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 you want to purge in Modify.

  3. Click the Data Access tab and then click Purge Data on the toolbar.

    Note: if the report has more than one query, you have the option of purging the data from individual queries or from all data.

  4. Purge Data Button on Business Objects Webi

  5. Click Yes to purge the data from the report. If the report includes prompts, you will have the option of clearing the prompt values.
