    Hi Former Member,

    Yes, you can. The integration is minimal for now but you can use the typical URL object in BI Lauchpad and use the new feature URL API in SAP Analytics Cloud documented in: SAP Analytics Cloud URL API Developer Guide

    Most likely, the authentication in both systems is going to be different, forcing the users to log in when opening the SAP Analytics Cloud page or chart.

    • Hi Former Member ,

      I have never done it. SAP Analytics Cloud uses SAML. The only option, therefore, is using the same SAML IdP to authenticate uses in BI Launchpad. That can be achieved using Trusted authentication.
