Tool that uses the Webi SDK to perform a change source of multiple Webi documents in an automated way
My name is Robert Twigg and I work on the SAP Webi Support team. I also have some background with the RESTful Web Services SDK for Web Intelligence. While working on the Webi support team, I have noticed that a frequent and significant issue that is encountered is Webi documents no longer having connectivity to their universe. In many of these cases, the solution is to repoint the Webi document to the universe. This is a particular headache when there are numerous Webi documents that need to be repointed. With my understanding of the Webi RESTful Web Services SDK, I thought that this is something that could be made a lot easier by finding an automated way to do this. So, I decided to put something out on the SAP community that can be used to make this easier. I have created a wiki in the SDK portion of SCN which can be reach at the following link:
Tool that uses the RESTful Web Services SDK for Web Intelligence to perform a change source of multiple Webi documents in an automated way
On the wiki, you will find a tool that allows for a change source to be done to a single Webi document or to a number of Webi documents where the document Ids are stored in a file. The source code for this tool is also included in the link. The wiki also includes information about how this tool works. Please check out the above wiki and provide any comments there.
