  • Good potential, this Automation Framework. But SAP should make it first usable through https . See .

    This SAP-note came after we had logged an incident that it is not working with https.

    • Valid feedback, it is planned to be solved in BI 4.3, which is not possible with current architecture in BI 4.2.
      The Automation Framework can be used with https, the limitation is only for Task Templates which are using the RESTFul API (currently only WebI change source).


      • Thanks Thomas for your reply. And indeed , for Task Templates (RESTFul API) we wanted it to use, to change , on several hundreds of WEBI-Docs, the universe from .unv to .unx version. And we found that it indeed does not work.

    • Based on your feedback, I have tested on BI 4.2 SP07 and here https is working out of the box. We are currently validating a solution for SP05 & SP06 also.

  • Hi,

    I want to convert Web Intelligence source from UNX to UNX. The documentation for the universe mapping CSV says:

    CSV format (for UNX-UNX): src_cuid,dest_cuid,type

    What value do I use for 'type' please as this is not documented?



    • possible values for type are: unv-unx, unx-bex

      Seems this type is especially important for mapping to BEX Query as you have to specify the additional parameter technical_name.
      It doesn't check if the specified object ID/CUID is a unv or a unx.
      In other words, for unx to unx you still have to specify unv-unx.

      hope this helps,
