Configuring SAP Web DispatcherLocate this document in the navigation structure

The following is to give you an example of how to configure your Web Dispatcher.

  • 1 SAP Web Dispatcher as proxy to map in and outgoing requests for different systems
  • 1 SAP Gateway server (optional if using external gateway)
  • 1 Front-end system

In the example below SAP Web Dispatcher listens at port 443 and transfers:

  • all requests which start with /sap/opu/odata/ to the Gateway system
  • all requests which start with /sap/public/bc or /sap/bc to the front-end system
Note The example given is not complete and must be adapted according to your requirements.

For more information on SAP Web Dispatcher, see Select a release. Under Application Help, open Function-Oriented View and choose Start of the navigation path Application Server Next navigation step Application Server Infrastructure Next navigation step SAP Web Dispatcher End of the navigation path.

Configuration Settings for SAP Web Dispatcher

When configuring the SAP Web Dispatcher define the example values below according to your requirements. To implement your configuration you can copy the source code below and adapt it according to your business requirements.

#https settings 
ssl/ssl_lib = <sapcrypto dll> 
ssl/server_pse = <pse> 
icm/HTTPS/verify_client = 0 
ssl/client_pse = <pse> 
wdisp/ssl_encrypt = 1 
wdisp/ssl_auth = 2 
wdisp/ssl_cred = <pse> 
wdisp/ssl_certhost = <host name> 
icm/HTTPS/forward_ccert_as_header = true
# SAP Web Dispatcher Ports 
icm/server_port_0 = PROT=HTTPS,PORT=443,TIMEOUT=120  

wdisp/system_conflict_resolution = 1 
wdisp/add_clientprotocol_header = 1 
wdisp/handle_webdisp_ap_header = 1 
wdisp/add_xforwardedfor_header = true 
# Configuration for Gateway Server(For example, SAP Business Suite on HANA): 
wdisp/system_0 = SID=<GW SID>, MSHOST=<GW MSHOST>, MSPORT=<GW MSPORT>, SRCSRV=*:443, SRCURL=/sap/opu/odata/  

# Configuration for Front-End Server: 
wdisp/system_1 = SID=<FE SID>, MSHOST=<FE MSHOST>, MSPORT=<FE MSPORT>, SRCSRV=*:433, SRCURL=/sap/public/bc/;/sap/bc/

Note If you want to use the Web GUI applications on the front end servers then you have to append this additional path /sap/public/icmandir/ to the SRCURL of the frontend server.
