Configuring External Commands for the Operating System

Users are required to configure and maintain certain commands on the SAP ECC or S/4HANA on-premise, along with the parameters for operating system commands, and associate them with the operating system commands. Parameters must be maintained based on the operating systems you use. This configuration helps you to create, move, or delete the required folders for Master Data files. This is a crucial one-time activity and is a mandatory configuration.​ The step-by-step approach explained below ensures a smooth setup of External Commands and their association with Operating System commands in the SAP ECC or S/4HANA on-premise.

To configure External Commands, follow these steps:​

  1. Using the transaction code SPRO, navigate to Integration with Other SAP Components>Managed Gateway for Spend&Network for Buyer>Master Data Integration>General Settings.
