SRM Business Content

Hi All,
I would like to know the infosource of 0SR_C01 procurement overview(aggregated) cube. while on it shows 0SR_MC01 as a multiprovider for 0SR_C01. But could not find the infosource for the same.
I would also like to know if anyone has the list of content infocubes and their infosources for SRM. Please share it with me.
Thank in Advance

Hi ,
for all business content, you can start here
and bi best practice
Check this link for SRM Business Content information:
New DataSources have been created for NW 2004s BI Content Add-On 2 and SRM 5.0. These are described here, along with their extraction logic.
The following graphic shows the data flow from the DataSources to the DataStore objects
Each DataSource has an extraction structure and a data extractor. Generally, this is an RFC-capable function module.
There are two types of extraction: Specific extraction and generic extraction:
Specific extraction is strongly oriented towards the data model of the BI System and the necessary extract structure. It executes DataSource-specific processing steps.
The logic contained within the generic extraction is implemented centrally and can therefore be reused by the specific extraction modules. The generic extraction deals with access to the SRM database and is similar for each DataSource.
Generic and specific extraction
Extraction logic in detail
Data extraction involves the following six function modules:
InitLoad is called as soon as an initial upload is started in the BI System. In other words, it is executed when data is loaded into the BI System for the first time. The module can restrict the data extraction according to filter criteria that were defined in BI during extraction (for example, extract the data for a particular timeframe). InitLoad packages the data before it is transferred to the BI System.
DeltaLoad is called when a document is modified in the SRM System. The module writes data that has accumulated since the initial loading to a delta queue.
Data Collector
The Collector reads the required data from the database in the source system. For performance reasons, the data is then buffered in system-internal tables. The tables have the same structure as in the database. This saves time and effort, because data conversion is kept to a minimum.
Data Consolidator
The Consolidator groups data that belongs together from a business point of view. The consolidated data is stored in internal tables and is prepared for further processing.
Data Normalizer
The Denormalizer prepares the source data for the BI System. It calculates key figures that are required for the report but are not contained on the database and converts data types in the source system to data types of the BI System. Depending on the BI data model, the system now decides how each row is filled with data.
Data Mapper
During mapping of the data, the system defines which fields of the denormalized data structure are assigned to the fields of the extract structure. In this way, flat and one-dimensional lines are generated from the data.
The following table shows the technical names of the function modules of the individual DataSources:
Hope this helps,

  • SRM-ECC PO Business Content

    We are implementing SRM -EXtended Classic Scenario.
    The PO is created in SRM and a copy is sent back to ECC. Therefore PO is avialable in both the SRM & ECC systems to be pulled into BI. In BI we have serperate content available for Procurement Analysis in ECC(based on LO cockpit) and SRM area. (under 0SRM & 0SCM). The contents /data model look very different.
    Any benefits/pitfalls in using either of the business content for SRM procurement reporting?
    Any ideas anyone

    Can't you have the iView open up another browser, and within the new page/on lauched brower have the SRM iviews based on user role?

  • Business Content for SRM 5.0 in SP9

    Hi All,
    We have BI_CONT release 702 with Level 0005. But when I try to install the transformations or any new objects like DTP, I'm not able to find many of those in Business Contents. Are these objects not yet delivered with the standard content? Do anyone have any official information on this or any OSS Note? Any planned release dates?
    Also any information on existing contnts for SRM 5.0
    Thanks in advance

    But i know from the documentation of SRM 5.0 --> master Guide --->   It has been mentioned as follows
    4) if you have a look at the Master guide for SRM 5.0 ---> there is one seperate section  available --->

  • Installing Business content in SRM

    I am trying to bring data from SRM to BW basically for contract management and vendor evaluation.Someone has already done Transfer Component Hierarchy.But this is all under <b>nodesnotconnected</b>.And most of them dont have text.What can I do to get back the text and datasources are under proper nodes instead of <b>nodesnotconnected</b>.
    2.I have datasources under these nodes TCT-MON-IO,TCT-MON and TCT.All these relate to metadata. Do I have to transfer all these datasources to BW or how should I go about it.

    First you have to install application components and Infoareas and then activate all business content by selecting before and then after. It should take care of your issue.

  • Active transactional datasources not listed in business content collection

    Dear experts,
    for SRM bidding engine i have activated the extractors in SRM through transaction RSA5 and put them on a transport. Replicated them in BW and their they are appearing correctly, activated them and provided infopackages.
    Now when i want to activate Business Content SRM role SAP_BW_SRM_ACT_BE and after grouping look for the transactional datasources, they are not listed in the list of objects (grouped 'before and after', collection 'automatic').
    1.Is this normal and do i need to make the links between datasources and infosouces myself after activating the role?
    2.or does it normally installs the entire flow correctly?
    Also weird - my datasources are BI7.0 and some of my BW SRM content is from older 3.x version, containng infosources and communications structures. Can this be the reason why Business Content grouping does not find the datasources?

    looked at the note but did not provide more info as i already applied what is written in the note.
    This role for bidding engine after I have put it into the collective window, among the other objects it will activate it does not list the datasources of the transactional data, nor the links to the infosources.
    Installing it like this will require me to connect the datasources manually to the dataflow, which i want to avoid.
    Is there a way to make BW connect the transactional datasources of SRM Bidding Engine connect automatically with the business content BW flow of Bidding Engine? this i though would be done by collecting it (before and after), grouping (automatically).

    The building block CRM Lead Analysis describes the all the required activities to analyze the Marketing Lead Analysis data from SAP CRM in SAP Business Information Warehouse.
    The analysis is carried out with the following queries of the InfoCube 0MKTG_C01 CRM - Lead Management (SAP BW Business Content).
    The Lead Management InfoCube contains all the characteristics and data used for the administration of leads. This InfoCube enables you to execute the following standard queries available in SAP BW:
    1.     Channel Analysis: This query is used to determine the best channels by which business partners are contacted in the context of a marketing campaign. Following each marketing campaign, the lead manager can compare the success of a given channel to those of others.
    2.     Efficiency Reporting: This query is used to analyze the efficiency with which leads are qualified. By navigating to the sales organizations and the responsible employees for the leads, it is possible to assess how efficiently lead teams are working and to identify areas for improvement.
    3.     Historical Evaluation: Use to help analyze and compare leads over different intervals (comparison of different quarters or years for example) to see if general characteristics in the processing of leads can be identified for these periods.
    4.     Lost Leads: Provides an overview of the number of lost leads in a particular period and the reasons (implemented as a navigation characteristic) for the loss of the leads. This query is used to analyze the main reasons why leads might be lost, with a view to developing new strategies for overcoming these weaknesses.
    5.     Channel Mgmt.: Top-n Lost Leads (Current Year): In a Channel Manager Portal, this query provides an analysis of the leads lost by a Channel Manager over the past 12 months. Channel Managers can also view the leads lost by their Channel Partners. In a Partner Portal, this query shows the top-n unsuccessful leads distributed by a Channel Manager to a Channel Partner. Partner Manager can see the lost leads of the Partner Employees over the year. Partner Employee can view his lost leads over the year.........

    Thanks Subash Balakrishnan for replying,
    but let me inform you that i already did that as i need to install this object and now the object is showing with green instead of grey,
    Now my problem is that after selecting grouping and collection when i go to infoobject menu under modelling and find out the object 0mat, it shows in green , but as i need to observe the properties of this object like data type , length etc , i select the object 0mat and right click and select display,
    then instead of showing me the object properties screen it gives me the error as mentioned above,

  • Unable to 'set the default source system' to Install Business Content

    Maars here. This is my first post hoping that in future ones I'll also be lending a helping hand.
    I am trying to 'Install Business Content' under the BUSINESS CONTENT section in txn RSA1. I am doing this after 'Transfer Data Sources' in R/3 and I can now see all the data sources (under the application component hierarchy) for the source system. But I am not able to see the Info Objects in the Business Content.
    When I try to set R/3 as the default source system (got this screen after clicking a icon in the standard tool bar), BW is not saving the settings ie., I set the R/3 as the default and then click on OK. If I go back to the same screen again, I find that my settings were NOT saved.
    Could you please help me out?
    Thank you.

    It seems to be a bug in version 3.5.
    Do like this:
    After you open the screen to <i>choose the dafault source system</i>
    Clcik on 3rd button(F6) available in the bottom of the scrreen.
    And then select teh tick mark for required system.
    And then click on Continue button
    You have do this step before you drop the cube to right side of the cube.
    Ok, even after all these steps , if you reopen the screen you would not see Tick mark u have done just before. DONOT WORRY ABT it.
    Drag and drop required cube with dat flow before.
    Now you can see the Transfer rules with selected Source system only in the collected Objects.

  • How to activate the Info object catalog in Business content

      While trying to activate the Info object catalog, I found that some of the info objects under this catalog was earlier activated by some other developer. I brought this catalog (0SALES_CHA01) over to the Business content activation panel ( with only 'necessary object settings ) and all the info objects that also came along  were de-selected since I didn't want to install those again). When I tried to install these I get an error indicating that some of the info object in question are not already active.. and ultimately the catalog doesn’t get activated , although more than half of its infoobjects are already active under the '0CHANOTASSIGNED' node.
    Please let me know whether I can get only the Catalog activated without getting any existing activated info object merged or installing those which are not already activated.

    Hello Arunava,
    Just drag the infoobject catalog as u did earlier to the left in the bus cont installation screen with "only necessary object" option.
    Dont try to deselect any object. Go ahead with the default options and install in background.
    Now you can check for the available objects in the catalog. if you have some objects missing, and available in unassigned node,double click on the newly installed infoobject catalog, select the required objects (which are not yet assigned to this) from the left side and bring them to the right side.
    this will make the unassigned objects assigned to the required catalog.
    Hope it helps..

  • Business content datasource enhancement

    Hi Experts,
    I am new to HR.
    We are implementing HR modules Personnel development and Personnel administration, while I was looking into business content extractors 0HR_PA_0 and OHR_PA_1, I found that there were only few fields in the extract structure but there were many fields in the cube.Do we need to enhance the datasources? how it works?. If anybody did the enhancement to these datasources, please give me the information with examples.

    No, it is no necesary to enhance standard data sources. Those datasources extract, basically employee and date. Most infoobjects in cube are calculated from 0PERSON and 0EMPLOYEE attributes, having in count the date and employed extracted, because most in HR is time dependent.

  • Taking too much time incollecting in business content activation

    Hi all,
    I am collecting business content object for activation. I have selected 0fiAA_cha object,while cllecting in the activation but it is taking too much time and then it asks for source
    system authorisation and then throws error maximum run time exceded. i have selected data flow before there.
    What can be the reason for it.
    Please help..

    Hi ,
    You should also always try and have the latest BI content patch installed but I don't think this is the problem. It seems that there
    are alot of objects to collect. Under 'grouping' you can select the option 'only necessary objects', please check if you can
    use this option to  install the objects that you need from content.

  • Finding fields in R/3 for data extraction VS Business content

    Hi all,
    I am doing my first BW project after my training and I am finding it difficult to locate some fields that should be part of my report.
    The Consultant says Sales Group, Inco terms, Open orders, Account assignment group, Sold to party, ship to party, Payment terms, Document currency and base currency, Complete deliver indicator, Order type and Count of Complete deliveries required should all be in the Order while transmission type and number of transmissions should be in NAST.
    I have gone to R/3 - RSA6 to look at datasources and found 2LIS_01_S260 (Sales order) to have most of the fields but not payment terms, complete delivery indicator, open orders base currency and count of complete deliveries required. Also in Sales document header data, these fileds are not there.
    Is it a case of not understanding the correct name of the fields if they are described in a different manner in R/3 or I have not done the proper thing? Can I just use an infocube in BW business content to get all the required objetcs -(infocube, infosource, datasource).
    Thank you

    Finding the correct Infoobject and it's mapped field is a job of BIW consultant. But the problem is how to find them and how to frind respective R/3  field and it's table. You will be familar with them as your experience increases.
    So you need to list of fields you require and then find out the Datasource/s which can give these fields by going through the Business content help or using LBWE Tcode in R/3.
    The datasource you mentioned is obsolate one. i.e 2LIS_01_S260  .
    You better to go wtih new DSes like 2LIS_11_VAITM,2LIS_11_V_ITM.
    If allmost all fields are avialable in a DS , then you can check the possibility of enhancing the DS for remaining Fields.
