Connect BusinessObject on premise to HANA on SAP Cloud Platform in live mode

Hi,

I recently read this article about connecting BusinessObject on-premise to a SAP Cloud Platform.

However the proposed solution is a SAP HANA connection, and not a SAP HANA http connection. I need the second option, an OLAP connection of type "SAP HANA http" which is useful as a live data source for Lumira 2.0. How can I connect BO on-premise to HANA in cloud using the option SAP HANA http connection?

Thanks

    Hi Fabio,

    You can create an OLAP Connection in Central Management Console with type SAP HANA http, then it would be configured with base URL to access your XS engine in Cloud Platform.

    I would advise you test with most recent version of BI Suite available, since there have been some errors and limitations corrected along the way. I can confirm this will work whether you use HTTP or HTTPS, and for pre-defined credentials or Single Sign On. Still in case of error blocking your implementation you may reach to Support, where they will guide you to determine how to get working scenario.

    Hi guys,

    The OLAP connection is working.

    Inside the CMC, in the OLAP connection setting, the login is not working, but actually the OLAP connection works.
    Thank you very musch for your help.

    Hi all,

    I still have one problem. The OLAP connection is working if I execute the Lumira Application locally (from the Designer client), but the connection is not working when I execute the Application on the BI platform.

    Any suggestion?

    Hi,

    There could be different reasons for that, for instance a need to import HTTPS certificate into SAP JVM in BI Platform or to specify some encryption should be disabled (described in KBA https://launchpad.support.sap.com/#/notes/2442171)

    You could check in traces from Lumira server if there is a detailed explanation for this failure, or else open HANA traces to find if an error occured that corresponds to BI Suite scenario.

    Best regards,

    Hi all,

    I finally solved my issue. It wasn't related to the certificate but it was all about BI platform version. Following this note I updated the BI platform and solved my issue.

    Thanks to all
