1 One and only One portal (1) : Provides access to all systems though your standard Enterprise Portal. Single-Sign-On (2) : Propagates your identity using SAP logon tickets. Navigation, Viewing Documents & Actions (3) Provides a full access to SAP BusinessObjects repository and supports all SAP BusinessObjects document types and actions. Easy to setup : Deploying standard PAR files. 2 3

8 Agenda : Main concepts of the solution
1) Introduction 2) Main concepts of the solution Prerequisites Conceptual Overview: Architecture How to deploy “par” files 3) Runtime components 4) Usage scenarios 5) Take Away, Links, P.A.M, Disclaimer, Q&A

9 Prerequisites Install SAP NetWeaver portal + SAP NetWeaver BW
Configure trust between systems (*) Install SAP BusinessObjects BI4 (*) Configure SAP Authentication and enable SSO(*) Import SAP roles (*) Note: It is recommended to have all servers in the same domain (otherwise you will need to modify some parameters) and always use the fully qualified domain names for your URLs . (*) 1 2 3 4 5 (*) = For more info please refer to the article on SCN Wiki = © SAP BusinessObjects 2010 / Page 9

10 Conceptual Overview: Architecture (1/2)
Logon to Enterprise Portal Login to SAP BusinessObjects through SAP NW EP 8 SAP BW “BW1.domain.com“ BW Roles SAP NW EP “EP1.domain.com EP Roles 2 Trust “SSO” 1 For each of the imported SAP BW Roles, the BI4 system generates an BI4 user group 5 Configure iViews & KM Trust “SSO” SAP BusinessObjects “BI4.domain.com“ BI4 security 3 7 - Install SAP BusinessObjects - Configure SAP authentication 6 Upload Portal Integration - Enabled SSO 4 BI4 user Group BI4 = BW users users SAP NW EP= SAP NetWeaver Enterprise Portal SAP BW = SAP Business Warehouse BI4 = SAP BusinessObjects BI 4

11 Conceptual Overview: Architecture (2/2)
Logon to Enterprise Portal Login to SAP BusinessObjects through SAP NW EP SAP BW “BW1.domain.com“ BW Roles SAP NW EP (J2EE) “EP1.domain.com Web Application Server / J2EE SAP BusinessObjects “BI4.domain.com“ BI Launch Pad Web Application Server / J2EE EP Backend Server BI4.0 Backend Server CMS DB FRS

12 How to deploy BusinessObjects.par
6 Installation of SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise iView Template Deploy the SAP BusinessObjects BI4.0 PAR (Portal Archive) into your portal landscape com.businessobjects.iviews.par Installation with Knowledge Management Deploy the BusinessObjectsKM.par (PAR = Portal Archive) into your portal landscape BusinessObjectsKM.par For more info please refer to the article on SCN Wiki =

13 To upload iView template
Log on to the SAP enterprise Portal Navigate to System Administration < Support Click Portal Runtime

14 To upload iView template
Click Administration Console Click Browse next to the Archive Uploader The master iView is installed by default in the following folder: <Install Dir>/SAP BusinessObjects/SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise XI4.0/warfiles/portlet/iviews The filename is com.sap.businessobjects.iviews.par

15 To upload iView template
Select the File, click Upload After the successful upload, 2 new iViews are available. Uploading the com.sap.businessobjects.iviews.par adds the "SAP BusinessObjects Document List Template" and "SAP BusinessObjects Document Viewer Template" into the list of templates available for creating a new iView from a template.

16 Agenda : Runtime components
1) Introduction 2) Main concept of the solution 3) Runtime components Document List iView Template (New in BI4.0) Document Viewer iView Template (Improved in BI4.0) KM (Same as XI3.1) 4) Usage scenarios 5) Take Away, Links, P.A.M, Disclaimer, Q&A

17 Document List iView Template (1/2)
Single-sign-on support Configure a Document List iView to arbitrarily access any SAP BusinessObjects repository content 1 Define an System Landscape and Alias 3 Select the Alias The document list iView will provide users with many of the same features BI launch pad provides. Users can navigate to all reports they have permissions to view, view personal folders, and browse categories. They can also edit reports, schedule report refreshes or manually refresh reports, search BI content, and set user preferences (if they have appropriate permissions). 2 Create a Document List iView Template based on the Alias

18 Document List iView Template (2/2)
All common SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise client actions: Viewing (Analysis, BI Workspaces, Crystal, Dashboard, Explorer, Web Intelligence) Creating (Analysis, BI Workspaces, Explorer, Web Intelligence) Scheduling (Crystal Reports, Explorer, Web Intelligence) Modifying (Analysis, Explorer, Web Intelligence) Viewing instances (History) (Crystal Reports, Web Intelligence)

19 Document Viewer iView Template (1/2)
Single-sign-on support One unique iView pre-configured for each requested BI4 report & dashboard. Based on CUID No multiple document browsing and no KM actions 1 Define an System Landscape and Alias 3 Select your report from BI LaunchPad into the EP 2 Create a Document Viewer iView Template based on this Alias This is the simplest type of portal component you can create. This iView displays a single report selected by the portal administrator at the time they deploy it. Users will see the report when the iView portal page is displayed. They can navigate within the report normally, but cannot navigate to any other reports unless the default report contains linked reports. The portal page designer or administrator configures the content that is displayed in the iView.

20 Document Viewer iView Template (2/2)
All common SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise client actions: Viewing (Analysis, BI Workspaces, Crystal, Dashboard, Explorer, Web Intelligence) Modifying (Analysis, Explorer, Web Intelligence) Viewing instances (using parameters options) (Crystal Reports, Web Intelligence) 1 2

21 Runtime Components: KM Navigation (1/2)
The KM feature is currently available but this KM feature is in maintenance mode Access all your SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise content: Full support for corporate folders, categories navigation and personal document spaces (Inbox and Personal Folders). View of SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise repository content from KM Navigation iView View of SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise repository content from BI Launch Pad 2 1 Prerequisite: Knowledge Management need to be installed in your portal landscape.

22 Runtime Components: KM Navigation - Client Action (2/2)
All common SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise client actions: Viewing Scheduling (Crystal, Web Intelligence) Modify (Web Intelligence, Voyager) Viewing instances (History) (Web Intelligence, Crystal Reports) Optionally, use KM repository services for adding to Portal Favorites, Send link by ,… Copy, Move, Rating, Delete (Netweaver Portal feature) View of client actions from KM 1 View of SAP BusinessObjects client actions from BI Launch Pad 2

24 Agenda : Usage Scenarios
1) Introduction 2) Runtime components 3) Main concepts of the solution 4) Usage scenarios 5) Take Away, Links, P.A.M, Disclaimer, Q&A

25 Scenarios in BI4 – List iView Versus Viewer iView
EP User accessing arbitrary reports & dashboards. “Viewing, scheduling, creating, save as”; folder/category navigation 1 Use : Document List iView (s) 2 EP User accessing pre-specified reports & dashboards. Only “viewing & analysis” in these docs. Use: Document Viewer iView(s)

26 Scenarios in BI4.0 – Mixed EP Users perform “View & analysis” on displayed object “ (Document Viewer iView) EP Users perform “View, schedule, create, save as; folder navigation”. (Document List iView) User performs SAP BusinessObjects administration – access “SAP BusinessObjects portal apps” (CMC, LCM)

28 Take Away Single-sign-on support.
Easy to setup : only 1 par file to upload New Document List iView : Access the entire BI4 repository. Enhancements in Document Viewer iView : Graphical selection and more customization options available. Enhancements in the Documentation Maintenance: KM integration components going into maintenance mode
