  1. Hi Madesh,
    I was working as sysadmin. Now i moved to bo development project. Now i need to get kt from existing team member who is going to exit in a while. They asked me to prepare the kt plan. could you pls let me know, what are things need to be covered in kt for bo development project. Also in informatica side as well. could you pls share your thought?

    • Hi, you can get universe design & development ( all major functions) and report creation (table, chart, crosstab), ranking, etc., also it’s depends on your project specific requirement.

      • Hi Madhes,

        I am getting cobra error while communicating with the sl service fix in one of my Webi reports
        This reports BICs query reports, After running for more than 10 mins its throwing error.

      • Hi Madesh,

        Kindly let me know how to get the details of the reports that has generated but has no records.

        i mean the reports that are scheduled at a specific time will run even though the back end job has not completed, due to which the reports will have zero records, how can we catch these type of reports from CMS repository.

        • Hi Karthikeyan,

          Try to create back end job completion alert and send that file to BO server. In BO create file based event and make the event to wait for the back end completion file and schedule your report based on that event, so that you can avoid this scenario.
