Hi everyone, in this blog I’m going to talk about the basic configurations for activate Embedded Analytics in S/4HANA On-Premise 1511 version. This blog is mainly focused on the separated installation of the Fiori Frontend System and S/4HANA Backend system. Let’s dive in to it.
Frontend system SAP Fiori for S/4HANA OP 1511
Bakend system SAP S/4HANA Backend
An additional SAP Web Dispatcher
You’ve completed the following configurations as mentioned in the Administration Guide for the Implementation of SAP S/4HANA:

A Step-by-Step Configuration
1. On Backend System
1.1 Activate BW Client
Use transaction SE37 to run function module RS_MANDT_UNIQUE_SET, as SAP documents mentioned, it’s not necessary to setup a separate BW client, so we’ll using the production client 800.
After donw that, check BW client settings by using function module RS_MANDT_UNIQUE_GET, you should be able to see the client information as an value of the export parameter E_UNIQUE_MANDT.
1.2 Setup User Parameters for DDIC user
Use transaction SU01 to set the following parameters for user DDIC in the working client (if in some case the DDIC doesn’t exist, create it manually)
RSWAD_DEV_MDVERSION = ‘072’
RSWAD_SKIP_JAVA = ‘X’
1.3 Modification of the Admin Cockpit Installation Objects
Use transaction SE38 run report SAP_RSADMIN_MAINTAIN and insert the following object and value
1.4 Activate Technical Content
Use transaction RSTCO_ADMIN to activate install the Analytic Engine in the working client (if the job failed, try to use DDIC user to perform the activity and check the activate log for more detailed information)
1.5 Generate Packages for OData Services
Use transaction SE38 to run report EQ_RS_AUTOSETUP without check mode.
Use transaction SE37 to run function module RSEC_GENERATE_BI_ALL
1.6 Validate InfoObjects
Use transaction RSD5 to validate the InfoObjects, at the bottom of the screen, choose All InfoObjects and click on Display. Everything should have an green icon in the validation field.
1.7 Create a ICF Handler Service
Use transaction SICF to create a Sub-Element entry under /sap/bw/ina with the following information:
Type: Reference to Existing Service
In the “Target” tab, select /sap/es/ina/GetServerInfo as the target
You may also need to configure the ICF service to using anonymous access if you haven’t setup SSO between Frontend system and Backend system.
1.8 Activate ICF Services
Use transaction SICF to activate the following ICF services (with all sub-trees):
2 Frontend System Configuration
2.1 Configuration of OData Service
Use transaction /n/IWFND/MAINT_SERVICE to add Local System Alias to OData Service RSAO_ODATA_SRV, and activate ICF Node, then test the configuration by click on “Call Browser”. You should be able to see the XML format odata service output without any error.
2.2 Activate Query Browser
Use transaction SICF to activate the following ICF service (with sub-trees):
use transaction /n/IWFND/MAINT_SERVICE to add OData Service VDM_CDSVIEW_BROWSER from the Backend system.
2.3 Role Assignment
Assign role SAP_BR_EMPLOYEE to the a user through SU01.
2.4 Activate 0ANALYSIS
Use transaction RSOR to install 0ANALYSIS.
3 Configure SAP Web Dispatcher
Modify the SAP Web Dispatcher instance profile, the following paths should be routed to the S/4HANA backend server:
Example of the Web Dispatcher instance profile parameters:
wdisp/system_0 = SID=<Frontend_SID>, MSHOST=<FQDN_of_Frontend>, MSPORT=<Frontend_Message_Service_Port>, SRCSRV=*:*, SRCURL=/sap/bc/ui2/flp;/sap/opu/;/sap/bc/;/sap/public/;/sap/bc/ui5_ui5/;/sap/saml2/;/ui2/nwbc/;/resources/sap/dfa/help/, CLIENT=430
wdisp/system_1 = SID=<Backend_SID>, MSHOST=<FQDN_of_Backend>, MSPORT=<Backend_Message_Service_Port>, SRCSRV=*:*, SRCURL=/sap/es/;/sap/bw/ina/;/sap/bw/Mime/DS/Content/, CLIENT=800
wdisp/system_conflict_resolution = 2
icm/HTTPS/verify_client = 0
icm/server_port_0 = PROT=HTTPS, PORT=443, TIMEOUT=300, EXTBIND=1
icm/server_port_1 = PROT=HTTP, PORT=80, TIMEOUT=300, EXTBIND=1
Notice, if the BW version on the Front server is lower than in the S/4HANA backend server, you also need to add the following path to the Web Dispatcher configuration profile parameter:
4 Access the Query Browser
Now you can add more Fiori Analytic Apps or even create your own CDS view and create KPI Tile.
Hope this will be useful to you and I’m willing to receive your feedback!
