Originally, only meant as fix releases, we ended up adding a few new features and enhancements, too.
In this article we would like to briefly introduce these features to you:
A “Remarks” field has been added to make it easier to distinguish between the individual ARP sets. In addition, it is now possible to change the default values centrally in the ABAP Report Parameter Set and save them as a template.
It is, however, still possible to change the centrally set default values within individual jobs, according to what is relevant for the job:
Entries that lead to duplicate key errors are corrected and the failed BDLS job is then automatically restarted.
With large amounts of data, the restore takes a correspondingly long time. Until now, it was not possible to see how far the restore had progressed once the “redirected restore” script had been started. In phase 6510, we have added a new step: "Starting monitoring of database restore".
Here’s an example:
If no explicit user is specified for access to SAP, then a BLUECOPY user is temporarily created for the duration of the job and will be deleted again once the job is finished. Until now, a password generated by BlueCopy has been used here.
From now on, it will also be possible to save a password for this user in the PasswordSafe using the free text role "SAPLOGON". To activate this feature, the command line parameter "SAPLOGINCUSTOMPW=YES" must be set either directly in the job (Expert Settings tab) or in the bsc.config configuration file.
When the SCON table set is activated, in addition to the rest of customizing, the recipient addresses (inbound processing in transaction SCOT) are restored.
Provided that HANA users stored in the PasswordSafe are authorized to do so, BlueCopy will use these stored users to temporary assign EXPORT/IMPORT rights. The new release allows for deactivated users to also be used for this purpose, provided that they, plus an additional user, with USER ADMIN rights are maintained in the PasswordSafe.
Operation using the example of the deactivated user SYSTEM:
On Windows servers the default directory %SystemRoot%\temp is used as WRKDIR and could be changed up to now.
However, it is now possible to use a new parameter "windumpdir" to at least put the DBExport/R3trans dump files on a user-defined directory.
To do this, you need to add the command line parameter windumpdir=<directory for table export dump> to the expert settings in the job itself.
It is also possible to store it centrally as default in the configuration file bsc.config on the BlueCopy server (windumpdir=<directory for table export dump>), then it will apply to all jobs.
As always, we recommend that all customers update to the new release version to take advantage of all the benefits. Important: The update is quick, easy and hassle-free.

Spring offensive: Simultaneous release of two BlueCopy Server versions and a new client (GUI): Everyone who uses SAP Hana will certainly be happy about version 9.4! The prerequisite for using Server V9.4 is the new GUI version 4.1.24, which is backwards compatible, as always.
