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