    Hello Sanjana,

    From your message I assume you have been unable to install SAPLink, which is an essential prerequisite to installing zMob.

    The official SAPLink site is here , but as you say, a lot of their site seems to be down at the moment. Another guide can be found on SCN at SAPlink User Documentation - ABAP Development - SCN Wiki and a more visual guide can be found on the ABAPer blog here: SDN ABAPer: How to Install SAPLink

    Once SAPLink is installed, it is trivial to import zMob. To find out some of the pros and cons of zMob, it's worth checking out these pages:

    I hope this helps, and feel free to ask further questions if problems arise.

    Warm regards,

    Jack

      Hello Sanjana,


      There are quite a few non-SAP mobile options - it's worth searching the SCN forums for information on possible approaches..

      Regarding security in zMob, a white-list is configured by the administrator (table zmob_permissions) and contains a list of reports that can be accessed via zMob. One or more non-dialog users are created and used to communicate between the mobile devices and the SAP system (over a secure VPN connection.) The configuration defines which reports are accessible by which user account/device.


      Alternatively, a single non-dialog user can be configured on multiple devices and treated as a usergroup within the white-list. Different device-names can then be configured on each device, which can be used to differentiate users SAP side. This is explained in more detail on the Microbe wiki Home -  microbe -  Introduction, installation, config and running.. -  Mobile microblogging platform for SAP but is quite an advanced topic.

      If you already have a standard SAP report working which has basic input, then it should be straight forward to convert the report to use the zMob approach. It's simply a case of replacing the parameter definitions to use zMob types, tweaking the output to take advantage of the zMob mobile output features, testing within the SAPGUI, then configuring and testing from the emulator and finally the device.


      Warm regards,

      Jack
