Step 2 : SDI DP Agent Setup

To exchange variant configuration and pricing data between cloud solution SAP CPQ and the licensee’s local on-premise SAP ERP back end, the SAP Variant Configuration and Pricing provider also comprises SDI Data Provisioning Agent (part of SAP HANA smart data integration). SDI Data Provisioning Agent is an on-premise application that is to be installed and operated locally in the customer’s on-premise landscape.

For data exchange with SAP back-end systems using a third-party runtime database obtained from SAP (such as Microsoft SQL Server, IBM DB2, Oracle), certain restrictions apply according to the applicable on-premise license agreements for the third-party runtime databases. One such restriction is that the licensee may not access these databases directly via systems or technologies that have not been licensed specifically for use with such runtime database. Therefore, the corresponding SDI Data Provisioning Agent LogReader Adapters provided with the SAP Variant Configuration and Pricing provider for SAP CPQ may not be used to directly access, or replicate data from, such third-party runtime databases licensed from SAP. For third-party database licenses not obtained from SAP, please refer to the respective license agreements on the available options for data exchange via direct database accesses.

For more information about interoperability and maintenance rules for Data Provisioning Agent (DP Agent), see SAP Note 2546811 Information published on SAP site.
