Integrating BW with Portal

Hi gurus...........needed important information regarding BW and Portal integration. Specially the reports in BW should be available in EP. We are on BW3.5 and EP6.0 on WebAs 6.40.

What are the possible methods of integration? How the users of the EP will get the data from BW reports? If a user in a certain role want to access BW reports from the Portal, what rights that user should have in the BW system to run those reports? Is there any way out?

Thanks in advance.

    Hi Vicky,

    have a look at

    There you'll find

    - prerequisites

    - Integration from the User’s Viewpoint

    - Integration from the Viewpoint of Administrators and Authors

    Basically I would desricbe the Integration methods like:

    BW --> EP:

    Publish BW Reports to the Portal via,

    - WebApplicationDesigner and Querydesigner,

    - online (Context menu)

    - Information Broadcaster

    (Iviews are then created in the Portal)

    EP --> BW:

    Access BW Reports via

    - Business Package ' Business Explorer'

    - Use delivered BW Iviews to access certain


    Authorization: I would cosider access through Portal just

    like direct acess. Your useres need regular User-Accounts on the BW.

    Kind Regards,

    make the settings described in the following link

    these steps are more importantö

    After making this settings you can publish the portal reports in many ways as explained in the above post.

    Autorizations in Bw he dont need to have any special autorizations to access them from EP.

    with regards

      We have been trying to do the same, and have been through all of the steps described in the documents above, but have still had no success...
