I had always problems to find the latest published Interface paper’s. The The specified item was not found. is not under my control, so I would like to use this blog to keep you updated about the latest interface news and would really like to hear from you which interfaces are missing, what we should improve or let us know how you use our interfaces. I hope you like this summarization and you enjoy using them.

Nobody really knows, which BI interface can be used for a dedicated purpose, which interface is officially supported by SAP, and which one not. We try to answer these questions in the BI interface documents attached to 3 different IT scenarios of the SAP NetWeaver Developers Guide (SAP NetWeaver 7.0).

This Interface Matrix shows an overview of all available BI interfaces. In addition to the matrix you can find the detailed BI interface documents linked to the respective IT scenario below:

Additional Interfaces can be found in the system in Transaction BAPI. Eg. to get the Meta Data Information for a InfoObject “BAPI_IOBJ_GETDETAIL “.

    We have quite interesting situation right now.

    After the upgrade from BW 3.5 to BI 7.0 SP15 program that uses RSDRI_INFOPROV_READ stopped working, i.e. RSDRI_INFOPROV_READ returns code = 11.

    We opened an OSS message to SAP Support, but they returned the message saying that … the function RSDRI_INFOPROV_READ has attribute “not released” in our system and therefore is not supported by SAP as per note 109533.

    Is it possible that non-released function module is included into the software distribution package? How can we get actual “released” version of the function module?

    Thank you,
    -Vitaliy
