triggering process chain from Dashboard


We have a process chain in BW system.

It runs twice a day to load data from ECC to BW system.

It updates the DSO, over the DSO we have a BEx report and we have WEBI report over BEx and we have a dashboard upon this WEBI report (Query as web service).

Now business wants to have a button in the Dashboard and when they click it the Process chain must run. This is required for them to view the latest data when ever they want.

Is there any way to achieve this?

    In this scenario, you want BO dashboard to write back to back end in order to initiate the process chain which does not look possible to me.

    As the loading is already running twice a day, you can simply put a Refresh button and map them to the required connections on dashboard.

    Whenever user wish, he can press it and can get refreshed data.


    You can also put a Push button or drop down box; something like "Want refreshed data: Yes or No".

    And you can use the output to trigger the Refresh of QAAWS connection.

    Hope it makes sense.
