SAP BusinessObjects – BI Platform – Java SDK – Query User Groups along with Sub Groups and Users

If you are an SAP BusinessObjects BI Platform Administrator and looking to find out Empty Groups, or List Sub Groups and Users inside groups, following are the queries which will help in that aspect.

To list the top level Groups, which are at the root level in Group Hierarchy:

SELECT si_id, si_cuid, si_name, si_group_members, si_subgroups, si_usergroups FROM CI_SYSTEMOBJECTS WHERE SI_KIND='UserGroup' and si_usergroups is null

To list the Groups where there are no users and no subgroups, use the following query:

SELECT si_id, si_cuid, si_name, si_group_members, si_subgroups, si_usergroups FROM CI_SYSTEMOBJECTS WHERE SI_KIND='UserGroup' and si_subgroups is null and si_group_members is null

To list the Groups where there are no subgroups, use the following query:

SELECT si_id, si_cuid, si_name, si_group_members, si_subgroups, si_usergroups FROM CI_SYSTEMOBJECTS WHERE SI_KIND='UserGroup' and si_subgroups is null

To list the Groups where there are no users, use the following query:

SELECT si_id, si_cuid, si_name, si_group_members, si_subgroups, si_usergroups FROM CI_SYSTEMOBJECTS WHERE SI_KIND='UserGroup' and si_group_members is null

And here is JAVA SDK code sample, which you can refer and fine tune according to your needs. It will recursively scans through all the groups and its subgroups to print the number users and subgroups inside each.

}

Hope you find it useful.
