I'm trying to show the same report in 2 (or more) different domains but do not want to copy the .fex to the other location(s) [for ease of future maintenance]. Is there a way to link to a single copy of the .fex from multiple domains? I tried looking in the documentation but can't seem to find anything that talks about this.
We have heard this request before and we have it on our wish list for next year's release. Unfortunately, it can't be done right now.
Try to use one Domain instead of two to cut down on duplicated reports and consider features like Role Tree in BI Dashboard to control which files each user sees, even though the users may have access to the same domain. Also, many times you can use data security so that each user runs the same report but sees different rows on it. See WF Security Guide, 521, MR Tips and Techniques for more info
Thanks for the info (and hope for a solution in the future...).
Hi Jim -
There is a way to share fexs among domains. If you put the fex you want to share on the server, under ibi\apps\dirname, (instead of inside the MRE domain), you can then reference it from another fex inside an MRE domain with a -INCLUDE statement.
TABLE FILE WHATEVER
Hope this helps
Thanks. I tried it and finally got it to work - I needed to get any parameters for the .fex prior to the "-INCLUDE". This will be a big help!
