Creating an SAP System User for the TREX Admin Tool (Standalone)Locate this document in the navigation structure


You must create an SAP user that the TREX admin tool (standalone) can use to log on to the SAP system. In addition, the SAP user is required so that the TREX alert server has permission to regularly test and check the RFC configuration. When doing this, the user can have been created in the default client or in another client. In this case, make sure that you enter the associated client for the user during the configuration of the RFC connection in the TREX admin tool.

The TREX admin tool (standalone) is used to configure and monitor TREX. You also use this admin tool to configure the RFC connection between TREX and the ABAP application that is using TREX. To use the TREX admin tool (standalone) to create the RFC destination, the admin tool requires an SAP system user that you create based on the predefined role SAP_BC_TREX_ADMIN. This user then has the authorization required to configure the RFC connection.


For more information about the SAP_BC_TREX_ADMIN role, see SAP Note 766516.
