SAC live connection to SAP BI Universe

We are on BI 42 SP5 P100, Configured Live data connectivity for SAC. I was able to successfully create connection from SAC tenant URL to our BI server.

However, When I try to create a model from a simple universe I get this error: app.chunk.modeller-chunk.e4dd699aa3ab086039f8.js:29 Uncaught (in promise) TypeError: Cannot read property 'metadata' of undefined"

Has anyone run into this issue?

  • Hi Tammy,

    I dont have connection setup for efashion but I ended up building a brand new unx with like 7 dimensions and 1 measure and I was able to build the model ok. Seems like there are many restrictions using the live connection to SAP universes.

    Thanks, Roopa

  • Hi Tammy,

    actually Roopa is talking about the Live access, not the Import model (your screen).

    Hi Ole,

    What we noticed is that the unx needs to be customized for analytics cloud. I created a simple universe with 8 dimension objects and measure and that seems to work but not our existing universes. Seems like there are many restrictions:

    Hi Roopa,

    Yes, I have seen this error and I reported it to development:

    They are currently testing the fix in newer waves of the product. You can identify in Tomcat logs why the Universe cannot be used.

    The error should be passed to the user indicating something like: the universe contains contexts that currently are not supported. Instead, you get this behaviour. But ultimately, what it indicates is that this universe can't be used.
