SAP BW connectivity issue when using SAP Router

Hello,

We are unable to connect to a SAP BW system that is hosted by SAP. We use a SAP router string (ex: /H/15x.xx.59.xx) along with the Server name/client/instance number  when connecting from SAP GUI.

 

In Power BI, while establishing a connection to the SAP BW instance, we do not see an option to enter the SAP Router string. Has anyone else encountered this issue and/or are aware of the solution, please let us know. 

 

Thanks,

KCR

Hi @kcr,

 

Based on research, currently power bi not support SAP Router string, you can only use the "server", "system number", "client id" to connect.

 

For your issue, you can post this requirement to ideas:

Reference:

Use the SAP BW Connector in Power BI Desktop

Re: SAP BW connectivity issue when using SAP Router

This is not an issue on router but on SAP Router, when SAP System is out your network, you use a SAP Router and in SAP Logon Pad you customize a SAP Router String and it's works, in Power BI BW connector you can't enter this string...
