SAP Demo Content :RSFC

SAP delivers special feature Demo Content for SAP BW 7.x. It explains the most used features of the Analytic Engine and the Planning Engine of Integrated Planning. The features are explained with several queries separated into different areas. The content can be accessed and activated within transaction RSFC.


  • Why is Demo Content so helpful?
  •  The SAP Demo Content for features significantly simplifies the understanding of some specific features.                                    
        o  Along with the queries we also deliver its corresponding documentation explaining the feature in this query. This document is less abstract and easy to understand as it refers to the queries delivered in the system.                       
        o  If you have problems understanding the documentation, the consulting and support departments can refer directly to the examples.                               
        o  During system checks or in the case of error messages, the scenarios can be used as a health check in the system.          

    Refer to the last section in this blog to understand the availability of the SAP Demo Content. (NW Support Package details). Further demo scenarios and health checks are added in the subsequent Support Packages and this blog shall continue to be updated with this information.


    • What objects does the Demo Content consist of

    The SAP Demo Content for features consists of classic content objects. These are predefined

    1. InfoCubes and queries (as of Support Package Stack 16, workbooks and Web templates are also delivered).                    
    2. In addition, the data of the scenarios : transactional data and master data (texts, hierarchies, attributes) is delivered compressed in an archive.
    3. For each scenario, a documentation text is delivered, which describes the scenario and the feature. This text is displayed in transaction RSFC.

    If you activate a scenario from transaction RSFC, the system first activates the relevant query and the underlying InfoProvider from the content. Then, the InfoProvider is supplied with data from the archive. All text data, hierarchy data and attribute data is loaded from the  archive. You can execute the query directly.


    • How to activate the Demo Content

    Implement all notes listed in Note 1133935 as relevant to your system. Subsequently activate the examples in transaction RSFC.

    •  Authorisations required for the Demo Content

    The transaction is protected by the authorization object R_RS_RSFC. The “Activity” authorization field determines whether you are allowed to call transaction RSFC and display the examples and whether you may activate the examples from the content and supply them with data.       
        o  Calling the transaction and displaying the examples (activity = 03)  
        o  Activating the example objects from the content and loading the data (activate and initialize) (activity = 07)
