Creating the Service User for Communication with ADSLocate this document in the navigation structure

    You must specify this client in the Destination service.

  3. Choose the Logon data tab and assign a password.

    You must specify this password in the Destination service.

  4. Choose the user type Service .
  5. Choose the Role tab and assign a role to the user ADS_AGENT as follows:
    • If AS ABAP and AS Java (with ADS) are installed on the same server (double-stack installation or AS ABAP with Java hub), assign the role SAP_BC_FP_ICF.


    • If AS ABAP and AS Java (with ADS) are installed on different servers, assign the role SAP_BC_FPADS_ICF.


      This distinction is for performance reasons. You may copy the required role first.
