A couple of weeks ago I posted a blog about changing Bex Broadcaster variables. Now this post is an follow-up on that article which describes how to automate the process of changing Bex Broadcaster variables and sending the reports to the users.
One way of automating this process is by creating a process chain. Leaving aside that this is probably the most easiest activity for a SAP BI consultant, creating a process chain with a Bex Broadcaster step could be challenging. Why? Because the default program which SAP advises to use for sending Bex Broadcaster workbooks, sets the monitor of the process chain directly to green. This results in multiple workbooks being calculated at the same time, which then leads to a decrease in performance on our Precalculation servers.
