ManagerO universe / Repository documentation

Author: Business Objects

The ManagerO universe is used to report against the repository tables. Note that this version is for an Oracle-based repository. The repository documentation is a series of HTML files, listing and describing each of the repository tables. These files are the same files distributed in the freeware directory of the version 5 installation disk(s).

As a convenience to our members, the repository reference from the “Freeware” folder on the BusinessObjects cdrom has been loaded on BOB’s server.

Hello BO guru!

Is there a similar download for the repository for BO XI 3.1?
I found a Query Builder helper…but it would be great if i can write queries as a freehand SQL and put that onto a report to track some of the key auditor/CMS activity.

Thanks so much

Hi Pavan -

The Business Objects repository database cannot be queried for version XIR2, XI3 and BI4 using this download link.

The new CMS repository is accessibly only (officially) via specialized APIs; we’ve built a similar driver/universe layer for XI3 and BI4 for folks like yourself; visit our site and you’ll find the download link there.

Hope this helps -
