A number of customers (on SAP BW on HANA 7.4 and above) have reported that, when using "Qlik SAP InfoProvider connector v7.0 (latest release from May 2018)", some InfoProviders are missing in the "select dialog box".
It turned out that, when reading the "InfoProvider metadata from table RSDDTALOC", the content of the table RSDDTALOC can be corrupted for various reasons. There are some recent SAP Notes ( https://launchpad.support.sap.com/#/notes/2610214 or https://launchpad.support.sap.com/#/notes/2512566) that helps to keep the table updated correctly but once the table is corrupted, it is difficult to get it back to contain all InfoProviders.
Qlik SAP InfoProvider connector v7.0
To fix this issue, a patch has been implemented(see attached). This patch removes the dependency to RSDDTALOC
so the customers do not need to alter their SAP environments in any other way than installing this patch. Installation:
- The patch is installed in the SAP BW environment and therefore comes in the form of ‘transport’ files.
- No patch is needed for the Windows-part of the connector.
Please follow the instruction included in the zip file Recommendations:
We recommend all customers (on SAP BW on HANA 7.4 or above
) that are upgrading or installing SAP Connectors package version 7.0 to also install this patch after the original transports have been installed. Note:
The patch will be included in the next release of the SAP Connectors package but there is no information on when the next release will be available for customers.
For any questions around the InfoProvider connector or the patch provided please contact Qlik Support (firstname.lastname@example.org)
