 ABAP Servers: Setup of Communication

Activities

To set up the connection between the client and the ABAP front-end server, you must make the following settings:

  • Configure HTTP security session management for the ABAP front-end server.

  • Configure the ABAP front-end server to support SSL.

Note Note

If you implement SAP Fiori transactional apps in an internet-facing scenario, we recommend that you deploy SAP Web Dispatcher in a demilitarized zone (DMZ). For more information, see Deployment Options.

End of the note.

To set up the connection between SAP Gateway on your ABAP front-end server and the SAP Business Suite system on your ABAP back-end server, you must make the following settings:

  • Define a trust relationship between the SAP Business Suite back-end system and the SAP Gateway system.

  • Create an RFC destination in the SAP Gateway system to the SAP Business Suite back-end system.

  • Activate SAP Gateway on the ABAP front-end server.

  • Create system aliases for applications.

Note Note

From SAP NetWeaver 7.4 Support Package 6, you can perform setup tasks for SAP Fiori by using task lists that SAP delivers. A task list groups configuration tasks logically and guides you through the necessary tasks.

For an overview of all task lists and tasks for SAP Fiori, see Configuration Using Task Lists.

End of the note.

The following task list applies for this step:

  • SAP_SAP2GATEWAY_TRUSTED_CONFIG

To ensure confidentiality and integrity of data, we recommend protecting HTTP connections by using Transport Layer Security (TLS) or Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). For information about setting up communication encryption for SAP NetWeaver, see the following documentation:
