SAP Lumira data retrieving over RFC

Former Member

Dear experts,

Does anybody know whether is possible to retrieve data from SAP ERP not over Infoset but over RFC FM call?

Look - on ERP logon screen we have a Button "Addtional parameters"

There is a field: function module wildcard. Who knows what is it?

I tried filling it with  BAPI_USER_GETLIST - nothing happened actually,.

I just thouht - once Lumira uses SAP JConnector, why can't we retrieve the data not from Infoset but from RFC FM directly?

I've created also a new idea for that. Vote if you like it.

Hi Petr - you could create a universe against the function module, and then use Lumira to report against that - see

Personally, if I were going to report against a function module, I would use the universe - reporting directly against a function module might look complex to an end user in Lumira.

I agree, Tammy,

I forgot to mention - now we speak about the case when we don't have a BI system.

I mean the client used to work in SAP ERP, and the cost of purchasing SAP Lumira is quite lower than BI + BOBJ installation.

So ALV Grid - is the only report tool we have now.

In this case we can build an infoset and to retieve data by using it right now to create a report in Lumira.

However infosets creation is rather more difficult task than RFC FM creation when you already have working logic.

Hi Petr - understood about no BI system.

For ALV reporting, Crystal can use ALV as a datasource (if you are interested)

As for Lumira and the function module, thank you for posting your idea.
