    Hi,

    I’m studying the functionalities of BOC at this point with the Trial version.

    Is it possible to upload the content to trial BOC?

     

    In my trial version, there is no button for “Deployment” so at least at the moment I cannot upload the content to the Trial version of BOC.

     
    Many Thanks!

     

    BR,

    Hi,

     

    I got the same issue as Toni mentioned previously, can you please advise where to find the button for “Deployment”.
    Many Thanks!

      Hi Daniel and Toni,

      it’s true that it is currently not possible to upload the content into a trial system as the “Deployment” option is not available.

      We are currently working on a setup so that the content can be studied without having a full licensed system yet.
      Any update on this topic will also be posted on this blog. So please revist our blog for further updates.

      Thanks and best regards,

      Guido

      Hi Marian,

      no the current content release is not valid for BusinessObjects Cloud release 2017.2.2. But we will for sure have a compatible release available when customer system are updated to 2017.2.2 (which is currently not the case yet).
      And this will be true for all releases: so you could always expect a compatible release of the content for the offical release customer will have in their BusinessObjects Cloud system.

    Hi all,

    is it possible to use this BOC content, in an environment where the source is not SAP?

    This is an EC&O customer, which uses a niche ERP, called EnKontrol,runs on a Sybase database.

    1. Guido Eichmann Post author

      Hi Edgar,

      as you could imagine we best integrate with SAP sources for the content and built the content for SAP sources. But in case you find the content or parts of it useful also for non SAP sources you could of course use it for your scenario.

      Best regards,

      Guido

    Hi everyone,

    I installed what I think is the most recent content in my BOC tennant (SAP_BOC_CONT_2017_01.tgz release date Feb. 23, 20017) but I’m getting some errors for the SAP_FI_Agenda (Boardroom agenda)

    dberror($.hdb.Connection.executeQuery): 0 – Server plugin error: Connection timeout!

    and for the Chemicals Porfolio performance growth products, which might be related because its related to FI as Well.

    Object SAP__CHEM_PRT_IM_MATERIAL imported and created
    Data was imported to object SAP__CHEM_PRT_IM_MATERIAL.
    dberror(PreparedStatement.executeUpdate): 494 – invalid EPM Query Source definition: 43253: implicit mappings: field _changeTime_ does not exist in actualDataSource “_SYS_BIC”.”t.J.t.S.SAP__FI_GEN_IM_GENERALLEDGER/SAP__FI_GEN_IM_GENERALLEDGER”

    Anyone with the same problem?

      Hi Sada,

      Thanks for your post. The error 494 – invalid EPM Query Source definition….is known but it is not an issue for the content. In case you would use a Value Driver Tree (VDT) with this model there might be an issue or an unexpected behaviour. It is planned to fix this issue with 2017.4.

      We have also included this information in the documenation as a know issue. The updated documentation will be available with the next release which is planned to be available on Friday March 10th.

      The connection timeout issue seems rather like a temporary issue on the SAP Cloud Platform. It does not sound to be related to the content – does this error still occur?

      Best regards,

      Guido

        Thanks for your reply Guido,  I tried a couple of times and still got the timeout error, but I haven’t tried again ever since. I will do a couple more attempts and post back here.

    Hi There,

     

    I use SAP BOPC version 2017.5.0 and found the latest content download not working with that version. What can I do about that? Any news on when the content is refreshed?

     

    TIA, Dirk

    Downloaded and installed content today; only errors warnings about Connections for Marketing data and for one other datasource. Nice piece of demo data :).

    Dear Guido,

    This content sounds great!  The only problem is I seem to be stuck in a loop with respect to the ZIP Code field in the form to update my account to SAP Store.

    I get the error ‘ZIP/Postal code must match country’.

    I am using our only similar code for this which is called “apartado postal” in Spanish, the country is Panamá.  I have tried some dummy codes also (all spaces, all 0, all 1) but nothing works.  Perhaps SAP can review the conditional that this field uses so that we can get access to this content.

     

    Kind regards

      hi, just a suggestion but i can confirm that in Spain the zip code is 5 numeric characters, such as 30590. could you use ‘Spain’ as your country and complete? regards, H

    2. Guido Eichmann Post author

      Hi James,

      thanks for you post and sorry to hear that the ZIP/postal code seems to cause some issues for you.

      But as this Postal Code is not a mandatory field it can be left empty. So the only mandatory fields you need are your first and last name, your company, your company e-mail, phone and country.

      Could you please try again? In case the issue still persist, please write a personal message to me.

      Thanks and regards,

      Guido

    Hi,

    we love the content and we are preparing big workshops for our customers, based on Concur Travel demo.

    Unfortunatelly, today we discovered that all charts based on Concur_travel model suddenly stopped working! We are getting authorization errors.

    However, when we are creating a new story based on Concur_travel model, everything works fine.

    Could you please help? The show is on Tuesday, so there is very little time to create a whole new story.

      Hi Dorota,

      sorry for the late reply – I hope you could resolve the issues and had a good customer workshop.
      Without knowing details it is hard to provide a solution for that authorization issue.
      We have not seen such a behaviour to date.

      Please send a message to sap_businessobjects_cloud_content@sap.com in case you need further assistance.

      Thanks and regards,

      Guido

    Hey experts! I hope you are fine !!

    I have a doubt:
    For users to create models by hana calculations views (BOC only) is it necessary to register the user’s P-USER (or S-USER) also in HCP or just in the BOC ???

    I believe it is only in the BOC, but I would like the opinion of our specialists. Can someone fix me?

    Thank you very much in advance.
