SAP Convergent Charging 2020 FP0 Installation with HANA 2.0 Database- Part 3- BART Server installation

Introduction:-

This is the third article, I am publishing on the subject of installing SAP Convergent Charging 2020. In part 1 and 2, I have explained the technical details and the Core server installation. In this blog post, I will be explaining the steps to install BART server.

I have shared the links for part 1 and 2 in reference. Please check those before reading this article.

 

Installation Steps:-

 

BART Server can be deployed on:

    • Existing host that already contains other CC services like Core server
    • New host which is dedicated for BART server

 

  • Prerequisites:-

    • Install HANA DB and create a BART DB admin user with below roles and privileges to connect. I took the name of the user as BART. You can select a different user name.

    • Create a service user in Core server and assign below roles. Also assign the security profile as a service user. Again I took the user name as BART. You can create a user with different name.

  • BART System details:-

      • BART SID                     : ABB

 

  • Installation Steps

    • Run SWPM -> SAP Convergent Charging -> Install -> Standard System Installation -> BART Serve
    • Select SID and Mount point
    • Provide master password
    • Select the database/host and update the admin user created in db.

    • Provide CA and SLD details if already setup. You can skip if not already setup.
    • Select the security mode for communication.
    • Select BART server settings
    • Select the encryption level for the connection to Core server
    • Enter the connection parameters for Core server
  • Login to BART Server

    • Create a user in Core server with a role Batch Rating Administrator
    • Go to /usr/sap/bart_tool/bart_tool/bin
    • Run ./bart_tool.sh with <sid>adm user
  • SAP MC status

 

Conclusion:-

  • Completed the BART server installation for CC 2020 with HANA 2.0 database.
  • I will be sharing another blog post of various tools and their usage available in convergent charging.
  • CC can be integrated to S4HANA for rating and charging.
  • You can use convergent Mediation system to collect the raw data from various sources. Mediation then process those and transform it in to CC readable format.
