To enable users to import connections from the SAP Afaria server, you need to perform the following configuration:

  1. In SAP Afaria server, navigate to Policy→ Edit → iOS Enterprise Application → Configuration
  2. In the view that appears, upload and save the following XML file (in text format):

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
         <connection id="connectionId1">
          <property key ="BOBJ_MOBILE_URL" value = ""/>
          <property key ="BOBJ_MOBILE_CMS_LOCKED" value = "true"/>
          <property key ="BOBJ_MOBILE_CONNECTION_TYPE" value = "Default"/>
          <property key ="BOBJ_MOBILE_AUTH_METHOD" value = "secEnterprise"/>
          <property key ="BOBJ_MOBILE_CMS" value = ""/>
          <property key ="DisplayName" value = "connection name"/>
  3.  For each connection, set the connection properties as shown above. The properties for each connection are the same as in the file on the Configuration server.
  4. After saving this file on the Afaria server configuration, users can import connections from SAP Afaria using the SAP BI for iOS application.

Like Corporate connections, you can create a URL that allows users to create valid connections to the mobile server by using the SAP Mobile Platform (SMP). This means, you prevent users from creating connections manually and thereby, from unintentionally creating invalid connections.

An SMP URL should have this format: sapbi://addconnection?ConnectionType=SUPConnection&Application_ID=MobiApp&Sec_Config=MobiSec&server_url= _Port=5001&SUP_Farm_ID=0
