Business Scenario

  • The odata service is created in one system (ex: development system), and this service has to be accessed in other system (EX: sap gateway system)  .
  • When the development system and the gateway service system are different this process is helpful.

Step-by-Step Procedure


Configuration on SAP NetWeaver Gateway System

This activity needs to be done in the system where software component IW_FND is installed

This Setting has to be done in the system where you have to access the odata service (in my case gateway system)

Create RFC Connection to the SAP Business Suite backend system.

  • In transaction SPRO open the SAP Reference IMG and navigate to: SAP NetWeaver-> Gateway-> OData Channel -> Configuration -> Connection Settings-> SAP NetWeaver Gateway to SAP System-> Manage RFC Destinations -> and click the Activity icon.

2. Manage SAP System Aliases

  • In transaction SPRO open the SAP Reference IMG and navigate to: SAP NetWeaver-> Gateway-> OData Channel -> Configuration -> Connection Settings -> SAP NetWeaver Gateway to SAP System-> Manage SAP System Aliases-> and click the Activity icon.
