UME Role Required for NetWeaver BPM Development and Testing

During NetWeaver BPM development and testing, we need to deploy the BPM process to the JEE server to test.  Traditionally, we normally give the “Administrator” role to the user so deployment can be successful.  However, giving the “Administrator” role can be quite dangerous.  The user will be able to do much more than just deploying the BPM process.

Unfortunately, a standard role just for the purpose of deploying artifacts to the JEE does not exist.  We will have to create a new role with the appropriate UME actions.  Here are the basic steps in UME:

  1. Create a new role in UME.
  2. Assign the following UME actions to the role:  deploy_action, dc_action, dc_offline_action and auth.all.all.
  3. UMEactions.png

  4. Assign this new role to the user.

      Hello William,

      Thanks for pointing it out for older version of NW, If any one still looking out for standard role just for the purpose of deploying artifacts. Now with sap NetWeaver 7.3 and later there comes standard role consolidating all the above actions which are -

      • SAP_APPLICATION_DEPLOYER
      • SAP_SYSTEM_DEPLOYER


      Which can be safely granted to the developers need to deploy applications or process and here is the Sap Help Link for reference.


      Thanks & Regards

      HI Jeetendra,

      I assigned above roles which fixed the authorization issue but when I am trying to deploy NW BPM from NWDS, I am getting "Deployment failed" error, although "Build" is successful.

      I am attaching error log.

      You may want to check the NWDS version and SP level.  It should match the PO version and SP level.  I ran into deployment errors before when these 2 did not match.

      Thanks William.

      I have PO 7.4  SP5 installed but I do not find any equivalent NWDS . I am using NWDS

      SAP Enhancement Package 1 for SAP NetWeaver Developer Studio 7.3 SP13 PAT0000.

      Can you please suggest which version of NWDS I should use.

      Thanks

      The SP number difference between 7.4 and 7.31 is 5.  Therefore, for 7.4 SP5, it is equivalent to 7.31 SP10.  So, you should use NWDS 7.31 SP 10.

      Hi William,

      I am trying to use Single Sign On feature of PI 7.4.

      When we log in  "Configuration and Monitoring Home" it opens a page and asks for ID and password.

      Question: Which webservice it is calling? Can I get WSDL or that service?

      It seems it is calling a webdynpro, in this case, which webservice that webdynpro is calling?

      I want to use this webservice to call and get the cookie, and I will use this cookie for SSO.

      Thanks

      Sandeep
