Lo Cockpit Extraction Clarification

Hi Folks,

I have two question on Lo Cockpit & will appreciate if you help me on this.

1. I have to extract data using 2LIS_13_VDITM level extractor. This extractor can be activated in Lo cockpit as well as I also see this extractor in BI delivered extractors under RSA5 under SD application component. I understand that LO is used for extracting the historical data and the setup tables are used and then we can take advantage of different delta types. BUT what is the difference if I activate this extractor in RSA5, replicate into BW and then build dataflow on it. What will I miss using RSA5 rather than Lo Cockpit method. I am not even sure if this is a valid question as I never worked on LO before so please help me clarify this confusion.

2. Also I need to know that once I build my dataflow using Lo Cockpit method in DEV, do I need to initiate set up in QA and then Production accordingly because I was told that we cannot collect & transport it (I highly doubt it) but please advise details that what steps do I need to take in QA and Prod once I am done in DEV side and complete the dataflow with dataload.

I read few manuals on LO but could not find these answers as these are more specific for someone who has done practical hands on the LO dataload project.

I would appreciate your answers to help me out.

Regards

MD

i think you can activate in RSA5, but LBWE permits you to add extra standard fields. there you can also choose the delta method and schedule the V3 update job.

yes, you need to do the setup on all systems again.

Thanks M Tibollo,

When you say "Yes you need to do setup on all systems", That means I have to delete the content of setup tables and then fill the content of setup tables in DEV QA and PROD, all there systems, Pls correct me if I am wrong, thanks for the useful links.

Hi Imran,

Yes you need to delete and fill the setup tables in which systems you want to load the data based on your RFC connection.

obviously you will have RFC connections as below

ECC DEV ----->  BI DEV

ECC QA ------> BI QA

ECC PRD ----> BI PRD

you have to fill the setup tables in the ECC system respect to the SAP BI system.

check the below link

Hi MD,

1)

RSA5 tcode is the place where all the BI content data sources exist.here we will install the BI content data source.

LBWE is the place where we will maintain the LO data source and its properties inorder to extract the data. also if you want to customize the data source you can do it in LBWE.

2) yes you need to perform the deletion and filling of set up tables both in the QA and PROD environments once you transport the DS and data flow in BW.

Keep in mind before performing the set up tables activity in PROD make sure all the users are locked.

Refere to the links provided by Tibollo for detailed information.

Regards

KP
