BusinessObjects Board

object name is NULL during logon event

Hi All,

We’re running SAP BusinessObjects BI Platform 4.2 Support Pack 4 (Version: and the audit db is on Oracle.

(1) If I run the below query (with the last 2 conditions commented) I get logon/logout event logged for same session
(2) If I run query with the last 2 conditions un-commented, I get prompt/refresh/save event logged for same
session, sometimes modify event with/without prompt/refresh/save is logged

In both the cases the session_id’s are different.

When I run a report (after authentication), I assume the event should be in the order as logon/prompt/refresh/save/logout.
Because the object_name is NULL in logon/logout event, I could not match if these events belong to the same object for
which I’ve prompt/refresh/save events captured.

I understand during logon the object requested is not known, but when a session created after successful authentication,
the user would run a report under the same session, why session_id changes? Does anyone have any idea about this?
Am not sure what am I missing here.

Any suggestions on this would be highly appreciated.
