BW Near Line Storage (NLS) data in Business Objects

Hello Experts,

We are facing difficulty retrieving/reading data from BW Near-Line Storage. Currently, we have a universe based on Multiprovider (ZFC_M11). The MP is combining data from two separate Infoproviders (ZFC_CA01 & ZFC_A01) where ZFC_CA01 is the NLS infoprovider .

When trying to run a Business Objects report based on this universe, we only see data from ZFC_A01 and nothing from the NLS infoprovider i.e. ZFC_CA01. We have ensured that the MP settings option "Read Data from Near-Line Storage" is checked and turned on (as displayed in the screenshot attached) but that does not seem to make any difference.

Is there a step that perhaps I'm missing ? Does retrieving data from NLS requires a different approach ?

I would appreciate any help on this.

if i am not wrong then you will not get data in webi report on top of universe if NLS is enabled. NLS based solution only worked with BEx queries->BICC->Webi report.
