 Transferring Logon and Connection Data with GRMGLocate this document in the navigation structure


With GRMG scenarios that are delivered by SAP, logon and connection data are part of the GRMG Customizing file, by default; for example, this could be a URL and (depending on the requirements of the GRMG application) also authentication information. Many GRMG applications do not perform additional authentication.

If these basic settings are not sufficient for you, use the component GRMG_RT within your scenarios. You can use the properties of this component to transfer additional connection and authentication data to the scenario outside the GRMG Customizing file.


You can also use the GRMG_RT component to activate runtime measurement for any GRMG scenario (see Measuring the Runtime of Availability Monitoring with GRMG).

Properties of GRMG_RT are only used to create the connection. They are not transferred to the GRMG application.


To transfer additional logon and connection data to a GRMG scenario, proceed as follows:

  1. Start transaction GRMG. The Generic Request and Message Generator screen appears.
  2. Select the desired schema and choose  Edit GRMG Customizing.
  3. The Edit GRMG Customizing screen appears. To transfer additional logon and connection data to the scenario, perform the following commands:
    1. Create a new component by choosing  Append Line.
    2. Enter the following data in the new line:
      Column Entry



      Property Name

      You can set the following properties. If you require more than one property from this list, add a new line for each property:


      The meaning of the properties is indicated in each case by the descriptive name.

      To be able to use the PROXY_LOGON* properties, assign the value X to USE_PROXY_AUTHENTICATION; to be able to use the LOGON* properties, assign the value X to USE_BASIC_AUTHENTICATION.

      Property Value

      Enter the desired value for the respective property.

      Leave the other fields empty.

    3. Save your entries, confirm in the first line that you have entered a new component, and enter any description text on the Component Description screen (it is not displayed in the Alert Monitor).
    4. Confirm the next message, and exit the screen by choosing Exit.

The connection and authentication data that you have specified in the component GRMG_RT will be used from now on for your scenario.
