Design Studio 1.6 on SAP Netweaver Portal

SAP BusinessObjects Design Studio 1.6 on Sap Netweaver Portal.  In the roadmap of SAP we learn that the way to go is to embed your Design Studio app’s to the SAP BusinessObjects BI Platform.  But this is not for all companies directly applicable.  For those who the SAP Netweaver Portal is the only platform avaible, I hope this blog is helpful.

  1. System & versions

    • SAP Netweaver 7.4
    • SAP BW 7.4 SP 15
    • SAP BusinessObjects Design Studio 1.6

  2. Configuration

    • Chapter 5:
    • Note chapter 5.8 Configuring the Report-Report Interface for Analysis Applications!
      • http://:\nwa to go to the Netweaver Administator
      • Restart the design studio Java applications in following order, not only .portal like in the SAP document

  3. Embedding Design Studio app’s on the SAP Netweaver portal

    • Portal Content > ABAP Roles >select or create role > add Iview from template > Design Studio > save > open wizard > add parameter: APPLICATION=”name of your DS app”

  4. Setup of Reporting environment

    1. Design Studio as replacement of the Web Application Template

      This would be the most ideal solution, to change swiftly all the reports to a neat Design Studio interface.  But this is sadly not supported by SAP and also in the future.  SAP is heading only for improvements on the SAP Business Objects BI Platform and will not improve the SAP Netweaver Portal.
    2. Design Studio app’s per Bex Query

      This solution I would recommend not the use.  As it has a high work rate to save manually each Bex Query in a Design Studio app.  Even if you reuse eacht time the same app.  Modifications on the reused app will be needed on  each and everyone saved on the platform.
    3. One App meets all

      The Netweaver Portal embeds one Design studio app, as a portal interface.  Via that app you ‘ll retrieve instantly information and you will be able to jump to all bex queries related to it.  In this case you’ll only have to maintain 1 app.
