Crystal reports 2011 integration with SAP ECC

Hi Friends,

As I need to generate few reports from ECC (SAP) through CRYSTAL Report 2011 and need to know the integration process.

1. I referred the document and I understand that I need to install Crystal report 2011 at server side and are required to upload transport files in ECC

as a part of integration

2. and also need to know what I have to do at Client side.(do I have to install any front end client system)

2. Would like to know How it will bring the data from ECC only by uploading the transport files? or do I need to do some other workaround.

3.if I have to do any workaround please suggest the steps.

4.And how the user management will work in Crystal report (Means the user/Group/Authorization)

5.And if I want to generate the reports in CRYSTAL REPORTS 2011 and want to publish in BO XI 3.1 Platform is it possible ?

Please suggest as early as possible

Current environment


SOURCE : ECC

ETL : DS 3.2

Reporting : BOXI 3.1 SP5 +Webi

    HI,

    1. I referred the document and I understand that I need to install Crystal report 2011 at server side and are required to upload transport files in ECC

    as a part of integration

    --> When you install Crystal reports 2011, Integration transports are installed by default.

    2. and also need to know what I have to do at Client side.(do I have to install any front end client system)

    --> Install Crystal reports 2011 as client tool. Here is the product release. Look for SAP Toolbar and there are ADAPT numbers that supports the fix, if you come accross any issues while installing.

    2. Would like to know How it will bring the data from ECC only by uploading the transport files? or do I need to do some other workaround.

    --> You should see Driver list(SAP BW MDX.SAP Infosets,SAP Operational Dta Store, SAP Tables,clusters or Function) when you select Database>> Database Expert>> Create New connection >>SAP Tables,clusters or function(to connect to ECC tables) >> log into available systems>> select the table.

    3.if I have to do any workaround please suggest the steps.

    --> If you face any error during this poricess, post back pls. depending on it someone might help you on the issue.

    4.And how the user management will work in Crystal report (Means the user/Group/Authorization).

    --> Save the Crystal reports into folders using your BOE authentication. Authorization will depend on the the roles/access level to the user on the folders and reports.

    For ECC authorization.. here is the link.

    5.And if I want to generate the reports in CRYSTAL REPORTS 2011 and want to publish in BO XI 3.1 Platform is it possible ?

    --> Yes you can except the export ffeatures that are available in BO 4.0, I didn;t face any issue but do check the comaptibility before going forward. Here is the link:

    Let me know if you need any more dteails.

    Thanks,
