This source type uses an RFC connection to the BW system to call the BW Data Manager Read Interface to read the data. In the data model an InfoCube is entered as table and the characteristics and key figures as table columns. There is no generation, but the information in the data model is used to call the BW Data Manager Read Interface.
Currently the new source type BWRI supports the comparison of data from BW InfoCubes only. It is possible to use characteristics as key or data fields, but key figures can be used as data fields only. Both characteristics and key figures can be used as context fields.
The following information is required
|RFC Connection||Specify the connection to the BW system|
This source type has a few restriction when it comes to using filters. The source type supports filters on data model and comparison level, but there cannot be both types of filters on the same field as these filters would have to be connected with an AND operator and the BW Data Manager Read Interface offers only one filter range table without this option.
