Design Studio – How to Set Up Background Processing Using Global Script Variables

Last week I did a simplified version of background processing at How to set up Background Processing in Design Studio

Today using SAP’s Learning Hub (see Getting access & accessing SAP Learning Hub #SAPEducation ) I am using global script variables with background processing in Design Studio against an ECC data source (see How to Connect Design Studio with your ECC System )

Step 1: One data source script loading is set to false (loads immediately) while the other data source loads in the background (set to false):


In my example the cross tab loads immediately while the chart loads in the background.

Step 2: Define Global Script Variable as a counter

Cross tab loads immediately, the chart loads in the background.

See how it loads below:
