Is it possible to write data back to BW on HANA via XS ?

Dear experts

In one complex requirement , I was trying to find out if it is possible to use some new features of BWonHANA and write data back to BW database or any table in ABAP dictionary ( and in turn read from that table to merge the data with BW Objects).

Like what we do in case of Integrated Planning where users can come and change some numbers , can we achieve that via XS ?

Hi Anidya,

please distinguish  between the approaches:

a) SAP BW classic, InfoProvider, Metadata Rich Modelling


b)SAP HANA Database native modelling


c)SAP BW hybride modelling

a) not possible to write  to SAP BW InfoObjects/InfoProvider, due to SAP BW metadata SID Generation

a) only possible if You feed in data from a (native) table via upload to a SAP BW InfoObjects/InfoProvider

a) only possible if You use BW IP

a) Reading from BEX easy query possible via SAP Gateway

b)Possible , XS Service, UI5, ODATA, HDBC, any SQL Interface is used

c)Wirte back Yes if

- integration is going up from HANA database to SAP BW classic, InfoProvider, Metadata Rich Model layer, with methods of b)

Best Martin
