Install R packages

I found that the formattable package is missing on the shared R server.

Is here the right place to demand the installation of additional packages?



  • I have the same issue with choroplethrMaps library required by choroplethr.

    Also it appears that there might some issue with the choroplethr library as well, since I am unable to load it properly

  • Hello Lukas,

    SAC tenants come with an R server that can be used for R visualizations. But it should be noted that R script executing on R sever is completely boxed. Which means it cannot access any resource, connect to any file outside the R server. Many R libraries can support such use-cases, however those kind of scripts will not work in R server that is available with SAC tenants. Choropleth seems to be violating that constraint and hence the issue. For such use-cases customers are recommended to host their own R servers and connect them to SAC tenant. No such restriction would exist in such cases.

    Best Regards

  • Hello Ingo,

    thank you for your answer, but is it possible to demand the installation of packages on the R server hosted by SAC? Should this be done via SAP Customer Influence?
