New Web Configuration Interface for on-premise customers

created: 27.04.2020


Today I am happy to announce the new web interface for openbi and biExport configuration and maintenance!

So far, our on-premise customers had to install the opnebi Configurator Windows client in order to configure server-side parameters of biExport and to monitor the service. A Windows PC and sufficient user rights were needed to do this.

All these tasks are now available in our Web configurator, which is centrally and securly accessible via!


You can now do the configuration and monitoring seamlessly, no matter which operating system you use:

  • Check License usage
  • Check Server Status
  • Monitor Export processes in the Server Console
  • Define Server Settings such as Trace Parameters, Mail Properties, Export Quality etc.
  • Set up Connection Templates to your BO systems for scheduling and Briefing Book creation
  • Maintain Users for the Template Manager

Before you can start, you have to type in the "Hostname" of your biExport / openbi service. The Web configurator will be able to connect, as long as the machine you are connecting from is in the same network as the server, on which the service is installed.

Also enter the "Username" (admin by default) and "Port" (9093 by default).  


After a successfull login you can see the configuration and monitoring options in the menu on the left.

The following screenshots shall give you an overview of the possibilities:

Have fun working with the new Web Configurator!
