SAP BusinessObjects BI Connector


The Jitterbit Harmony SAP BusinessObjects BI Connector establishes access to SAP BusinessObjects BI.

The SAP BusinessObjects BI connector provides an interface for creating an SAP BusinessObjects BI connection, the foundation used for generating instances of SAP BusinessObjects BI activities. Activities interact with SAP BusinessObjects BI through the connection and are intended to be used as sources (to provide data in an operation) or targets (to consume data in an operation).

The SAP BusinessObjects BI connector is accessed from the design component palette's Connections tab (see Design Component Palette).


This connector can be used only with Private Agents. In addition, it is a Connector SDK-based connector, which may be referred to by Jitterbit when communicating changes made to connectors built with the Connector SDK.
