Request Log (SAP BI Source Editor)

Use the Request Log dialog box to view the events that are logged during the request that is made to the SAP NetWeaver BI system for sample data. This information can be useful if you have to troubleshoot your configuration of the SAP BI source.

To learn more about the SAP BI source component of the Microsoft Connector for SAP BI, see SAP BI Source.

The documentation for the Microsoft Connector for SAP BI assumes familiarity with the SAP NetWeaver BI environment. For more information about SAP NetWeaver BI, or for information about how to configure SAP NetWeaver BI objects and processes, see your SAP documentation.

Extracting data from SAP NetWeaver BI requires additional SAP licensing. Check with SAP to verify these requirements.
