Easily back up SAP BusinessObjects BI data to SQL Server using the SSIS components for SAP BusinessObjects BI.

Using SQL Server as a backup for critical business data provides an essential safety net against loss. Backing up data to SQL Server enables business users to more easily connect that data with features like reporting, analytics, and more.

This example demonstrates how to use the CData SSIS Tasks for SAP BusinessObjects BI inside of a SQL Server SSIS workflow to transfer SAP BusinessObjects BI data into a Microsoft SQL Server database.

Add the Components

To get started, add a new SAP BusinessObjects BI source and SQL Server ADO.NET destination to a new data flow task.

Create a New Connection Manager

Follow the steps below to save SAP BusinessObjects BI connection properties in a connection manager.

  1. In the Connection Manager window, right-click and then click New Connection. The Add SSIS Connection Manager dialog is displayed.
  2. In the Connection Manager type menu, select SAPBusinessObjectsBI. The CData SAP BusinessObjects BI Connection Manager is displayed.
  3. Configure connection properties.

    To connect to your SAP Business Objects BI instance, you must set the following connection properties:

    • Url: set this to the rest API URL. After logging into the Central Management Console, choose 'Applications' from the combo box. Double-click on 'RESTful Web Service' and you'll see the access URL. By default it is, http://{Server-Name}:6405/biprws.
    • User: set this to the username of your instance.
    • Password: set this to the password of your instance.

Configure the SAP BusinessObjects BI Source

Follow the steps below to specify the query to be used to extract SAP BusinessObjects BI data.

  1. Double-click the SAP BusinessObjects BI source to open the source component editor.
  2. In the Connection Manager menu, select the connection manager previously created.
  3. Specify the query to use for the data extraction. For example: SELECT StoreName, TotalRevenue FROM MyCustomReport WHERE State = 'CA'
  4. Close the SAP BusinessObjects BI Source control and connect it to the ADO.NET Destination.

Configure the SQL Server Destination

Follow the steps below to specify the SQL server table to load the SAP BusinessObjects BI data into.

  1. Open the ADO.NET Destination and add a New Connection. Enter your server and database information here.
  2. In the Data access mode menu, select "table or view".
  3. In the Table Or View menu, select the table or view to populate.
  4. Configure any properties you wish to on the Mappings screen.

Run the Project

You can now run the project. After the SSIS Task has finished executing, your database will be populated with SAP BusinessObjects BI data.
