Connections to ABAP Systems not found in Eclipse

Dear community,

trying to evaluate the "Abap in Eclipse" tools, I encounter the following problem:

Whenever I try to add a new ABAP Project and click on "Browse", I do not see a single connection. This is what I have already tried to solve the problem:

  • copied the saplogon.ini-file to the Eclipse directory
  • created the sys-variable SAPLOGON_DEV_INI to point to this .ini file
  • restarted the system
  • turned on SNC for some of the connection ins saplogon.ini
  • searched the eclipse error log for related errors

None of the above helped. Can anyone please clarify on how and where Eclipse looks for the saplogon.ini-File? Any help would be greatly appreciated - thanks in advance!



P.S.: My configuration:

  • Eclipse Juno
  • most recent version of abap tools, downloaded via update site
  • SAPLogon 7300.1.0.1074, Patchlevel 0
  • various Netweaver-Stacks in the backend, but this should be irrelevant since I don't even see the connections

    Hi Michael,

    the name of the environment variable to specify an alternative location of the saplogon.ini
    file must be SAPLOGON_INI_FILE

      A mix of above mentioned approaches works perfect:

      You can have your saplogon.ini file anywhere, even in the cloud.

      Adding the System-variable you have to be careful:

      It must be a variable you're able to access. If the variable is added in the user's context it probably won't if your administrator adding the var isn't you (or your personal user). To make sure it works in any case it really must be added as SYSTEM variable.
