Name of the RFC destination:
The name of the RFC destination for an Enterprise Portal should be selected carefully.
The name of the RFC destination is saved in the Information Broadcasting settings. Saving is necessary to be able to uniquely identify the used, connected Enterprise Portal for integration with Knowledge Management.
The broadcast settings can be transported between BW systems. For this reason, the name of the RFC destination should be identical in the source and target systems.
The name recommended by SAP for the RFC destination to the connected portal is SAP_EP.
Select a connection type T for TCP/IP Connection.
Description of the RFC destination
You can maintain the description of the RFC destination language dependently. The language-dependent description is used when publishing iViews from the BEx Web Application Designer and BEx Query Designer if multiple portals are connected to the BW system.
Select Registered Server Program as the activation type.
Registered server program
The server program is set up under the program ID on the J2EE engine. The recommended naming convention is <PORTAL_HOSTNAME>_PORTAL.
Under Gateway Options, enter the gateway host and the gateway service with which the J2EE engine communications with the BW system. The gateway host, an application server for the BW system, and the gateway service can be comprised generically of sapgw<SYSTEM_NUMBER>. You can determine the parameters for the gateway with the Gateway Monitor transaction (transaction code SMGW) using Goto ® Parameter ® Display.
Send SAP logon ticket
The option Send SAP Logon Ticket will be possible from SAP BW 3.5 SP 11 with SAP NetWeaver 04 SP Stack 11. You can avoid the use of the portal user _bw__service by using this option.
