How do I enable universes as a data source type in Crystal Reports for Enterprise

0 Kudos

We are trying to setup a Crystal Server so that we can move all our old Crystal Reports to a central location and from what I have read, we need to setup a universe and have our reports connect to that universe.

We've used the Universe Design Tool and create a simple universe and managed to export it to the Crystal Server.

When I open up Crystal Reports for Enterprise, I'm trying to create a Data Source Connection to that universe.

However, the only option available to me is Relational Connection.

How do I get the dropdown to display Universes as an option?

Hi David,

CR for Ent does not support universes created using the Universe Design Tool (.unv universes).

You'd need to convert the .unv universe to .unx universe using the new Information Design Tool.

Or you could continue consuming the old .unv universes in the legacy Crystal Reports tool, however, it is highly recommended that you move to .unx.
