On Friday, a BI 2013 attendee asked me this question – can you create a Web Intelligence document against an ECC data source. I had never tried this so I tried it today and thought I would share.
First you must set up an OLAP connection against your ECC system in the CMC. Then follow the “normal” transient provider steps. You must be on enhancement package 5 for this to work.
The general steps are in the above figure.
I also review how to create it in this Web Intelligence video below (no audio):
There is no universe involved, simply a BEx query against the ECC transient provider.
