Deploy Xcelsius template-based analytics with Analytic Template Publisher

About

You use the “Analytic Template Publisher” to publish your Crystal Xcelsius templates to the BusinessObjects Enterprise Central Management Server ( CMS ).

This allows you to use them in Dashboard Builder to create new BOBJ - Analytics.

You can log into any Central Management Server ( CMS ) from the Analytic Template Publisher.

The Data Exploration analytics, as well as the Bubble, Radar and Pie charts in the Dashboard Builder analytics are Xcelsius template-based analytics that are available in the Dashboard Builder Create New Analytic tab. You use the Analytic Template Publisher to deploy these templates.

Deploy the new analytics (bubble, pie chart, …)

Before you can publish Crystal Xcelsius templates to the CMS, you need to have the ability to publish to and retrieve documents from the CMS.

To install the Bubble, Pie and Radar chart analytics, run the following command line in the folder :

  • [BO_INSTALL_DIR]\Performance Management 12\setup
  • or [BO_INSTALL_DIR]\Dashboard and Analytics 12.0\setup for XI3.1
java -jar XCTemplateUploaderBatch.jar -cms [MACHINE_NAME] -user [ADMIN_LOGIN_NAME] -pass [ADMIN_PASSWORD]
-fmkdir templates.zip

I have seen that you have also a samples.zip then I perform this above :

Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]

C:\Documents and Settings\Nicolas>cd C:\Program Files\Business Objects\Performance Management 12.0\setup
