Executing Integration Suite, managed gateway Configuration Steps

Objectives

After completing this lesson, you will be able to:

  • Prepare the steps for setting up and executing an integration project within SAP Integration Suite, managed gateway, from data preparation to live deployment

Technical Configuration Steps

The following steps have to be performed inside the SAP Integration Suite, managed gateway account.

  1. Basic Data Setup:
    • Before starting your project, gather all the necessary data and resources. This includes information about the system landscape, access credentials, and any relevant documentation.
    • Ensure that you have a clear understanding of the requirements and objectives of the project.
  2. Create an Integration Suite, managed gateway project:
    • In the Integration Suite, managed gateway platform, create a new project. This project will serve as the container for your integration efforts.
    • The initial part involves setting up key project details. To make this easier, a single project setup is used for both the SAP S/4HANA Cloud Quality or Test system and the SAP S/4HANA Cloud Production system, which helps to cut down on the amount of configuration work needed.
  3. Create Connections to your S/4HANA Cloud Instance:
    • Establish connections to your SAP S/4HANA Cloud instance. These connections enable the exchange of data and transactions between your SAP Integration Suite, managed gateway project and your SAP system.
  4. Review the Project Settings and Perform Testing:
    • It's essential to thoroughly test your integration setup before deploying it to a production environment. Create test scenarios and use sample data to validate the integration flows.
    • Debug and troubleshoot any issues that arise during testing to ensure the integration works as expected.
    • Involve the SAP Implementation Services team contact in case feedback is required.
  5. Deploy the Configuration into Production:
    • Once you are confident that your integration setup is working correctly and meeting business requirements, it's time to deploy it into the production environment.
    • Plan a deployment schedule that minimizes disruption to ongoing operations.
    • Monitor the integration in the production environment to ensure its continued reliability and performance.

One Account

It's important to note that there is only one SAP Integration Suite, managed gateway account, which is utilized in both the test and production environments. This streamlined approach offers a significant advantage, facilitating the seamless transfer of configurations from the test to the production environment.

Basic Data Setup

  • Upon your initial login to the Integration Suite, managed gateway, you will be prompted to configure the basic data for the SAP S/4HANA Cloud system. Once this initial setup is complete, you can access your organization's basic data from the main menu.
  • The input of basic data is essential within the connections and plays a crucial role in identifying which of the available integrations are utilized for a specific connection. It is important to ensure that the System ID maintained in this step matches the System ID configuration in both the SAP Business Network buyer account and the SAP S/4HANA Cloud instance.
