Symptom

The reports that are currently scheduled under the Report Distributor are not showing at the Report Center

Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental.

Environment

  • SAP SuccessFactors Workforce Analytics
  • Report Distributor
  • Report Center

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Report Distributor.
  2. Check a Specific Bundle that contains Items on it.
  3. Go to Report Center.
  4. Can not find the report that was available at the Report Distributor.

Cause

Actually, the items located under the bundle at the Report Distributor aren't Reports, but Queries, and these aren't visible at the Report Center while searching for the report.

You can add Reports, Components of a Canvas Report, and Queries to the Report Distributor.

Notice that there is an image at the left side of the Item, which specifies which kind of Item it is. If you hover the mouse above it, it will show

The Bar Icon Bar Icon.jpg refers to queries, and those will not be available under the Report Center unless you add it into a Canvas Report.

Resolution

So you can see the query under the Report Center, you will need to add it inside a Canvas Report, so you will be able to search the Report Center for the report itself. In order to do it, you can check this link at the Help Portal.
