BO4.0: Universe based on Bex



We use BO 4.0 to connect to Bex queries directly from WebI. For a particular report, we need to burst the instances to varied user groups. Since publisher demands a universe, we decided to create a universe from the Universe Design Tool, since it is easier to create.

Could you please advise me as to what is a better tool to create a universe in this case? The IDT or the UDT?

Can the IDT be used directly to work with Bex queries? As per my knowledge it cannot, since BICS connections are not supported.

And if the UDT is to be used, then should a relational connection be used to connect to the SAP BW cube?

Thanks ,
