Exporting Webi reports to another server
I have webi reports in dev that need to go to production.
How would I be able to save/export the webi report from the dev server to the production server in webi (without using the migration tool) ?
Yes this is possible without using the Import wizard but its a lengthy process.
Its ok if you have only a fwe reports. For large number of reports it might not be feasible.
On your dev environment:
Find out the path of the .wid file using the CMC.
On the basis of this path find and copy the .wid file.
Paste this file somehwre on your production machine.
Create a new Webi report in Production and save it.
Find out the path using CMC. - (A)
Copy the name of the .wid file.
Rename the file that you brought from dev to this file name.
Copy this renamed file and paste it on the path in step (A).
It would prompt you that there exist a file with the same name, hence say yes to replace the file.
Go to Infoview and open the report that you created and saved.
It will open up the report you brought from dev.
Go to Edit Query.
Under the properties tab you would find an option to select Universe.
Repoint this report to the correct Universe.
This should work. Its a little complex but its the only solution if you dont't want to use Import Wizard.
