1. What is a universe? A universe is a semantic layer which allows a designer to provide a meaningful interface for reporters to build reports and other queries against.2. Analysis in business objects?Business Objects is a very good tool for analysis with drilling being particularly useful3. Who launches the supervisor product in BO for the first time?Whoever is responsible for the initial repository setup and domain and user creation4. How can you check the universe?Serveral ways - one is to run reports against it and compare them to the source data. At a higher level, an integrity check will allow you to check that you have no isolated joins for example. Watch out for chasm and fan traps though - only good data knowledge will help you pick these out.5. What are universe parameters?Universe parameters are settings that help the universe translate queries into SQL statements. As of version 6, there are more settings at a universe level that were traditionally held in the prm file, which was at an RDBMS level6. Types of universes in business objects?"Normal", linked and derived7. What is security domain in BO?The security domain is the part of the repository that governs all access rights to universes, documents and functionality for each user as well as the connections created8. Where will you find the address of repository in BO?The repository is a database, not a filestore. As such, it will be in the DSN of the ODBC connection that has been set up. Your administrator will be able to advise on its location.9. What is broad cast agent?BCA is a scheduling tool for automatic refresh and distribution of BO reports.10. In BO 4.1 version what is the alternative name for broadcast agent?Document Agent Server11. What services the broadcast agent offers on the server side?Check the BO technical documentation - your question isn't clear enough and indeed the answer can vary by BO version12. How can you access your repository with different user profiles?It depends. Supervisors (General Supervisors, Supervisors and Supervisor-Designers) can access it directly, other users can publish and retrieve reports and universes depending upon the privileges granted to them by supervisors13. How many built-in objects are created in BO repository?Lots - and these change from version to version. Be careful with what you mean by objects though - are you talking about tables and columns?14. What are alerters in BO?Alerters are like a more powerful version of conditional formatting in Excel - have a play with that and you will understand the concept of alerters16. What is batch processing in BO?The same as anywhere else - automated processing of work17. How can you first report in BO by using broadcast agent?You can't; you build a report, then publish it to broadcast agent18. Can we take report on Excel in BO?Yes - either Edit -> Copy All and paste it or from v6 onwards, you can save as Excel
