Data Bridge Import From BW Launched by PCM Console


We have a Data Bridge control file (CTF) used to import activity driver values from BW via a SAP NW BI RFC (Specific Server) connection. This works correctly when executed from the Data Bridge application. However, when the same CTF is executed from the PCM Console, the console file executes successfully, and indicates the ctf has also executed successfully (listing the specification run files and outputing a status of complete), but no data is transferred into PCM. Both Data Bridge and PCM Console are being executed from the same machine in these scenarios.

It seems to me the issue might be in the PCM Console accessing the SAP NW BI RFC connection set up in Data Bridge. Is there an issue with the PCM Console having access to the same connections as data bridge? Is there a way to set up the appropriate connection specifically for the PCM Console?

Using PCM10 SP6 P2 and BW7.3 SP8


PS. We understand there are alternatives such as FIM and Open Hub/Data Loader, but would like to limit this discussion to Data Bridge & the PCM Console if possible.

    Do you execute the console command with the same user as if you run databridge?

      Yes, all aspects of the execution are the same with the exception of the ctf file being executed through the console or databridge. User, Model, Server, Source and Execution location are all the same.

      Our current work-around is for the batch file that executes the PCM Console to also launch Data Bridge passing in the CTF path and then have the user log in and run the CTF manually (using the same user/password as the rest of the console commands in the batch). This works, but is cumbersome.

      Thanks for your help Jef.
