ParameterMandatory?Description
-h(error)Print help and exit.
-v(error)Print extractor version information an exit
-r "XI | XIV"(tick)

Determines the SAP BusinessObjects runtime that will be used to complete the extraction. Choose one of the following:

XI

SAP BusinessObjects runtime for:

  • BusinessObjects XI
  • BusinessObjects XI R2
  • BusinessObjects XI 3.0
  • BusinessObjects XI 3.1
XIV

SAP BusinessObjects runtime for:

  • SAP Business Intelligence BusinessObjects 4.0
  • SAP Business Intelligence BusinessObjects 4.1
--host "MyHost: <port>"(tick)Determines the host name and port number of your SAP BusinessObjects instance (by default SAP BusinessObjects runs on port 6400).
--u "<user_name>"(error)Allows you to specify the user you wish to connect to the SAP BusinessObjects instance with. This parameter is optional and if omitted, the user Administrator will be used.

-p "<password>"

(tick)Allows you to specify the password for the user you are connecting to the SAP BusinessObjects instance with.

-a "<authentication>"

(error)Determines the authentication level you will use to connect to the SAP BusinessObjects instance with. This parameter is optional and if omitted, Enterprise authentication will be used.

--Lov "true | false"

(error)Allows you to specify if you would like the LOV (List Of Values) data to be extracted with the Universes. This parameter is optional and if omitted, the option is set to false.
-d "true | false"
(error)

When set to true, the user specified in the --u parameter must have sufficient rights to connect to the Desktop Intelligence module and view objects in the Business Objects Central Management Console (CMC) - this will then allow the extraction of both SAP BusinessObjects reports (*.rep) and Universes (*.unv).

This option is only relevant for those extracting SAP BusinessObjects XI, XI R2, XI 3.0 and XI 3.1. When extracting SAP Business Intelligence BusinessObjects 4.0 or 4.1, the option has no effect because the Desktop Intelligence module no longer exists in these more recent versions of SAP BusinessObjects.

This parameter is optional and if omitted, the option is set to false.

-o "<path_to_output_folder>"(tick)Determines the location you would like to output the extraction data to.

-i "<path_to_input_folder>"

(tick)Determines the location of the .unv and .rep (BusinessObjects XI, XI R2, XI 3.0 and XI 3.1 only) files that you would like to extract.
-s "true | false"(error)

[--singleMode] To be used when extracting very large Universes - this will extract This option forces the extractor to open a separate session of the SAP BusinessObjects runtime for each Universe in the input folder one by one. A (defined by the -i option). By default, all universes are extracted in a single session. This option can be useful, when extraction of a very large universe fails because of limits in the SAP BusinessObjects runtime. A small reduction in performance is to be expected when using this option.

This parameter is optional and if omitted, the option is set to false.
