Query Builder in BO – Browse / Query BO Repository

Query Builder is one of the powerful administrative tools in Business Objects and it’s used to query your BO repository to get all kinds of information which is not even available in CMS. It is available only in BO XI R2 and adobe versions.

BO repository has set of tables to store BI information such as Universes, reports, Users, schedules, security that make up your deployment, etc. Repository tables are encrypted in such a way that it can’t query with conventional SQL tools. This is the place where Query Builder tool comes in and get those Repository Tables metadata information. Query Builder is a simple GUI tool which enables the user to run queries against the BO repository (also known as the CMS InfoStore).

The CMS repository stores metadata in the form of InfoObjects. All the contents of BO Enterprise system can be classified into two types: metadata and the actual file. For example, if there is a Crystal Report document in the BOE system, the metadata (including Report name, type, ID, CUID, path, etc.) is stored as an InfoObject in the CMS Repository. The Crystal Report document itself (i.e. the .rpt file) is stored as a file on the File Repository Server (FRS).

Note:  To access your Query Builder, use the below URL link in the Web browser.

https://<ServerName>/AdminTools/querybuilder/ie.jsp&#8221;

CMS Repository Structure

The CMS metadata is physically stored on a database, but we browse the InfoObjects from virtual tables. To give a clear picture, let’s begin with physical structure at the database level.

Physical Database Tables
There are 6 tables on the database level to store the metadata.

CMS_VersionInfo  – Contains the current version of BO Enterprise.

CMS_InfoObjects – Important table in the repository and each row in this table stores a single InfoObject. The table contains the following columns:
ObjectID, ParentID, TypeID, OwnerID, Version, LastModifyTime, ScheduleStatus, NextRunTime, CRC, Properties, SI_GUID, SI_CUID, SIRUID, SI_INSTANCE_OBJECT, SI_PLUGIN_OBJECT, SI_TABLE, SI_HIDDEN_OBJECT, SI_NAMEDUSER, SI_RECURRING, SI_RUNNABLE_OBJECT, SI_PSS_SERVICE_ID, ObjName_TR, SI_KEYWORD, SI_KEYWORD_TR, LOV_KEY.

CMS_Aliases6 – This table maps the user alias to the corresponding user ID. A user has an alias for each security domain in which they are members. For example, a user may have both a Win AD alias and an LDAP alias. Regardless of the number of aliases a user may have, in the BI Platform each user has only one user ID. The map is stored in a separate table to enable fast logins.

CMS_IdNumbers6 – The CMS uses this table to generate unique Object IDs and Type IDs. It has only two rows: an Object ID row and a Type ID row. The CMSs in a cluster use this table when generating unique ID numbers. GUIDs, RUIDs and CUID are generated with an algorithm that does not use the database.

CMS_Relationships6 – Relationship tables are used to store the relations between InfoObjects. Each row in the table stores one edge in the relation. For example, the relation between a Web Intelligence document and a Universe would be stored in a row in the WebI – Universe Relation table. Each relationship table has these columns:
Parent Object ID,Child Object ID,Relationship InfoObject ID ( this Default InfoObject “DFO” describes the properties of the link between the two objects.), member, version, ordinal, data. Relationship tables are defined by default objects.

CMS_LOCKS6 – This is auxiliary table of CMS_RELATIONS6

Virtual Tables in BO Repository

The repository information is stored in the form of InfoObject and CMS can read repository tables from virtual tables. Which are described detailed manner as given below.

Reository Tables

Description

CI_SYSTEMOBJECTS

Contains User, User Group, Server, Server Group ,Folder, Sub Folder, Connection, Calendar, Event information

CI_INFOOBJECTS

Contains Webi, Crystal Report, Full Client, PowerPoint, Pdf, Excel, Word, Rtf, Txt, Program, Shortcut information

CI_APPOBJECTS

Contains Universe information

Note: When you log in to Query Builder, Log on as Administrator, so that you will get complete (full) access to the repository objects.

Query Builder Limitations:

Query Builder has limitations and below is the details.

  • Need to write the query manually in the Query Builder or you can use the step-by-step wizard to build the query which is too simplistic.
  • You should be aware the complete Repository table Names, objects and what kind of information it holds on.
  • Need to write several queries to get the required result. For example, If you want the objects in the folder, first you have to write a query to get the Folder ID, then use that ID and get the object in that particular folder.
  • Query Builder returns the result set by individual tables (Structure of the Result) and you have to copy past each & every tables and made your required format.
  • Cannot execute / run multiple queries in parallel.
  • The Default limit for returning objects would be 1000 objects. In order to get more than 1000 objects we need to use ‘Top N’ function before the column listing in the query. For ex.  SELECT Top 2000 * FROM CI_INFOOBJECTS
  • Query Builder won’t allow Sub queries.
  • The order of columns selected in the SELECT clause has no impact in the result returned and in its own order and order cannot be changed.

  1. Nice Blog Overall. I have an other query, currently we are using BO 4.1 in that we need to see all the BO sers who ran/executed a particular BO report in recent past. Is there any way to get the list using query builder?

    • Hi Akash,

      Query for the Input File Repository Server (iFRS).

      SELECT TOP 1 SI_NAME, SI_SERVER_DESCRIPTOR, SI_SERVER_IS_ALIVE, SI_STATUS_CHECK_TS
      FROM CI_SYSTEMOBJECTS
      WHERE SI_PROGID=’CrystalEnterprise.Server’
      AND SI_SERVER_KIND=’fileserver’
      AND SI_SERVER_IS_ALIVE=1
      AND SI_NAME LIKE ‘%Input%’
      ORDER BY SI_SERVER_DESCRIPTOR

      you can modify the query to SI_NAME LIKE ‘%Output%’ to examine the Output File Repository servers (oFRS) instead.

      Also you can try the below to get server information.

      SELECT * FROM CI_SYSTEMOBJECTS WHERE SI_ID=4

      SELECT * FROM CI_SYSTEMOBJECTS
      WHERE SI_KIND = ‘SERVER’ AND SI_NAME LIKE ‘%FILEREPOSITORY%’

      Thanks & Regards

        • Hi Krish,

          To list Universe that doesn’t associated with any WebI reports

          SELECT si_id,si_name,si_webi,si_cuid FROM CI_AppObjects
          WHERE si_kind = ‘Universe’ and SI_WEBI.SI_TOTAL=0

          To list Universes with more than one connections (multi source universe)

          SELECT si_id,si_name,si_webi,si_cuid FROM CI_AppObjects
          WHERE si_kind = ‘Universe’ and SI_DATACONNECTION.SI_TOTAL>1

          To list WebI reports that doesn’t associated with any universe

          SELECT TOP 50000 si_id,SI_NAME FROM CI_Infoobjects
          WHERE si_kind = ‘WebI’ AND SI_INSTANCE=0 and SI_UNIVERSE.SI_TOTAL=0

          To list reports and documents those are in public folders including Sub folders. (Excluding instances, personal documents and inbox documents)

          SELECT * FROM CI_INFOOBJECTS WHERE SI_KIND IN (‘FullClient’, ‘Txt’, ‘Excel’, ‘Webi’, ‘Analysis’, ‘Pdf’, ‘Word’, ‘Rtf’, ‘CrystalReport’, ‘Agnostic’) AND SI_RUNNABLE_OBJECT = 0 AND SI_INSTANCE_OBJECT = 0 AND SI_ANCESTOR = 23

          Find all the WebI reports that use a specific universe

          SELECT SI_ID, SI_NAME, SI_WEBI, SI_OWNER FROM CI_INFOOBJECTS, CI_SYSTEMOBJECTS, CI_APPOBJECTS
          Where PARENTS (“SI_NAME = ‘Webi-Universe'”, “SI_NAME = ‘Universe Name'”)

          To List of all Groups with Subgroups

          Select SI_ID, SI_ALIASES, SI_DESCRIPTION, SI_NAME, SI_USERGROUPS, SI_GROUP_MEMBERS from CI_SYSTEMOBJECTS where si_kind = ‘UserGroup’

          To get a list of Full Client reports

          SELECT SI_ID, SI_NAME, SI_KIND FROM CI_INFOOBJECTS WHERE SI_KIND = ‘FullClient’

          To get a list of available Calendars

          SELECT * FROM CI_SYSTEMOBJECTS WHERE SI_PARENTID=22

          To get a list of Users along with their personal folder

          SELECT * FROM CI_INFOOBJECTS WHERE SI_PARENTID=18

          To get a list of Users along with their inbox

          SELECT * FROM CI_INFOOBJECTS WHERE SI_PARENTID=48

          To get a list of available categories

          SELECT * FROM CI_INFOOBJECTS WHERE SI_PARENTID=45

          To count total number of connection on a particular day (Today)

          SELECT count (SI_CREATION_TIME) FROM CI_SYSTEMOBJECTS
          WHERE SI_LASTLOGONTIME> ‘2013.02.14.00.00.01’ AND SI_KIND = ‘Connection’

          To get total number of unique users logged in to the system on a particular day (Today)

          WHERE SI_LASTLOGONTIME> ‘2013.02.14.00.00.01’ AND SI_KIND = ‘Connection’

          Points to consider while querying
          the default limit for returning objects would be 1000 objects normally. In order to get more than 1000 objects we need to use ‘Top N’ function before the column listing in the query. For ex. SELECT Top 2000 * FROM CI_INFOOBJECTS where Si_KIND=’WebI’
          You are not allowed to use Sub queries.
          The order of columns in the SELECT clause has no impact as the results will be rendered in its own order

          Thanks & Regards

    • We cannot get WEBI report SQL using query builder because reports SQL generated on the runtime. You can try using Audit DB or SAP information Steward or try some BO SDK.

  2. Hi Madesh,

    Great information about the query builder. I was trying to schedule a monthly BO report which can take the output of query ran on Query Builder as a source, is there any way I can create output in a excel format automatically or in a scheduled way?

    Thanks,
    SG

    • Thanks!

      You can get the Query Builder Result into Excel using third party tool (InfoStore Query Builder)

      The purpose of the InfoStore Query Builder tool is to simplify building CMS metadata queries and provide possibly to export the result to Excel.

      BO XI 3.1: Download

      BO BI 4.0: Download

      Thanks
      MadhesDWBI

      • Hey Madhes

        Another way they can save to excel is save the output page as txt from (Page Settings) Save as txt, then open in Excel.

  3. We have scheduled reports running on daily/monthly basis. I need to develop a portal which will display the list of reports completed today. Could you please help

    • HI, You Can achieve your requirement using Query builder or some third party tools like Apos, Infoobjects, etc.,

      You can try with below Query in Query builder To get the list of all reports scheduled and below are some samples and you have to tune to get your needs.

      SELECT SI_ID, SI_NAME, SI_SCHEDULEINFO.SI_SCHEDULE_TYPE,
      SI_SCHEDULEINFO.SI_SCHEDULE_INTERVAL_NDAYS, SI_SCHEDULEINFO. SI_SCHEDULE_INTERVAL_NTHDAY, SI_SCHEDULEINFO. SI_SCHEDULE_INTERVAL_MONTHS
      FROM CI_INFOOBJECTS
      WHERE SI_SCHEDULE_STATUS !=8 AND SI_RECURRING = 1

      select SI_NAME, SI_SCHEDULEINFO.SI_SUBMITTER, SI_SCHEDULEINFO.SI_STARTTIME from CI_INFOOBJECTS where SI_SCHEDULEINFO.SI_STARTTIME>=’2015.07.10.20.00.00′ and SI_SCHEDULEINFO.SI_STARTTIME<'2015.07.11.13.00.00' order by SI_SCHEDULEINFO.SI_STARTTIME 00

      Thanks

  4. Great blog entry.
    I’ve just begun using Query Builder and am having some difficulty pulling some data. I’m looking to pull the report name, when it is scheduled to run (daily,weekly,etc.) and the email address the report is being mailed out to.

    I found this query but it’s not pulling back the destination email addresses. Could you assist?

    SELECT
    SI_DESTINATIONS.SI_DEST_SCHEDULEOPTIONS.SI_MAIL_ADDRESSES,
    SI_ID, SI_NAME, SI_SCHEDULEINFO.SI_SCHEDULE_TYPE,

    SI_SCHEDULEINFO.SI_SCHEDULE_INTERVAL_NDAYS, SI_SCHEDULEINFO. SI_SCHEDULE_INTERVAL_NTHDAY, SI_SCHEDULEINFO. SI_SCHEDULE_INTERVAL_MONTHS

    FROM CI_INFOOBJECTS

    WHERE SI_SCHEDULE_STATUS !=8 AND SI_RECURRING = 1

    • Hi Mik,

      Use the below query to get your destination email address.

      SELECT SI_SCHEDULEINFO.SI_DESTINATION,
      SI_SCHEDULEINFO.SI_MAIL_ADDRESSES,
      SI_SCHEDULEINFO.SI_NAME
      FROM CI_INFOOBJECTS WHERE SI_KIND = ‘your report details’

      Thanks

  5. I was wondering if it’s possible to see what non-scheduled Crystalreport is running and who’s running it. I mean the ones that are stared manualy. What I’m looking for is a way to detect what report might cause a high CPU usage. Hopefully figure out what the PID is from that report and kill it?

      • Hi,

        it works with the following statement:

        SELECT SI_ID, SI_NAME, SI_DOCUMENT FROM CI_APPOBJECTS WHERE SI_KIND = ‘CommonConnection’ AND SI_ID = ‘SI_ID of my OLAP connection’

  6. Hi,
