SAC Stories using Live Connections change connection / target system

Hi experts,

Is it possible to redirect an SAC story to another system?

For example: you have a new version of your story pointing at test data and after validation you need it to point at production data, using for example a BW live connection. Or you want to deploy it from your test SAC tenant to your prod one.

Currently, if I am not wrong, if you change the data model in one widget, you have to recreate it again.

This functionality exists in BI Platform.

Anything planned in the roadmap?

    Hi Inigo,

    Great question! There is a whitepaper available that should answer all of your questions:

    A short summary: yes, changing the model in a story forces you to re-create the widgets depending on that model. Changing the connection in a model is an option but not really feasible because it will impact all stories based on that model.

    The best option is to have multiple tenants and use the export/import or content network option to deploy changes to production.

    Hope this helps!

    Kind regards,

    Thanks for the right answer, Martijn.

    Actually it is an old Business Objects Cloud documentation :-).

    I was able to test it (it is also possible to create nother data model for the same BW query for testing porpouses) and it has worked fine for BW live connections.
