BI4 - BW refresh users and aliases automatically

Hello,

We have a BI4.2 system connected with 2 SAP BW 7.3 ABAP systems, using STS. we defined a role on each BW system mapped with BI4 to refresh users and aliases. The problem is in the SAP authentification, I can only schedule the refresh for one of the BW system, the other one has to be refreshed manually. Is it possible to develop a program using SDK or RESTFULL to refresh the 2 system automatically ?

Thanks.

    The schedule should be refreshing all the systems, we have many customers with multiple BW and it's a normal practice to refresh them all. What patches do you have installed on 4.2 we have a refreshing issue on some early versions of SP3

    • Since patch 3 we haven't had any complaints with refreshing. Other issue could be connectivity related, ot if you are using the registry key for simple naming it can cause problems if not implemented correctly. The CMS would need to be traced to verify if not using that key.
