WebUi. General considerations before installing

About IIS


  • Does the connection from the WebUI to SAP requires a service account already configured in SAP to be able to connect? Yes. It will use SAP ServiceLayer and requires an active SAP user for that


  • What level of SAP User and license is required for this service account? Customers usually use a professional user. Other licenses may work if the license allows doing the required transactions: creating sales documents, updating sales documents, etc


  • What version .net framework is required? 4.8 Net Framework


  • Any security requirements needed on the IIS folder? No security requirements for the folder


  • Does the WebUI connect to SAP on TCP port 443 (https) or another TCP port? It will connect through SAP ServiceLayer. The port will be the port where you installed this service, by default is 50000.



About Mongo DB


  • Which version of Mongo DB is required? The latest version compatible with your operative system. Community Edition.


  • Does it need to be installed locally where the WebUI is installed?  Yes, it does.


  • Is there any automatic maintenance schedule on the database? No, there isn’t any  automatic maintenance schedule


  •  Do we need to set up backups? No there are no logs.


  • What happens if the database is corrupted? The service only takes the data from SAP to run the job and create documents again in SAP. As long as you have the data there, nothing should be lost.



About Users


  • About the Users section where users need to be set up to be able to access the WebUI. Is this User access list set up locally on the WebUI? Users in the WebUI are self-defined, the users are independent of SAP. All connections to SAP will be made with a single user, defined in the SAP Connection Settings from the WebUI.


  • Is it able to use LDAP so the users can access with their domain credentials and access can be controlled by Active Directory security groups? No, authentication is handled by the WebUI application
