Lumira SAP BW Data Acquisition Connector - Default BI Platform Connection

Hi,

We are using SAP BI 4.2 and Lumira 1.31 in a Citrix environment.

We want to use "SAP BW Data Acquisition Connector" via BI Platform to access OLAP sources and relevant Infoproviders in a SAP BW system.

We have SAP GUI 7.40 with NWBC installed, so "SAP BW Data Acquisition Connector" via SAP Logon Ini file does not work and we don't want to use "Local BW System" Mode to access BW system.

Since we are on SAP GUI 7.4 where there is no SAPlogon.ini file anymore we also get an error message when starting BW Acquisition mode that says:

"Could not load the details for the SAP Business Warehouse connections. Ensure that SAP Logon is installed on the system and has SAP Business Warehouse connections defined".

Is there any way to "turn off" the option to select "Local BW System" so that we are only left with "SAP BusinessObjects BI Platform" when starting the "SAP BW Data Acquisition Connector"?

Thanks for all input in this questions.

regards

Oddmar Lid

    You can setup rights for the lumira users to publish the content to BI platform.

    And also you can setup, desktop governance to control which data sources.

    Hi Jawahar,

    This How To guide seems very good when it comes to restricting the general access to different sources from the end users.

    But it does not give me the possitibility to remove the possibility to connect oth the "Local BW System" when select the "Download from SAP BW" source.

    I want the Connect To field to only contain the option "SAP BusinessObjets BI Platform" and by this way also avoid the error message because Lumira tries to find the SAPlogon.ini file.

    Do you know any way this can be achieved?

    regards

    Oddmar
