SmartView Documentation to Share Smart Queries is Misleading. Unable to Share SmartView Smart Queries (Doc ID 1550942.1)

Last updated on JULY 29, 2016

Applies to:

Hyperion Essbase - Version 11.1.2.3.000 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Smart View 11.1.2.2.103

The documentation in the Smart View User Guide is misleading.

Unable to find a mechanism or function to share the Smart Queries with other users as expected from documentation.

Chapter 8 - Smart Queries
Paragraph "Creating a Smart Query" states:

"Once a Smart Query is created, you can use it for ad hoc reporting and analysis. Smart Queries can be saved, reused, and shared. Sets and filters can be saved individually for use in other Smart Queries."

When the customer saves the Smart Query, a Repository window pops up. This window gives the idea that the customer is working with the APS repository or with the Essbase server. The users are then expecting to see the saved Smart Queries in the Essbase server or in their view when they log into Essbase via APS. This is not the case.
