SAP Data Warehouse Cloud & SAP BW/4HANA Model Transfer – Part 1

Before we start configuring elements, such as the Data Provisioning Agent, Cloud Connector, and the Tunnel Connection towards our SAP BW/4HANA System, we first of all need to make sure our SAP BW/4 HANA System is updated for the integration with SAP Data Warehouse Cloud and that all the right services have been started.

  • SAP BW/4HANA Versions
    • The Model Transfer is supported with SAP BW/4HANA 2.0 SP07 or higher
    • In case you are on SAP BW/4HANA 2.0 SP01 to SP06, you need to ensure the following notes are being applied to your SAP BW/4HANA system:
      • 2943200
      • 2955277
      • 2714624
      • 2976147
      • 2754328
      • 2840529
      • 2989654
      • 3087696
  • In addition, please make sure that the following service are active and you can use transaction SICF to ensure that
    • /sap/bw/ina/GetCatalog
    • /sap/bw/ina/GetResponse
    • /sap/bw/ina/GetServerInfo
    • /sap/bw/ina/ValueHelp
    • /sap/bw/ina/BatchProcessing
    • /sap/bw/ina/Logoff
    • /sap/bc/ping
    • /sap/bw4


  • Also in your BW/4HANA System open the Customizing (transaction SPRO) and navigate to SAP Gateway > OData Channel > Administration > General Settings >Activate and Maintain Services.
    • Start the Activity
    • Select the service ESH_SEARCH_SRV and ensure its activated


We configured the SAP BW/4HANA system for the Model Transfer and in the next step we need to setup a Tunnel Connection from SAP Analytics Cloud to our SAP BW/4HANA System.


So in case you want to follow the steps along, perhaps sign up for a trial and get a system ready to leverage information from your SAP BW system in combination with SAP Data Warehouse Cloud.
