New Variant Feature in Web Intelligence

SAP released SAP Business Objects Business Intelligence 4.1 Support Pack 6  and It has some cool new features. I have outlined the new variant feature for webi below.. The variant feature allows users to save frequently used prompts on a web intelligence report as variants.

Prompt selection box opens up with the “Available prompt variants” option at the top/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/1__787566.jpg

Enter your selection criteria and click on the “create prompt variant button” (Disc button with the green plus sign)


In the dialog box that appears, enter a name for the variant you are trying to create and click OK. The variant has been created


To use the created variant, when you open a new report, on the prompts screen, click the drop down arrow on the available prompts variant box and select the variant you created.


The prompt become prefilled with your selection…


You can then hit OK and run the report.

You can also alter the values in any of the prompts and hit the save button (Disc without the green + sign) and it would save your new values. You can also hit the X sign to delete a variant you no longer need.
