Application Connection for BAPI/RFC Integration

Application Connection for BAPI/RFC Integration

To process BAPI/RFC data in SAP, you must create an application connection of the SAP RFC/BAPI Interface type in the Workflow Manager. The Integration Service uses this connection to connect to SAP and make BAPI/RFC function calls to extract, transform, or load data.
The following table describes the properties that you configure for an SAP RFC/BAPI application connection:
Property
Description
Name
Connection name used by the Workflow Manager.
User Name
SAP user name with authorization on S_DATASET, S_TABU_DIS, S_PROGRAM, and B_BTCH_JOB objects.
To define the user name in the parameter file, enter session parameter $Param
Name
as the user name, and define the value in the session or workflow parameter file. The Integration Service interprets user names that start with $Param as session parameters.
Use Parameter in Password
Indicates the password for the SAP user name is a session parameter, $Param
Name
. Define the password in the workflow or session parameter file, and encrypt it by using the
pmpasswd
CRYPT_DATA option. Default is disabled.
Password

If you want to run a session on 32-bit Linux, and you want to connect to SAP 4.60, enter the password in uppercase. The SAP system must also use uppercase passwords.

file for a connection to a specific SAP application server.
