Obtaining the External Key of the Provider SystemLocate this document in the navigation structure

While creating the Provider system in the Consumer system, you have to provide/select the SLD Identifier of the SAP system. Follow the steps listed in this section to obtain the SLD Identifier of the SAP system and make a note of this to provide it when required:

  1. On the Provider system, open transaction SOAMANAGER.

  2. Navigate to Start of the navigation path Technical Administration tab Next navigation step Global System Settings End of the navigation path.

  3. If no external identifier is displayed, enter an organization name and business system, and choose Save.

    An external identifier is now generated.

    In previous systems this GUID was not available. If this is the case, you cannot use mass configuration on the consumer side for the services of that system. Proceed as follows:

    1. Enter any unique ID.

    2. Proceed with the configuration of the business scenario. The activation of the scenario fails.

    3. Create the logical ports manually. See section Verifying the logical ports.
