SAP BI Report (Version Netweaver 2004s / BW 7.0) in einem Nicht-SAP-Portal


I would like to present a SAP Bi Report (Version Netweaver 2004s / BW 7.0) in a non-SAP-Portal (i.e.: Microsoft Sharepoint).

What I am able to do: I can define within the non-SAP-portal a link, from where a new window opens and displays the report.

What is not working: displaying the reports in a webpart within the portal (webpart is equal to the iView in the SAP Portal) in the way that to the left and top still parts of the portal control are visible. The following is happening:

The Logon comes as usual, but afterwards the rendering of the report results in an endless loop (query and WAD Template, i tried both) and shows nothing.

It seems to me that the rendering machine of the SAP BI (which is in 7.0 the portal) tries to take the whole window and kills itself by doing so.

You can recreate the same phenomenon easily by constructing a simple HTML-page, on which the URL of the WAD template in a frame is displayed. It happens the same, so its not a sharepoint-problem.

On a BW3.5 the problem does not occur. Here I can without a problem display a report URL in a Sharepoint-Webpart. The report is rendered here via the WAS and not the portal.

If there is a solution to that problem, then maybe there is a switch to be set during generation of the template, so the template is only part of a window.

Maybe this switch is to be set in the URL, but somehow the rendering machine has to now.

I hope I was able to formulate my problem and would appreciate any help.
