Customer desires the creation of Web Catalog objects to be automated versus creating them manually via the UI.
For scorecards, this can be done successfully via web services to create objectives, initiatives etc.
For KPIs, there is no public documentation available for doing the same. When trying to do this / simulating it at the OS level ... by renaming the object's file and the associated .atr file, and also editing the actual .atr file ... and the name is > 55 characters then BI will encode it differently, and the change does not take effect.

How does OBIEE code handle the names of objects in the web catalog?
