Overview

The Operational Data Provisioning (ODP) framework has been greatly enlarged during the last releases of SAP Business Warehouse (BW) and offers new, optimized provisioning capabilities. Together with the SAP Landscape Transformation (SLT) replication server implementation into ODP, fascinating real-time insights are now supported wherever needed. The system which requires the data is the so-called subscriber (consumer). Currently, the following subscriber types are available (depending on release):

 

 SubscribersDescription 
SAP_BW SAP NetWeaver Business Warehouse
BOBJ_DS SAP Business Objects Data Services
TREX_ES SAP NetWeaver Embedded Analytics. Query is defined on transient provider, which is derived from the ODP
RODPS_REPL_TEST Created by executing report RODPS_REPL_TEST (in transaction SE38)
RSODP_ODATA  Open Data Protocol (OData)
HANA_SDI SAP HANA Smart Data Integration

A subscriber is identified by two further components:

  • Subscribers are associated to a system name. The combination type/name identifies the calling system. For BW system name would be e.g. QT6CLNT004, for DataServices the repository name.
  • The subscriber within the system is identified by specifying the subscription (subscriber process). For BW this would be the DTP or Infopackage, for DataServices the Job / DataFlow.

A context represents a source of ODPs. Context identifiers exist for all technologies whose analytical views can be exposed as ODPs. Currently, the following ODP-contexts are available (depending on release):

 Technical NameDescription 
SAPISAP Service Application Programming Interface (S-API) for SAP DataSources / Extractors without Enterprise Search (ESH)
HANASAP HANA Information View 
BW SAP NetWeaver Business Warehouse
SLT~ SAP Landscape Transformation Replication Server
ABAP_CDS  ABAP Core Data Services
ESH  Search and operational analytics (Enables reporting locally without replication of data to data warehouse system. Based on ESH)
BYD SAP Business ByDesign. Data from MDAV (Multidimensional analytical views) can be extracted via ODP. Implemented via SOAP Web Service.

Determination of available contexts in system is done via CL_RODPS_DEFAULT_CONTEXT->GET_CONTEXT_LIST

Find the right component

Knowing the right right component for each issue category can help you find related correction notes and general documentation. In case you need to send customer incident to SAP, logging the incident under the right component helps fasten incident processing by going to the right experts at first. 

  • BC-BW-ODP: Component for data loading using ODP and ODQMON related problems.
