An Execution Id is a valid user ID that is used to connect to
the Reporting Server, FTP server or web server to run a schedule
task. When an Execution Id is created, changed, or deleted on a
server, it must also be created, changed, or deleted in the Repository
table that stores Execution Id credentials. Similarly, when the
password for an Execution Id is changed on the server, the password
for that Execution Id must also be changed in the Repository tables.
Exceptions are when Execution credentials are Trusted.
- If an Execution Id is required, the Execution
Id password is validated when a schedule is created, and when the
task of an existing schedule is edited. If the task of an existing
schedule is not opened during editing, and the stored password is
no longer correct, the schedule will fail during execution. This
failure is recorded in the schedule job log.
- Execution IDs and passwords cannot be imported or exported through
the Change Management utility. A new Execution ID and password must
be created on the selected system.
- Changing the password of an FTP user applies to all schedules
that use that user ID for that FTP server and schedule owner.
To view a list of Execution Ids in the ReportCaster Development
interface, click the Execution Ids tab. The
following image displays the list of Execution Ids.
From this tab, you can:
- Create a new Execution
- Open an existing
Execution Id to view its properties.
- Delete an Execution
- Refresh the list
of Execution Ids.
Note: When you create, change, or delete an Execution
Id, the Repository tables are updated so that they are synchronized
with the specified server. However, the credentials of the user
ID on the server itself remain unchanged.
Procedure: How to Create a New Execution Id
create a new Execution Id:
user folder in the tree for which you are creating the Execution
Id or select the Execution Id folder to be able to select the user
from within the Execution Id Editor.
On the toolbar
of the Execution Ids tab, click New.
The Execution Id Editor opens. The following image
shows the Execution Id Editor opened when the Execution Id folder
in the tree has been selected.
the following parameters:
Owner List. Select the user by whom the Execution
Id will be owned.
Note: This option is disabled
and displays the owner when a user folder was selected prior to
Execution Id. Type a valid Execution Id.
Server Type. Select the type of server from
the drop-down list. Selections are WebFOCUS Server, FTP, or WEB.
Server Name. From the Server Name drop-down
list, enter or select the name of a Reporting Server with which
the credentials will be associated or enter the FTP or web server
Note: The Reporting Servers are
defined in the ReportCaster configuration.
Password. Type the password for the user ID.
Note that you are not creating this password on the specified server;
you are entering the existing password into the Repository table
that stores Execution Id information.
Confirm Password. Retype the password.
Click OK to
create the Execution Id in the Repository table or click Cancel to
cancel the request.
Procedure: How to Change an Execution Id Password

The Execution Id Editor opens, as shown in the following
the following information:
Password. Enter the password for the Execution

ID on the server that appears in the Server Name field.
Confirm Password. Reenter the password.
Changing the password using ReportCaster does
not change the password on the specified server.
Click OK to
change the Execution Id or password values in the Repository tables.
A message appears confirming that the values have been changed.
Procedure: How to Delete an Execution Id
delete an Execution Id:
Execution Id you want to delete.
A message appears asking for confirmation to delete the selected
the Execution Id is deleted, a scheduled job that requires this
Execution Id on the specified server will not run unless the schedule
is modified to use a valid Execution Id. If you modify the Execution
credentials for a single schedule that specifies the deleted Execution
Id, ReportCaster makes this modification for all schedules that
specify the deleted Execution Id.
