This is the second part of the blog post on how to trigger schedule in SAP BI Platform from BW system.
In the first blog we have looked into the integration steps between SAP BI Platform and BW system, as well as configuring BW event in BI platform. In this blog we will have a walk-through on the process chain creation and configuring SAP BI Platform specific process type in SAP BW system.

Double click on “Trigger Event in BusinessObjects Explorer for BW Data Change”
