How-to document / instructions in using a DataSource as source for Open Hub

Hi experts,

Scenario: I'm trying to create an Open Hub Destination (7.0) using a DataSource as the source (no pun intended). I have successfully created an Open Hub Destination using a DSO as the source.

Whenever I try to create the Transformation for the Open Hub Destination that uses the DataSource, I get an error stating: "Cannot connect DataSource to an open hub destination." I found Note 1077229, and supposedly I need to upgrade to BI Patch 16 or SAPKW70016. I have also verified that the DataSource is not a 3.x one, and I have been able to create a DTP.


1. Have you received the same error when trying to create a Transformation for an Open Hub destination using a DataSource? If so, do you know what the resolution for this issue is?

2. Can you point me to a How-to document / SDN thread that explains how to use DataSources with the Open Hub Service? (I have not been able to find any How-tos for this)

Thank you,

      Thank you for your response, however, you have pointed me to the Help entry for Open Hub/InfoSpokes. That does not address my specific question.

      I need a how-to document on using the new feature of the Open Hub in 7.0, that allows to create an Open Hub destination using a DataSource as a source (not using InfoSpokes, and not using DSOs, or any other thing, I need to test the DataSource option).

      If you have anything that you think might be helpful, please send to my personal e-mail

      Thanks a lot for taking the time to follow up
