SAP BI Role upload to portal

By Nagaraju Annam, WIPRO Technologies

1.     Prerequisites

Before you upload objects from the BI system into the portal, you must carry out the following steps:

● Import the plug-in

Now you have to import the SAP Basis Plug-In into every BI system from which you want to do an upload. Only then will the functions need for the upload be completely available.

For more information, see the SAP Reference IMG -> SAP Customizing Implementation Guide -> SAP NetWeaver -> Business Intelligence -> Settings for Reporting and Analysis -> BEx Web -> Integration into the Portal -> Import SAP Basis Plug-In into the BI System.

● Authorizations in the BI System

You need the authorization S_RFC in the BI system for the function group PWP2.

● Configuring the system landscape in the portal

You need to create a system in the portal within the portal system landscape for every BI system from which you upload objects.

For more information, see the SAP Reference IMG ->SAP NetWeaver® Business Intelligence -> Settings for Reporting and Analysis -> BEx Web ® Integration into the Portal -> Create BI System in the Portal.
