not managing WSUS or servers through GPO for patching, instead we edit the registry to re-direct servers to our WSUS.
    I believe i can use PS tools, but it may not work due to different security polcies set on different servers.
    Any solution would be appreciated to automate the below commands.
    wuauclt /reportnow
    wuauclt /Detectnow
    stop and start windows update services.

    One way would be:
    psexec @Server_List_DEV.txt -n 30 wuauclt /detectnow
    psexec @Server_List_DEV.txt -n 30 wuauclt /reportnow
    However, psexec would need
    Admin$ and IPC$ enabled and accessable. Also, TCP 135 (DCOM), TCP 445 (SMB raw) and TCP 139 (SMB over NetBIOS) need to be open on your FW.
    For any remote administration, you will need appropriate access. If these requirements can be met, then I can suggest a PS script that will use psexec to get  the job done. Let us know and good luck.

  • OBIEE SSO enabling and role based reporting

    I had installed SOA10. and OBIEE10. already on my WINDOWS. I understand that I need to install 10.1.4 infrastructure to enable SSO in OBIEE, can you please tell me what is 10.1.4 infrastructure? is it equivelent to Oracle Identity Management Infrastructure and Oracle Identity Federation 10.1.4? I tried to download this from OTN since last night, but the page is always unaccessible. Where can I download 10.1.4 infrastructure except otn?
    I have another question regarding to the role based reporting with SSO. We want users to see different reports based on their roles once they login. What options do we have to implement this? From my understanding, we need to maintain a user role mapping table in our database, create groups in OBIEE and map the user role with the group in OBIEE? Is it true? Are there other options? Is there a existing product we can use to implement this?

    have a look on page 137 and further

  • Process Chain - Reporting Agent

    Does anybody know how to use Process Chain - Reporting Agent ?
    I have the web templates ready within a Scheduling package inside the Reporting Agent.
    Just want to know how I can use it with Process Chains.
    Kindly assist.

    Hi Ray,
    There is option of "Precalculation of web templates" in process chain where in you can specify the scheduling package and system will execute the package fill data for the web templates.
    Now in the role menu you need to call this web template with data_mode = stored . This setting will allow precalculated data to be reported to user . ( This data may not be current one ).
    Hope that helps.

  • Creation of report with the help of report painter

    Thanks in advance

    Hello Chinasammy,
    Report Painter allows you to create reports using data from SAP application components, which you can adapt to meet your individual requirements.
    Many of your reporting requirements can already be met by using the standard reports provided by various SAP application components. If these SAP standard reports do not meet your reporting needs, Report Painter enables you to define your specific reports quickly and easily.
    When executing a Report Painter report, it is displayed by the system in Report Writer format. You thus have access to the same functions as for Report Writer reports defined in the same way, and can combine Report Painter and Report Writer reports together in a report group.
    Report Painter uses a graphical report structure, which forms the basis for your report definition and displays the rows and columns as they appear in the final report output.
    To facilitate report definition, you can use many of the standard reporting objects provided by SAP (such as libraries, row/column models, and standard layouts) in your own specific reports. When you define a Report Painter report you can use groups (sets). You can also enter characteristic values directly.
    Advantages of Report Painter include:
    Flexible and simple report definition
    Report definition without using sets
    Direct layout control: The rows and columns are displayed in the report definition as they appear in the final report output, making test runs unnecessary.
    Below mentioned is the process for creating reports using Report Painter as a tool.
    Selecting and maintaining a library for your report: As the transfer structure to Report Painter you use a report table, which is defaulted by SAP and can not be maintained. This table contains characteristics, key figures and predefined columns. In a library, you collect the characteristics, key figures, and predefined columns from the report table, which you need for your Report Painter reports.
    When you define a Report Painter report, you assign it to a library. Reports assigned to one library can only use the characteristics, key figures, and predefined columns selected for that library.
    When you create or maintain a library, the Position field determines the sequence in which the characteristics, key figures or (predefined) key figures appear in the Report Painter selection lists when you define a report. This allows you to position the objects that you use regularly in your reports at the beginning of the selection lists. If you do not make an entry in the Position field, you will not be able to use this object in Report Painter reports.
    You can use either the standard SAP libraries for your reports or define your own.
    (ii) Selecting or maintaining a standard layout for your report: Standard layouts determine report layout features and the format of your report data.If the SAP standard layouts do not meet your reporting requirements, you can create a new  standard layout or change an existing one.
    (iii) Defining row and column models: A model is a one-dimensional, predefined reporting structure that you can insert in either the rows or columns of your report.If you often use the same or similar row or column definitions in your reports, it is recommended that you create row or column models.
    You must define the row and/or column models that you want to include in your report definition before you define the report.
    You can also use the standard column models supplied by SAP.
    (iv) Defining the report: Defining a Report Painter report involves the following steps.
    (a) Define the report columns: You define the report columns using the characteristics, key figures, and predefined columns selected for the library that the report uses. Alternatively, you can use a column model for column definition. Column models are predefined column structures which you insert into your entire column definition, instead of defining each individual column.
    (b) Define the report rows: You define the report rows using the characteristics selected for the library selected for the report.
    Alternatively, you can use a row model for your row definition. Row models serve the same purpose as column models, but are used to define a report row.
    Edit and format the report rows and columns in line with your requirements. (For example, you can hide rows or columns, define the column width or define colors for your report rows).
    (iii)Define general data selection criteria for the selection of your report data: Selection criteria are the characteristics used to select data for the entire report. You cannot enter characteristics as data selection criteria if they are already being used in the report rows or columns.
    (iv) Assigning the report to a report group: Once you have defined a report, you must assign it to a report group. A report group can contain one or more reports from the same library. However, reports that share the same data will select data more quickly and improve processing time.
    Hopw this helps you. Please let me know if you need anything more and assign points.
