Viewing SAP Design Studio Dashboards in Microsoft SharePoint / Office365 Sharepoint

While SAP IOMS (Integration Option for Microsoft SharePoint) can support viewing of SAP BusinessObjects Web Intelligence (WebI) and Crystal Reports in SharePoint, it does not support viewing of SAP Design Studio dashboards yet. But there is a way to achieve this integration.

The following SAP Note 2057298 ( provides more information about SAP Design Studio support in IOMS

SAP Design Studio Dashboards can be consumed using OpenDoc in SharePoint. Navigate to the properties of the Design Studio Document from the Launchpad and open the Document link.

Copy the OpenDoc Link

In SharePoint, we would be using a SharePoint web part to display the SAP Design Studio application. The web part can be embedded in any existing page or can be viewed as a completely new page and also along with IOMS.

In the SharePoint editor mode, Go to Insert -> Web Part

Navigate to Media and Content -> Page viewer

Go to Page Viewer -> <Context Menu> Edit Web Part

Paste the OpenDoc URL in the Link property of the Web Part to embed the document in the page

Apply the changes and save the page. Now you will be able to see SAP Design Studio Dashboard on the page.

SharePoint and SSO

If SAP BO is configured for Single Sign-On with Windows Authentication, sharepoint can render it the dashboard seamlessly to Windows users.

If there is no Single Sign-On configured, the page would prompt the user to login before the dashboard is loaded.

Integrating SAP Design Studio with Office365 SharePoint

A similar method can be used to view an SAP Design Studio application from Office 365 SharePoint.

      Thanks for the article, it really helpsĀ as we are also trying to replicate similar scenario.


      Did you got a chance or any knowledge to do parameter passing from Design studio application to Sharepoint

      Can you be more specific? Do you want to call a SharePoint URL from within Design Studio?

      Yes Shankar,

      Will that be possible to call Sharepoint document link as source to Design Studio?.

      I am not sure if it can be done out of the Box. You might need third party Extensions for doing that.
