I have gone through the SDN forums for configuring E-Filing GB, couldn’t find any valuable information for configuring the E-Filing.
This blog will help you to configure the E-Filing GB process in XI/PI in detail. E-Filing is the process that enables you to submit and retrieve a specific selection of electronic forms to and from SAP system.
We can download the available SAP Standard Document for E-Filing GB from https://websmp101.sap-ag.de/HRGB
Note: Need to have SAP Service Market Place logon credentials to download the document.
Mainly it has five steps involved in configuring the E-Filing GB
- Ø Setting up connections for R/3 system
- Ø Government Gateway Certificates
- Ø Setting up connections for Government Gateway in XI system
- Ø Downloading the XI contents
- Ø XI/PI Design and Configuration
Step 1: Setting up connections for R/3 system
Please refer this blog How do you activate ABAP Proxies?
Step 2: Need to Import Government Gateway Certificates into XI system
Note: Before importing the certificates into XI system, check whether the government gateway URLs are accessible from your network. If not ask your network team to enable the port for accessing the government gateway sites within your network
b) Create the RFC connections of type G for the following Destinations as mentioned in the SAP Standard Document.
Step 4: Download the XI contents
Start downloading the XI content from SAP Service Market Place, Download all the latest patch for the following contents.
- Ø XI Content E-Filing GB
- Ø XI Content SAP HR 600
- Ø XI Content ERECRUIT 600
Note: We need to download the ERECRUIT because the actions for SAP HR is maintained in the ERECRUIT content
Once the XI contents are downloaded, ask your BASIS team to move the files into following path /sapmnt/XID/global/xi/repository_server/import
XI/PI Design and Configuration
SYSTEM LANDSCAPE DIRECTORY
Ø Need to update the CR Content in SLD with the latest patch available from SMP.
Ø Maintain the Technical system & Business system for R/3.
INTEGRATION BUILDER – Integration Repository
Check whether the objects are imported successfully.
INTEGRATION BUILDER – Integration Directory
Assign BUSINESS SYSTEM for R/3 under service without Party, The BUSINESS SYSTEM is already maintained in SLD.
Note: No need to create any communication channel for BUSINESS SYSTEM, because it is communicating through the CLIENT PROXY.
Use the same BUSINESS SYSTEM for rest of all the scenarios as mentioned in the SAP Standard Document.
E-Filing Outgoing & Incoming Processing
End of Year Filing (EOYR)
In-Year Movements (INMV)
Data Provisioning Service (DPS)
Once all the scenarios are imported & configured successfully, need to activate all the objects.
Before we start the testing, there should be one more settings to be done from the SAP System.
i.e. setting up SAP system to run E-Filing as mention in the document “Incoming & Outgoing Processing Implementation and User Guide”.
Once the settings are done we can start the testing by running the reports for Incoming & Outgoing Process as mentioned in the Document.
I hope this blog will help you to configure the E-Filing GB successfully.
