2802427 - Environment list is empty when creating a model using BPC Live Data Connection in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC)


While attempting to create a planning model using BPC Live Data Connection the "BPC Environment" is not getting populated or the list is shown as empty.

The Environments and Models are listed when we use the connection type "SAP BPC 10.x for SAP NetWeaver".


  • SAP Analytics Cloud

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to create model
  2. Choose option get Data from a datasource
  3. Select BPC Live Data Connection


BPC NW environments can be of two types, BPC Standard or BPC Embedded.

The SAC connection type "BPC Live Data Connection" is used for creating models based on BPC embedded only, while the "SAP BPC 10.x for SAP NetWeaver" supports BPC Standard only.

For more difference about the BPC Embedded and BPC Standard, please visit the help document here .

  • Cause 1: There are no BPC embedded environments in your BPC system.
  • Cause 2: There are BPC embedded environments in your BPC system but the BPC user used to create the BPC live connection does not have access to the embedded environment.


  • Resolution 1: Use the connection type appropriate to your BPC environment.
  • Resoluton 2: Make sure the BPC user used to create the BPC live connection has access to the embedded environment and model from the BPC web.
    Please check Authorization Objects for Maintaining Data Access Profiles (Embedded only) of the BPC Security Guide and assign RSBPC_ID, RSBPC_ENVM, RSBPC_MODL to the user.
