Overrides overview

Overrides Overview

  • Updating database connections (overrides) in XI 3.1 are job specific, in BI 4.0 are global.

    • In 4.0, Lifecycle management scans for all Crystal Reports, OLAP and Universe Connections and QaaWS URLs in the origin system.

    • Scan information can be updated with values for destination.

    • When a report connection is promoted, database connection information is automatically promoted.

    • Overrides can be from one or many origins to one or many destinations.


Overrides how to configure overrides

Overrides – How to configure overrides?

  • Specify Origin system (Administration Options > Manage Systems)

  • Scan the Origin system (Administration Options > Override Settings)

  • Mark desired objects as active.

  • Promote the overrides to one or multiple destinations.

  • In destination, mark desired objects as active and edit database connections.

  • When a promotion job is executed, overrides of objects in the job are applied automatically.
