System Configuration For BSP iViews in EP

I present here the system configuration that has to be done in System Landscape for the purpose of creating BSP iviews. I’m using SAPGUI for Windows.

Throughout this blog, everything that appears bold are represent the corresponding item in the portal.

The Prerequisites for creating the BSP system are
1. You need a logon id and password for the backend SAP system
2. Connection information of the backend system like server name, port, system id etc.
3. System Administration role (system_admin_role) and User Administration role (user_admin_role) in portal.

Creating a basic System

First, we have to create a basic system. Goto System Administration->System configuration, right click on portal contents in the directory you want the system and from “New” you select the option “system“.

You will get a screen titled “Template Selection” Select “SAP system using dedicated application server”. Click Next.

Next screen will be General Properties. Give a System Name and System ID here. Other values are optional. Click next.

Summary click finish. Now we have created a basic system.

Next, we set all the properties required for creating a BSP System.

Properties to be set:
Remember, there are 5 different properties to be set. They are
A. Connector
B. Web Application Server
C. User Management
D. System Alias under the display drop down box
E. user mapping under the User Administration tab

A. Property: Connector. Enter the following properties

  1. Application Host – Your Gateway
  2. SAP Client – 000(your client number)
  3. SAP System ID – 000(Your System ID)
  4. SAP System Number – 00(Your System Number)
  5. Server Port – 8003
  6. System Type – SAP R/3

Click on Save

B. Property: Web Application Server

  1. Web AS Host Name – gateway:port
  2. Web AS Protocol – http/https

Click on Save

C. Property: User management

  1. Logon Method – UIDPW
  2. User Mapping Type – admin,user

Click on Save

D. Property: System Alias
    Under the drop down display, the system alias property will be present. Enter an alias name and press “Add”. The alias name will be used to address the system after it is created.

E. Property: User Mapping
    User Mapping is important, as it maps the portal user to the corresponding R/3 user, specified under this section.
Under the User Administration tab, select the User Mapping. Search for the user you want the mapping to be done and choose “edit”. Select the system alias name from the drop down and enter the user name and password for the R/3 login.

Now, goto System Administration->System configuration, under the display drop down box, select “Connection Tests”. Choose the check box “Connection Test for Connectors” and choose Test. The test should go through. Else, check the backend connections.
