Portal iView not showing list of tables when creating the iView?

Hello,

I'm using 5.5 SP6. I have a system object which works just fine and I can create iviews on without any problems, but when I try to create iViews using a new system object I created (to a different repository) I have no tables available in the "Search Table" drop-down of the iview creation wizard. The system object passed the connection tests (has default alias and working user-mapping), I can't figure out what's the problem.

Please avoid sending me links to the standard documentation; been there, done that, it doesn't deal with this situation, at least not as far as I've seen (if you can prove me wrong that'll be great.)

Any ideas? I know this might be more of a portal question, but I figured at least some of the people here double as portal people too.

Cheers,

Alon

    Hi Alon,

    Check whether the user mapping has username and password as well because you cannot keep password as blank.

    Also check whether the repository is loaded.

    Since you can work with other repository then there is no question of version mismatch between MDM Server and the Portal content.

    At last just try restarting your Portal server once.

    Hi Alon,

    It could be a problem of version mismatch between your deployed files and the EP version.

    Refer mdm-standard-iviews

    Hope it helps.

    Thanks,

    Hi Alon,

    Are the two repositories you are trying to connect to thorugh Portal are on the same MDM server?

    And is the repository a Custom defined one or SAP std one?

    As in the past few users have faced some problems with creating system objects and iviews with std shipped repositories.

    With custom designed rep Ep should work fine if you are using teh latest version of MDM.

    - Try restarting the MDM server for the desired rep.

    - Try restarting the WAS.

    - Make sure the rep you are trying to connect is mounted and loaded.

    If its a problem you are facing with the std rep content try creating a custom rep and check to see if its allowing you to create a Sytem object for it or is it throwing the same error.

    Check the user mapping and Authorization for that user correctly in portal and MDM too.

    Hope It Helped

    Thanks & Regards
