This Blog gives everyone a step by step method of creating a system in a Enterprise Portal 7.1 .This system can then be used in Visual Composer 7.1 for getting the bapi’s.
This is for SAP NetWeaver CE 7.1 SR3.
Adobe SVGView and MSXML Parser on the Client side where Visual Composer is to be run.
Creating a Portal System for BAPI/RFC
First of all you have to decide which system you need. Do you need a “SAP system using dedicated application server” or “SAP system with load balancing”?
If you are not sure, which system do you need then ask your basis administrator. As a rough guide you can say that you use, “SAP system with load balancing” when you have more than one application servers. I think in most cases you have only one application server for your development so you usually use “SAP system using dedicated application server“. I explain the settings for Dedicated Application Server.
Creating a SAP system with dedicated application server for BAPI/RFC
Go to the tab *Configuration Management *> Security >
You can see all the systems on this page.
Click on create.
Fill in the details as follows.
Destination name > It can be any name you want.
Destination type >Select RFC
Select no for load balancing (As we are creating dedicated application server).
The different properties on the page are explained below
Local System Connection
Don’t check this box if your server doesn’t reside on the same system.
SAP System ID (SID)
Here you have to enter your SAP System ID, e.g. for me it was ER1
Here you have to enter the hostname of your gateway server, e.g. for the It is not compulsory to enter this.
Gateway Service</p></td><td><p>Here you have to enter the service name or the port number of the gateway server. This is by SAP default setting sapgw<SAP System ID> <br /><br />You can also have a look into your services file on your machine. If you have a windows machine then the file exists e.g. here C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\services There must be an entry like sapgw<SAP System ID> <br /><br /><br />This entry is also not compulsory.</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Target Host
Here you enter the ip of the system you want to create.You can get this from SAP LOGON for this system.
