These tools include strong and proven ABAP lifecycle management on the open Eclipse platform with powerful UI (user interface) capabilities.1 Introduction 1 Introduction ABAP Development Tools for SAP NetWeaver (in short: ABAP Development Tools) is the new ABAP IDE (Integrated Development Environment) built on top of the Eclipse platform.

Providing Roles and User Authorizations 3. 2.0 SP03 or higher (either "Secure LoginClient" or "Enterprise Single Sign-On") for the corresponding platform (either for 32. it requires an authorized user to access the back-end system. Configuring Profile Parameters 2. Enable the Secure Network Communication for the selected system . the user does not need to enter a user ID and password.if not already done. use also the single sign-on (SSO) option for system authentication (if it is available in your SAP NetWeaver system landscape). It includes the completion of the following activities for each back-end system you want to work with: 1. An ABAP project represents a real system connection on the front-end client and. 2.. RECOMMENDATION For the sake of convenience. For more information.com/community/netweaver-sso. Procedure To enable SSO for an ABAP system. Add the relevant ABAP system to the SAP Logon Pad .2 Preparation 2 Preparation The preparation prior to the installation of front-end components includes all steps that you must perform in order to work smoothly with ABAP Development Tools on the ABAP back-end system. Compared with SNC. Establishing Secure Network Communication 2.sap.if not already done. Install the SAP NetWeaver Single Sign-On 1. Prerequisites For security reasons. therefore.

With the standard authentication method. 15 . but can access the specific system directly after the system has checked the validity of the logon ticket. open the Properties page for the ABAP system. however. SSO meets the security requirements for working with ABAP projects even more. 3. see http://scn. you must ensure that the Secure Network Communication (SNC) is implemented for the corresponding system and enabled for the selected system connection.or 64-Bit). developers always work with ABAP projects to access repository objects from back-end systems. Using SSO. In the SAP Logon Pad. the user enters his or her user ID and password at the front-end client to log on to the back-end system.

When you are assigning user authorizations in an ABAP system for access to repository objects from within an ABAP project. in turn.2 Preparation 2. we strongly recommend using the standard roles (see Table below) and authorization default values that are provided for working with ABAP Development Tools.2 Providing Roles and User Authorizations The assignment of authorizations to back-end system users is based on roles that are predefined in the ABAP system. As system administrator. Procedure Use the standard SAP roles below as a master copy to assign users of the ABAP Development Tools in your organization. are based – at a technical level – on authorization objects. See also: Reference Documentation for User and Role Administration Standard Roles The table below shows the standard roles that should be assigned to the users of ABAP Development Tools: Role SAP_BC_DWB_ABAPDEVELOPER SAP_BC_DWB_WBDISPLAY Description ABAP developer Display authorization for ABAP developers These standard roles are linked with the following authorization objects that are additionally required for the usage of ABAP Development Tools:   S_ADT_RES: Authroity object for ABAP Development Tool Resource Access S_RFC: Authorization Check for RFC Access ABAP Development Tools uses the following URI prefixes for the authorization object S_ADT_RES:              /sap/bc/adt/abapsource/* /sap/bc/adt/abapunit/* /sap/bc/adt/activation /sap/bc/adt/activation/* /sap/bc/adt/atc/* /sap/bc/adt/checkruns /sap/bc/adt/checkruns/* /sap/bc/adt/compatibility/* /sap/bc/adt/ddic/* /sap/bc/adt/debugger /sap/bc/adt/debugger/* /sap/bc/adt/discovery /sap/bc/adt/docu/* 16 . you will assign to such back-end system users one or multiple roles that.

Select the link node docu and choose Activate Link from the context menu. Repeat the last step for the service ToolsDocu. 7. To test the link to the service. ABAP systems can also issue the more restricted assertion tickets when accessing system services.4 Configuring Profile Parameters In addition to logon tickets. Instead of asking for the password. Repeat the last step for the link item ToolsDocu. choose Test Link from the context menu. Procedure Use the following settings to configure your ABAP system in such a way that it issues the assertion tickets only (without logon). Figure: Activating link to docu service. 6.2 Preparation 5.
