With the BI platform, you can configure an object or instance for output to a destination other than the default output File Repository Server (FRS). When the system runs an object, it stores the output instance on the output FRS by default. The option to choose an extra destination gives you the flexibility to deliver instances across your system or to destinations outside your BI platform.
For example, you can set an object to have its output automatically delivered by e-mail or to a printer for other users.
When you specify a destination other than the default destination, the BI platform generates a distinct name for the output. To generate a file name, you can use a combination of ID, name, or date information.
You can change the destination setting for an object or instance either in the CMC or in the BI Launch Pad. When yjeou specify the destination settings through the CMC, these settings are also available in the default scheduling settings for the BI Launch Pad.
