    Visual Composer is delivered and installed as an integral part of the EP usage type that is part of SAP NetWeaver 2004s SP Stack 08 and higher.


    The following hardware and software are required for installing SAP NetWeaver VisualComposer:

    1. NetWeaver 2004s, SP Stack 11

    2. EP usage type, installed as part of this NetWeaver installation

    3. Sun Java JDK, version 1.4.2 and above, installed on the same NetWeaver server

    Before you log on to and work with Visual Composer Storyboard, you should check that your Visual Composer client machine meets the following software requirements:

    1. Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0 SP1 or higher

    2. Microsoft XML Parser 4.0

    3. Adobe SVG Viewer 3.0 or higher (downloadable from

    4. Adobe (formerly Macromedia) Flash plug-in, for viewing models deployed to the Flex environment

    Post Installation

    1. Assigning Authorizations

    Assign the persons configuring Visual Composer Super Administrator roles and ensurethat they have the required permissions to all back-end systems that must be accessed.

    2. Defining Portal Systems and Aliases

    In the portal, be sure that you have created each system required for application modeling,and assigned it a system alias accordingly.For information about creating systems and aliases, see the Portal Administration Guide on SAP Help Portal at ? Documentation ? SAP NetWeaver ? SAP NetWeaver 2004s ? SAP Library ? SAP NetWeaver Library? SAP NetWeaver by Key

    Capability ? People Integration by Key Capability ? Portal ? Portal Administration Guide ? System Administration ? System Configuration ? System Landscape ?Creating Systems.

    Map users with VC Role to a user with read permissions to the required back-end system.

    3.Configuring Permissions


    During installation, a predefined role – the VC Role – is deployed in the portal as part of the initial Visual Composer content. This role has all the necessary permissions to allow a user to perform modeling tasks while working with Visual Composer Storyboard, such as create, develop, manage and deploy models to the portal. The role includes full permissions for the Visual Composer folder in the portal. Additionally, each user should be assigned Read permissions in order to access data services located on the back-end systems accessed through the portal.

    Creating Reports BW using VC

    for accessing BW 3.5 , you need to create one BW SYSTEM in portal. if the system is working properly you will get that system under FIND DATA in VC.from there you can select your query by entering the queryname or you can select query by navigating through your infoarea->infocube-query.

    for creating report using VC

    1. create one new model.

    2. drag one new package, inside package drag one page, inside page drag one iview from COMPOSE to story board

    3. drag the query to story board

    4. create one start point for input of the query.

    5. from output of query u can create table(Add Table view) or chart(Add Chart)
