Procedure documentationCreate RFC Connections to Back-End System


You require two types of RFC connections to the back-end system:

  • An ABAP connection (type 3) which is used for to replicate app descriptors from the back-end server to the front-end server. Applications which use Web Dynpro UI technology carry app descriptors which provide information required to access them from the SAP Fiori launchpad.

  • An HTTP connection (type H), which is used to start transactions using Web Dynpro and retrieve the business data.

Note Note

For technical reasons, you also need these RFC-connections if front-end components and back-end components are running on the same system.

End of the note.

Create an RFC connection of the “ABAP Connection” type and one of the“ H - HTTP connection to ABAP System” type. Use the following naming conventions:

  • ABAP connection: S4FIN_RFC

  • HTTP connection: S4FIN_HTTP or S4FIN_HTTPS

We recommend that you use an HTTPS connection. Set the SSL option to Active.

End of the recommendation.
