Summary


This article describes the various methods available for processing a document in a Burst.


Multi-Pass Bursting

Multi-pass bursting occurs when a document is refreshed multiple times based on a key (bursting) parameter. The result is multiple versions of the report where each version contains different data. Parameter values for this bursting method are controlled by either a Document Source or Parameter Source.

Single-Pass Bursting

Single-pass bursting (also known as filtering) occurs when a document is refreshed once then filtered on a key variable. The result is multiple versions of the report where each version contains different data.

Crystal Report Requirements

Crystal Report filtering is not supported by the SAP BusinessObjects platform. InfoBurst requires and uses the BusinessObjects Client Tools to achieve filtering.

An InfoBurst-specific parameter must be added to the report to enable filtering.
  • Add a custom parameter field labeled #IB# with an identifier for the filter variable (example = #IB#City)

  • Add a record selection equating the #IB# parameter to the filter variable (example = {eFashion_query.City} = {?#IB#City})

Combo-Pass

Combo-pass bursting is a combination of multi-pass and single-pass bursting.
  • Example: Multi-pass for parameter STATE then filter the result for CITY.

Simple Refresh

Refresh and delivery the contents of a document. No bursting.
