SAP BICS connection through “Query Panel” on SAP BO Dashboard in SAP BO BI 04 SP04


Dear Experts,

1. How to implement SAP BO Dashboards using SAP BEx query as source(BICS OLAP connection)

and would like to run this dashboard from BI platform(BI Launchpad).

2. As i understand, it wasn’t possible till FP3 to run Dashboards(having BEx BICS connection)

on BI platform, but now with SAP BO4 SP04 onward we can connect to BEx queries on the

Business Warehouse through Dashboards' "Query Builder" panel. Connectivity requires

SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence platform, but does not requir

a NetWeaver Java BI Server.

3. However, i'm interested to know what are the current limitations of using

SAP BICS connection through “Query Panel” on SAP BO Dashboard and what

SAP recommends as a long term solution. This information is crucial for for me

to make some architectural decisions. It would be really helpful,

if anyone suggest any official docs on “Add Query/Query Panel” feature

pertaining to latest SAP BO version SAP BO4 SP04.

Looking for your Valuable inputs.
