Interfacing to 3rd Party tools from BW

Former Member

I realize Open Hub is the SAP solution to interfacing BW data to 3rd Party tools.

However does anyone see a problem in general with the approach of developing custom web services on the BW box that would be called by a third party tool and in turn return Master Data and ODS objects?

Hi

You can also use direct SQL reads to the BA DB (for ODS only), Also ABAP code.

If you want to manipulate the data (transactional and Master data) you can use BAPI functionality.

In our company we used BAPI to manipulate SD data from a third party tool (Web based) but not on BW.

I see that for each ODS object there are three tables:

1) Active Table

2) ChangeLog

3) Activation Queue

Can someone explain the purpose of these three tables? I thought when a row was in the Active Table, that it was taken from the Activation Queue. However in the Active Table I see a column called /BIC/ZAWARDST and it contains entries such as "COMPLETE", "PENDING", "ERROR".
