Recycle Bin accordion for the user is created in BI Launchpad only after the user has deleted something

Recycle Bin accordion for the user is created in BI Launchpad only after the user has deleted something

  • The ‘Recycle Bin’ is not visible under documents in BI Launchpad for the users.
  • The behavior is same for default enterprise administrator.
  • The behavior is consistent for administrators and non-administrator users.
  • The Recycle Bin accordion is visible for the user after the user deletes something atleast once.

Environment

  • SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence Platform (BI) 4.2

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Log in to Central Management Console (CMC)
  2. Navigate to Users and Groups >> Click on Manage >> New >> New User
  3. Once the New User is created, log in to BI Launchpad as this User.
  4. Access the Documents tab
  5. Note that there is no Recycle Bin accordion present.
  6. Now, delete any document from BI Launchpad.
  7. Logoff from BI Launchpad and log in again.
  8. Access the Documents tab and note that the Recycle Bin accordion should now be visible.
  9. Repeat the above workflow using a New User that is part of the Administrator’s User Group. Notice the same behavior.

Cause

  • The recycle bin accordion appear under document tab in BI Launchpad for a user ONLY when a user has deleted something at least once.
  • This is because, after a user has deleted an object at least once, the SI_RECYCLEBIN_FOLDER property gets updated for the user with unique SI_ID for every user.

Resolution

  • This behavior is by design.
  • The user will be able to view the Recycle Bin accordian in his BI Launchpad, only if he has deleted an object atleast once.
  • This behvaior is consistent across all the users in BI irrespective they are administrators or non-administrators.
