Business Objects - Webi - Purging Data From a Report

The article explains how to purge data in a Business Objects Report in Webi.

Business Objects reports stored in Launch Pad for public use should not be saved with data. Also when sharing documents with others you should always clear the data stored in the BO document to prevent sharing unauthorized information with others. Different individuals have security access to different areas and levels of data and information shouldn't be disclosed that others may not have access or a reason to see.

  1. Log in to Business Objects Launch Pad
  2. Open the report for Modify that needs to be purged
  3. Click on the Data Access tab and then click on the Purge Data button on the toolbar. Note: if the report has more than one query you have the option of purging the data from individual queries or All Data.

  5. Save the report

  6. Close the report
