1753465 - How do you prevent multiple BI 4.0 Web Intelligence sessions from being created by BI Web Services consumed by Dashboards?


  • BI 4.0 Support Package 04 (SP04) used to create Web Intelligence (WebI) BI Web Services or Query as a Web Service (QaaWS).
  • The Web Services data source is consumed via Live Office by a Dashboard.
  • Every time the Dashboard is refreshed, multiple Web Intelligence Processing Server connections are opened.
  • The number of connections opened is unexpected, since it is much larger than the number of data sources used within the Dashboard.
  • As the Dashboard is refreshed multiple times, the number of connections exceeds the maximum allowed, resulting in error "Unable to connect to service WebiPlugin.WebiSession"
