Corporate Reports in the Business Objects Repository - Assets Data

The Business Objects repository contains reports which users can use to retrieve data to which they have access. To import reports for your own use:

Using InfoView:

The InfoView web page allows you to view the list of corporate documents in the Business Objects repository and refresh and download those documents via the web. To access the corporate documents using InfoView (Business Objects users only):

  1. Point your browser to
    https://bobjprod.isc-seo.upenn.edu/InfoViewApp/logon.jsp
  2. Enter your Business Objects ID and password in the User Name and Password fields that appear. Click OK to continue to the InfoView Welcome page.
  3. The InfoView web portal allows you to view the list of reports in the Business Objects Public Folders, refresh those documents via the web, and if desired, save them to your desktop as Excel or pdf files. The Public Folders are listed in InfoView when you navigate to "Document List." You will only be able to view or use reports in the public folders that you have access to. Documents should be renamed and saved to your own "My Favorites" folder on the portal if you need to edit them using Webi. Documents can only be edited in Webi when placed in your "My Favorites" folder.
