1288566 - Migration of Xcelsius dashboard based on QAAWS.


Migration of dashboard based on QAAWS connection from one server to another does not display the data in Info view.


Product: Xcelsius 2008, Business Objects Enterprise XI R2 with SP2, Query as a Web Services.

Service Pack/ Hot Fix: SP1 and FP1 for Xcelsius 2008.Operating Systems: Windows Server 2003, windows XP Professional (for the client machine).

Office: Microsoft Office 2003.

Reproducing the Issue

  • Create a WSDL in Query as a Web Service (QAAWS).
  • Import the query into Xcelsius.
  • Map the WSDL data with excel cells.
  • Create a dashboard with some components.
  • Publish the SWF to Business Objects Enterprise.
  • Preview the SWF in Info view and it works.
  • Migrate the SWF to another Enterprise Server using the import wizard.
  • The SWF will not show the data when previewed from the new server.


The data is not displayed in the new server because the Web Service URL of QAAWS still points to the old server.


  • When designing the Dashboard in Xcelsius using QAAWS connection, we need to make sure we just pass the relative path in the web service URL.
  • The change which needs to be made is as follow:
  • The Changed URL should be: /dswsbobje/qaawsservices/queryasservice.
  • Import the changed swf to new server and the data shows in Info view.
