Standard BW Extractors with SAP S4 HANA
I am Devesh Kapse, SAP BW on HANA consultant at Accenture Solutions. I have worked with SAP BW and BW on HANA implementation, BW and ECC upgrades, S/4 HANA migration, BI ABAP and BO tools.
This Blog is my learning from a S4 HANA migration project where I was responsible for delivery(Adjustment of BW w.r.t. S4 migration & Quality) of BW on HANA 740 system and SLT after migration. I could find very minimal knowledge on the impacted extractors with S4 HANA over the internet and Hence sharing the the learning.
What is the impact of Standard BW extractor with S/4 HANA implementation or ECC to S4 migration?
Wondering on the above question. So here is some learning I had from my last project.
- Before starting the S4 migration, Check the SAP note – 2500202 – S4TWL – BW Extractors in SAP S4 HANA. The note contains the list of BW extractors which are fully supported, Partially supported and obsolete with S/4 HANA. For example Finance data extractor 0FI_GL_10 is Whitelisted with S/4 HANA, this means the data source is fully supported and will work with out any restriction. 0COSTELMNT_ATTR is Not whitelisted, will work but with some restrictions. 0CO_OM_ABC_1 is Not Whitelisted and DS not working – no alternative exists.2LIS_01_S001 is deprecated.
- Before migration Check the underlying tables for the BW data sources, as there are many application (Transparent) tables which are now Views, and for many tables the keys are changed. This may effect the data loads at DSO level and may give you wrong information. for example – the source table FAGLFLEXT, for data source 3FI_GL_L1_TT, is a DB view with S4 with all fields as keys. There may be a situation where at the DSO level, due to changes in Keys, we may not get the unique record or records might over right, resulting in mismatch in totals.
The next Blog will be following –
- SLT Upgrade methods.
- Extraction of S4 CDS views with BW on HANA 740 systems.
