Can I change bip:AUTHOR on a saved BI report?

Received Response


Is it possible to change the bip:AUTHOR value on a saved BI report?

Content (required):

I want to make some reports public that I've exported to a .CATALOG file.

However, when the reports are imported, if I look at the properties for the imported reports, the bip:AUTHOR (in yellow) is my username, while the username of the user importing the report appears in the path as expected (in green).

Example screenshot:

Is there any way for me to change the bip:AUTHOR value for the reports contained in the .CATALOG file, so that users who import the .CATALOG reports don't see my name as the author?

Howdy, Stranger!
