Objectives

After completing this lesson, you will be able to:

  • Define the hands-on changes that need to be made within the buyer accounts on SAP Business Network

System ID Information

Within SAP Business Network, you have the capability to establish connections with multiple external Business Applications on the buyer's side. Each of these business applications is uniquely identified by a System ID, which serves as a distinctive marker within SAP Business Network for routing purposes.

In a 2-system or 3-system Public Cloud landscape, you are required to create a System ID entry within the test SAP Business Network buyer account for the S/4HANA quality environment and another System ID entry within the production SAP Business Network buyer account for the S/4HANA Cloud production instance.

It's essential to ensure that your business applications (e. g. ERP Backend systems) utilize the same System IDs as those you have configured in your buyer account to maintain seamless and consistent integration.

For detailed guidance on locating the System ID within your S/4HANA Cloud instance and the steps to establish the entry in the buyer account, please follow the instructions of the accelerators.

Inside the buyer account you can check the entries under ClickAccount SettingsManage ProfileBusiness Application IDs. Here you will find the overview with the System IDs.
