    As the creator of the report:

     

    Create a copy of the report you wish to share.

    Open the copy.

    Remove any filters which may be unique to your instance.

    Note these specifics as the recipient may need to put them in place using similar attributes for the report to function as intended.

     

    Purge ALL data from the report (queries).

    Save the report with the data purged.

     

    Refresh the Mystuff Directory and reopen the saved and purged report.

    Ensure there is no data present.

     

    Modify the URL from (in example - Not an active link):

    https://bi.ondemand.com/show/1dwrTEtBn9ZoiZmuqFB8B4n63W?backbutton=y

     

    To(in example - Not an active link):

    https://bi.ondemand.com/v2/items/1dwrTEtBn9ZoiZmuqFB8B4n63W/file

     

    This section: 1dwrTEtnx9ZoiZmuqFB8B4n63W is the doc id and will vary.

     

    This will allow you to download the .wid file (the report).

     

    This may now be shared with others with access to Jive's BIOD.

     

    It will not work anywhere else as all references are specific to the Jive Analytics Universe.
