SAP Connectors installation
Qlik connectors that are used with SAP NetWeaver on Qlik Cloud are installed and updated automatically. However, the transports are not and need to be installed on the SAP system. If you are using Qlik Data Gateway - Direct Access, SAP NetWeaver RFC SDK needs to be made available on the Qlik Data Gateway - Direct Access machine. For more information, see Installing SAP NetWeaver RFC SDK for Qlik Data Gateway - Direct Access.
Objects, roles, and transports
When extracting data, the connectors use Qlik objects in the SAP system to communicate with the client. These objects are stored in:
/QTQVC/QTDEV_BW for the BW connector
/QTQVC/QTDEV for all others
All objects are unique and prefixed with the reserved name space /QTQVC/. After the objects have been imported in an SAP system, it is possible to import a deletion transport to remove them.
The SAP user ID needs to have a role assigned that includes authorization objects. The provided roles contain the necessary authorization objects, and can be checked by Qlik objects and by standard SAP objects. Using the provided roles is not mandatory. Roles can be copied or modified, and custom roles containing the necessary authorization objects can be used instead.
Objects (such as ABAP programs, function modules, and dictionary objects) are distributed using data extraction transports, and roles are distributed using user profile transports. The transports are imported into the SAP system using the SAP transport management system.
