After full installation, and before manual configuration, you can run the Configuration Wizard tool to initially set up your Services Registry. This tool saves you time and manual steps. You can use the tool to perform the following tasks:
Configuring a central Services Registry in your system landscape. You should perform this task on SAP NetWeaver systems that connects to the central Services Registry.
Optionally, you can set destinations for the UDDI server and classification service, or register Services Registry in SLD. You should perform this task on SAP NetWeaver systems that serve as a central Services Registry in your landscape.
You have accessed the Configuration Wizard in the following way:
Access the functional unit configuration tool with a browser using the following path: http://[host]:[httpport]/sld/fun
Locate the Services Registry functional unit.
In case it is not displayed, choose Show all Functional Units .
Make sure its status is Enabled .
If its status is Disabled , select the Services Registry functional unit and choose Enable Manually .
Access SAP NetWeaver Administrator using the following address: http://[host]:[port]/nwa
Choose Configuration Wizard .
Configuring a Central Services Registry
On the SAP NetWeaver system that you want to be able to connect to the central Services Registry, Start the Connection Configuration to Central Services Registry task.
Enter the necessary information as follows:
When entering the endpoint URL, it must be in the following format: http://<host>:<port>/ServicesRegistrySiService/ServicesRegistrySiPort
You should set as a central Services Registry only systems with the newest version of Services Registry in your landscape.
When entering a user name, the user account must be available on the AS Java of the central Services Registry and needs to be assigned to certain Services Registry-specific roles. One of the following combinations of user management engine roles should be assigned to this account:
SERVICES_REGISTRY_READ_WRITE and also one of the following: UDDI_TierN or UDDI_Admin
Both SERVICES_REGISTRY_READ_ONLY and UDDI_Tier1
For more information, see Services Registry Roles .
Setting Destinations for the UDDI Server and Classification Service
This is an optional task. You should perform it only if one or more of the following applies:
You use a non-SAP UDDI server.
You have an AS ABAP release in your system environment that is a lower version than 7.0 SP14 (for SAP NetWeaver 7.0 versions) or 7.1 SP04 (for SAP NetWeaver 7.1 and later versions).
Note that setting destinations for the UDDI server and classification service prevents you from using the role-based access control functionality.
On the SAP NetWeaver system that you want to serve as a central Services Registry, start the Services Registry Destinations Creation task and enter the necessary information. When entering a user name, consider that the user account needs to be assigned to the UDDI_Admin and SERVICES_REGISTRY_READ_WRITE roles.
After the functional unit configuration tool finishes successfully, it sets the necessary logical destinations.
Registering Services Registry in SLD
On the SAP NetWeaver system that you want to serve as a central Services Registry, start the Registering Services Registry instance in SLD task and enter the necessary information.
You can access the central Services Registry using the following address: http://<hostname>:<port>/sr_central . Without configuring a central Services Registry this address leads you to the Services Registry on your local AS Java.
