I have an Universe created from SAP BW. I can create a Webi report but when I try to create a Deski report it gives me error "You are not authorized to use this Universe in this application".

Is Deski reporting supported for OLAP Based Universe?

Hi SR,

There is a SAP note about this. You can search the note ID in support potal. I pasted the content below.

1204151 - Error: "You're not authorized to use this universe " (Universe name)" using an OLAP universe in Desktop Intelligence


In Desktop Intelligence XI Release 2, when using an OLAP universe, the following error message appears:

"You're not authorized to use this universe " (Universe name)."


Desktop Intelligence XI Release 2 does not support OLAP data sources, either directly or through a universe.


Desktop Intelligence is no longer an option for OLAP reporting. The following options are available going forward with OLAP reporting:

Web Intelligence

Crystal Reports (Static OLAP reporting only)

OLAP Intelligence (Dynamic reports where you have a worksheet where you can slice and dice the OLAP data)

BusinessObjects XI Release Service Pack 2 Productivity Pack. (This includes a new OLAP tool called Voyager. This is a pure Web based application which enables the user to create an OLAP connection in the Central Management Console (CMC). In Java InfoView, you can create a Voyager Workspace which allows you to view the OLAP data.)
