Crystal Report integration with ABAP functions in BW system


Hello all,

We have a requirement from our client that is to create custom reports from SEM BSC data.

We managed to create almost all the information they needed in BEx, except for one thing: Assessments.

As we know, assessments are stores in the BW system as documents, very particular ones. There are standard methods within SEM BSC that could retrieve the assessments from functions calls.

We had initially pointed Visual Composer as the tool for calling those functions and displaying the returned data on a Flash user interface. However, as this tool was not yet used by the client, we started looking at BO, which was already being installed.

My question is: Can I call the functions that are in the BW system, in the same way I'd call a function from ECC in CR?

If so, what are the authorization objects the user must have in BW? I looked at the integrations documentation, but it only shows the authorization objects required for infosets, SQL, etc.

Ingo, any help here would be extremely appreciated.

Many thanks,

Bruno Ballardie
