Getting Started on SAP Design Studio 1.3 powered by BW on HANA – Part 2

Design Studio 1.3 now support HANA-only deployment as well.

  • You can now save your application in HANA Repository.
  • Design Studio runtime is moved to browser, No Java stack as deployment platform is needed
  • Using firefly instead of BICs at Design Studio runtime

NOTE: You can only connect to one SAP HANA system, and can only add data sources from one SAP HANA System.

Steps:

Create a View (in SAP HANA Studio)

  1. Create an Analytical View or Cal View by importing BW model into HANA.

I created views on Sales Order infocube.

Create an Application (using SAP Design Studio)

  1. Run the SAP Design Studio tool and set the preferred startup mode as “SAP HANA” (Tools -> Preferences)

   3. Create a new application and click Finish

   4. Add a data source

          Select the view which you just created.


NOTE: When adding analytic views or calculation views as data sources to your analysis applications, you should note that SAP BusinessObjects Design Studio can only use analytic views or calculation views, which have the MultiDimensional Reporting property set to true.

      Hi Anil,

      Thanks for sharing steps on integrating the new technologies.

      I am using the Design Studio 1.5, and have Calculation View with Input Parameter so when add the data source for that Calculation view in the Design Studio, it doesn't show up the dialogue box for entering Input parameters. Is there some setting I need to do in Design Studio (may be on the Data Source) to enable the Input Parameter dialogue box?

      Thanks,

      Abhay

      Hi Anil Bavaraju

      I am stuck on the "execute on HANA" step.

      Can you please help me out ?

      I can see the packages created by the Design Studio, inside the HANA studio -> Content.

      Best,

      Unfortunately I was not able to find a solution, so I switched over to BI Platform.
