3215713 - How to restore an acquired datasource connection that has been deleted in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC)


In SAP Analytics Cloud, you may accidentally delete a connection for an aquired datasource and want to restore that connection.


  • SAP Analytics Cloud (Enterprise) 2022.1.0

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Delete an acquired data connection


Recreate the connection with the same name and any models / stories that use that connection will find and use the newly created connection.  All import/export jobs will need to be re-created in the models.


If a connection is deleted, all dependencies (Such as import/export jobs and publications) will automatically be permanently and irretreviably deleted. 

In addition, if a tenant restore is done to restore the tenant back to a previous date, it will not be possible to re-create the connection with the same name and it will be necessary to re-create all models and stories that used the deleted connection.
