Not a request for votes, but a request for help.... has anyone figured out how to actually search the new "improved" improvement request site to look for similar ideas?

The only search I've been able to find searches the ENTIRE site, not just the section I'm in, and pulls back irrelevant garbage and I can't find a way to refine it to just LP, WebI, CMC, etc.

Also found the filter page in the section, but it only lets you filter on predefined tags, status and a few other things, you can't do a text search.

...And can't find a place to make a suggestion about the site itself and the help page, well um-mm...

Yes, it's a PItA right now, but they are promising improved search capability later this month. See the answer to the question I posted today on SCN: https://answers.sap.com/questions/379734

That works! And hey, someone posted a link to the idea site for the idea site in response. Did you create an idea for the search issues (if so, I'll vote for it... if I can find it icon_razz.gif ) or are you waiting to see what the update brings?

Hello, SAP BI world

Today I went through the idea portal and voted for one interesting idea - data purge functionality in CMC, couple of our customers asked for it and I developed the script with SDK, for few of them we suggested 360 suite, but if SAP can deliver as a default functionality, then that would be great.

Please vote, if you find it useful!

Hmm, I wonder if I posted that off the back off a 'here is what is going to be in SP5' document....you know how they always have a caveat saying this might not be exactly what you end up getting.

Based on a discussion in this thread, Ideas are only reviewed by SAP after receiving a certain number of votes. So, I'm asking for assistance from the BOB community icon_mrgreen.gif Below are some of the Ideas I have submitted; please help me by voting for any and all that you agree with.

  • Universe-based variables: Need the ability to define a WebI variable in the universe; which could then be selected as a result object in any report.
  • Separate "Edit" and "Overwrite" rights: In XI3, it is not possible to enable a user to use "Modify" mode on a report without also granting the ability to overwrite the report.
    Request to either:

    1) Create a new right that would enable the use of Modify mode, while leaving the behavior of "Edit objects" as-is, or

    2) Change the behavior of "Edit objects" to just enable the use of Modify mode, and create a new right "Overwrite objects" to allow the user to overwrite the report.
  • Replace original report when scheduling: Although Instances are very useful, there are times when it would be convienient to simply replace the original report with the refreshed version, rather than creating an instance. This is particularly true for users who schedule reports from their Favorites, and have no way of setting the instance limit from Infoview. Request to add an option when scheduling, to "Replace original report upon successful completion".
  • Report listing columns: Request to give users more options as to the columns available for display in the Infoview report list. "Last Saved Date" is much more useful to us that "Last Run".
  • "Delete File" option on File Events
  • Overwrite mode for Inbox docs
  • Scheduled report status in Infoview: In 6.5, Infoview users had a BCA Console view from the Infoview home page. Need to have something similar to this for XI.
    Also, it would be great to have an alert in the Infoview main header when users' scheduled reports complete.
  • Search within an empty search result: Whenever I search for something in XI3, then perform another search, the second search is done within the results of the first search. This is handy (sometimes), but completely useless when the first search produces no results. Request to change this behavior, so a search will instead replace the original search, if no results were produced.
  • Don't display context prompt when it is irrelevant: Example: Universe contains four tables, A, B, C, D. Context 1 includes tables A, B, and C; Context 2 includes tables B, C, and D. If I build a query that includes objects from tables B and C, then I am prompted to choose the context. Regardless of the context I choose, the SQL is still constructed in the same way. WebI should detect that the SQL from both contexts would be identical, and therefore not display a context prompt.
  • Job Server security: Need the ability to apply security to Job Servers, to prevent their use by reports that are scheduled without a selected Server Group.


Please feel free to use this thread to shamelessly promote your own icon_smile.gif


So hey where are the ideas from yesterday (errr..I mean from 9 years ago ? ),none are archived anymore ? (SAP did not archive them ?)

Hope all's well !!


-icon_sad.gif Just came here after a long time and also just realized that BOB forum is being retired ...sob ! sob !
