Hi all,

By using the Browser ( with the Same connectivity setttings in Ipad, Iphone - wireless ) we can logon to that server by using the IP and host name to see the reports..

so, then why we need the SAP business objects explorer from itunes and why we need to set the Mobi.properties,

and how can we set the Mobi.properties. (Steps)

Could you Please reply me for this.. M getting confuse by this.

Thanks in advance
BO User..

New MOBI administrator guide got recently posted in SAP Help portal. It has detailed instructions.

At a high level:

1. Need to download the MOBI app from apple app store. it is different than the Explorer one.
2. Uper right corner of the app takes you to the options. You can set the server url and credentials there
3. Webi Reports need to be saved with mobile category

That's all. Hope it helps.

did you get this working? am trying to get mobile for android working on BOXI4 SP3.... but the SAP documentation for it appears to be out of date (it refers you to files that do not exist on a BI 4 SP2 install)

Although there is a SAP BI Mobile app for it, I get the following error message when trying to connect:

"This version is not supported by the application; contact your administrator(MOB08007)

** SUBSEQUENT INFO **

found the SP04 fix pack... will upgrade and retry

We are able to connect to BO 4.0 SP2 FP15 server with SAP BI iPad app both with an AD account (end-user in a BO administrator group) and with an Enterprise account (Administrator). We have created a corporate category "Mobile" and assigned some Webi reports to it, but no reports are displayed in the iPad app. Any advice?

consider the writing of the category - default would be: Mobile
"mobile" would not work for example!

Be aware Android APPS only in Version 2x & 3x are available -at the moment - popular Android 4 NOT! - and don't wonder the Version of the Android app is 4.05 - but that's only the APP Version - not related to the os!

Does It means that using Android 4.0.3 BOXI Apps doesn't works fine ?
