About myself:

This is Lakshmikanth Adharapurapu Venkata is working with Bouvet since 2016 with overall 12+ years of experience. My expertise includes SAP BI HANA/BW4HANA with Buisness objects.Objective of this post is to help scn community with my technical expertise to propose best possible solutions for the SAP BI architects. I will try to write and share further blogs specially on BW/4 hana, BO design studio and Lumira designer.

 

Introduction:

As we know currently there is limitation on GRC data sources and other data sources which enable and support for ODP replication, hence there are lot of SAP standard extractors whose entries does not exist in table ROOSATTR  without a possibility to release the data source using Se38 program RODPS_OS_EXPOSE.

Objective:

Objective of this blog is to explain how to maintain the entries in the se11 table ‘roosattr’ using custom program to enable the ODP data source which can be replicated in BW/4 HANA studio or BW hana studio.

 

Steps followed to achieve the requirement

Step1: Write below  custom ABAP code in SE38 abap editor

 

REPORT ZLAKSHMIKANTH_ODP.

TYPES: gt_char30(30)  TYPE c.

 

DATA: g_s_roosattr   TYPE roosattr,

g_object      TYPE roosattr-OLTPSOURCE,

g_value       TYPE roosattr-EXPOSE_EXTERNAL,

g_subrc       TYPE i.

SELECTION-SCREEN COMMENT  1(60) t_header.

SELECTION-SCREEN END OF LINE.

 

SELECTION-SCREEN BEGIN OF LINE.

PARAMETERS: object   TYPE gt_char30.

SELECTION-SCREEN COMMENT  33(40) t_object FOR FIELD object.

SELECTION-SCREEN END OF LINE.

 

SELECTION-SCREEN BEGIN OF LINE.

PARAMETERS: value    TYPE gt_char30 LOWER CASE.

SELECTION-SCREEN COMMENT  33(40) t_value FOR FIELD value.

SELECTION-SCREEN END OF LINE.

 

SELECTION-SCREEN BEGIN OF LINE.

PARAMETERS: insert   RADIOBUTTON GROUP rad1 DEFAULT ‘X’.

SELECTION-SCREEN COMMENT  5(40) t_insert FOR FIELD insert.

SELECTION-SCREEN END OF LINE.

 

SELECTION-SCREEN BEGIN OF LINE.

PARAMETERS: update   RADIOBUTTON GROUP rad1.

SELECTION-SCREEN COMMENT  5(40) t_update  FOR FIELD update.

SELECTION-SCREEN END OF LINE.

 

SELECTION-SCREEN BEGIN OF LINE.

PARAMETERS: delete   RADIOBUTTON GROUP rad1.

SELECTION-SCREEN COMMENT  5(40) t_delete  FOR FIELD delete.

SELECTION-SCREEN END OF LINE.

 

SELECTION-SCREEN BEGIN OF LINE.

PARAMETERS: ul_case AS CHECKBOX DEFAULT ‘ ‘.

SELECTION-SCREEN COMMENT  5(40) t_ulcase FOR FIELD ul_case.

ENDIF.

 

ENDFORM.                    “reset_buffer

 

Step2: execute the program and provide the data source wish to convert to ODP and provide with X and execute

Step3: Once executed, please check the table ROOSATTR , entry is registered as shown below.

Step4: Login to hana studio, go to BW/4 hana orBW hana modelling, right click the appropriate node and replicate—select the data source from list and finish.

    Hi, thank you for sharing. Do you know about reasons of mentioned limitations?  Why some datasources are hidden anr developer can’t just use RODPS_OS_EXPOSE?

      Hi,

      SAP one of the sap documenation, there are   multiple issues in the past, like a delta extractor not using the RECMODE field which is actually mandatory according to the BW definitions. Hence RODPS_OS_EXPOSE is not supporting for all the list of extractors to enable ODP supported extractors. We have contacted  SAP  for one of the GRC related data source which was not supported for ODP extractions ofcourse our mode of extraction should be full and SAP recommended to maintain  entries  manually in the table ROOSATTR using abap debugger or in client 000 with super user acess.

      Please refer the blog further on this topic.

      https://wiki.scn.sap.com/wiki/display/EIM/Releasing+Extractors+for+use+by+the+ODP+API

      Please refer SAP note 2232584  to get the list of 2232584 – Release of SAP extractors for ODP replication
