Hide BI Report from Search

Why is it Useful?

CMiC has added a flag which allows you to hide BI reports you don't want consumers searching for if they don't have access to Dashboard Builder or Query Builder. This feature is useful because it allows you to keep users from searching for certain BI reports, unless they open Query Builder or Dashboard Builder. Reports could include those that are still being developed, deprecated reports, and drill-down destination reports.

NOTE: This feature was released in Patch 17-2HF.

How Does it Work?

A new checkbox appears in the BI Report settings which is called 'Searchable in Builders Only'.

Pop-up window launched from Dashboard Settings icon in Dashboard Runtime Controls toolbar

In BI Dashboard Builder, click the Ellipses icon () on the dashboard to view the Dashboard Runtime Controls toolbar. Once the complete toolbar is displayed, click on the Dashboard Settings icon () to launch a pop-up window where the 'Searchable in Builders Only' checkbox is located.

When this setting is checked, the dashboard is searchable in Dashboard/Query Builder only. It is not searchable in the Analytics canvas.
