Publication using multiple values in the dynamic user list

Hello Everyone,

I have been trying to schedule a publication using the dynamic user list. We have webi report which has the object for "Marketing Fare Basis" and dynamic user list also contains the same field.

We have successfully scheduled this publication for the dynamic users, however we have found that when we specify multiple fare basis for any particular user in the dynamic user list then it does not work.

Following is the dynamic list we have used which did not work.

Marketing Fare BasisEmail
RACPabc@xxxxxxxx.com
RTBE;BTWE;UTAExyz@xxxxxxxx.com
BJGN;RJGNpqr@xxxxxxxx.com

This publication has successfully delivered the report to user abc, however it failed to deliver to the users xyz and pqr.

Source document has the prompt for marketing fare basis and specifying multiple values while viewing this report works fine.

We have found that publication does not work when we specify multiple marketing fare basis in the dynamic user list as RTSBAE;BTSBAE;UTSBAE(using the semicolon).

If we specify these marketing fare basis values line by line in the dynamic user list then it works fine. We have used the following dynamic user list which has worked fine.

Marketing Fare BasisEmail
RACPabc@xxxxxxxx.com
RTBExyz@xxxxxxxx.com
BTWExyz@xxxxxxxx.com
UTAExyz@xxxxxxxx.com
BJGNpqr@xxxxxxxx.com
RJGNpqr@xxxxxxxx.com

Later we have found one more problem that the above successful publication has actually sent the PDF files for all of the fare basis individually i.e. it has sent 3 PDF files to xyz user and 2 PDF files to pqr user.

Whereas it should have sent only 1 PDF file to each of these users i.e. 1 PDF file to abc user for the "RACP" marketing fare basis, 1 PDF file to xyz user for RTBE,BTWE,UTAE and 1 PDF file to pqr user for BJGN,RJGN.

So our observation is, It simply did not merge the data into a single PDF file. We had selected the merge option while scheduling this publication.

I would like to know whether anyone has faced the same issue with the publication or not and whether we have any option to merge the data into a single PDF file for the multiple marketing fare basis using the dynamic user list. Can we use , or ; to specify multiple values in the dynamic user list?

Appreciate all your help.

Hi All,

Finally I have resolved this by mapping a group object in the dynamic user list and in a source document, hence marking this as resolved.
