Can ECC and BI system connectors be mapped to same connector group?

Hi All

I understand that it is a good practice to have a connector group for like systems.But just wanted to understand that can I assign ECC and BI system connectors to Connector group SAP_R3_LG?? Will there be any issues??

Coz I earlier did the separate group but SAP advised that for BI they don't have any particular ruleset available.I don't know if it is really true or not.since SAP advised so as a precautionary step I assigned both the system connectors to standard group SAP_R3_LG.

Please let me know your insight on this.

    Hi Pradeep

    What exactly did SAP advise? Did they say go ahead and add them to the SAP_R3_LG or did they just say they don't really have a core ruleset for BW?

    Each component has different transaction codes and authorisations objects (except for core basis stack which they all have). What you consider a risk in ERP may not be a risk in BW.

    For Business Role Management, if you add them to the same group, how do you maintained the role in the two different development systems? In addition, your naming convention for role might have component in it and it's driver from this area.

    There may be other examples but I'd love to hear what SAP actually said? Are you only consider RAR and not CUP or BRM integration?

    • Hi Pradeep

      Connector group is for more than just rule set. if you are only using RAR no problem

      But if you are trying to use business role management the connector groups need to be split since they are referencing different component

      I still think different transactions and authorisations exist in BW and ERP and would have separate groups for that reason.
