SAP Connector configuration

Each of the connectors that comprise the Qlik Connector for use with SAP NetWeaver must be configured separately. Prior to configuring individual connectors, set the port, if necessary, and consider whether the connector will pass through a Message server or a firewall.

Passing through a Message server

Direct setting of the message server port

When creating a new connection through a message server, you can set the port directly through the connection dialog using the System ID / Port parameter. The Port number is of the form 36nn where nn is the system number.

See Using the SAP SQL Connector

Using a Message server on Windows

If passing through a Message server on Windows, an entry may have to be added in the C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\services file. Add sapmsxxx 36nn/tcp, where xxx is the system ID and nn is the system number. If it is the last line in the file, add a new line break after the entry.

Passing through a firewall

If there is a firewall between the connector and the SAP system, port 33nn has to be open (where nn = system number of the SAP system).

After the transports have been installed in the system, configuration of the SAP system must be completed for each of the installed connectors.

 

Predefined roles are included in the user profile transports. The roles can be adjusted to fit specific purposes and needs.

Access authorization

Error handling

Note: Some connectors create more than one log file for the same job.

The log files are located in the log directories for the individual connectors.

QlikView: C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\Custom Data\QvxxxConnector\Log\

Qlik Sense: C:\ProgramData\Qlik\Custom Data\QvxxxConnector\Log\

The xxx represents the connector-specific name, such as QvBexConnector.
