Component Name :

Exception in SAP Application Integrator occured: Cannot retrieve system object for this alias. System Alias: 'SAP_BW', System ID: 'pcd:portal_content/'. User: 'DEMO', Reason: Access denied (Object(s):

1) Check if system Alias mentioned exists

2) Next check the user mapping for this BW system

3) Then check the permissions for portal content and application.

4) If it doesn't work after this step also, in permissions tab, navigate under the portal content to the system which u have created. Then right click and open permissions. Provide permission for this system specifically. Check if it works. Make sure u also give end user permission.
