Live Data Connections to SAP S/4HANA

You can create live data connections to SAP S/4HANA systems using the Direct, and Cloud connection types.

You can build stories based on released CDS views or leverage own queries created by you. For list of released CDS views, see CDS Views.
Note
Only CDS Views containing the @Analytics.query: true annotation will appear in SAP Analytics Cloud. A CDS view with this kind of annotation generates a transient query automatically, with the naming convention 2C<sqlViewName>. For more information, see SAP Note 2595552 Information published on SAP site
Prerequisites
Direct Connection
Note
To make the direct live connection available to users on the internet, see Direct Live Connections in the Internet Scenario.

To use this connection type, you must configure Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS) support on your SAP S/4HANA on-premise system.

Cloud Connection
Use this connection type if you want to connect to data on an SAP S/4HANA Cloud Edition or SAP Marketing Cloud system. There are several integration scenarios for creating live data connections:
  1. If you want to create stories in SAP Analytics Cloud using data you have in SAP S/4HANA Cloud Edition, see Live Data Connection to SAP S/4HANA Cloud Edition via OAuth.
  2. If you want to create stories in SAP Analytics Cloud using data you have in SAP S/4HANA Cloud Edition, and then embed stories in your SAP S/4HANA Cloud Edition system, see Integrating SAP Analytics Cloud.
  3. If you want to create stories in SAP Analytics Cloud using data you have in SAP Marketing Cloud, and then embed stories in your SAP Marketing Cloud system, see Integration with SAP Analytics Cloud (1SO).
