List webi reports based on a BW OLAP Connection
<< I thought this was working – but NOT YET 🙁 !! >> The results are very inconsistent, to the point where a space in the connection name can cause a problem.
I have older connections which resolve OK, but later one’s don’t. If you have correct results, please let me know.
Listing all Webi reports used by an OLAP connection as there is no Relationship query, is something I have been putting off for a while and I am still trying to work out / finalise. There are still a lot of “LIKE” clauses and not the actual full string.
The tool to use is the query builder:
Use the query:
SI_ID, SI_NAME, SI_KIND, SI_OWNER
PARENTS(“SI_NAME LIKE ‘%Connection%'”,
“CHILDREN(‘SI_NAME LIKE ”CommonConnection-%” ‘,’SI_NAME=”Vendor Balances” ‘)”)
The SI_NAME marked in bold is the name of your OLAP connection (case sensitive). In my case that is “Vendor Balances”.
If you have any further information to replace the LIKE clauses with exact strings, please post below this blog.
