Type of connections

One of the most frequent activities is to connect SAP sourcing to external systems but how to do this?

In this paper I will show 3 types of very simple connections to:

A) Contract Generator (Wordservice)

B) ABAP system (ERP)

C) Mail (SMTP)

A) Contract Generator

– Log on to in system context with the system user

– In tab system choose “System Properties”

– Edit “Contractgen” property with name “contractgen.serviceurl”

– In field “Value” put the URL

For example: http://<server>/WordService/wordservice.asmx

B) ABAP system

Sometimes we want to connect Sourcing to ECC or other ABAP system in this case just do:

– Log on to in system context with the system user

– In tab system choose “System Properties”

– Edit “odp.doc” property with the name “odp.doc.integration.external_system”

Note: If this property does not exist than create it. The context must be set.

C) Mail

This feature is almost always necessary to implement so just do:

– Log on to in system context with the system user

– In tab system choose “System Properties”

– Edit the following properties:

1. “messaging” with name “messaging.smtp.mailhost” and put in value the server mail name

2. “messaging” with name “messaging.smtp.port” and put in value the server mail port

3. <OPTIONAL> “messaging” with name “messaging.smtp.username” and put in value the user with authorization for connect to server mail

4. <OPTIONAL> “messaging” with name “messaging.smtp.password” and put in value the password for user above for connect to server mail
