    Thanks in advance.

  • SAP Business objects mobile on Android - No connections

    Dear All
    I have downloaded the SAP Business objects mobile app on my Android smartphone. The smartphone has a VPN connection to our company network.
    With the IPad I already managed to get a connection to our BO server and I am able to see our mobile reports (Webi+Dashboards).
    But other than on the IPad I am not able to see on the Android a connection to our BO server. I neither see the option to create a new connection. All I see is the 'SAP Analytics Gallery'.
    Is this the correct app or do I need any additional authorisations or any other downloads to be able to get a connection? 
    I hope you can help me.
    Best Regards
    Danya Liebig

    I think you've already logged into the Analytics gallery in your workflow.
    you need to go to the 3 dots/lines > (icon top right hand corner) > settings > application settings > Connections > new connection

  • SAP Business Object Methodology

    Hi Experts,
    I'd like to know which are the methodologies to implement SAP Business Object, excluding SAP BW and includin SAP BW. I know for SAP the ASAP methodology is used, but I don´t know for SAP BO.
    Greetings & regards,

    Hi leonel, that's good. But once again, you need to indentify the following first...
    1. Who are the target audience (i.e. the end-users)?
    2. Who are going to develop the reports using those tools? Is it centralized (by BI developers or IT developers) or self-service (by the end-users themselves)?
    3. What skill set do you have in-house? Do they know know how to use those tools? Do they need training?
    4. Where are the data sources? Are you going to build a reporting data mart? Do you have the in-house resources to do so?
    5. Do you have the in-house resources to build the semantic layer (i.e. the universe which is the heart-and-soul of BusinessObjects)?
    These are just the initial questions. More will come up when you get deeper into the process. Not until you can answer all these questions, you cannot proceed. I also would like to emphasize that, while you can have a general guideline, there is really no cookie-cutter, one-size-fits-all implementation plan. It varies from company to company. You need to sit down with all the stakeholders to come up with a good plan. And once again, you should consider bringing in hire-gun to help you out. It is very important to do it right at the beginning.
    If you are using the BusinessObjects tool, you should join [ASUG|]

    Hello Venkata Ramana Pandi,
    As Manoj Dhyani mention in the above thread, try changing it into CWM format and give it a try.
    Follow the below steps:
    Export the DS datastore in CWM format, select the datastore and enter a XML file name
    Open the Universe Builder (this option will be in BOE Program menu), you have a option in Universe Builder to import XML exported from Data Services/Data Integrator, check if that creates your Universe successfully
    to use Metadata Exchange do the following
    Open Data Services Desginer
    Click on tools Menu -> Metadata Exchange
    In the Metadata Exchange window
    Select Export Data Services metadata to a file
    Select DI CWM as metadata format
    enter location for xml file (C:\temp)
    Select the datastore you want to create Universe for
    Click OK
    Check for file named repo_export.xml in the C:\temp folder or the folder that you specified
    Open Universe Builder and Select
    Data Integrator bridge
    and use the xml file as input to create universe

  • SAP Business Objects Edge 3.0

    Hi Gurus,
    I was downloaded the SAP Business objects Edge 3.0 Trial version from SAP. I am using SAP 4.7 with oracle 9.2 DB... I want to integrate Edge 3.0 with our SAP for reporting purpose.. Please explain how can i configure this and what are the other softwares are required for this. I go throw the guides but i am not getting clear idea.
    Now i just installed the business objects enterprise in one system web console are login correctly.
    But i don't know how to connect my SAP DB with this.
    Please help me.

    you still need the mentioned software packages even if you do not have an SAP BI system. You can  also configure your SAP R/3 system to do the BO authentication. The main difference is that you have to use crystal reports in order to access the data in your SAP system. You cannot report using Web Intelligence (universes) on an SAP R/3 data source. 
    So you have to do the following:
    1) Install the SAP BusinessObjects Edge 3.0 software on host A
    2) Install the Crystal Reports Designer 2008 V0 on host B (HostA and hostB can also be the same computer)
    3) Install the Java Connector 2.1.8 on host A ([\connectors]). You will find more information on this in the installation guide of the integration Kit for SAP solutions.
    3) Install the BOBJ integration Kit for SAP solutions XI 3.0 on host A (Choose the server option in the installation). Please follow the instructions in the installation guide on how to do this.
    4) If hostA and hostB are two different machines then please install also the BOBJ integration Kit for SAP solutions XI 3.0 on host B (Choose the desktop option in the installation) 
    5) Import the transports delivered in the integration KIT for SAP solutions in your SAP R/3 system (Check the installation guide for more information on these steps)
    6) Configure the SAP authentication in your BOBJ Edge system (necessary if you want to logon with your SAP credentials in BOBJ)
    This way you should be able to create reports based on  your SAP R/3 data.

  • Migration of SAP Business Objects BI Platform 4.1 from Windows(OS), SQL Server(DB) to AIX(OS) and Oracle(DB).

    Dear All,
    I have SAP Business Objects BI Platform 4.1  running on window servers and sql server database. We want to migrate this to  AIX and oracle.
    Can you please share what should be the best approach to carry on this migration?

    Hi Mohammed,
    Regarding your Query below is the suggestion:
    Step I: Preparing for moving BOBJ application from Windows to AIX
    There are some tasks that you need to perform:
    To configure the existing deployment
    Perform inventory and cleanup, to ensure that only the required content is moved.
    Run the Repository Diagnostic Tool to detect any inconsistencies between the File Repository and the CMS repository. The upgrade management tool will not run successfully if there are inconsistencies between the File Repository and the CMS repository.
    Identify any content that the upgrade management tool can't upgrade, along with the process required to upgrade that content. There is some content like Voyager Workspaces or Desktop Intelligence documents that require manual intervention before running the upgrade management tool.
    Back up existing repositories, including the system database and the Input and Output File Repository Servers.
    Back up custom web applications, HTML pages, and scripts in your existing deployment.
    To configure the planned BI 4.x deployment
    Setup and configure the Middleware and ODBC connections.
    Ensure that your machines meet the deployment system's requirements, you can find information about the supported platforms in the Platform Availability Matrix (PAM) -> Help and Support -> SAP BusinessObjects Support -> Documentation -> Supported Platform s/PARs -> SAP BusinessObjects BI 4.x
    Step II:
    You can use database backup & FRS backup (Offline) in new environment (AIX) to deploy BOBJ 4.x Version
    Take the help of DBA to move CMS & AUDIT database backup from SQL Server (Windows) to Oracle (AIX)
    Test the Universe,reports, Check the rights
    Step III:
    If you are configured any SSO then make sure that same configuration is deployed in new environment (AIX).
    Test the user SSO in new environment (AIX).
    You can also use Promotion manager to move the contenet from Windows (Business Objects Application) to UNIX (Business Objects Application)
    Only prerequisite is Business Objects Application version should be same.
    You can copy content only 50 Object at a time in One Job
    FRS Offline backup is required.
    Necessary files regarding custom web applications, HTML pages, and scripts in your existing deployment.
    Please refer the below KBA for more details

  • Query on SAP Business Object and Content shipment..

    I know about SAP Business Suite... & SAP Business One... But what is :
    1. SAP Business Object and
    2. Content Shipment
    The definitions on the SAP Release & Maintenance Strategy and other docs on SDN were not too clear for my understanding. I want to know why are they used / where are they applied ? E.g: if you have a SAP BW system.. why would you need SAP BW Content ? where does it fit in the picture and what purpose does it serve...
    (PS: it would be great if someone can share the product / functionality details of their landscape where these systems are used, how does it benefit the business operations and any other purpose of having them... )

    Hi Ashim,
    If your client want it to be done in one database, then the answer is no if you do not have any add-on or SDK codes.  Most difficult part is authorization since I believe what you mean project here is not the same as project center in B1,
    If your client allow more than one database, then the configuration will be easy.

  • Business Objects Dashboard External HTML/JAVA Script Link - User Authentication Depolyment Q

    <p>Hello,</p><p>I have a rather unstructured problem here and am relatively new to Business Objects Enterprise. </p><p>We have users who are authenticated through Business Objects. The login sets their access levels and permissions. In addition to the BO reports, we would also like to link through BO Dashboard a JAVA Script webpage.</p><p>The JAVA Script and Business Object software sits on the same webserver.</p><p><strong>The problem is that through BO Dashboard and also an external URL link we can only pass a static link (i.e. /some directory/some doc.html) and not a dynamic userid with the URL, which changes based on the user (i.e. /some directory/some doc.jsp?UID=user1).</strong></p><p>The solution might be to insert a Business Object API call that can determine the user who is currently logged in? Or, if there is some way around the static html link through Business Objects Dashboard?</p><p>Any ideas or thoughts would be deeply appreciated.</p><p>Thanks,</p><p>Joe</p>

    Are you setting Business Objects up as an external application?
    If so, what parameters are you using to set it up?
    Based on the fact that you're seeing the basic auth dialog, you probably need to specify
    that it's using basic auth -- not GET.
