    Dear Erin,

    Prerequisites for VIRSA Fire Fighter:

    • SAP WAS (Web Application Server) 6.40 SP9 or above with J2EE stack (ABAP

    stack is optional)

    • Java Runtime Environment = JRE version 1.4.02_09 or above

    • Optimum Memory Settings so that no out of memory condition is encountered

    during installation.

    • SAP database must exist.

    • UME must be installed and configured.

    • SAP IGS (Internet Graphics Server) ver. 640 and above.

    SAP GRC Access Control consists of the core Java module as well as one or more RTAs that allow it to communicate to the target application. Where real time isn’t feasible or desired, an offline file extraction (EXT) can be used. One centralized rule set within the GRC repository allows the application to analyze access and authorization risks across the enterprise, for a wide range of enterprise software systems and essential business processes.

    These are some of the SAP NetWeaver components and services used by SAP GRC Access Control:

    • SAP user-management engine component (<b>UME</b>) – Contains user and authorization information for Java applications run ning on the Java application server of SAP NetWeaver. User data (user accounts, authorization, and access data and permis sions) for SAP GRC Access Control comes from the SAP user-manage ment engine, and user access to SAP GRC Access Control is controlled by the user-management engine.

    • SAP NetWeaver <b>Business Intelligence</b> (SAP NetWeaver <b>BI</b>) component – Optionally provides additional reporting functionality that goes beyond the extensive list of built-in reports (ideal for complex custom reporting and analysis)

    • SAP NetWeaver Exchange Infrastructure (SAP NetWeaver XI) component – Optionally provides the Web services infrastructure for applications that could utilize the Web services exposed by SAP NetWeaver

    SAP GRC Access Control uses SAP NetWeaver XI to call Web services of other applications. For example, a customer’s custom and legacy applications may expose Web services to provide user and authorization information that needs to be analyzed for SoD violations.

    Regards,

    Naveen.

    We have FF installed on a BI 7.0 box with no problems so far.

      Hi,

      There is no difference in the installation process. However, the application usage differs from ECC to BI.

      In BI, you may need to restrict on specific authorizations such as BI Workbench, activating business content etc., and also to specific query maintenance.

      I first recommend you to identify the critical tasks/queries and plan implementation of FF (SPM) in BI.

      Regards,

      Raghu

    Hi,

    We are planning to install GRC 5.3 on NetWeaver 7.3 BW ABAP only system. We wanted to use it for firefighter access.


    I thought by installing rta VIRSANH530 I can achieve this but Naveen's response above states that we need JAVA stack as mandatory. Do we really need the java stack here or I can use abap stack and have my work done.


    Please suggest!!


    Thanks
