      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 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

      Is the conted valid for release 2017.2.2 ?

       

      Thank you and Best regards

      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.

      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,

      Can we use the SAC standard business content offered by SAP with integration to SAP ECC system ?

      Does all the SAC content can be integrated with SAP ECC ERP source ?

       

      Author's profile photo Henry Banks
      Henry Banks

      Hi SANJAY GAJERA

      it depends on the package you're considering
      if the underlying SAC models are based on 'Import', you MIGHT be able to wrangle/map the acquisition models and fit them to your ECC fields but it's a tricky task mapping model columns  to incoming fields
      for the the 'Live' connected models, these templates pretty much tied to a Hana connection+ CDS view which wont be possible with ECC ...

      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

      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

      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 Guido,

      Many thanks for your reply.  The form still insists that a street address and postcode are required.

      I was able to get past this by putting my home address in the UK (cheers Henry) but as the account is for my company in Panamá I don't see this as a permanent solution.  I think these fields should be optional as you suggested.

       

      Kind regards

      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.

      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_analytics_cloud_content@sap.com in case you need further assistance.

      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.

      The SAP store provides me a new filename: SAP_SAC_CONT_2017_17_1.zip

      With the normal Windows-ZIP view, i still cannot open this file. But with 7-ZIP it works!

       

      Thank you for your feedback, that the file looks fine.

      Hi everyone,

      I tried to access the ByDesign content with a trial demo - but not successful.

      Is it possible to setup a ByD demo connection in trials?

      Hi Thomas,

      Are you refering to the trial offered on https://www.sapanalytics.cloud/. In that case it is currently not possible to install SAP Analytics Cloud content here. The trial also only supports a local file upload or a connect to Google Drive.

      Please get in touch with your SAP contact who will be able to help you with your request. In case you currently have no contact person please send us an e-mail with your contact information and we will connect you.

      Thanks

      Hi Colleagues,

      This content is really nice - I'm interested by the Successfactors part and I have imported it.

      Nevertheless I see how to connect the models with the successfactors connector by ding the data import but the upload of public dimensions is quite difficult.

      Do you know why we do not have the possibility to import data from Successfactors in the dimension editor - we have some data sources but not SF ?

      Best regards,

      Thomas

      Dear Guido,

      This content sounds great! I have imported the Utilities standard content, however, I cannot see the data in the Finance story ("No data is available for the chart to render" for some charts). Is this because of the S/4 HANA live connection? The help document (page 15) says "The CDS query 2CCFIAP_DPO is currently not in released state. The current timeline for the release of this CDS query is 201805".

      Is there a way to update some test data to the model, I am unable to upload sample data to the model.

      Thanks,

      Rohit

      It looks like most of the contents are meant for S/4 Hana CDS views. If we are still on ERP on Hana, are we out of luck for SAC contents?

      Hi Jonanthan,

      if you can map from your ERP data source to the content, you can of course use the content with ERP (and basically any other source of your choice). But the fit out of the box is obvioulsy best with the described data source.

      Guido, thanks for your comment although I don't understand what you mean. Have you tried to map the ERP data source to the SAC content which seem to require S/4? Note that S/4 has a different table structure from ERP. Which one(s) are mappable?

      Hi Jonathan,

      no I have not done this. Yes of course the structures in S/4 are differnent from ERP.

      But looking eg. at the finance content, you will find data in S/4 and ERP. You will find a mapping for many dimensions/measures that we offer in the SAC FI content from ERP, but not all, as structures and logics have been enhanced in S/4. Maybe you also need some additional data wrangling before you can upload the data.

      Hi Guido,

      Thanks for the information in the blog.

      I see that there is pre delivered content in Industries and Line of Businesses for S/4HANA cloud.

      Can SAP Analytics cloud content be connected to BW/4HANA standard content (Data targets, Composite providers, ADSOs, Queries, etc…) and retrieve the information through the standard pre delivered dashboards and stories in SAC?

      Please provide documentation link if you have any.

      Regards,

      Hi Madhav,

      in general any content could also be sourced from other sources than the one described in the documenation - also BW/4 content. Here the query would be the source.

      Sourcing it from other than the described source does not guarantee that the dashboard will run out of the box or would show all visualization - it depends on what information the other data source is providing and also on the connectivity that is used.

      But we also have content that direclty builds on  BW/4 content. To get an overview of what package is using which data source I recommend browsing the "content inventory Excel" which you get as part of the Roll-Out PDF here.

      Hello,

       

      I tried to consume the ByDesign Content, because I should do similar work for our used ByD system.

      I'm able to download the content, but there are NO credentials for the SAP_BYD_CONNECTOR, so I'm not able to see, how the models are built up in detail.

      Is there a possibility to get the correct credentials?

       

      Best Regards

      Andreas

      Hi Andreas Stankovsky

      if i refer you to the detailed documenation for ByD  (now in the online help, it used to be a pdf download) https://help.sap.com/viewer/42093f14b43c485fbe3adbbe81eff6c8/release/en-US/b39b437ebc1943f2b561ece11239285d.html

      You'll notice that it gives the connection name : SAP_BYD_CONNECTOR

      you need to create that ByD connection in your own SAC tenant up-front (before restoring the package) - with the exact same name - and supply the ByD credentials for your ByD system.

      Best of luck, let us know how you get along.

      Regards

      Hi Henry Banks

       

      I also had a look in this documentation before, but I didn't realize that I have to set up such a connection to my system first.

      I thought this would be some Demo content from a virtual company called Almika so that I can analyze the structure of the models, story an look if I could make or need something similar for our company.

      But if I should use a connector to my (company) tenant, it could be, that we don't even use these content by now, so I wouldn't be able to open anything.

       

      BTW, I created the SAP_BYD_CONNECTOR to our tenant and got the business content afterwards, BUT I'm still not able to "Rebuild Model". Could this be due to the fact, that we do not have a planning licence? All the 3 model types are Planning...

      Is there a possibility to geht Business content working for analytic models too. I really need somehow working templates/examples from how to extend Business ByDesign via SAC - I'm quite stuck in this task.

       

      best regards

      Andreas

      Hi Andreas Stankovsky   that sounds exactly right : no planning license - no access to planning models.. sorry about the inconvenience

      my recommendation would be that you  build BI models from scratch against your ByD , and use the documentation as 'inspiration' about what fields you should query into your analytic model.

      as to whether you can 'repoint' a copy of the business content stories quickly to your own-built models, that remains to be seen - that feature was delivered for import models recently (but i can't remember the exact wave) .. you may have to reconfirm the charts inputs..

      but do use the documentation as your build specifications for the models, will give you the KPI packs quickly.

      ..  where product version is listed as SAP S/4HANA Cloud 2108.

      Hi,

       

      Have you checked the available business content for workforce planning? There is one model on it that you coukld use as an accelerator instead of starting from scratch. Description and link below. Hope it helps

       

      Operational Headcount Planning by Job

      It covers the process of planning the headcount or full-time equivalents for a twelve months planning horizon. The planning is performed on a job classification level per organizational unit and allows for planning of hires, terminations, transfers-in and transfers-out. In a second step the salary and merit increase per job classification is planned. New positions (i.e. job classifications) together with annual salary can be created in specific locations for planning of new headcount and full-time equivalents. Comprehensive pre-built analytics stories support the planning activities. The solution is designed with planning administrator and planner roles in mind with role-specific launchpads.

      we are using S/4 HANA (on premise) and SAC for planning and reporting.

      Which business content should I use for live reporting of Actuals (ACDOCA) and Plan Data (ACDOCP) covering the full details of both tables (without further configuration in S/4)?

      Hi Thomas

       

      There are several different business content packages that you could use depending on the requirement or the analysis purpose and some even pull data from additional tables and or systems. You can have a look at the full list on the link below. If you simply want to build reports pulling data from ACDOCA and/or ACDOCP maybe you can look directly for the available CDS views delivered with S4 that you could use as a datasource for building your models/stories. Hope it helps.

      Thanks Pedro. I already know those sources and I´ve checked them.

      The only content package which seems to cover S/4 HANA on premise live-reporting on ACDOCA and ACDOCP seems to be this one:

      SAP Finance - Live based on Semantic Tags- Live connectivity to S4HANA"

      Currently I get an error from S/4 when using it.

      I don´t want to invest efforts in repairing this content until I don´t know if it covers really the business requirements. Documentation is not so detailed.

       

      So my question is still:

      Which concrete content packages are available for S/4 HANA live reporting für Actuals and Plan data? Is it really only the one with Semantic Tags or is there also other content provided by SAP?

      Regards,

      Thomas
