Specifying Burst Output Labels

To identify burst output report names and subfolder names:

  1. From the Explore Repository, select Navigate, then Schedule, and then Batch Scheduler.
  2. On the Schedule Batch screen, in the Bursted Output Labels area, define an Object Label and a SubFolder Label.

The Object Label and SubFolder Label fields display two default text functions that enable you to identify the report and subfolder names. Click Function icon to select additional text functions. Click Test icon to test the functions.

Example 7-1 Available Functions for Bursted Reports

  • <<MemberName()>>—Returns the name of the member being burst. This function takes no parameters.

  • <<MemberAlias()>>—Returns the alias of the member being burst. This function takes no parameters.

  • <<MemberDescription()>>—Returns the description of the member being burst. This function takes no parameters.

  • <<BatchPovMember(“DataSrcName”,”DimName”)>>—Returns the name of the POV member being burst, where DataSrcName is the name of a data source of the desired POV (a batch can point to two or more POVs), and DimName is the name of the dimension under the given POV whose member name is to be extracted.

  • <<BatchPovAlias(“DataSrcName”,”DimName”)>>—Returns the alias of the POV member of the report being burst, where DataSrcName is the name of a data source of the desired POV (a batch can point to two or more POVs), and DimName is the name of the dimension under the given POV whose member alias is to be de extracted.

  • <<BatchPovDescription (“DataSrcName”, “DimName”)>>—Returns the description of the POV member of the report being burst, where DataSrcName is the name of a data source for the desired POV (a batch can point to two or more POVs), and DimName is the name of the dimension under the given POV whose member description is to be extracted.

  • <<FinancialReportingObjectName()>>—Returns the name of the Financial Reporting object being burst. This is typically the report name. This function takes no parameters.

  • <<Financial ReportingObjectDescription()>>—Returns the description of the Financial Reporting object being burst. This is typically the report description. This function takes no parameters.

  • <<Date(“format”)>>—Returns the date and time that an online report is populated with data, or the date and time a snapshot report is saved, where format is a list of characters enclosed in quotation marks that define the format of the date and time.

Note:

When POV-related functions (BatchPovMember, BatchPovAlias, and BatchPovDescription) are added, the parameter values must be surrounded by double quotation marks. For example: <<BatchPovDescription(“Planning sample basic on ProdServer1”,”Product”>>, where “Planning sample basic on ProdServer1” is the data source name and “Product” is the dimension name.
