Question

Can you control the number of CA Business Intelligence (CABI) scheduled reports instance that are retained?

Answer

A scheduled report instance management plan enables you to:

 

 -  Identify scheduled reports and their frequency of schedule
 -  Control retention period till which report instances need to be maintained
 -  Verify size of each report instance and the amount of disk space required
 -  Perform scheduled report instance cleanup

Key Benefits 

- Reduced File Repository Store backup size.
- Users need not search trough a huge list of instances.
- By controlling the number of instances, minimize the amount of space required on CABI server

Can manage instances by setting instance limits at below levels

 

  • Global limits (If it is required to set the limit throughout all the public folders and sub folders, set limits at global level)
  • Folder limits (Will help set the limits for all the objects contained within a folder)
  • Object limits (Applying limits to specific object - this will override the limit set at folder level)
