How to update infoview preferences for all CLARITY users:

You can update all infoview users preferences with one single procedure instead of asking users to login and change it manually.

Solution:

  1. Go to: <BO installation directory>\Dashboard and Analytics 12.0\setup

    Under this path you will find two files prefsCopyUtil.jar and prefsCopyUtil.properties.
    Open the prefsCopyUtil.properties in an editor (ie: notepad). The file looks something like this:

    # The CMS to use.
    CMS=<CMS name>
    # Administrator user s password.
    AdminPassword=<password>
    # User to copy preferences from.
    SourceUser=administrator
    # All users in this group will have their preferences changed to be a copy of
    # the SourceUser s preferences.
    TargetGroup=<target group name>

  2. Update fileprefsCopyUtil.properties with right settings, see below an example:

    # The CMS to use.
    CMS=MyBOServerName

    # Administrator user s password.
    AdminPassword=MyBOAdminPassword
    # User to copy preferences from.
    SourceUser=administrator
    # All users in this group will have their preferences changed to be a copy of
    # the SourceUser s preferences.
    TargetGroup=CA-PPM-Reporting-User

  3. Copy these two files (prefsCopyUtil.jar and prefsCopyUtil.properties) to your Java bin directory:

    <BO installation directory>\Business Objects\javasdk\bin

  4. Open a command prompt and navigate to the Java bin path. Run this command:

    java -jar PrefsCopyUtil.jar PrefsCopyUtil.properties

    It should show something like that:

    [...]
    Retrieved preferences for administrator.
    Copying to all users in group CA-PPM-Reporting-User.
    Copied preferences to user admin.
    Copied preferences to user monitor_admin.
    Copied preferences to user csk.admin.
    Copied preferences to user Test.
    Preferences were copied successfully.
    [...]

  5. Verify users under "CA-PPM-Reporting-User" group have the same InfoView Preferences than user administrator
