Key Features

  • Download KPIs, evaluations, and drill-downs

    In case of KPIs, evaluations, and drill-downs, the content is downloaded as a set of csv files and one hdbti file. You can then upload these downloaded files to the HANA repository of the target SAP system.

  • Download analytical privileges and roles

    To download analytical privileges and roles, you create an empty role and assign all the required evaluations to it. You then provide this empty role to the download tool, which in turn generates a set of analyticalprivilege files and one hdbrole file. These files can then be uploaded to the HANA repository of the target SAP system.

Note Note

You cannot download Smart Business associations using this tool. The associations have to be manually created again in the target SAP system.
