2 SAP BusinessObjects Global Trade Services Overview
2.1 Introduction to SAP BusinessObjects Global Trade Services
2010-12-13 PUBLIC 15/54
You can use SAP BusinessObjects Global Trade Services as enterprise-wide, centralized application that
enables your company to comply with worldwide trade regulations, communicate electronically with
customs authorities and manage information that is relevant to foreign trade. It provides reporting
features, especially for audits, that enable you to handle changing import and export requirements and
controls. The solution is designed to be integrated with multiple SAP and non-SAP systems in a
heterogeneous environment. It can be implemented without changing your existing logistics processes.
2.2 Software Units of SAP BusinessObjects Global Trade
Services
2.2.1 Application Components
This section can provide information about the most important software components of SAP
BusinessObjects Global Trade Services.

SLL-LEG 900
This component provides the technological prerequisites for complying with worldwide trade
regulations, managing information that is relevant for compliant processes for business
transactions and in foreign trade. This is, for example, when interacting with customs agencies,
producing international shipping documentation, such as commercial invoices, entry summaries,
and pre-clearance notifications, as well as mitigating financial and legal risks in the world of global
trade.

SLL-PI 900_*
You can connect SAP BusinessObjects Global Trade Services to SAP ERP systems starting at the
release of SAP R/3 4.6C using standard interfaces. The plug-in SLL_PI 900_* provides all the technical
functions required for communicating with SAP BusinessObjects Global Trade Services and
integrating the processes.
For the system connection and integration into the logistics processes in SAP ERP you need to
install the plug-in SLL_PI. For the SAP ERP 6.0, for example, you need SLL_PI 900_600. This plug-
in contains all functionality for the system connection with one or more SAP ERP systems as feeder
systems. You can also connect it to several SAP ERP systems of different releases without any
technical problems.
NOTE
You can also connect SAP BusinessObjects Global Trade Services with feeder systems using
standard interfaces for the communication. These can be SAP ERP systems, any other SAP
systems or non-SAP systems.
In addition to these standard software components for running processes of SAP BusinessObjects Global
Trade Services, you can use the software component for Content Lifecycle Management in sanctioned
party list screening of Compliance Management to manage the settings for comparison terms like
delimiters and aliases.
2 SAP BusinessObjects Global Trade Services Overview
2.2 Software Units of SAP BusinessObjects Global Trade Services
16/54 PUBLIC 2010-12-13
The Content Lifecycle Management component aims to support the management of partner content,
providing users with a consistent way to package, version-control, inspect, and import partner content
into their systems. It focuses on the capability to deliver content from vendors landscapes to customers
landscapes and does not provide means to transport content within one single landscape. The latter
capability is already provided by the ABAP transport system.
CLM is available on ABAP 7.3 and ABAP 7.02.
CLM is delivered as a single software component. There are different versions of this software
component available, depending on the version of the target platform.
2.2.2 Technology Components

SAP NetWeaver components
SAP NetWeaver 7.0 including enhancement package 2 provides the technological foundation for
SAP BusinessObjects Global Trade Services 10.0. The ABAP stack of this technological platform is,
in a sense, the operating system of SAP BusinessObjects Global Trade Services 10.0. The JAVA Stack
can be required for special functions in the individual product areas of SAP BusinessObjects Global
Trade Services or for running the delivered user roles in SAP NetWeaver Portal as stated in the
Software Component Matrix as well as in the System Landscape information.

UI Technology
SAP BusinessObjects Global Trade Services supports different technology to use its features and
run its business processes. All UI technologies support the standard roles that SAP BusinessObjects
Global Trade Services provides or that you can administer by using transaction code PFCG.
However, the features for sanctioned party list screening in Compliance Management are available
in two environments: the SAP-GUI-based features that were already available in previous releases
are continued in this new release, and newly developed features that are solely based on Web user
interfaces (Web-UI). In addition, the Web-UI-based maintenance of long-term vendor declarations
in preference processing that can be used for to automize the maintenance of vendor declarations
through direct data input of suppliers is only available in the Web-UI.

SAP GUI
You can use the latest release of the SAP GUI software (such as SAP GUI 7.1) with all previous
SAP component releases. As a result, older SAP systems can also benefit from the features that
are only available in the newer SAP GUI releases. The features of sanctioned party list screening
and preference processing that are Web-UI-based, cannot be displayed by SAP GUI.
RECOMMENDATI ON
We recommend to use SAP GUI 6.40 or higher.

SAP NetWeaver Business Client (NWBC)
The NWBC as a new, desktop-based SAP integration platform provides end users with a
seamless integration of classic SAP GUI-based transactions and new applications developed in
2 SAP BusinessObjects Global Trade Services Overview
2.2 Software Units of SAP BusinessObjects Global Trade Services
2010-12-13 PUBLIC 17/54
Web Dynpro. It allows consumption of application content, and tasks directly from the back-
end systems by using standard roles that you can define using transaction code PFCG. You can
therefore use this technology to run all features of SAP BusinessObjects Global Trade Services
with this technology.

NetWeaver by Key Capability Application Platform by Key Capability ABAP Technology UI Technology
SAP NetWeaver Business Client 1.0 (with PFCG Connection)

SAP NetWeaver Portal
You can access all features of SAP BusinessObjects Global Trade Services in SAP NetWeaver
Portal by generating content for SAP NetWeaver Portal from the standard roles that is delivery
by SAP or adjusted by you using transaction code PFCG.
For more information about generating content from standard roles, see SAP NetWeaver

only, you must use either NWBC or SAP NetWeaver Portal.
2.3 Software Component Matrix
This section provides an overview of which business scenario in SAP BusinessObjects Global Trade
Services uses which software unit. All components are optional depending on the business needs.

TREX and the Platform Availability Matrix on SAP Service Marketplace http://
service.sap.com/pam.
RECOMMENDATI ON
SAP NetWeaver TREX is only relevant for the area of Compliance Management, and is
optional. However, we recommend that you use the SAP NetWeaver TREX for Sanctioned
Party List Screening of Compliance Management in SAP BusinessObjects Global Trade
Services. The search mechanisms use standardized features and algorithms for searching
terms and compare list entities.

SAP NetWeaver Business Intelligence (SAP NetWeaver BI) Content
If you want to analyze your cross-border trade in SAP NetWeaver BI, you need specific content for
SAP BusinessObjects Global Trade Services in addition to the usage type activation for BI of SAP
NetWeaver.

Converter Software
If you use Customs Management and want to communicate electronically with Customs
authorities you need a converter software that maps the standard messages of Customs
Management to the relevant message format required by the authorities.
You must ensure that you always use the mappings and workflows of the converter software that
corresponds to the release of SAP BusinessObjects Global Trade Services.

Business Package for SAP NetWeaver Portal
Before you can use the application user roles that are delivered with the application that you can
use directly or adjust by using transaction code PFCG, you must install the business package
GRC_POR as prerequisite for navigating in these roles. Once you have downloaded a business
package, you must upload the content objects to the portal so that you can use the business package.

Adobe Acrobat Reader
All print forms are available in Adobe print technology. If you want to print documents in SAP
BusinessObjects Global Trade Services, you can only use the document preview after installing
Adobe Acrobat Reader.
In addition, you can use the software component Content Lifecycle Management for the settings of
your comparison terms in sanctioned party list screening of Compliance Management.
Content Lifecycle Management (CLM) aims to support the management of application content. This
is achieved by providing users with a consistent way to package, version-control, inspect, and import
vendor content into their systems. It focuses on the capability to deliver content from vendors
landscapes to customers landscapes.
It is not intended to provide a means to transport content within a single landscape; this is already
facilitated by the ABAP transport system.

Software Component Prerequisites
POASBC version POA_SBC_100_702 SAP_ABA 7.02 SAP_BASIS 7.02
Planning for Content Lifecycle Management
1. Determine the software component and supporting platform versions that are needed to run
Content Lifecycle Management.
2. Identify the managed application system(s) for which content is to be managed using CLM; these
systems are used by CLM for communication during content extraction and content deployment.
3. After identification of CLM and managed application systems; choose either integrated landscape
(in the same system where application is being installed) mode or standalone mode.
4. Identify roles and their activities that will be assigned to CLM users.
5. If you intend to create or import content packages with attachments/supporting files apart from
application content, make sure that CLM is connected to a secured desktop. CLM uses local desktop
for attachments/files upload and download within content packages. Make sure that CLM users
have sufficient authorization to access local files.
2.4 System Landscape
SAP BusinessObjects Global Trade Services runs on SAP NetWeaver technology. This tried and tested,
reliable platform provides scalability and the support of numerous language and country versions. At
the same time, it provides a Web-based infrastructure that can be connected to any application with
open Internet standards.
For scenarios that can be integrated with logistics processes in feeder systems the following landscape
options are possible with SAP BusinessObjects Global Trade Services:

Installation of SAP BusinessObjects Global Trade Services on a separate system

Installation of SAP BusinessObjects Global Trade Services on the same operating system/database
system of another SAP solution, for example, the SAP ERP. Then, SAP BusinessObjects Global
Trade Services must run in a separate client.
CAUTI ON
We strongly recommend that you use a minimal system landscape for test and demo purposes
only. For performance, scalability, high availability, and security reasons, do not use a minimal
system landscape as your production landscape.

Communication with managed applications happens via function calls through RFC destinations of
SAP NetWeaver Application Server ABAP. Such communication channels can be configured for remote
communication. This allows different actual landscapes to be formed.
NOTE
A landscape designed according to the above principles can be used for the business processes
providing content and consuming content. These two business processes can share the same
landscape; however, it must be verified during the design of the landscape that both business
processes can be executed in such a dual-purpose landscape.
SAP BusinessObjects Global Trade Services recommends the simple system landscape with Content
Lifecycle Management.

In addition, you can use the logistics processes in SAP ERP as trigger for the business scenarios in SAP
BusinessObjects Global Trade Services and can implement controls of logistics processes based on
activities in SAP BusinessObjects Global Trade Services. For the process integration with SAP ERP, you
must install the following software component:

SLL_PI 900 in the version for your SAP ERP release.
SAP BusinessObjects Global Trade Services provides plug-ins for the following SAP ERP releases:
SAP ERP release Plug-In Version
SAP R/3 4.6C SLL_PI 900_46C
SAP R/3 4.7 SLL_PI 900_470
mySAP ERP 2004 SLL_PI 900_500
SAP ERP 6.0 SLL_PI 900_600
SAP ERP 6.0, Enhancement Package (EHP) 2 SLL_PI 900_602
SAP ERP 6.0 EHP 3 SLL_PI 900_603
SAP ERP 6.0 EHP 4 and higher SLL_PI 900_604
You can connect SAP BusinessObjects Global Trade Services to SAP ERP systems starting with SAP
R/3 4.6C using standard interfaces. You can also connect it to several SAP ERP systems of different
releases without any technical problems. For the system connection and integration into the
logistics processes in SAP ERP you need to install the plug-in SLL_PI 900_*. This plug-in contains
all functionality for the system connection between SAP ERP and SAP BusinessObjects Global
Trade Services.
There are no technical dependencies between upgrades of SLL_PI and SAP BusinessObjects Global
Trade Services. If you are installing SAP BusinessObjects Global Trade Services with an earlier
release version than the release version of your plug-in version, you can still only use the plug-in
functions for the SAP BusinessObjects Global Trade Services release to which the plug-in version
corresponds although you might have a more current version of SAP BusinessObjects Global Trade
Services installed. They are always described in the corresponding product documentation for the
SAP BusinessObjects Global Trade Services of the installation release.
You can use the available standard interfaces to connect SAP BusinessObjects Global Trade Services
to one or more SAP ERP systems as well as with other SAP Business Suite solutions such as SAP
Supplier Relationship Management (SAP SRM). You can also run SAP BusinessObjects Global
Trade Services in heterogeneous system landscapes because it can be connected to non-SAP
systems. For using transportation data in addition to logistics processes in SAP ERP for running
processes in Customs Management, you can connect SAP Transportation Management with SAP
BusinessObjects Global Trade Services by using SOA service interfaces.

3 Business Scenarios in the Product
Areas of SAP BusinessObjects Global
Trade Services
The business scenarios of SAP BusinessObjects Global Trade Services are contained in the product areas
that are described below. For the business scenarios in all product areas, the same information applies
concerning the following:
Technical System Landscape
The overall system landscape applies to all business scenarios. For more information, see System
Landscape.
Software Units
For information about the required software units for the individual scenarios, as well as the
categorization of the software unit as whether being mandatory or optional for the scenario, see Software
Component Matrix.
Implementation and Upgrade Sequence
For information about the implementation and upgrade sequence, see Overall Implementation Information.
You can use the overall sequences as template for the scenario-specific sequences depending on the
required software units.
RECOMMENDATI ON
For the upgrade using the business scenario Preference Processing, we recommend that you
process the worklist of long-term vendor declaration for customers' purposes before you upgrade
from SAP BusinessObjects Global Trade Services release 7.0 to release 10.0. If necessary, you can
restructure the worklist using the initial transfer in the feeder system.
3.1 Compliance Management
Description
The product area of Compliance Management enables companies to work in compliance with legal
requirements and regulations. By streamlining the extended supply chain, Compliance Management
automates the complicated regulatory compliance process, which is a crucial factor for successful global
trade activities. To comply with the legal requirements, Compliance Management checks and screens
master and transactional data from the logistics processes of the feeder system through integration

between the feeder system and SAP BusinessObjects Global Trade Services. This minimizes the risk of
penalties and fines, maximizes your companys return on global sourcing and selling initiatives, and
increases your overall competitiveness by improving customer satisfaction.
You can use Content Lifecycle Management to manage the creation and distribution of application
content. This is particularly useful if you want to create content packages for a specific application that
are going to be shared with or reused by other instances of the same application, even if they are running
in a different system landscape. For example, consulting companies can create content packages for an
application and distribute this content to their customers. Those customers can merge this new content
with the content currently used in the application.
Content Lifecycle Management covers extraction of content from applications, creation of content
packages for content sharing across system landscapes, editing of extracted content in a spreadsheet
application, detection of differences between content groups, and finally deployment of content to an
application.
The Content Lifecycle Management business scenario is divided into two business processes:

Providing Content: Used by vendors and content authors to provide and distribute application
content to their customers

Consuming Content: Customers deploy and use vendor content in their applications
For more information about the business scenario and business processes, refer to the Solution Manager
Content documentation.
For technical system landscape, software units, and implementation sequence, refer to sections in
previous chapter.
NOTE
All relevant features to perform Sanctioned Party List Screening are available in a SAP-GUI-based
technology that continue the user experiences of previous releases. With this release, the same
features are also available with a new information design in Web UIs. For this new information
design, the opportunities in the Web UI application were also enhanced, for example with features
supporting business user s. You can choose which version of the information architecture and UI
technology you would like to use.
3.2 Customs Management
Description
The product area of Customs Management enables companies to adhere to standardized processes. By
streamlining import and export processes through automated IT-based customs processes by the
Customs authorities, companies can expedite the cross-border trade activities in a global market. The
application supports automated customs processes that can be country-specific such as automated
export or import systems of authorities or the European New Computerized Transit System (NCTS).
By using SAP BusinessObjects Global Trade Services for the automated systems companies can use the

36/54 PUBLIC 2010-12-13
production of international shipping documentation. This includes commercial invoices, entry
summaries, and pre-clearance notifications. The overall result is an acceleration of cross-border trading
and avoidance of shipment delays.
With the main focus on the implementation of electronic transit and customs procedures, Customs
Management facilitates imports and exports as well as communication and printing. The documents
for transit and customs procedures can be based on master and transaction data from a feeder system
through integration of logistics processes in the feeder system and the processes of Customs
Management. The customs communication service enables you to connect to customs offices to
execute customs declarations at the border or inland by communicating electronically and printing
required forms.
Customs Management allows you to use regular customs procedures as well as inventory-managed
customs procedures, for example customs warehousing, outward and inward processing. As for the
customs warehouse and outward processing procedure this also includes the customs inventory
management. Customs warehousing and its inventory management are based on the logistics
integration with a feeder system. Customs duty calculation supports complicated calculations of duties
and value added tax based on goods value and additional costs, for example transportation or insurance.
Product classification assigns the appropriate classification numbers to imported and exported
materials.
In addition to customs procedures, you can also monitor movements of excise goods and comply to
the standards that the authorities set for electronic communication and securing the movements.
3.3 Preference Processing
Description
Preference Processing supports companies in indicating goods for preferential tariff treatment that can
mean reduced or zero rates of customs duty. It assists in determining whether all the prerequisites for
preferential customs duty rates have been fulfilled. This determination is based on transaction and
master data from the logistics system that can be used in Preference Processing through process
integration between SAP BusinessObjects Global Trade Services and the feeder system.
Preference Processing includes the following requirements for preference processing:

Defining preference agreements

Managing preference rules

Managing inbound and outbound long-term vendor declarations, including requesting and
sending reminders to vendors about vendor declarations and maintaining the declarations in the
system

Preference determination for regular and configurable bill of materials, including extensive logs

Providing statement on preferential eligibility for goods based on vendor declarations and bill of
materials
3 Business Scenarios in the Product Areas of SAP BusinessObjects Global Trade
Services
3.3 Preference Processing
2010-12-13 PUBLIC 37/54

Issuing vendor declarations for goods to Customs with preferential eligibility and revoking vendor
declarations if the preferential status changed

Printing preferential documents such as certificates of origin or goods movements certificates valid
as preference certificate
To prove preferential eligibility of goods with Preference Processing enables the exporter to obtain a
competitive advantage over other exporters. This reduces the overall price of goods for customers who
import the goods.
RECOMMENDATI ON
For the upgrade using the business scenario Preference Processing, we recommend that you
process the worklist of long-term vendor declaration for customers' purposes before you upgrade
from SAP BusinessObjects Global Trade Services release 7.0 or higher to release 10.0. If necessary,
you can restructure the worklist using the initial transfer in the feeder system.
3.4 Letter of Credit Management
Description
Letter of Credit processing allows you more control over shipping dates and receipt of documents for
legal control purposes. It supports importers and exporters in mitigating financial risks by trading
globally. You can incorporate this service in your export transactions to minimize risks and expedite
transactions in international trade. It allows you to gain more control over shipping dates and receipt
of documents for legal control purposes.
The following features are available to minimize risk in import transactions:

You can maintain letters of credit that you receive from banks in the letter of credit master data.

You can enter all the relevant shipping and document dates in the letter of credit. You can do this
by using the letter of credit attributes. Each attribute can be specified individually. Based on the
attribute settings either the single or the multiple assignment of attributes is possible.

You can assign letters of credit to export transaction documents due to the outbound logistics
integration.

The system recognizes that your import business partner is relevant to the Letter of Credit
processing and you are required to assign a letter of credit to that business partner.

You can create bank master data by transferring the data initially from your feeder system to SAP
BusinessObjects Global Trade Services and enhancing it in the business partner maintenance
transaction.

You can monitor the status of your letters of credit.

One user reviews the letter of credit and a second user is required to activate the letter of credit.

You can print documents in a manner that complies with the stipulations in a letter of credit.

3.5 Restitution Handling
Description
Restitution Handling enables exporters to map the restitution process simply and efficiently to the
standard export process while mitigating financial and legal risks. The export processes can be based
on logistics data from a feeder system through integrated processes.
Monitoring and controlling functions enable exporters to keep track of all their business transactions
and cooperate with the customs authorities in a legally compliant manner. Restitution Handling allows
exporters to manage export licenses, securities, manufacturers recipes, and restitution calculations
based on the normal export process.
3.6 Electronic Compliance Reporting
Description
Electronic Compliance Reporting application enables companies to create Intrastat declarations either
manually or based on document data from the logistic systems. The product area of electronic
compliance reporting ensures that the Intrastat declarations fulfill the requirements of the statistical
authorities
Authorities in the European Union require statistical information on trade between member states of
the European Union for the internal trade statistic, which companies can provide by using SAP
BusinessObjects Global Trade Services. With Electronic Compliance Reporting, Intrastat declarations
can be edited and a file of the Intrastat declaration can be created in the required format.
NOTE
You can use Electronic Compliance Reporting for integration to logistics processes in SAP ERP
feeder systems but it also runs as a stand-alone scenario with no connection to the feeder system.

Trade Services are listed in section Important SAP Notes of this guides. No additional SAP Notes were
used in this Master Guide.
A.3 Overview of Post-Installation Steps for Content Lifecycle
Management
Post-Installation of Content Lifecycle Management
1. Set up communication destinations.
2. Determine naming policy and global configurations.
3. Configure system registry.
4. Configure technical settings.
5. Optional: Set up user mapping.
System Communication
CAUTI ON
To enable communication between connected SAP systems it might be necessary to set up trust
relationships between systems. When planning the installation of Content Lifecycle Management
on an already existing application system instance alongside an existing application, security and
performance considerations must be taken into account.
A Appendix
A.2 List of SAP Notes
44/54 PUBLIC 2010-12-13
If you decided to install CLM on a central system and not on the GTS system, you must set up the
system communication between the GTS system and the system on which you installed CLM.
CAUTI ON
When configuring the RFC destination, make sure that you set up authentication (logon and
security). Ensure that the user is not asked for RFC connection logon details, as CLM lacks the
capability to prompt users for RFC connection logon details during runtime.
Make a note of the destinations created as these are needed later on during the configuration process.
Setting Up Communication Destinations
NOTE
This step mainly applies to standalone CLM landscape model. In the landscape model where
communication between the application and CLM happens locally, there is no need for
communication destinations.
For each system that has to be managed via CLM there should be at least one RFC destination set up.
NOTE
If it cannot be guaranteed that the same users are used throughout the landscape, it is also the
point when users in the managed system and in the system hosting CLM can be mapped to each
other. This can be done by configuring authentication of the created RFC Destinations (Logon &
Security).
For more information about setting up RFC destinations, see SAP Help Portal at http://help.sap.com
SAP NetWeaver .
Customizing Settings
Configuring Technical Settings for Content Lifecycle Management
CLM has the following technical settings:

Deployment polling count

Deployment polling interval

Maximum extract chunk size
You can change these settings and see more information in Customizing for Content Lifecycle
Management under Maintain Technical Settings.
Configuring System Registry
The CLM system registry is used for maintaining a list of the managed systems along with their
connectivity information.
CLM must have an entry in the system registry for all the systems that are to be managed by CLM.
Configuring new managed systems can be done in Customizing for Content Lifecycle Management under
Maintain System Registry.
A Appendix
A.3 Overview of Post-Installation Steps for Content Lifecycle Management
2010-12-13 PUBLIC 45/54
During maintenance of system registry, you are asked to specify an existing authoring domain and an
existing RFC destination whose values were set in above steps.
CLM predelivers application-specific API groups containing APIs that are RFC functions modules
residing in application system. When you configure system registry, you associate RFC destination to
API groups and finally you use the system registry at runtime in your business scenarios for content
extraction and deployment.
NOTE
After settings have been made in Customizing, the transaction /POA/CLM_API_TESTER should
be run to test the configured systems, APIs, and function modules before running CLM for actual
extraction and deployment. This tool is only intended for developers and it accepts the system
registry ID. The returned results display the format, signature, and RFC checks against a particular
application system.
Identifying Managed Application Systems
It is not necessary to identify all managed application systems during CLM installation as you can add
extra application systems at a later stage and configure them for communication to CLM. However,
identifying the application systems at this stage can provide a good overview of the overall landscape
in the context of CLM and can help you to decide on existing systems that can be used for CLM
installation.
The systems for which content is to be managed must be technically capable of integrating with Content
Lifecycle Management (CLM). Apart from the current application (with which CLM is shipped), it is
possible to integrate with further applications.
Determining Naming Policy and Global Configurations
To ensure that a globally unique identification is available for content managed by CLM, namespaces
have to be configured within CLM. When application content is managed in CLM system; it receives
specific identification based on values configured in this step.
Use
There are three levels of unique names within CLM:

Vendor namespace
NOTE
Vendor namespace is only necessary for the business process Providing Content. It is not necessary
for the business process Consuming Content.

Authoring domains

Repository identification
During configuration of CLM these values have to be identified. For further explanation of the
namespace concept within CLM, see SAP Library documentation under Content Lifecycle Management
Content Group .
Procedure
A Appendix
A.3 Overview of Post-Installation Steps for Content Lifecycle Management
46/54 PUBLIC 2010-12-13
1. Specify CLM repository ID and vendor namespace that is globally unique for this instance of CLM.
NOTE
To ensure the uniqueness of the chosen namespace, SAP operates a service that issues unique
namespaces for use in SAP Service Marketplace. Vendors are free to use their own namespace
identifier that can distinguish their content from others in CLM.
RECOMMENDATI ON
We recommend using an existing registered vendor namespace with SAP.
2. Identify at least one authoring domain that is going to be used with this instance of CLM.
These settings are unique per CLM instance per CLM ABAP system and client combination.
Therefore, in a landscape where CLM is installed in one system, but is used in multiple ABAP clients,
each ABAP client holds client-specific values.
EXAMPLE
You can have Netweaver ABAP server D1X:
1. Development client 100 has values: Vendor Namespace = XXX, Repository ID = DEV100,
Authoring Domain = O&G_USA
2. Test client 200 has values: Vendor Namespace = XXX, Repository ID = QUA100, Authoring
Domain = O&G_USA
Content Lifecycle Management (CLM) is delivered with the following SAP ABAP-based roles:

/POA/CLM_GRC_USER

/POA/CLM_GRC_<application name>_USER
There are three possible information architectures:
SAP GUI Installation
If SAP GUI is used as the information architecture, the following configuration steps must be followed
to allow access to CLM:
The CLM roles include the menu for the CLM Web Dynpro ABAP application and also an authorization
profile for CLM-based authorization objects. For more information about authorizations, see the
application security guide.
As an administrator, you can assign users in the CLM roles or create your own roles as a copy of these
and assign users to these roles.
For example, after assignment of CLM roles to 'CLM_TEST' user in SAP backend, the CLM role is
available in the user menu.
NetWeaver Business Client Installation
If NetWeaver Business Client is used as the information architecture, the following configuration steps
must be followed to allow access to CLM:
SAP BusinessObjects governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) solutions predeliver roles for NetWeaver
Business Client for various applications and various functions such as:

SAP_GRC_NWBC for overall GRC solutions work centers.
A Appendix
A.3 Overview of Post-Installation Steps for Content Lifecycle Management
2010-12-13 PUBLIC 47/54
RECOMMENDATI ON
We recommend that you include CLM in your existing GRC solutions role and provide the
configuration in PFCG as needed. You can either include the menu from the delivered CLM role
or create your own menu path in NetWeaver Business Client pointing to the CLM Web Dynpro
ABAP application /POA/WD_CLM.
The CLM ABAP Web Dynpro application has the following configuration ID to run CLM for GRC
solutions:
/POA/WD_CLM_GRC - Configuration parameter for CLM in GRC solutions
EXAMPLE
The CLM Web Dynpro ABAP application is included as a new folder in a customer role, which is
based on SAP_GRC_NWBC role in PFCG. As a result, the UI that is displayed to a user with this
role includes work centers from an existing GRC solutions role plus a new work center for Content
Lifecycle Management.
Portal-Based Installation
If portal-based access is used as the information architecture, the following configuration steps must
be followed to allow access to CLM:
Portal roles are used in GRC solutions to provide NetWeaver portal-based user access for various
functions.
For CLM, no existing portal role is supplied, but the following steps can be used to enable portal users
to access CLM:
1. In NetWeaver Portal, choose Content Administration Portal Content Management Portal Content .
2. Copy an existing model workset, create a new workset, or enhance the old workset with the CLM
link.
3. To add CLM as an application link:
1. Create a new iView based on Web Dynpro ABAP iView template.
2. Provide WAS server details or an existing SAP system alias.
3. Enter or select the Web Dynpro ABAP application with name /POA/WD_CLM and also provide
the configuration name as %2fPOA%2fWD_CLM_GRC.
4. Assign the workset to existing or new portal roles as needed.
EXAMPLE
You can create a new portal role specifically for CLM, which is only visible to content
administrators or you can assign the CLM work center to an existing role depending on your
requirements.
5. Assign the portal role to relevant users and groups.
6. Enable portal users to use back-end users, with the correct authorization to run CLM. Map the
portal users to back-end users with CLM roles assigned.

Configuration Documentation in SAP Solution ManagerSAP Solution Manager is a life-cycle
platform. One of its main functions is the configuration of business and IT scenarios. It contains
Customizing activities, transactions, and so on, as well as documentation.
In addition, SAP BusinessObjects Global Trade Services offers the configuration information also in
Configuration Guides. The configuration guide describes the settings you need to make to configure
application components required for a business scenario. There are individual configuration guides for
each product section of SAP BusinessObjects Global Trade Services, including information about system
connection, data replication, general and process-specific customizing. The configuration guide
specifies the configuration activity sequence, and their dependencies. Configuration activities can be
Customizing activities, SAP system transactions, organizational activities, and so on. The configuration
guide identifies the areas in the Customizing where you find the (general) activity documentation, but
it does not reference individual Customizing settings for the business scenario.
