How to create a jump from WorkFlow to workbook in Analysis with passing the variables

Hello colleagues,

I’d like to continue the topic of my colleague @maksim.alyapyshev on «How to create Fiori Tile opening Analysis for Office for Analytical query» focusing on how to create a jump from WorkFlow to workbook in Analysis with passing the variables.

It’s a simple task, but if you never worked with old SAP BI-IP STS, it will take some time to find a right solution.

Step by step guide:

  1. Create a copy from standard class CL_RSAO_LAUNCHER_HTTP_HANDLER and add a couple lines of code:
    l_t_variables type raso_t_launch_var,
    l_s_variables like line of  l_t_variables.
     when others.
           clear l_s_variables.
            l_s_variables-value = l_s_form-value. "Value
            l_s_variables-name = l_s_form-name. " Technical variable
            l_s_variables-data_source = l_s_form-name. " Alias
            append l_s_variables to l_t_variables.
  2. Go to tr. Sicf and create a copy of standard BSP app analysis:
  3. Now we need to create URL (this step was described in detail by @maksim.alyapyshev). In our case link looks like: http://<server>:<port>/sap/bw/zalalysis?SAP-CLIENT=<client>OBJECT_ID=<WB_technical_name>&OBJECT_TYPE=WBID&APPLICATION=EXCEL&<technical_name_of_variable>=[ver]&<technical_name_of_variable>=[year]&LANGUAGE=RU
  4. We have CDS view (head of document), where user can choose several parameters, such as   Version of budget planning, year, company code etc. with a link to open workbook in Analysis.
  5. We created a custom characteristic for a storage link:
  6. Replace blanks to value of parameters in CDS-view:
      cast ( replace( replace(  replace( replace( _anaapp.url,  '[id]', corrid ), '[ver]', docversion ) , '[year]', gjahr ) , '[bukrs]', bukrs )
       as zebpc_url  )          as detailsurl


I would like to thank my colleague Alexey Goncharov, without whom this article would not have been possible.

Thank you for attention!
