Grant Privileges on SAP for BAPI Sources

If you are going to retrieve data from SAP (i.e. create BAPI data sources), you have to grant access to the following functions, via the authorization object S_RFC, to the user account used by Virtual DataPort to connect to SAP:

  • RFCPING
  • RFC_GET_FUNCTION_INTERFACE
  • DDIF_FIELDINFO_GET
  • SYSTEM_RESET_RFC_SERVER (executed after running the BAPI of a base view)

In addition, grant access to the BAPI invoked by each BAPI base view you create.
