Setting a Registration PasswordLocate this document in the navigation structure

Use

Content usage mode: remote role assignment, remote delta link, WSRP application sharing

Applies to: producers

As a security measure, a system administrator of a producer portal can define a password, which the system administrator of a remote consumer portal must enter when registering with your portal. Without the correct password, a consumer portal cannot be registered with your portal, and therefore is not able to access and consume remote content.

Note
  • The password is only needed once (per consumer) at the time of the registration procedure.

  • You can only set one password at a time. In other words, you cannot set a different registration password for each consumer.

  • We recommend you change your password regularly.

    If you change the password, systems that are already registered do not need to register again.

Prerequisites
  • You are authorized to access the portal role containing the Federated Portal workset.

  • You are authorized to use the Permission Editor to assign permissions to the Portal Security Zones.

Procedure

Step 1: Setting a Registration Password

This step is mandatory if from your producer portal you are servicing non-SAP consumers only or both SAP NetWeaver and non-SAP consumers. If your producer portal is servicing SAP NetWeaver consumers only, the procedure is highly recommended, but is mandatory if you have lowered the default assigned permissions or safety level of the security zone for the following portal service: com.sap.portal.ivs.wsrpservice/services/AutoGenProducer1_0

  1. In the portal, navigate to Start of the navigation path System Administration Next navigation step Federated Portal Next navigation step SAP NetWeaver - FPN Connections Next navigation step Control Panel End of the navigation path.

  2. Choose the Connection Options tab.

  3. Select the Remote systems must enter a password to connect to your system checkbox.

  4. In the Password field, enter the password.

  5. Save your changes.

Step 2: Configuring Security Zone Permissions

If your producer portal is providing content to non-SAP consumers only or both SAP NetWeaver and non-SAP consumers, then you must assign the Everyone group to the security zone of the following portal service:

Security Zones/sap.com/NetWeaver.Portal/high_safety/com.sap.portal.ivs.wsrpservice/services/AutoGenProducer1_0

Note

You assign permissions to security zones using the Permission Editor in the same way that you assign permissions to content and folders in the Portal Catalog.

For more information, see Security Zones and Setting Permissions in the Permission Editor .

If your producer portal is servicing SAP NetWeaver consumers only, you can skip this step.

Step 3: Setting Up Users for a Non-SAP Consumer

If your producer portal is providing content to non-SAP consumers, then you also have to create a unique portal user with logon credentials for each non-SAP consumer.
