      Thanks for your good summary on how to connect and import data from C4C into SAC.
      From SAC product management I would expect to hear about an integration scenario, whereas the data keep sitting in C4C and SAC only gets them via an live integration for reporting.

      Any news on this is very welcome....

      Hi Martin Eberle -

      Live connection to C4C from SAP Analytics Cloud is in our plan but at this stage we will not be able to comment on possible timelines. We will communicate the availability closer to delivery so stay tuned for updates.

      Thanks. Priti

      - SAC Product Management.

      Rouven Ette  One of the pre-requisite for Live connection support in SAC is SAC Embedded in C4C. There has been some progress made towards the embedded direction in last quarters and so this will be useful in achieving live connection from SAC Enterprise. But there is no plan for live connection till H2'2022 and that may be looked after the more complete embedded version support.

      Hi Rafael,


      Thanks for detail blog this helps me to setup connection between C4C and SAC. Although we exposed some design data sources however only ticket and sales quote item is visible in SAC while fetching the model. Others are still not visible in model.

      Please suggest what else configuration we need to do so other design data sources available in SAC.


      Once again thanks such helpful doc.

      Is it possible to consume the C4C Odata API from Data Warehouse Cloud to import the data before exposing them to SAC?
