Abstract: This presentation will address two critical tasks in a Hyperion installation; automation of the processes to backup Hyperion Application "Artifacts" and Essbase databases. Seed Hyperion utilities, in conjunction with standard shell scripting and scheduling tools can be used to automate these processes in any environment. In addition, these techniques can be used to automate any Essbase command line operation using "MaxL" the multidimensional database access language for Hyperion Essbase OLAP Server.

Objective 1: Automation of Hyperion Planning Essbase database backups.

Objective 2: Automation of Hyperion Lifecycle Management (LCM) backups.

Objective 3: UNIX/Linux shell scripting techniques for automating any Essbase MaxL statements.
