Using ABAP Systems as BC and SLD API

Dear all,

I would like to use the directory API to dynamically connect systems to PI. Some of these systems will be ABAP based systems.

I am not sure if it will work to create Business Systems dynamically as they need to be maintained in the SLD. Does anybody have experience with this? I have seen that there is also some SLD API, can it be used for automation of creating Business Systems?

Otherwise, if I decide to treat ABAP systems as BCs instead of BSs - can we still create IDoc_AAE, RFC and Proxy connections for them? Are there any issues with creating ABAP systems as BCs other than less automations for the transport path?

    Hi

    I dnt think so you would be able to create business component for ABAP system.

    As BC's are made in ID while BS are imported in SLD

    Yes. You can.


    Curious to know what you are trying to achieve here.


    Creation of business system/technical systems is a one time activity and it's always good to register all the system in our landscape in SLD which should not take much time.


    even transports should not be a problem. It's just that BC nameĀ  will be same across all the systems.
