Live Data Connections to SAP HANA

You can create live data connections to an SAP HANA system using the Direct, and SAP Cloud Platform connection types.

You must use a supported version of SAP HANA or SAP Cloud Platform (SAPCP). For more information, see System Requirements and Technical Prerequisites.

Connection Timeout

Once a live data connection to SAP HANA is established, SAP HANA is polled every 30 seconds to extend the session. When your connection to SAP HANA has been lost, you will be notified if you are inside a story or a model, and you must refresh the page to re-establish your live data connection.

The 30 second timeout interval can be adjusted by modifying the Remote Session Timeout setting in Start of the navigation path (Main Menu) Next navigation step  System Next navigation step  Administration Next navigation step System ConfigurationEnd of the navigation path.
Note
Setting Remote Session Timeout to 0 disables session timeout.
