SAP Web Services Connector specifications RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    First of all, I have to say that I do not know about web services, so I'm sorry if this question is not clear.

    I am implementing Web Services connector for SAP.

    I ask the Customer to configure SAP endpoint (I give the documents downloaded from Microsoft Web), but they say that this information is not complete.
    They ask me for a "functional specification" for the endpoint indicating what FIM connector send and what FIM connector expected.

    Is there information about these specification (besides docs with Connector).

  • Hi Juan

    I have implemented a few of FIM projects with SAP SOA and FIM Web Services Connector.

    Well a function specification is just a statement what FIM will do using those web services so it should be straight forward. If you are creating SAP Users and/or assigning Roles to them it should be stated.

    As far as what BAPI functions that would be required to do this depends on your scenario. If you could give a brief of what your scenario is i can provide you with a list of BAPI functions in SAP that those guys need to expose as a web service.

    The EndPoint needs to be created using SAP Trans Code: SOAManager, and the authentication scheme should be http:basic

    The document what Microsoft provides is usually enough for the SAP technical guys.

    some of the functions for SAP User are:






    RH_ACTGROUP_INDEX_GET (for getting all the roles in SAP)

  • Sorry, I do not know about Web Services, so probably I am not understanding your answer.

    (I work with the infraestructure) I install and configure the FIM Portal and FIM Synchronization.

    Could you give me more details (or a link to find more information, I only found 2 Microsoft documents, one for connector and the other for SAP configuration). I gave this document to the SAP Development team in the Customer, but they say that they have no enough information to configure the endpoint. And I do not know what else can I give to them.

    They ask for what the connector send to the endopint and what expect as an answer (this is what they call a functional specification). I thinked that with the documents explanation was enough but not for them. Is there an example with more information (for example, a "generic" case for créate a SAP user) to see how to configure the connector?

    Thanks for your Help.

  • Hi, did you find more information on this?

    I was able to set up the web service on the SAP side but now I get stuck with the BAPIs in the SU_USERS functional group. They are not available to pick as described in the document but they are available on SAP (I've checked that using BAPI Explorer).

    Any help is appreciated.
