CMS Recurring instance

CMS Recurring instance


I have few reports which users have created recurrence instances. If I update any existing report which has a recurrence instance do I have to recreate the recurrence instance all the time. I have report which is using SQL command also I have report with procedure. I am using BO XI R3 and CR XI R2.

Any help will be appreciated.


RE: CMS Recurring instance

Hi BB,

Yes, to the best of my knowledge and by experience, whenever you configure recurrence, it essentially takes a snapshot of the report [an instance] and that is what gets scheduled.

If you modify the report, it does not get applied to the previously scheduled instances.

It is a pain, but makes sense if you think about it.


RE: CMS Recurring instance

In newer versions of BO/CR, you only have to reschedule if you make any changes to the parameter definitions. Any other changes will be automatically updated in the schedule.

Hi Hilfy,
Do you know what version(s) supports not needing to reschedule modified reports?

RE: CMS Recurring instance

I know it's in 4.1, from at least SP3 (maybe earlier) and possibly in the later SPs of 4.0, but I haven't tested those.
