The SAP Integration Suite, managed gateway add-on allows you to send or receive documents from SAP Integration Suite solutions and SAP ERP or SAP S/4HANA (on-premise) systems. This add-on has multiple nodes to enable you to perform the required configuration activities in a sequential manner. In this add-on, you'll typically find nodes for these settings. Regardless of the integration, Global Settings configuration must be configured. In this add-on, you'll typically find nodes for:
- Global Settings
- General Settings
- Application-Specific Settings
Global Settings are the set of configuration activities you need to perform irrespective of the integration of any SAP Ariba solutions, such as Ariba Network Integration, SAP Ariba Strategic Sourcing Solution, or SAP Ariba Procurement Integration.
General settings are the set of configuration activities you need to perform for a specific integration irrespective of the transactions/documents that you are adopting.
Application-specific settings are configured for a specific transaction/document.
When you download add-on from SAP Service Marketplace, a file downloads with the .SAR extension. SAP's add-on Installation Tool (transaction code – SAINT) enables users to install and upgrade add-on directly from their standard SAP System.
There's no need to access the operating system or restart the system. Before installation, several import conditions are checked to ensure that only the add-on that belongs with available SAP system can be installed.
To complete the process, the SAP BASIS administrator simply follows the Instruction Wizard.
