Creating the Data Source Name

This section describes how to edit the DSN configuration and then authenticate and connect to SAP BusinessObjects BI APIs.

Editing the DSN Configuration

You can use the Microsoft ODBC Data Source Administrator to edit the DSN configuration. Note that the DSN is created during the installation process, as described in Installing the Connector.

Complete the following steps to edit the DSN configuration:

  1. Select Start > Search, and enter ODBC Data Sources in the Search box.
  2. Choose the version of the ODBC Administrator that corresponds to the bitness of your Power BI Desktop installation (32-bit or 64-bit).
  3. Click the System DSN tab.
  4. Select the system data source and click Configure.
  5. Edit the information on the Connection tab and click OK.

Connecting to SAPBusinessObjectsBI

To connect to your SAP BusinessObjects BI instance, you must set the following connection properties:

  • Url: Set this to the SAP BusinessObjects BI rest API URL. After logging into Central Management Console, choose Applications from the combo box.

    After that double click on RESTful Web Service and you'll see the access URL. By default it is, http://{Server-Name}:6405/biprws.

  • User: Set this to the username of your instance.
  • Password: Set this to the password of your instance.
