Sample Auditing Universe and Reports for SAP BusinessObjects 4.0
In SAP BusinessObjects 4.0 the auditing database schema was improved.
The attached sample auditing universe and reports are intended to help you develop custom auditing reports
for SAP Business Objects 4.0.
Note: The reports and the universe are not supported by SAP. They are provided as-is, and are intended to be a
starting point in the development of your own custom auditing universe and reports

The attached zip file contains:
1. Seven sample auditing .UNX universes one for each of the following database types:
SAP HANA
MS SQL
Sybase
Sybase SQLAnywhere
IBM DB2
Oracle
MySQL
2. Thirty-eight sample Crystal Reports using the universe. See beneath deployment instructions for a
list of folders, reports and descriptions.

First ensure that auditing is enabled and is properly configured on your system. Ensure that auditing events
are written to your system auditing data store.
Please refer to SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise 4.0 Administrator Guide for description of auditing
configuration.

To deploy Auditing reports and universe please follow the steps:
1. In SAP BusinessObjects 4.0 Information Design Tool create a new project and retrieve the sample
auditing universe into it. This will result in a 3 objects appearing in your project: a connection, (.cnx or
.cns), a data layer, (.dfx), and a business layer (.blx)
2. In Information Design Tool create a connection (.cnx or .cns) to your auditing data store (for SAP
Business Objects 4.0. Then change the connection of the dfx to use the one you have created.
3. In Information Design Tool check integrity of the universe before re-publishing. Please ignore all
cardinality and unlinked table warnings.
4. In Information Design Tool publish the modified universe to your SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise
system. If you are using a .cnx, you will be prompted to create and switch to a secure, published
.cns connection. You can publish your .cnx connection to your SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise
repository to generate a secured .cns.
5. In Crystal Reports Design for 4.0 open the sample auditing reports, click the Data menu and Set
Data Source Location to point the report to the auditing universe published in the previous step.
Publish the sample reports to the SAP Business Objects Enterprise.
