Events in Business Objects

You can schedule reports based on events.  There are three (3) different types of events:

– Custom
– File
– Schedule

Custom Events: To create custom events you should have BO SDK knowledge. You can use the BOE SDK to raise custom event to create a report. A custom event occurs only when you explicitly click its “Trigger this event” button mostly from the code. To create a custom event Go to the Events management area of the CMC.

File Events: An event can be triggered if the specified file is written in the specified directory. When the file appears, the Event Server triggers an event .

Scheduled Event: This helps in defining event chains. If you want to run report B only if report A was successful use this type of event. To create a schedule-based event Go to the Events management area of the CMC.
