Downloading a rpd from OAC Thin Client Modeller

The web modeller or Thin Client Modeller was introduced with BICS and OAC respectively, to allow a more agile metadata modelling. The thin Client modeller does not provide the same level of modelling functionality compared to the “classic” .rpd metadata model. Additionally, with the current release of OAC only one modelling approach is supported. Thus, only the thin client model or the classical model can be deployed as metadata at a time.

Hence, the might be a scenario for switching from the thin client modeller (web modeller) to the classic .rpd model to support more complex metadata modelling.

A .rpd file can be generated from OAC when downloading a Snapshot and extracting the .bar file. The .bar file can be downloaded from the Snapshots area of the OAC Console:

When clicking on a option menu right to the Snapshots, the Console allows  to download the snapshot as .bar file. Once the .bar file is downloaded (after assining a password to protect the downloaded file), the file can be opened with a Archive Tool such as 7z.

The .rpd data model can be opened like any other classical metadata model using the BI Administration Tool. This will contain system generated Objects and Names:
