Live Connection from BO Cloud to multiple HANA box

We have ECC on HANA as well as BW on HANA. Both HANA instances are on premise. Need to consume few HANA Live views from first HANA instance and calculation views built on second HANA instance simultaneously in BOBJ Cloud. Is it possible ? How the security is going to work ?

    Hi Arijit,

    To your question on the replication you are correct: Live data means that your data never goes to BOC, it is only loaded directly in your browser. That means that HANA data never leaves your network, it only goes to the reverse proxy (in your network) and your browser and all using HTTPS protocol.

    For external users you have two options:

    1. DMZ and open the required ports

    2. Users connect via VPN to your network

    Cheers,

    Hi Arijit,

    Yes, that is possible. You need a reverse proxy:

    https://blogs.sap.com/2016/06/16/sap-businessobjects-cloud-setup-connection-to-remote-hana-systems-via-apache-reverse-proxy/

    You can define your on-premise HANA systems using Paths, for example: /myHANAECC and /myHANACalculations etc.

    ProxyPass /myHANAECC/ http://HANAECC.yourdomain.com:80XX/
    
    ProxyPassReverse /myHANAECC/ http://HANAECC.yourdomain.com:80XX/

    Where the XX refers to the instance number.

    When you define your connections in SAP BusinessObjects cloud you will require to use Path connection and indicate the path needed /HANAECC, etc.

    Regards,
    Julian
