Send data to another BPC cube

Hello!

We need to send data to another cube, but it is needed to do some transformations to the original data, using a dimension that does not exist on the destination model.

We thought on 3 scenarios:

  1. On the source model, use the DESTINATION_APP functionality. Is it possible to call a BADI using this functionality?
  2. On the source model, use a custom logic BADI. Can it send data to another cube?
  3. On the destination model, use a custom logic BADI. Can it real data from another cube?

Which of these scenarios are possible? And which of them, is the best one?

Thanks.

Best regards,

Simone Farinha

    Hi Simone,

    Why using BADI is in all your options?

    I'd suggest considering first options without BADI. In this case since you need to use Dimension that is not in the the target Model, DESTINATION_APP could be the most suitable option.

    Without knowing what kind of transformations you need, as Vadim said, it's hard to tell if you can use it or not.

    • "Using DESTINATION_APP is not enough since based on two dimensions on the source model (company and value field) and a property of a third dimension (material) is necessary to define a dimension on the destination model (group account)."

      Sorry, but not clear! Please explain in details using sample with dimension members etc...!

      "On the source model, use the DESTINATION_APP functionality. Is it possible to call a BADI using this functionality?" sorry, but what is the relation between DESTINATION_APP and badi ????


      "On the source model, use a custom logic BADI. Can it send data to another cube?" - Yes


      "On the destination model, use a custom logic BADI. Can it real data from another cube?" - Yes

    Hello, I did somthing similar using a Data Manager Load Transactional Data from BW Infoprovider UI Process Chain: CPMB/LOAD_INFOPROV_UI.

    Then look for the BPC Cube in the Wizard.

    If the dimension in the Source doesn't exist in the Destination cube, it doesn't matter, just don't Map it in the tranformation file

    For instance if you have:

    Source Dimensions Destination cube Dimensions

    Category Category

    Account Account

    Time Time

    Entity Entity

    Currency Currency

    Version -> Does not exist in destination. (don't map it)

    What BPC will do is Merge Data in Version and reporting by version won't be posible in the new cube.

    NOTE: You have to map BW Technical Dimensions name, you can see them in RSA1

    Hope this helps.

    Regards.
