Data source based on BI Cube (TCode CRMD_MKTDS)

Hi

We have a requirement to segment customers based on BI queries. This is done in transaction CRMD_MKTDS using Origin type Business Intelligence Cube. The problem is that the RFC-destination of the BI system does not show up in the list of possible entries. The only possible entry that is shown is the RFC destination for our interactive reporting client. The RFC-destination for the BI system does exist in CRM and it's working fine. If we choose InfoSet as the origin type all the RFCs show up (including the one to BI), but when the origin type Business Intelligence Cube is used the RFC is missing. Any ideas?

    Hi Dag,

    Please check with your Basis Team and ensure the RFC connection (SM59) to the BI system is a trusted connection and has BWREMOTE as the background/default logon user. After you are able to see the BI system in the F4 list and you navigate to the InfoProvider you'll need to make sure the Query is enabled for segmentation.

    Regards,

    Deepak

    Hi,

    The

    Function Module : CRM_MKTTG_DS_RFC_F4

    For Datasource = Infoset/ External list the RFC destinations are read directly from the table.

        • select RFCs

        SELECT * FROM rfcdes

        INTO CORRESPONDING FIELDS OF TABLE lt_f4_com_rfc

        BYPASSING BUFFER

        WHERE RFCTYPE = '3'.

        For BW datasource it is read as follows , the Function module 'RSA_RSBASIDOC_READ'gets data from statement

        'SELECT * FROM RSBASIDOC INTO TABLE BASIDOC'

        -


        IF lv_sds_type = sourcetypes-bw_cube OR lv_sds_type = sourcetypes-el

          • only RFC-Dest from BW: check if destination is aconnected BW

          CALL FUNCTION 'RSA_RSBASIDOC_READ'

          TABLES

          basidoc = lt_basidoc.

          LOOP AT lt_f4_com_rfc INTO ls_f4_com_rfc.

          READ TABLE lt_basidoc WITH KEY rlogsys = ls_f4_com_rfc-rfcdest

          INTO ls_basidoc.

          ====== Hope this information provided ansers your query.
