Connecting Enterprise portal to SAP MDG - Help please!!!

Hello Experts,

We have activated standard Material data model and also create a custom data model in MDG and tested it using NWBC.

Both worked fine.

However we wish to use EP as front-end instead of NWBC.

Basis team confirmed that ep is connected to MDG system in the back-end (im not sure how to cross check it though!!!).

What should i do to replicate what we see in NWBC to be available in EP.

Is there any document which shows the portal config, for standard and custom data model to be available in EP??

Can anyone please provide me the steps, explaining in detail.

Regards

Eva

    Hi Eva,

    Login with ur id in Portal and check whether you are seeing Create .. search material ..etc menu( Just like how it appears in NWBC).

    If you are not seeing any data then just check whether appropriate roles are assigned to your id.

    Thanks,

    Manisha

    Hi Eva,

    To make MDG work in the Portal you have to use the System Landscape configuration for connecting to your backend that the BASIS team configured for you. It needs to have an alias and when you go to the portal content administration, you have to import the PFCG standard MDG roles to the portal. This would import also the iviews and provide the roles to you in the portal.

    Once this is done, you'll have to have your Portal user account assigned to the MDG role that was just imported (User Administrators do that) and then you'll be able to reach the screens you configured.

    The roles you need to import are SAP_MDGX_MENU for custom objects and SAP_MDGM for Materials.

    Please see the screenshots below for the Portal Content import of the backend roles:

    And during the import you select the Alias for the Landscape System that BASIS configured (connection to backend - in my case K1L)

    Hope that helps 😊

    Regards,

    Boris
