SRM-MDM Catalog publication in portal

Hi experts,

Iu2019m facing some difficulties concerning MDM / portal integration. We are implementing SRM-MDM catalog scenario and Iu2019ve already created a catalog in MDM Data Manager. Iu2019ve also set the parameters for the web service definition in SRM system, and assigned the Catalog ID in ppoma_bbp.

However, Iu2019m still not able to access my catalog information in portal. When I try to access my catalog it is necessary to introduce again the logon details and an error message u201CLogon failedu201D is displayed, which is not normal right?

In addition, if I introduce my logon details nothing happens but the error message is changed for a warning message u201CLogon failedu201D. Consequently I cannot access my catalog in portal.

Can someone help me? What might being wrong with my catalog publication?

Many Thanks!

Best regards,

Andreia Nascimento

    Hi Shiv,

    My MDM version is 7.1, which means that we are implementing SRM-MDM Catalog 3.0 right?

    I followed your instructions and I was able to login to UI configuration, without any problem. This means that it must be some problem with web service definitionu2026

    Many thanks for your help guys.

    But even with your recommendations Iu2019m still not able to access my catalog, but now I get a different error message: u201Cerror connection catalog; please contact system adminu201D.

    In addition, I was searching from web services information and found out the following post:

    web-services

    However, Iu2019m not able to access the following link:

    http://yourserver:yourport/wsnavigator

    Maybe there is any problem with web service connection to mdm?

    Many thanks!

    Best regards,

    • Hi,

      That Web Service thread is not related to this. So, don't get confused.

      Check if SAP Note # 1321672 is applicable to you.

      Also, can you post what parameters you have defined in Standard and Integration call structure of Webservice in SRM. That will help.

      Regards,

      Shiv

    Hi,

    Make sure the user which you have defined in SRM web Service should have "Catalog User " Role assigned in MDM, like User1 standard user.

    Also, to Configure SRM-MDM UI, You must have "UI Configuration Manager" Role Assigned, like Master standard user

    Just to make sure it is not because of any version mismatch between MDM server, Connector & Java API, using Following Application link and do a connection test:

    http://<your AS Java host>:<your AS java http
    port>/webdynpro/dispatcher/sap.com/tc~mdm~srmcat~uiutil/Utilities

    Regards,

    Shiv

    Hi,

    If you haven't given the User Name in WEB- SERVICE defined by you, it will ask for Login details.

    Try giving USER say USER1 who is assigned to ROLE Catalog User only.

    You can check the ROLE and corresponding USER's assigned to that role through MDM Console.

    Thanks and Regards,

    Hi,

    Iu2019ve made several tests, defining different users / passwords combinations in Web services. Iu2019ve tried using standard users like User1 with the same result.

    I also create new user with all the roles, which includes Admin, Catalog Content approver, Catalog Manager, Catalog User, External Integration and UI configuration manager and it simply not works.

    Iu2019ve done the connection test and it seems ok..

    Retrieving MDM JAVA API Version

    Admin Version = 7.1.02.05 [Interface CRC=0xd933810e]

    Build Version = 7.1.02.84

    Content Version = 7.1.02.08 [Interface CRC=0x39f6784]

    Meta Version \t= 7.1.02.00 [Interface CRC=0x06b4a577]

    !======================================!

    Building up connection to MDM server 10.15.254.53

    Retreiving MDM server version...

    Version = Version 7.1 (7.1.02.83)

    Do you have any additional suggestion?

    Many thanks!

    Just to make sure, which user must be defined in Web Services? Any which have catalog user role? This user must be created in SRM system?

    MDM server, Connector & Java API versions must be equal?

    Thks!

    • Hi,

      Yes, You can define any user which has "Catalog User" Role defined in MDM in SRM Web Service". and this is not required to have same user in SRM system. You can assign this web service ID as attribute to any SRM user.

      Did you get "Connection Successful Message"?? I couldn't see that in your Trace.. Once you test Connection then you should get message in Green "Connection test was successful".

      Also, Check the following Things and revert with the result:

      1. Is your repository Loaded?

      2. Try to Console through the User which you have defined in Web Service. This will confirm whether User credentials are correct or not.

      Also, let us know which version of SRM you are working with and what is version of your SRM-MDM Catalog.

      Regards,

      Shiv

      Also Check this document (Page no 32 ) and make sure if you have defined other parameters correctly in the web service definition.

    Hi Shiv,

    Yes, the u201Cconnection successful messageu201D was displayed.

    The repository is loaded and I tried to access the Console with the same user defined in Web Service and the credentials are correct.

    We are implementing SRM 7 with PPS. Note that we donu2019t have XI / PI.

    MDM Console version 7.1.02.110

    MDM Import manager 7.1.02.115

    MDM Data Manager 7.1.02.115

    How can I see SRM-MDM Catalog version?

    Thks!

    Regards,

    Andreia

    • Hi,

      SRM-MDM Catalog is a package which contains MDM also (not all components of MDM), So if you have installed MDM which came with this package then you should be fine.. SRM-MDM Catalog 3.0 is based on MDM 7.1 and rest all previous versions were based on MDM 5.5.

      Can you open following link in your web brower and provide MDM server details and user as "Master" (*appropriate password).

      http://<J2eeHost>:<J2ee port>/SRM-MDM/SRM_MDM

      Replace J2ee Host and port with your Java host name and port.

      If you are able to login from here and it opens UI then it means there is some missing in external web service definition in SRM. can you check it and revert with the result.

      Regards,

      Shiv

    Hi,

    Iu2019ve tried to define different parameters. I found out that if I define the parameters in u201CIntegrated call structureu201D I get the following error message:

    u201CError during catalog connection. Please contact system admin.u201D

    If I define the parameters in u201Cstandard call structureu201D I get the u201Clogon failedu201D error message that I had described in the beginning...

    • Hi,

      We just need to define integrated call structure and not the standard call structure. Sorry I didn't check in the system and got little confused. Parameters looks good, but can you try by replacing MDM server host name by IP address. Please check it and revert with the result.

      Regards,

      Shiv

      Also, please let us know the exact version of your MDM server. you can find this by opening console and mounting your MDM server. Now Click on "SAP MDM Server" under console hierarchy in the left pane. It will display your MDM server Version in the Right Pane ("MDM Server" pane)

      Regards,

      Shiv

    Hi Shiv,

    I can now access my catalog without getting those errors, but Iu2019m not able to see the catalog information. Perhaps, there is any configuration problem.

    MDM Server version: 7.1.02.83

    Weu2019re using SRM-MDM Catalog 3.0 SP02

    How can I find information about MDM compatible release / SPs / patchs?

    Many thanks!

    Best regards,

    Andreia Nascimento

    • Hi,

      You have to check the release SAP notes of SRM MDM Catalog to find the compatible MDM release.

      SRM-MDM Catalog 3.0 SP02 Patch 05 is based on MDM 7.1.01.78. and SRM-MDM Catalog 3.0 SP03 patch 01 is based on MDM 7.1.02.83. So this should be version of your SRM-MDM Catalog.

      But as you said, you can access catalog (*not able to see catalog Items), so things looks fine.

      Can you try by removing Masks from your web service definition. if no catalog items are assigned to Mask, then you won't be able to see then on SRM EMP. Just want to make sure it is not because of Mask. please can you remove it from web service definition and revert with the result.

      Regards,

      Shiv
