by default the User (SAP<SID>USR) which is used to move the data from the primary Database to the SAP IQ Database doesn’t have the necessary permissions to execute the options in Transaction DBACOCKPIT in ABAP.

Note 3123892 – New features for DBACOCKPIT on SAP IQ (TCI for SAP_BASIS release 750 SP11-22 and 753 SP00-SP07)
for SAP Basis 7.56 (BW/4 2021) the new DBACOCKPIT for IQ is part of the SAP Basis 7.56 SP01

please note that with NetWeaver 7.56 the embedded support of IE11 is not supported anymore, and you have to call every SAP WebDynpro from an external Web Browser, e.g. Chrome or Edge.

In newer ABAP System adapt the SICF setting systemloginjs
Note 2900689 – SAPGUI for HTML. WebGUI logon not working on S/4 Hana 1909


activate service systemloginjs with tx. SICF

Furthermore, it is more suitable to move the additional permissions to another user, like already with SAP HANA, called DBACOCKPIT to separate the permissions.

To change the necessary IQ Options mentioned in the following Note, these additional permissions are also mandantory.

Note 3094594 – Enable SAP IQ for DBACOCKPIT
Note 3017355 – SAP IQ 16.1 SP04 PLx – correct SAPIQDB.cfg settings
Note 3119008 – Configure SAP IQ and HANA for SDA/ODBC
Note 3196447 – troubleshooting an existing SAP IQ 16.x Implementation for NLS/DTO and ILM

More Details of the complete SAP IQ Setup can be found in the Document mentioned here:

Transaction DBCOCKPIT is now much better to support SAP IQ for the SAP standard Use Cases and also replace the retired SAP IQ Cockpit based of the Adobe Flash Technology which was stopped by End of 2020.

a extensive SQL- Editor is now available!

SAP IQ Backup Event can be directly created and triggered in the DBACOCKPIT!

Adding DBfile is possible and DBspace with the upcoming Support Packages

The Functionality is available without any restriction with the mentioned SAP Notes above …

no more SAP IQ Monitoring Drama …
