Import interface: [Business Intelligence] BI Report (Relational Source, Expression Parsing, Report Structure) via DXP File from TIBCO Spotfire Analyst (DXP Format) (File)
Import bridge: 'TibcoSpotfireDocument' 10.0.1

This bridge imports a Tibco Spotfire Analysis Document dxp file.

Known limitations:
The dxp format may not always contain the precise database connection type for each database connection. If some database connection(s) are just defined as generic ODBC for example, their database specific SQL query may not be parsed successfully. Please refer to the Miscellaneous parameter to specify the connection type explicitly for each connection.


Bridge Parameters
