How to change/create InfoObjects with RSD1 as of BW 7.5 SP04 on HANA
InfoObject maintenance in the BW Modelling Tools (BW-MT) was made mandatory starting with SAP BW 7.5 SP4 on HANA. Since then it is not possible to maintain/create InfoObjects from the SAP GUI using the transaction RSD1. Displaying though still works.
This change surprised the one or the other as this is the first existing BW object which must be maintained in the BW-MT. Up to now only new objects like Composite Provider and Open ODS Views were only available there.
It was tested under release 7.5 SP04.
