Configure the bgRFC Supervisor DestinationLocate this document in the navigation structure


You configure a supervisor destination for the bgRFC to receive the configuration settings for the bgRFC scheduler. In addition, the supervisor starts or stops the schedulers as required.

  • You have created a system user of type B called BGRFCSUPER. Use transaction SU01 to create the system user. This user is used for the bgRFC communication using the destination you will create. For example, BGRFC_SUPERVISOR.

  • You have assigned role SAP_BC_BGRFC_SUPERVISOR to user BGRFCSUPER. Use transaction SU01 to assign role to the user BGRFCSUPER.

  • For SAP NetWeaver 7.0, you have created a bgRFC destination as an ABAP connection, using the RFC destination name BGRFC_SUPERVISOR, without load balancing, target host, SAP Gateway host and service.

    Specify the user, language and password. This ensures that the scheduler is activated on the same application server as the specified user.

    Later, you configure the supervisor destination for the bgRFC to receive the configuration settings for the bgRFC scheduler.


The bgRFC supervisor user you specify must have authorizations from authorization object S_RFC. These are defined in role SAP_BC_BGRFC_SUPERVISOR. The procedure you employ depends on the version of SAP NetWeaver in your system.
