SAP BI 4.2 SP5 Fiori BILaunchpad

Our Env: BI 42 SP5, Linux Red hat OS, 2 tomcat servers, 2 CMS servers, LB URL

I upgraded from 42 SP4 to SP5

Configured the restful URL to use tomcat host and port in CMC > Application > Restful so that we can use the RWS on the tomcat via the LB url and not on the WACS server.

I left the default version of biprws.properties as is on the tomcat server.

I am able to login to BILaunchpad but when I try to access any webi reports I get "Not Found (RWS 00005)" error.

Please advise!! If there is there is any documentation around this please share that.

Thanks in advance!

    Hello Roopa,

    you mentioned 2 tomcat servers :

    1. CMS is there in both the machines where tomcat deployed.

    2. Please verify manually REST SDK deployment is proper in both the tomcat servers :

    by hitting below url to both the tomcat servers (use any REST Client : Postman , RESTClient.....)

    http://<machine>:<tomcat_port>/biprws/raylight/v1/about

    https://blogs.sap.com/2017/04/21/session-management-in-bi-platform-rest-sdk-rws/

    Make sure both the tomcat server giving response for the WEBI APIs.

    • so if I set Access URL in CMC to: http://<tomcat>:8080/BOE/BILaunchpad then I am able to login but not able to run a report where I get "Not Found (RWS 00005)" error but if I set the access URL to loab balancer URL then I am not able to login where I get "Account information not recognized" error.

    Hello Roopa,

    Looks like WEBI REST SDK is not deployed properly.

    http://<machine>:<tomcat_port>/biprws/raylight/v1/about (This is WEBI REST API)

    http://<machine>:<tomcat_port>/biprws/v1/about (This is Platform REST API)

    As per your comment - WEBI API is giving "Resource not found".

    So, Make sure REST APIs are working fine in both the tomcats first. Then you can configure to load balancer.

    So please check the deployment of biprws in both the Tomcats.

    Path : C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP BusinessObjects\tomcat\webapps\biprws\WEB-INF\eclipse\plugins (Installation path might be different in your landscape "***********\tomcat\webapps\biprws\WEB-INF\eclipse\plugins" )

    check the below package is exist.

    • Hi Roopa,

      1. After upgraded to SP05 in production it stopped working ?
      2. Tomcat version and SP05 patch number ?
      3. need to check tomcat logs - looks like not deployed properly.
      4. Please take backup of folder biprws in tomcat/work/catalina/localhost -> delete it in work folder ->restart the tomcat once.

    • Thanks for the SAP note. After I upgraded WebTier install from 42 SP3 to SP5 P100 on Tomcat server, I am seeing those 2 files now and the BILaunchpad URL is working.

    Hello Roopa,

    1. Please watch the network trace while opening webi report - Which API is giving this error (Status 404 or 500) like http://<host>:<port>/biprws/raylight/v1/********** ?

    2. Is same things works fine with WACs serve ?

    Hi, we had the same problem : after upgrading from BI 4.2 SP3.2 to BI 4.2 SP5, the file "com.businessobjects.plugins.RepoAccess.jar" was not available.

    We have copied it from another environment (on which BI 4.2 SP5 was installed with a full-install from scratch), restarted Tomcat and afterwards it was working

    To SAP-Folks : I believe a SAP-Note must be created on this one !

    If you simply trying to open webi report then this error is not related to restful service at all, because restful is not used in the workflow of opening webi reports.

    Hello Roopa,

    This what I have found on SAP Help. Hope this helps you

    Ref: https://help.sap.com/viewer/015ba64bc9ad45f28e5118852c69a10b/4.2.5/en-US/4629b50a6e041014910aba7db0e91070.html

    Not Found (RWS 00005)

    Cause
    The specific resource could not be found. Either the resource does not exist or you do not have the permissions to view it.

    Action
    Verify that the URL you used was correct. If you're trying to view an InfoObject, use the Central Management Console (CMC) to verify that you have the right to view that object.

    Thank you

    Yogesh

    Hi Bharath,

    I guess, what is the configuration when you have Load balance URL with SSL enabled that talks to 2 tomcat servers (where WACS is deployed and tomcat servers that talk to 2 CMS servers). Our users need to be to able to login via LB URL to access BILaunchpad and access webi reports.

    1. What Access URL you need to set in CMC Restful WS Application?
    2. Our tomcat listens on port 8443 (port 80 redirects to 8080 and 8080 are open as redirects to 443 and 443 forwards to 8443)

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    I feel like SP5 still has issuses with WACS on tomcat.
