Browser Access installation for SAP Business One 9.2
A lot of partners can’t wait to test and work with the Browser Access function in SAP Business One 9.2.
The installation is straight forward and simple! It will be explained in this document in a few steps:
The 9.2 version contains the installation files to set-up Browser Access. During an upgrade you can choose to install it directly (then it will be installed on the machine where you executed the upgrade, if that is the database server it doesn’t make sense in a lot of cases) or you can install it on a later moment.
Once your installation is upgraded the shared folder contains as usual a Client folder, in that folder a new component is added: SAP Gatekeeper Installation.
Go to the specific folder and execute the setup.exe. During the installation you will be asked to connect to the SLD. A connection string will be created and will be saved also in the SLD. If you would like to use a certificate, enter it during the installation otherwise a self-signed certificate will be created.
Post Installation Steps:
In the SLD a new tab is added:
The line with Browser Access Server is added automatically when installing it on a Presentation Server. Here you also find the link to access SAP Business One in the Browser.
Per Browser Access server you can setup some parameters, select and click on edit:
The Initial Process Pool Size means the number of client already running in a kind of silent mode, to improve the logon time. (you can see them as active processes on the presentation server even if users aren’t logged on to the system)
The Max. Process Pool Size means the maximum number of clients running on a presentation server.
Details on Web Browser Access/supported Web Browser per version are documented in the recent SAP Business One Platform Support Matrix: Platform Support Matrix for SAP Business One or Platform Support Matrix for SAP Business One, version for SAP HANA.
Use SAP Business One in the Browser:
Open the browser and navigate to the URL listed in the SLD, a verification will happen against the SLD (a pop-up can appear with the message you have to accept the website as trusted). The login screen will appear:
Enter you credentials and click log On, the client will be available in the Browser in a few seconds:
