getting a list of scheduled reports?

I need to get a list of all reports that are scheduled out of business objects. How does one go about that?

Welcome to B:bob:B!

Are you familiar with Query Builder? You can use it to query the system database.

I believe this will get all instances:

select SI_NAME, SI_KIND from CI_INFOOBJECTS where SI_INSTANCE=1

Unfortunately I do not even know what query builder is. I have very basic knowledge with Business objects and am just learning.

OK, no worries. What version are you using?

SAP Business Objects Desktop XI

Query builder should be available at http:///AdminTools/querybuilder/ie.jsp

would be replaced by your BusinessObjects Server.

Is there a way to also pull destination and frequency? Thanks in advance.

You will have to check the sub-properties of the query provided.

Is there a way to do this through an ODBC connection to, say, Microsoft Access?

I’m on BI4 4.1 SP7, in the process of migrating to 4.2, and it would be super-helpful to create a checklist.

While I’m at it, has anyone ever done this and also brought over folders, universes, and/or user security details?

Hi,
You may find useful Excel macros under BOBJ Downloads section.

Wow, that’s an incredible resource!

Thank you!

Since posting this question, I learned about the the new CMS data access driver, introduced in BI4 4.2 SP3, to accomplish the same thing using a universe and Web Intelligence to query the metadata:

It doesn’t help me for 4.1, but hey…
