Connecting SAC to BPC on premise

Hi,

I am looking to connect SAC to BPC on premise via the Cloud Connector.

I have the Cloud Connector successfully installed on our local network and the Check Result in "Reachable". Everything looks successful in the connection from a cloud connection perspective. However I cannot pull the data from BPC to my Cloud model. Additionally, I cannot send data from cloud back to bpc. Can you please help me with this integration?

Thanks

Graham

    In addition to Adam's and Antal's answers, I have found the Guided Playlists to be very helpful with connectors - see https://www.sapanalytics.cloud/guided_playlists/connection-administration/

    Hi Graham,

    First I recommend installing the latest cloud connector

    https://tools.hana.ondemand.com/#cloud , 2.11.03 to avoid the already known and fixed issues.

    Increase the logging levels and enable payload tracing:

    https localhost : 8443 - "Log and Trace Files" -> in Settings press Edit button

    In popup window set

    - cloud connector loggers - All

    - other loggers - All

    - Payload Trace - set checkbox

    With these settings try to reach the backend from cloud and check the ljs_trace and payload files.

    If Location ID is configured, ensure that cloud side the same Location ID is used.

    Best regards,

    Hi Graham,

    Additionally, you can check our online help document which covers all the necessary prerequisites and configuration steps in order to establish Import Data Connection to an SAP BPC system:

    Thanks All, this is great. I have now got my connection working. I adjusted some setting and created a new connection.

    I know have another issue.

    My existing SAC model no longer has the connection. So I would like to reconnect my SAC model with BPC however I cannot find the model in Target model.

    If I navigate to my model in SAC --> Import Data --> Import Data from SAP BPC

    Taget Model --> model name ------- I cannot find my model. It appears I cannot create a connection for an existing SAC model?

    Thanks

    Graham
