Manually Configuring a Physical Port Binding to the SAP Adapter

This section provides information about configuring the Microsoft BizTalk Adapter 3.0 for mySAP Business Suite as a WCF custom binding by using the BizTalk Server Administration console. After deploying the adapter, you will be able to send and receive messages from the SAP system by using the BizTalk Server Administration console. The steps for deploying the adapter vary depending on:

  • The direction of communication between BizTalk Server and SAP adapter. You may choose to configure a Send, Receive, Send-Receive, or a Receive-Send port. Your choices are summarized in the following table:

    Port direction Communication pattern Direction of communication to choose from

    Send

    One-way

    I will always be sending messages on this port.

    Receive

    One-way

    I will always be receiving messages on this port.

    Send-Receive

    Request-response

    I will be sending a request and receiving a response.

    Receive-Send

    Solicit-response

    I will be receiving a request and sending a response.

    For more information, see the BizTalk Server 2006 R2 Help documentation at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=101130.

  • Whether the adapter sends messages to the SAP system or receives messages from the SAP system. Depending on whether you want to send or receive messages, you will create a send or receive port.

    Cc185415.note(en-US,BTS.10).gifNote
    You can also configure the send or receive ports by importing a binding configuration file that is created by the Consume Adapter Service Add-in as part of metadata generation. For instructions on configuring ports using this binding file, see Configuring a Physical Port Binding Using a Port Binding File.

To perform the procedures in this topic, you must be logged on with an account that is a member of the BizTalk Server Administrators or BizTalk Operators group. For more detailed information about permissions, see the BizTalk Server 2006 R2 Help documentation at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=101130.

  1. Click Start, point to Programs, point to Microsoft BizTalk Server 2006, and then click BizTalk Server Administration.
