Updating a Deployed Universe

Objectives

After completing this lesson, you will be able to:

  • Update a Deployed Universe

Universe Retrieval Wizard

To retrieve a published universe, you must have a project in the Local Projects View where the business layer and referenced resources are to be saved.

  1. Start the Retrieve a Published Universe wizard:

    • To retrieve a published universe from a repository, select the project in the Local Projects View, right-click the project, and select Retrieve Universefrom a Repository. You can also retrieve a universe from the repository in the Repository Resources View. Right-click the universe and select Retrieve Universe.

      Note

      By default, the resources are retrieved into the local project. They are secured locally by requiring you to enter the SAP Business Intelligence Platform authentication when opening a retrieved data foundation or business layer. To remove the local security requirement, select the Save for all users check box when selecting the universe in the repository.

    • To retrieve a published universe from a local folder, select the project in the Local Projects View, right-click the project, and select Retrieve Universefrom Local Folder.

  2. Follow the instructions on the wizard pages. For more information about what to do on a particular page, click the Help icon. When the wizard finishes, the business layer and its dependent resources (connections, connection shortcuts, data foundation) are created in the local project and are ready to be edited.

Resource Dependencies

Making changes to a resource, such as deleting it from a local project, moving it to another local project, or updating it, may impact other resources that depend on it. You are warned of the impact before you delete or move a resource.

To help you understand the impact of changes and plan your work, commands exist that show the dependencies between resources and their objects.
