12 . These tools include strong and proven ABAP lifecycle management on the open Eclipse platform with powerful UI (user interface) capabilities. It also includes sections that tell you how to prepare the relevant ABAP back-end systems for working with ABAP Development Tools. Its main objective is to support developers in today’s increasingly complex development environments by offering state-of the art ABAP development tools.1 Introduction 1 Introduction The 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. Purpose of this Document This documentation describes how to install and distribute front-end components of ABAP Development Tools on Windows.

As system administrator. are based – at a technical level – on authorization objects. 4. developers always work with ABAP projects to access repository objects from back-end systems. Add the relevant ABAP system to the SAP Logon Pad . Procedure 1. In the SAP Logon Pad.1 Establishing Secure Network Communication In ABAP Development Tools. 3. the user enters his or her user ID and password on the front-end client to log on to the back-end system.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. and again for security reasons. Enable the Secure Network Communication for the selected system . it requires an authorized user to access the back-end system. Using SSO. in turn. however. 2.if not already done.if not already done. Establishing Secure Network Communication Providing Roles and User Authorizations Activating HTTP Services for Accessing ABAP Help from the Back-End Configuring Profile Parameters for Assertion Tickets 2. therefore. With the standard authentication method. you will assign to such back-end system users one or multiple roles that. It includes the completion of the following activities for each back-end system you want to work with: 1. 13 . SSO meets even more the security requirements for working with ABAP projects. but can access the specific system directly after the system has checked the validity of the logon ticket. For security reasons. An ABAP project represents a real system connection on the front-end client and. 2. the user does not need to enter a user ID and password. Compared with SNC. use also the single sign-on (SSO) option for system authentication (if it is available in your SAP NetWeaver system landscape).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. 2. you must ensure that the Secure Network Communication (SNC) is enabled for the selected system connection. 3. open the Properties page for the ABAP system. RECOMMENDATION For the sake of convenience.

Call the transaction SICF in the relevant back-end system. Therefore. See also: Reference Documentation for User and Role Administration Standard Roles The table below shows the standard roles that should be assigned for users of ABAP Development Tools: Role Description SAP_BC_DWB_ABAPDEVELOPER ABAP developer SAP_BC_DWB_WBDISPLAY Display authorization for ABAP developers 2. These services have not been activated in the ABAP system by default. 14 . we strongly recommend using the standard roles (see Table below) and authorization default values that are provided for working with ABAP Development Tools. Procedure Use the standard SAP roles below as a master copy to assign users of ABAP Development Tools in your organization. Then press F8 or use the corresponding toolbar icon to display the services tree.3 Activating HTTP Services for Accessing ABAP Help from the Back-End Using HTTP services that are predefined in 7.
