RTA, JCo & Connectors

Hello All,

What is the difference between a JCO, RTA and a connector (in RAR config TAB). Please do let me know the same with relevance to the following scenario:

I have two SAP Development systems, whom I need to connect to one GRC DEV system (with RAR and CUP). In this case, what will be the RTAs, JCOs and connector (in RAR config TAB).

I am facing a lot of issues understanding this is I am a non-basis person but usually encounter these terms while doing the SAP GRC implementation as a security consultant. Kindly help me knowing these a bit better.

    RTA: RTA's are Real Time Agents that you need to install in the backend system. Two RTA's are available i.e. VIRSANHR and VIRSAHR.

    Connector: Connector are used to connect GRC components to your backend system. Under this different kind of connector types are available. Like SAP JCO , SAP Adapter etc. So, JCO is type of connector. Generally SAP recommends to use connector of type SAP Adpater.

    • Hi,

      You are right. But there are few things for connectors:

      1) If you want to use SAP Adaptive type Connectors then you have to defined connectors in SLD. and then you need to create separate connectors for each system in RAR, CUP, ERM and SUP etc.

      2) If you want to use SAP JCO Type connectors then no need to define in SLD. Create directly connectors in all four components for each system.

      I would suggest you to read configuration guide for the same.
