This KBA relates to the legacy version LUC 2.x only. It is heavily recommended to upgrade to LUC 3.x for Full Support and for a much simpler deployment process.

The following error occurs in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC) when creating model on universe live connection based on HANA calculation view includeing input parameters:

  • IOLayer Error: Error [IOLayer]: (#2001) Unexpected token { in JSON at position 2

This error will not happen if you create derived table in data foundation while creating the universe.


  • SAP Analytics Cloud 2019.15.15
  • BOE Live Universe Connect (LUC) 2.x 

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Logon to HANA Studio, create new input parameters on the existing HANA calculation view.
  2. Open Information Design Tool, create a new UNX universe on the HANA calculation view.
  3. Logon to SAC tenant, create a new Universe Live connection to the universe.
  4. Create a new model on the connection, after executing live universe query the error happens.

The error will not happen if you create a derived table in data foundation while creating the universe.
