Filed under: SAP Business Objects — Shahfaisal @ 11:20 am

It is the process of planning and managing the content of a system so as to ease the support and maintenance of that system. Besides ease and maintenance, a well deigned content management strategy helps in:
• Creating a secure implementation thereby protecting confidential information.
• Preventing information overload from users accessing too many objects which also avoids unnecessary hits to data sources.
• An efficient structure for users to find the information they need.

The first stage of planning is to analyze stakeholder requirements. The results will provide the information needed to create the content management plan. logical content plan involves mapping out who needs access to what content, then organizing users and content based on those needs. This is accomplished by:

• Creating a folder structure and organizing objects.
• Creating a group structure and organizing users.
• Specifying user and group access levels for folders and objects.
• Creating Profiles for structured personalization.
• Creating corporate categories and assigning objects.

InfoView/WebI Session Timeout

Filed under: SAP Business Objects — Shahfaisal @ 9:24 pm

The configuration is platform dependent. If you are on a .Net platform you need to edit the web.config file and if you are on a java platform, you need to edit the web.xml file. The default time is 20 minutes.

For .NET platform

C: \Program Files\Business Objects\BusinessObjects Enterprise 11.5\Web Content\Enterprise115\InfoView

Look for “timeout” and modify it accordingly.

For Java Platform

C: \Program Files\Business Objects\Tomcat\webapps\businessobjects\enterprise115\desktoplaunch\WEB-INF

Note: Please back the files up before making any changes.

Database compatibility level, what happens after upgrade

Filed under: SQL Server Database — Tags: , , , , , , — Shahfaisal @ 8:04 pm

What is Database compatibility level?
The database compatibility level determines how certain database behaviors work. During the upgrade process(in-place upgrade) to SQL Server 2008, a database will retain its existing compatibility level if the compatibility level is greater than or equal to 80; otherwise, Setup will automatically set the compatibility level to 80.
Note: However, the System Databases will have the compatibility level of 100 when upgraded to 2008.

How can we change the Database compatibility level?
Right-click the database, and then click Properties. Go to options and the compatibility level is displayed in the Compatibility level list box.
