SAP Connector Prerequisites¶
Certain prerequisites, as described here, are required to use the SAP Connector for Harmony Design Studio.
Supported SAP Versions¶
An SAP instance using ECC version 6 or later, or SAP S/4HANA on-premises is required.
Supported Harmony Agent Versions¶
Harmony Agents that are version 126.96.36.199 or later are required.
Both Private Agents and Cloud Agents are supported. If Cloud Agents are used, no further configuration is necessary.
If Private Agents are used, they must have certain libraries provided by SAP installed. See SAP Connector Installation.
Beginning with Private Agent version 10.54, Jitterbit's SAP connectors will no longer work until you install these libraries as described in SAP Connector Installation. You can install the libraries prior to upgrading to 10.54 or later to prepare for the upgrade, or you can install them after upgrading to 10.54 or later.
These files persist on post-10.54 Private Agent upgrades, so this process needs to be followed only a single time on each Private Agent machine.
The SAP Connector supports these methods of communicating with SAP:
- Remote Function Calls (RFCs)
- Business Application Programming Interfaces (BAPIs)
- Intermediate Documents (IDocs)
To use outbound IDocs, the Jitterbit SAP Event Listener is required. The Jitterbit SAP Event Listener is a locally installed application that listens for IDocs that are outbound from SAP. Its configuration requires the use of this connector to configure an SAP IDoc Event as part of a Design Studio operation. Once the SAP Event Listener is fully configured, the IDocs that it receives trigger the Design Studio operation.
