Free hand SQL in SAP BI 4.3

Hi all,
I’am discovering SAP BI 4.3 and i’am looking for free hand SQL. In 4.2, it was very clear beacause you have 'Select data source/Free-hand SQL. But right now i’am unable to find where is it.
Have any idea?

Thanks for your help.

I would guess the permissions are just not set appropriately for you to select free-hand SQL as a data source.

From within the Central Management Console, go to Users and Groups, right-click on a group, and choose Customization


Then navigate to the Data Source section on the Features tab…

Be sure that “Free-hand SQL” is checked. Here is my corresponding Data Source options look like when creating a new Web Intelligence report with the settings above.


Thanks for your useful answer!
