SAP gateway for BOBJ crystal reports

Post by roadwarrior01 » Mon Jul 18, 2011 11:04 am

I'm a newbie in this area, and have taken intro Crystal Reports. We have several that were left in various stages by a contractor, that we want to move from DEV to QA and PRD.

2 issues:

1) When I try to change the database to read ECC QAS data, I get "Connect to SAP gateway failed", an error message indicating "connection to partner 'xxxxxx (our ECC instance port) broken" and a bunch of technical stuff about time, release, component, version etc..

2) when I try to create a new connection for reports, I get "Logon failed. You do not have the necessary rights to design reports agains the SAP system". Is this BOBJ authorization issue, or ECC?

Any comments appreciated, thank you.

There will be transports that needs to be done on the sap side and did you go through the BO100 document which gives a clear step by step idea about transports in the BW/ECC side.
