Introduction

InfoObject maintenance in the BW Modelling Tools (BW-MT) was made mandatory starting with SAP BW 7.5 SP4 on HANA. Since then it is not possible to maintain/create InfoObjects from the SAP GUI using the transaction RSD1. Displaying though still works.

This change surprised the one or the other as this is the first existing BW object which must be maintained in the BW-MT. Up to now only new objects like Composite Provider and Open ODS Views were only available there.

It was tested under release 7.5 SP04.

Please read the disclaimer carefully

 

  • Be careful, by following this. You basically tell the system that it is not a BW on HANA system.
  • You should also consider that there is some stuff which can only be maintained in the BW-MT, for instance transitive attributes.
  • It should be only used in case you are running into problems using the BW Modelling Tools (BW-MT).

 

 Step by Step

Step 1: Go to tcode- RSD1

  • Call transaction RSD1
  • You will see that the transaction is in display mode, i.e. no create or maintain button.

 

 

Step 2: Enter nohdb into the OK Code field

  • Enter “nohdb” into the as per the following screenshot and press enter

Now you can see Maintain button in below screen.

    Hi Srinivas,

    I understand that this is well intended and you did add a disclaimer. However, there is absolutely no guarantee that RSD1 will work. To the contrary there is a significant risk that maintaining InfoObjects this way will lead to inconsistencies potentially damaging the BW system.

    If there are any problems maintaining InfoObjects using the BW Modeling Tools, then please create an incident report and let SAP Support handle the situation. Thanks!
