Data Source "DS_1" not initialized error when publishing application on BI platform

Hi There,

I am very new to design studio. I am using

- SAP BO 4.2 SP03

- Design studio 1.6

- Design studio add on for BI platform version SP03 for DESIGN STUDIO BIP ADD ON 1.6

- Data source for application : e-Fashion Universe

I have build a very simple cross tab with 4 columns. I have used timer function to refresh the application every 1 minute. When I Run this design studio application locally it works fine and takes 5 seconds to refresh. Now after testing this locally I am publishing this application on BI platform but when I open it there it gives me "Cannot load infoprovider "DSL/....." and "Data Source "DS_1" not initialized.". I have attached screenshot for your reference.

I have two questions

  1. why application runs as expected when locally and why I get error on the platform.
  2. if I were to change timer to refresh application every 2 seconds can I reduce refresh time from 5 seconds to near to real time. I know this works fine with Hanna but we want to use universe as we dont have hanna .

Thanks a lot in advance.

    Ensure that the below services are together in one server in CMC : DSL, Analysis and Adaptive connectivity server. This resolved the problem for us.

    Happy - a couple of things:

    1. Please follow SAP Note to troubleshoot this error.
    2. How did you publish to the BI Platform?
    3. Could you try creating this directly from the BI Platform?
    4. Is your Design Studio BI platform installed?
    5. If you are on BI4.2 SP03, SAP recommends updating to patch 4 if you haven't already done that.

    • Hi- since this is Happy's question, I recommend you open a new thread and share which version / SP of Design Studio / Lumira Designer you are using and which version / SP of the BI platform you are using. Thank you
