SAP Screen Personas 2.0 Configuration Steps.


Ah After spend lot of days, followed and gone through with lots of blogs, lot of link, without help of Basis Guys.

Finally I am Able to See My own SAP Screen Personas Screen in my local system.

I am providing the all Configuration and Link Information which i have followed to Installed and Configured the SAP Screen Personas in SAP Server.

  1. Download the Personas Installation SAR file from SAP Service Market Place.


SMP->Software Download->Installation & Upgrades ->A to Z Index->S->Screen Personas

2.     After Download, unzip the file and go to SAINT T-Code. Install the SAR File in current SAP system.

3.     After installation, go to SPRO t-code


     A new Component will be exist under, {AS above screen.}

     SAP Customizing Implementation Guide->Cross-Application Component->SAP Screen Personas

4.     Now first do the Profile Setting, go to RZ10 T-Code, And select Instance Profile in Profile Input Field, And select the current Version.

        Select the Extended Maintenance from the Edit Profile Section.


5.     Go to Changes mode of the selected Profile, and create the below Parameters (if not exist).

    1. icm/HTTP/file_access_0
    2. icm/HTTP/file_access_1
    3. icm/HTTP/file_access_2

And pass the below Value as per above  parameter sequence.

PREFIX=/crossdomain.xml, DOCROOT=$(DIR_ICMAN_ROOT)\crossdomain.xml,CACHECTRL=0



And the same create below parameters also.

  1. login/accept_sso2_ticket     =             1
  2. login/create_sso2_ticket      =             2
  3. icm/HTTPS/verify_client       =             1

6.     After that, save the all setting, system will generate a new version for the selected Profile.

7.     Shutdown the SAP Server.

8.     Create two files, under .. data\icmandir

    1. clientaccesspolicy.xml
    2. crossdomain.xml


  1. clientaccesspolicy.xml




<allow-from http-methods=”*” http-request-headers=”*”>

<domain uri=”http://*“/>

                                 <domain uri=”https://*“/>


                  <!–<allow-from http-methods=”*”>

<domain uri=”http://*“/>

                                 <domain uri=”https://*“/>



<resource path=”/” include-subpaths=”true”/> <!– test –>





  1. crossdomain.xml

<?xml version=”1.0″?>

<!DOCTYPE cross-domain-policy SYSTEM“>


                <site-control permitted-cross-domain-policies=”all”/>

                <allow-access-from domain=”*” secure=”false”/>

                <allow-http-request-headers-from domain=”*” headers=”*” secure=”false”/>


9.     Restart the SAP Server.

10     Go to Maintain Service T-Code (SICF).  Create a new Service; name would be restgui [IF NOT EXIST].


               Note: Compression should be set to Yes value, And also set the GUI Configuration Value as below screen.


11.     Go to Handler List Tab and pass the below class as Handler.



               If CL_HTTP_EXT_ITS_BASIC is not found,


12.     After that Test the restgui Service is working properly.

13.     Then activate the persos_app under default_host->SAP in SICF T-Code.

14.     And also, check the compression value; it should be set to ‘YES’.


15     Also activate the Personas & Personas3 Service.

          Default_host->SAP->BC-> Personas / Perssonas3.  and


16.     The crossdomain.xml & clientaccesspolicy.xml should access through

          a.         http://<host_name>:<Port_no>/ crossdomain.xml

          b.          http://<host_name>:<Port_no>/ clientaccesspolicy.xml

17.   Then go to SPRO T-code to configure the System Information.




18.     Select the Maintain Systems Option, and create a new entry and provide below option in respective fields


          SYSTEM                                                :               SAP System

          Client                                                    :               Provide the Client No

          Group                                                   :               Provide a Group Name for example SAP Personas

          Description                                        :               SAP Peronas

          Connector to SAP System           : ITS (Fix Value )

19.     Save the Setting, then select the created row and double click the ‘SYSTEM SETTING’.

20.     Set the below Property and Values.


    1. Service.Uri                          :               /restgui
    2. Server.Url                           :               https:// <host_name>:<port_No>
    3. Sap.Language                    :               EN


21.     Save the setting and come out from the “Maintain System”.

22.     Select the “Maintain Personas Roles”.


                    If above screen values are not set, create those entries and save.

23.     Then execute the “/PERSOS/ADMIN_UI” T-Code, Select User and Provide the Personas Role and save the Setting for the selected User.


              For me, I have given iPRV Persona as Personas Group. (point 17).Provide the Role and save the setting.

24      After that download the Latest version of Microsoft Silver Light from the below link and install in your system

          Note: without Silver Light, SAP Screen Personas will not execute.

25.       And Finally I am able to execute.

      Hi Krishna,

      Have you install 2.0 or directly installed 3.0.

      Because I have faced the same case, when I have installed 3.0 only.

      Install 2.0 first then go for 3.0.may  be after that you can see the setting information in SPRO.

      Hi Krishna,

      If you got the all functionality in SPRO, than you no need to install 2.0. because you already working in updated one.

      Hi Praveer,

      I have modified the title of your page to "SAP Screen Personas 2.0 Configuration Steps" because the steps your are outlining are only relevant for 2.0 (and caused a few reported incidents).

      SAP Screen Personas 3.0 does not require any configuration in SPRO. All administrative tasks and configurations are available in the SAP Screen Personas 3.0 admin transaction /PERSONAS/ADMIN.

      Could you please also exchange the download picture that is showing 'SAP Personas 3.0" with one showing 'SAP Screen Personas 2.0"

      Hi Tobias,

      Thanks for the updates, though when i have configured, at that time i have installed both SAP persona 2.0 and then 3.0 version, so i though it could be the same for both version.

      I will exchange the picture. Thank you again for updates.
