SAP Portal 7.3 EHP1 Upgrade with BPM and BRM


I have few questions related to SAP Portal 7.3 Ehp1 upgrade from SAP Portal 7.0 EHP1

We are planning to upgrade the two portals from 7.0 EHP1 & CE 7.1 to 7.3 EHP1

Planning to implement


Enterprise Service Repository

Composite Evnironment


Accessing SAP Portal from Mobile and iPads.


If i upgrade my portal 7.0 EHP1 instance to 7.3 EHP1-> by default what are the components will be installed? Like BPM/ BRM & Enterprise Service Repository will be installed by default.


BPM/BRM and & Enterprise Service Repository is a separate installation or add on components on 7.3.

Is the BPM/BRM & Enterprise Service Repository are the separate license from SAP Portal or included licensing?

In lot of documents for example i went through the following article, I got confused with the information which was given

Is the BPM & BRM is not related or included to Portal installation. Is it separate instance or separate installation? or add on components on Portal?

Please clarify the relation between SAP Portal, BPM& BRM and PI installation in SAP 7.3 EHP1 and licensing.

How do we need to install to get the above components? and how the licensing for the above components is separate license or included license which are included in one license?

    please check:

    > Installation

    > Master Guide 7.3

    > Page 38

    At this page u can see the different usage types for 7.3,here are some(all) usage types:

    • AS ABAP (ABAP)
    • AS Java (Java)
    • Adobe Document Services (ADS)
    • Composite Application Framework (CAF)
    • Composition Applications (CA)
    • Composition Environment Platform (CEP)
    • Business Process Management and Business Rules Management (BPM and BRM)
    • Composition Voice (CV)
    • Development Infrastructure (DI)
    • Enterprise Services Repository
    • EP Core - Application Portal (EPC)
    • Enterprise Portal (EP)
    • Process Integration (PI)

    BPM/BRM and & Enterprise Service Repository is a part of 7.3 not at seperate installtion.

    To Run BPM u need also a minimal Poartal installation (for the UWL) to approve or decline tasks.

    So far i know with 7.31 you can use java only (one stack) Process Intergration installation.

    Futhermore 7.31 BPM, BRM, PI, (ESR) are combined at one Plattform (7,31 Java Only stack) and now the name is moved to Process Orchestration which includes all process relevant parts/usage types of NW 7.31.

    And some parts of the BPM functionality can and will be used to define Sytem-Centric.Processes with Message Mapping etc.

    BPM only is designed for User-Centric-Processes (with interaction), but it´s also possible and is normally a standard behviour in SAP BPM to call also a Backend System, for e.g to store Data.

    If u need more Info about BPM/BRM let me know, i hope i can help u a bit.
