Connecting SAP WEBI 4.2 Client to HANA 1.0 SPS 12 in AWS

219 Views Last edit Mar 05, 2017 at 04:55 AM 5 rev

Hello Experts,

We are running SAP HANA 1.0 SPS 12 within AWS. I am mandated to find a way to connect to our AWS hosted HANA instance using BI client tools.

I have installed the SAP WEBI 4.2 client tools and followed other blog posts to try to connect the client to my HANA instance. I would like to know if I need to install full blown BOBJ (including CMC, Web tier, etc) just in order to use SAP WEBI client to connect to the HANA instance or can I just make a HANA connection without installaing the BOBJ platform?

I am able to use IDT to make a a relational connection which allows me to see my HANA instance as seen in the attached screen shot.

However, now when I use SAP WEBI and try to connect to my HANA instance using the option SAP HANA, I am not able to make the connection. It looks like I need to authenticate to a BOBJ instance and this is what I am trying to understand. If I use my public elastic IP or hostname in the System field the connection fails.

What am I missing in my understanding?
