Error on saving migrated report in CR4Ent

HI Experts,

Firstly, I am not sure whether this feature is yet available in the tool; however, I faced no issues while migration, only while saving.


Retain ID and CUID the CR2011 reports developed on Oracle OCI connections while migrating them on relational connection (within BI4 repository).


Open CR4Ent

Login to BI4

Open CR2011 report

Set data source location

Review mapping

Run the report

Save the report to overwrite original report


So basically the question is:

Can we overwrite a CR2011/2013 report within BI4.x with CR4Ent report?

If yes, please suggest the workflow

If no, how to suffice the requirement above.

    3.manually remove/delete the CR 2011 format CR reports from the repository folders,

    once it is made sure that they are not required by an BO user.

    • IDs will not be retained as the format of the report is changing. With the introduction of CR4Ent, the developer team at SAP has provided an upgrade / migration option so that the existing CR reports(created using the desktop version of the tool) could benefit from the features & enhancements that the CR4Ent tool will receive in the future.

      They have parallely maintained the desktop version of the tool clearly helping the customer-base maintain their existing set of reports while slowly transitioning to the new version of the tool for future development. I believe, thats how a change is slowly introduced and they have a clear roadmap about how to go about it.
