For Q1. 2023:

  1. Under the Data Management workspace.
  2. Click the Information (i) icon beside the Export Jobs section.
  3. Turn on the "Enable Legacy Export" option.
  4. Now the following export options are visible:
    • Export Data To SAP S/4HANA
    • Export Data To OData Services (BW)
    • Export Data To SAP Integrated Business Planning (IBP)

For Q2. 2023 and later versions:

  1. Enable the Enable Legacy Export option first under the Data and Performance tab in the model preferences.
  2. Now the following export options are visible under the Data Management workspace:
    • Export Data To SAP S/4HANA
