This section explains what server settings can be changed for the ERP MA. Server settings can be modified through the ERP MA Configuration Tool.
The ERP MA Configuration Tool contains a page to configure the following Server Settings
- Format and regional settings
- Password generation rule
- Function discovery options
The Server Settings should be configured based on your SAP Server (not your FIM server).To display the Server Settings page, select File > Server settings from the main window.
Format and regional settings
At ERP MA runtime, the SAP R3 server expects date time data to be passed in a region specific format when sending date/time information in RFC calls. Format and regional settings include:
- Character set code page - The code page used
by the SAP server. Set the ERP MA code page to be in sync with the
SAP R3 server code page. This is particularly important if you are
using paginated imports where character searches are sent to the
- DateTime - The date and time format used by
the SAP Server.
- RTimeZone - Used when the ERP MA needs to
calculate the SAP R3 local time. The time-zone is an important
settings if you are running delta imports.
Password generation rule
Some create functions (i.e. as is the case for BAPI_USER_CREATE) won't allow you to create a new object in SAP if a password is not supplied. For this purposes, a temporary password must be supplied so that the object can be created. After which, FIM will issue a set password command where a valid password will be set.
By default, passwords in SAP observes a set of rules. This password generation option on the server-settings dialog, allows you to configure rule the ERP MA uses when creating these objects. To configure a runtime generated password, simply reference the pre-defined alias 'ma.runtimeGeneratedPassword'.
Function discovery options
This page allows you configure the discovery filter used when caching RFC. You may also trigger a new discovery cache to be built by checking the option for "Rebuild discovery cache on next restart'.
