Hide and Unhide WebAnalysis reports

There is an option in Hyperion Workspace which allows us to hide an object (Webanalysis reports, FR reports,…..)

For those who doesn’t know………

You can hide a report by following the below given steps

  • Right Click on the report you want to hide.
  • Go to Properties.
  • Go to Advanced tab.
  • Put a check on Hidden File.
This will change the value of column BROWSABLE (V8_CONTAINER – table) to 0 from 1 

Now what if you want to Unhide the hidden file

The problem after hiding a file is…..(yes you guessed it correctly) it’ll not be available even for the Administrators…

Go to View -> Show Hidden, you can then view the hidden files.
