Create a connection to the WebFOCUS Repository database.
is referring to. Is this an adapter you have to set up?
Admittedly I'm picking a fight above my weight class, so forgive me if I'm asking a super obvious question. I don't see anything labeled "WebFOCUS Repository" in the configured or available adapters when I'm in the Reporting Server Administration console.
Anyone who can provide me some clarification would be greatly appreciated!
Yes you need to configure an adapter and the recommended connection name is WebFOCUS Repository. The adapter connection should also have the Repository as the default database.
Thank you for your help Chuck. I'm still struggling with how to set up this adapter connection, is there some documentation available? I've only set up adapter connections to Oracle databases before so I'm not even sure what category of adapter this needs to be much less what I need to put in the connection parameters.
Here is a link to the adapter administration manual click on the PDF icon under Online documentation. I suggest you work with your administrator that set up WebFOCUS as you will need to know which RDBMS is being used for the WebFOCUS repository.
Well, I looked at this again and have to report 'user error'. The reporting server console by default, only displays the first 50 master files, and I didn't see the tables I wanted, and ended up thinking they weren't there. My bad.
WebFocus 7x, 8x, Win / Linux, any output format
