Hi,

I am configuring SAP authentication for BusinessObjects. I created a user account for BusinessObjects Enterprise on SAP with Authorization object, field, Value as "BusinessObjects XI Integration for SAP Solution Installation Guide". After add an SAP entitlement system to BusinessObjects Enterprise, I checked that an entitlement system. It show "User CRYSTAL has no RFC authorization for function group SYST." with CRYSTAL is user of SAP.

Please, help me!!!

Thanks

    Hi,

    I finished installation of BusinessObjects XI integration for SAP Solutions components.

    I need to configure integration of SAP and BOE.

    I am using an application server.

    I am still getting the "OWN_LOGICAL_SYSTEM_NOT_DEFINED" error message with role import tab on BOE

    I assigned the authorizations to a user. I created CRYSTAL_ENTITLEMENT Role and assigned it to Crystal user.

    What would you do with issue like this?

    Thanks & Regards

    Hi,

    I assume you created an SAP role with the required authorization and then assigned your user (CRYSTAL) the created role. Can you please check the following on your SAP system:

    Start the transaction PFCG and open the role you created for the BOBJ authentication. Check the User tab. If it has a yellow rectangle or a red circle beside the title then switch to this tab and press the User comparison button. In the new window please select Complete Comparison and wait till the process is completed. You can try then again to see if the roles in your SAP BW system are visible in the SAP authentication panel in the CMC.

      Hi Duypm,

      can you please do the following. Log on your SAP BW server, start the transaction PFCG and open the role your created for your CRYSTAL user for editing ( The guide suggests to name the role CRYSTAL_ENTITLEMENT but this is not a must do. I just assume that you used this name). Please check in the tab Users if the CRYSTAL user is visible there. If not, add it in the list, save your changes and press the User comparison button. Try again to see if your get the error on BOBJ.

      On the other hand if user CRYSTAL is aready visible in the user list then please do the following:

      Switch to the Authorizations tab and press the button Change Authorization Data . Do you see in the next screen an entry called Cross-application Authorization Objects ? If yes is a green trafic light on beside (left side) this entry? If the entry is not present, please press on the Manually button ( + Change Role+ toolbar) and type in S_RFC as authorization object. Then expand the newly added objects until you see the text Authorization Check for RFC Access. Expand also the object at this level and click on the enpty cell beside the Activity entry. Select Execute and proceed to the Entry Name of RFC to be protected. Enter * (Star) here. In the last entry Type of RFC object to be protected select FUGR. Save your changes and generate the profile again. Try now to see if you still get the error on the BOBJ side.

      Hi Duypm,

      can you please post here a list of the authorizations (1st and 2nd level will do) contained in the role (CRYSTAL_ENTITLEMENT?) that you created for the technical BOBJ user (CRYSTAL) in SAP?

      Can you try to logon using the credentials of the CRYSTAL user directly on your SAP BW server using SAPGUI? Do you get any error messages there?

      Can you post the settings you have done in the BOBJ CMC under the SAP authentication panel (all 4 subpanels please) here? No need to post the real hostnames here though.

      Regards,

      Stratos

    Hi,

    What are "Application Server" and "System Number" in SAP entitlement system to BOE. Could you define it for help me???

    I think, it is source of OWN_LOGICAL_SYSTEM_NOT_DEFINED error.!! Do you think so??

    Thanks

      Hi Duypm,

      the application server should be the hostname of the machine, where your SAP BW server is installed on, not the BOBJ server. The system number should be the number assigned to your SAP BW installation. Please check with your SAP Basis administrators about this. You can also extract this information if your SAPLogon.ini containts an entry for the host you want to connect to.

      Please also check the installation guide for the BOBJ integration Kit for SAP Solutions XI 3.1 at page 78. Can you confirm that you have assigned all authorizations as listed in this table?

      Regards,

      Stratos

    • ok. lets clarify some basics here:

      - is this the only system you have configured in the SAP Authentication ? If not - do the others work ?

      - are you using an application server or a message server with logon group ?

      - is the user you are using and entering a dialog user ?

      - Are you still getting the error message with the authorization ?

      - did you assign the authorizations to a user or to a role ?

    Hi,

    I imported role successfully. Now, I need to change the content folder root in tab Option. In BusinessObjects XI Integration for SAP Solution Installation Guide, Step 5 of "to change the content folder root" is "In the BWContent AdministrationWorkbench, expand Enterprise system." How to perform it??

    Thanks
