SAP BO XI 3.1 CMC Access
Hello respected experts
Need your help to understand the capability of SAP BO.
We are currently using BO XI 3.1 in production and providing hosted reporting services to a number of customers of our in-house Enterprise Accounting software. The Report server is shared by multiple customers, each having multiple users who fire universe based reports.
I want to give access to an "admin" user in each customer so that they can
- see what reports are currently fired by all users of that customer
- kill any running report fired by any user of that customer
- re-schedule report which was scheduled for execution by any user of that customer
The BO Admin team is not able to figure out a way to provide his access and the only solution proposed by them is to migrate to version 4.1 which supports multi-tenanted deployment. This is causing a huge workload on our internal support team to provide this server for our customers.
Is there any hope in version 3.1 or is upgrading to 4.1 the only possible solution?

I don't have any idea about how you have setup the security but if you want to separate the customer group and they only see there reports and customer admin only can delete/schedule there own reports then it is possible.
Users can see the reports scheduling instances by reports folders or Instance manager.In this case let say customer A reports are under A folder and if you provide access only to customer A group on A folder then customer A only can see the folder A.If you give the access to same group on CMC application then if users use the instance manager there they can only see the customer A folder.
Try from side to setup this kind of access and see if it will work.
