Now calls are something like:

Hi Darío,

I was going through one more article to redirect OpenDocument URL link from XI 3.1 to Xi 4.0 :

Please take a backup before performing the below steps:

1. In the web Application Server (Tomcat) :

Go to the installation directory of BusinessObjects and Copy from BO XI 3.1 the folder "E:\Program Files (x86)\SAP BusinessObjects XI3.1\Tomcat6\webapps\OpenDocument"


BO 4.0 installation file directory of Tomcat E:\Program Files (x86)\SAP BusinessObjects 4.0\Tomcat6\webapps

2. In the folder "E:\Program Files (x86)\SAP BusinessObjects 4.0\Tomcat6\webapps\OpenDocument\opendoc" search the file openDocument.jsp and replace all the content with:


String redirectURL = "http://myserver/BOE/OpenDocument/opendoc/openDocument.jsp?" + request.getQueryString();



3. Save the changes and restart tomcat.

Let me know if this works for you.
