2538909 - How can I move / copy / transport a model (both transactional and master data) and/or its underlying objects (stories, connections etc) between two systems in SAP Analytics Cloud?

Symptom

  • How can I move / copy / transport a model (both transactional and master data) and/or its underlying objects (stories, connections etc) between two systems in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC)?
  • Can a two system landscape (test / production) in SAP Analytics Cloud be used?

Environment

  • SAP Analytics Cloud

Resolution

  • If you want to have a two system landscape, then two separate systems are required: A production system and a test system.
  • This requires purchasing multiple systems from your SAP Account Manager.
  • There is no automated way to perform transports between two systems (URL's).
  • Use the Deployment option to transports content between two systems.
  • The following video explains how to transport a model and its underlying objects (stories, connections, allocations etc.) from one system (export) to another (import):
  • This functionality serves multiple purposes around content management, backup and change management.

Caution: It is not recommended to use exports to archive content. Content can only be imported in the same version of the application from which it was exported, or the subsequent 2 versions (i.e. current version, current version +1, current version +2). After your system is upgraded again (i.e. current version +3), you cannot import the content.
