I have given new SAP Portal system on NW 7.3 and back end SAP ECC 6.0 ehp 5 for configuration of ESS and MSS as part of HR Renewal 1.0 Feature pack 04 as POC project.In SCN I did not find any step by step procedure document hence this blog could be helpful for new bees

Initially I have started configuration of SSO between NW portal 7.3 and ECC 6 Ehp 5. Later I found ESS and MSS business packages are already installed by basis guy in portal system. But it was not working as expected then I started exploring various options to achieve this.

 

To maintain JCO parameters I did not find webdynpro path in 7.3 portals as it was there in portal 7. Then I came to know that WDA BP is best suitable for my scenario because performance wise ABAP webdynpro are much better than Java webdynpro.

 

Following steps were implemented to configure ESS and MSS on SAP Portal 7.3

 

A) Configure SSO between Portal and ECC

B) Configure SLD on portal

C) Deploy ESS, MSS and Common parts business package on SAP Portal

D) Add ESS and MSS Alias on system object

E) Activate webdynpro Services in SICF

F) Create RFC destination IGS in SM59

G) Activation of Business Function in ECC server

 

A) Configure SSO between Portal and ECC

 

Single sign-on (SSO) is a method of access control that enables a portal user to log in once and gain access to the resources of multiple back end systems without being prompted to log in again (enter Id and password). Lot of discussion threads will be available in http://scn.sap.com so here I am not discussing about configuration procedure and process

 

B) Configure SLD on portal

 

The SLD in SAP Portal is the central source of system landscape information relevant for the management of your software life-cycle.

SLD configuration documents are available in in http://scn.sap.com

 

C) Deploy ESS, MSS and Common parts business package on SAP Portal

You have to download ESS, MSS and Common parts Business packages from service market place.

F) Create RFC destination IGS in SM59

     IGS_RFC_DEST is required for MSS business package. If you use ABAP webdynpro then you have to maintain the RFC destinations in the ECC system to connect the IGS to SAP System. For programe ID you have to maintain IGS.<SID>
