Using the Web Administration InterfaceLocate this document in the navigation structure


You can monitor and administrate the Internet Communication Manager (ICM) using the browser.

The functionality and structure is comparable to the ICM Monitor (transaction SMICM) in AS ABAP.

You do not need the SAP GUI to access the Web administration interface, and you do not have to be logged on to the computer on which the ICM is running. This is how you can administrate the ICM in Java-only systems.


You can also monitor and manage the ICM using command line programs.

More information: Using the Command Line Programs icmon and wdispmon


To manage the ICM from the browser, the Web administration interface must be set up. The procedure is described in Setting Up the Web Administration Interface.

If the ICM was installed using SAPInst, the Web administration interface is already set up. If you click on the ICM from the MMC, you have to identify yourself. If you install it using SAPInst, Web administration user webadm is created by default. The password is the master password assigned in the installation.


SAP recommends you change the password after the installation. You do this in the area menu under Admin Handler.


Enter the URL http(s)://host:admin_port/sap/admin in the browser. Here the host is the computer on which the Web dispatcher or ICM is running and admin_port is the administration port configured with icm/HTTP/admin_<xx>.


For security reasons you should use HTTPS for the administration. If you use HTTP the administrator passwords are transferred unencrypted and can therefore be listened to. It is best to work with client certificates.

When you have logged on, the administration and monitoring interface appears.
