Deactivate igs with Kernel 7.01 and 7.20

Hello,

I am reading the Note 1636252 (Kernel 720 Upgrade).

It is written to install igs "if you use it".

When I was in Kernel 640, I had deactivated it as I had lots of error messages and it was not used.

But I have not followed the igs evolution in Kernel 7.01.

This is why I have the following questions.

1. How can I know if it is used in my system?

2. What could stop working if it is not running?

3. What should I do to disable it?

3a Do not extract the igs binary files in my kernel?

3b Comment the following in my start profile?

---

Execute_09 = local rm -f $(_IG)

Execute_10 = local ln -s -f $(DIR_EXECUTABLE)/igswd_mt $(_IG)

Start_Program_04 = local $(_SE) -F pf=$(DIR_PROFILE)/BAS_DVEBMGS00_hostname

Start_Program_05 = local $(_IG) -mode=profile pf=$(DIR_PROFILE)$(DIR_SEP)BAS_DVEBMGS00_hostname

IG = ig.sap$(SAPSYSTEMNAME)_$(INSTANCE_NAME)

---

3c 3a and 3b?

Thanks in advance for your answer.

    1. How can I know if it is used in my system?

    transaction RSRT --> IGS Test

    2). transaction SE38 --> Execute the report graphics IGS_CHART_TEST (using your RFC destination on the second screen)

    If the chart is displayed then the test is successful.

    3). transaction SIGS and also be able to check the RFC (run RFC-connection test)

    2. What could stop working if it is not running?

    The Internet Graphics Service (IGS) constitutes the infrastructure to enable the application developers to display graphics in an Internet browser with a minimum of effort. The IGS has been integrated in the different SAP UI technologies from HTML GUI to Web Dynpro ABAP/Java and provides a server architecture where data from an SAP system or another source can be used to generate graphical or non-graphical output.

    Internet Graphics might not display properly

    3. What should I do to disable it?

    3a Do not extract the igs binary files in my kernel?

    3b Comment the following in my start profile?

    *Remove the IGS files from the directory.

    Check the note below: SAP Note Number: 738661

    3a - Yes, you don't need to extract the files

    3b - Yes, comment in start profile.

    Thanks,

    Arjun

      Sorry Benoit, its my bad. Report name is GRAPHICS_IGS_CHART_TEST, try this.

      I guess, you can still able to disable the entries in the profile to stop running IGS.

      Example:

      The IGS is started:

      Start_Program_03 = local $(DIR_INSTANCE)\igs\bin\$(_IGS) ...

      The IGS is not started:

      #Start_Program_03 = local $(DIR_INSTANCE)\igs\bin\$(_IGS) ...

      Thanks,

      Arjun
