SAP NetWeaver Administrator


Use
SAP NetWeaver Administrator is a Web-based framework tool for administration, con guration and monitoring. It consists of
respective integrated tools that help you to con gure, administer and monitor your SAP NetWeaver system, its components, and
the applications running on top of it.

Main features of SAP NetWeaver Administrator:

A central tool for performing administration tasks, such as starting and stopping instances, modifying con guration
settings, analyzing logs and traces as well as heap and thread dumps, ensuring the error-free functioning of all system
components by continuous system monitoring.

Easy-to-use, task-oriented interface

A Web-based tool. That is, you do not need to have a local installation to manage remote systems.

The interface allows seamless navigation to other SAP NetWeaver administration tools.

Represents the crossover from various expert tools to an integrated, simple, and clear solution.

Prerequisites
1. SAP NetWeaver Application Server for Java (AS Java) is running.

2. To start SAP NetWeaver Administrator, enter the following data in a Web browser: http://<host>:<port>/nwa ,
where:

<host> is the host where AS Java is installed.

<port> is the HTTP port of the ICM. It consists of 5<Java instance_number>00 . For example, if the Java
instance number is 60 , the HTTP port is 56000 .

Features
SAP NetWeaver Administrator Security Roles

For authorization, SAP NetWeaver Administrator uses User Management Engine (UME) and the Java Management Extension
(JMX) security features. The following security roles are de ned from an authorization point of view:

NWA_READONLY - allows you to only view the system

NWA_SUPERADMIN - allows you to perform editing tasks (starting/stopping, changing the con guration and so on) but
not to create/edit users

Note
Full control is granted to the Administrator role only.

Granularity concept restricts the access to the speci c functionality or application in SAP NetWeaver Administrator. The user can
view only the professional applications for which he is granted access rights. Granular security roles provide additional security
and restriction to SAP NetWeaver Administrator applications.

Granular Roles and Security in SAP


NetWeaver Administrator
Use
Users with Application Speci c role have special authorizations for accessing the application and performing operations. Similar
to the two security roles (NWA_READONLY and NWA_SUPERADMIN), the Application Speci c role extends the purpose of
granularity providing more restricted and special access to the applications.

Embedded Application Actions

There are two User Management Engine (UME) actions for every Embedded Application.

ReadOnly Action - To provide read-only access to the embedded application users

SuperAdmin Action - To provide full access to the embedded application users

These actions are attached to a role which is then assigned to a user.

Example
LogViewer Application has two actions:

NWA_READONLY_LOGV

NWA_SUPERADMIN_LOGV

Note
You can assign the Embedded Application actions to the Application Speci c roles.

The action names of the SAP NetWeaver components are listed below:

Adobe Document Services

Information Management

AS Java

AS Java Database

Composite Application Framework

Business Process Management

Business Rules Management System

Business Task Management System

Note
For NWA_SUPERADMIN role, you assign the security permissions to enable the users with administrative access at the UI level.
However, for some applications you need to provide additional permissions (for example, deploy permissions) to perform the
administrative tasks. You assign these additional roles using the Embedded Application actions described above. The
NWA_SUPERADMIN role does not have access to business-relevant data.

JCo RFC Provider Service


Use
The RFC is an SAP interface protocol, which simpli es the programming of communication processes between systems. The RFCs
enable you to call and execute prede ned functions in a remote system, or in the same system. The RFCs manage the
communication process, parameter transfer, and error handling.

In the AS Java the RFC functions are implemented by the RFC Engine service, which is presented in the SAP NetWeaver
Administrator under the name JCo RFC Destinations. This service is used for processing ABAP to Java requests. A feature is
provided for receiving calls from the SAP systems - this is done by registering the AS Java as an RFC destination.

The RFC Engine service processes calls from the SAP systems. It dispatches the calls to a stateless session bean, which is
registered in the AS Java naming system. By naming convention the JNDI name used is identical to the name of the SAP function
module.

Technically, the service is based on the JCo (SAP Java Connector).

Integration
This section explains how the RFC Engine works within the AS Java environment.

RFC Scenario

https://help.sap.com/http.svc/dynamicpdfcontentpreview?deliverable_id=20408507&topics=4949b19720cc3b5be10000000a… 36/75
7/24/2019

1. On startup the RFC Engine serviceconnects to the Web AS repository.

2. On startup the RFC Engine serviceregisters itself at the Gateway with a de ned name. It is possible to register it under
different names and at different Gateways.

3. The Web AS calls a function for the registered RFC destination.

Note
Make sure that the function is de ned in the repository!

4. The Gateway forwards the call to the RFC Engine service.

5. The RFC Engine servicelooks in the JNDI for the EJB, which is registered under the function name.

Note
The name of the function must be identical with the JNDI name of the bean, that is, it is necessary to have a JNDI name.
If there is no such name, the RFC Engine service will not be able to nd the bean.

It is advisable for the beans to be written with a LocalHome interface.

6. The RFC Engine servicecalls the processFunction(JCO.Function) method of the EJB found.

7. The results of that call (the modi ed JCO.Function ) are passed to the Gateway.

8. The Gateway passes the results back to the Web AS.

Features
The RFC Engine service uses a TCP/IP connection type. Hence, the destination must be created in the Web AS with a gateway host
and gateway service for the particular system. Then, on the AS Java, the same destination with the same name, host, and service
is created.

You then have to write a bean with a method having signature public void processFunction(com.sap.mw.jco.JCO.Function
function)throws java.lang.Exception.

You also have to de ne a local interfaces for this bean having the same method signature.

https://help.sap.com/http.svc/dynamicpdfcontentpreview?deliverable_id=20408507&topics=4949b19720cc3b5be10000000a… 37/75
7/24/2019

Note
Both local interface and bean implementation have completely the same signature including the declaration "
throws.java.lang.Exception ". If local interfaces are missing the data changed will not be transferred to the caller. In
case the local interfaces are missing or have different method signature than it is in the bean implementation, the thrown
Exceptions cannot be properly transferred to the caller.

The bean should contain AS Java speci c descriptor de ning for what Function Module this bean can be called.

Tip

If you de ne an EJB STFC _CONNECTIONBean that should be called for the FunctionModule STFC _CONNECTION , the
descriptor ejb-j2ee-engine.xml having the following content should be added:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>


<!DOCTYPE ejb-j2ee-engine SYSTEM "ejb-j2ee-engine.dtd">
<ejb-j2ee-engine>
<enterprise-beans>
<enterprise-bean>
<ejb-name>STFC_CONNECTIONBean</ejb-name>
<jndi-name>STFC_CONNECTION</jndi-name>
<session-props/>
</enterprise-bean>
</enterprise-beans>
</ejb-j2ee-engine>

After this bean is deployed it can be called from the back-end.

Security

The RFC Engine service supports SSO Tickets. That is, if in the ABAP environment the corresponding RFC destination is
con gured to send a SSO Ticket, during a Function Call "ABAP-J2EE Engine" this SSO ticket will be received. This will activate the
process of authorizing the user.

The service also provides you the possibility to de ne particular RFC destinations to use Secure Network Connection (SNC).

Con guring an RFC Destination to use a


Secure Network Connection (SNC)
Prerequisites
When started from the SAPMMC, the J2EE Engine is running in a process owned by the user "SAPServiceC11" (this is the case only
if you have not changed it during the installation). Therefore, you should use a certi cate issued especially for this user. To activate
a certi cate, proceed as follows:

1. Copy the PSE le to a directory and make sure it can be accessed by the user who will later own the process.

2. Activate it with sapgenpse.exe and sapcrypto.dll (you need the PIN that protects the PSE le; the syntax is "
sapgenpse seclogin -p filename -x pin -O user ") - this creates a cred_v2- le.

Note

https://help.sap.com/http.svc/dynamicpdfcontentpreview?deliverable_id=20408507&topics=4949b19720cc3b5be10000000a… 38/75
7/24/2019
Shutdown the PSE Management when using another PSE.

Procedure
1. In the J2EE Engine Visual Administrator, choose Server → Services → JCo RFC Provider → Runtime → SNC Settings.

2. Choose the Use SNC option to start the con guration process.

3. In the SNC Name eld, enter the name of the SNC certi cate owner. This is a speci c string containing the user name and
some additional product information. The normal format is: <name type>:<external name>

Note
Examples of SNC names:

p:CN=miller, OU=ADMIN, O=SAP, C=DE

p/secude:CN=miller, OU=ADMIN, O

4. In the SNC Quality of Service dropdown menu, select one of the following options:

a. Authentication Only- with this protection level, the system veri es the identity of the communication partners. This
is the minimum protection level offered by SNC. No actual data protection is provided.

b. Integrity Protection- with this protection level, the system detects any changes or manipulation of the data which
may have occurred between the two end points of a communication. Integrity protection also includes
authentication.

c. Privacy Protection - with this protection level, the system encrypts the messages being transferred to make
eavesdropping useless. Privacy protection also includes integrity protection of the data. This is the maximum level
of protection provided by SNC.

d. Default Protection

e. Maximum Protection

5. In the SNC Library Path eld, specify the path to the "secude.dll" library.

6. In the Authorization Partner eld, enter the SNC name of the authorization partner. This name can be obtained from the
SNC settings of the corresponding RFC destination con gured in the ABAP system, for example.

Creating Destinations
Use
The AS Java provides the function to be called from the server. This is done by registering the server as an RFC destination. This
registration is done using the JCo RFC Destinations.

To parse the function calls from the Web AS correctly, the SAP JCo (Java Connector) needs a repository, which must be created in
the JCo RFC Destinations along with the new destination.

Procedure
1. On the initial page, choose Create.

2. On Step 1, enter a name for the destination and choose Next.

The name must be unique.

3. On Step 2, enter the following and choose Next:

https://help.sap.com/http.svc/dynamicpdfcontentpreview?deliverable_id=20408507&topics=4949b19720cc3b5be10000000a… 39/75
7/24/2019
Gateway Host

The Gateway Host is the host as con gured in Con guration of RFC Connections (transaction code SM59). By
default, it is the same as the Application Server Host.

Gateway Service

The Gateway Service is the service as con gured in Con guration of RFC Connections (transaction code SM59). By
default, it is the system number of the con gured Application Server Host.

Server Count

The number of simultaneously running servers.

4. On Step 3, enter the Application Host, the System Number, the Client number and choose Next.

5. On Step 4, enter the User and the Password and choose Next.

6. On Step 5, choose if you want to log using a Secure Network Connection (SNC).

If you select Use SNC, all input elds become active.

For more information, see Con guring an RFC Destination to use a Secure Network Connection (SNC)

7. (optional) On Step 6, enter the following:

The language code.

If you select Local, the system runs the servers only on one JEE 5 instance, otherwise, it runs servers on each
server instance.

If you select Trace, the system activates the RFC traces.

8. On Step 7, the system displays a summary of your entries. To con rm your entries, choose Finish.

The system veri es your entries.

Note

Note
You can also go through the wizard without using the Next pushbutton. To do this, you choose the step you want to
perform by selecting it. In this case, the system does not verify your entries on every step. Nevertheless, all of your
entries are veri ed on Step7, when you choose Finish.

Result
If you perform successfully the procedure above, the connection appears on the initial screen as Running, otherwise, the
connection appears as Stopped.

Tracing JCo Calls


Use
Use this procedure to trace JCo calls coming from the SAP systems. The JCo traces write information about the invocated
methods and the data passed through the underlying communication layers throughout the call.

Caution

https://help.sap.com/http.svc/dynamicpdfcontentpreview?deliverable_id=20408507&topics=4949b19720cc3b5be10000000a… 40/75
7/24/2019
The activation of JCo traces signi cantly slows down the communication. Therefore, you must only activate them on a
development support request.

Procedure
1. In the J2EE Engine Visual Administrator, choose Server → Services → JCo RFC Provider → Runtime.

2. Choose the Special Settings tab.

Use one or more of the options below to activate different types of traces on the JCo calls:

a. JCo Trace Level - you can choose the trace level from 0 to 10, where 10 is the highest and most detailed level of
tracing. The JCo traces are written into folder <install_dir>\j2ee\cluster\server<xx> and have format JCO*.trc (for
example, JCO050914_163247845.trc).

b. JRFC Trace - a JCo tracing for a single connection. The JRFC traces are written into folder
<install_dir>\j2ee\cluster\server<xx> and have format jrfc*.trc (for example, jrfc01268_05104.trc).

c. Global JRFC Trace - a JCo tracing for all connections.

d. CPIC Trace Level - Common Programming Interface - Communication (CPIC) tracing. This is the communication
layer under JRFC (or JCo). You can choose a trace level from 0 to 3, where 3 is the highest and most detailed level of
tracing.

The CPIC traces are written into <install_dir>\work\dev_server<xx> le.

e. JARM - activates the Java Application Response Time Measurement trace. For more information about JARM, see
Java Application Response Time Measurement .

f. Local bundle - select this indicator, if you want the bundle to run only on the current cluster element.

3. Choose Set.

Example
De ning UME Actions

When you implement an application that de nes actions which describe which tables can be accessed by the Open SQL Data
Browser, you can use the following code examples.

An action “MyAction” allows browsing three tables: “MyTable1” , “MyTable2” , and “MyTable3” . Note that such enumeration must
be a comma separated list, without spaces.

Sample Code

<ACTION NAME="MyAction">
<PERMISSION CLASS="com.sap.sql.itsam.databrowser.permission.DataBrowserPermissi
</ACTION>

Another representation with the same effect would be the following:

https://help.sap.com/http.svc/dynamicpdfcontentpreview?deliverable_id=20408507&topics=4949b19720cc3b5be10000000a… 68/75
7/24/2019

Sample Code

<ACTION NAME="MyAction" >


<PERMISSION CLASS="com.sap.sql.itsam.databrowser.permission.DataBrowserPermissi
<PERMISSION CLASS="com.sap.sql.itsam.databrowser.permission.DataBrowserPermissi
<PERMISSION CLASS="com.sap.sql.itsam.databrowser.permission.DataBrowserPermissi
</ACTION>

To allow access to all tables with one and the same name pre x, you can use a wildcard. The pre x is a sequence of characters that
contains at least an underscore.

Sample Code

<ACTION NAME="MyAction" >


<PERMISSION CLASS="com.sap.sql.itsam.databrowser.permission.DataBrowserPermissi
</ACTION>

Managing Locks
Use
You use this procedure to create and release locks. Locks are identi ed by their name and argument. The SAP NetWeaver
Administrator sets the lock owner automatically.

Procedure
Creating Locks

1. To create a lock, choose Create Lock .

2. In the New Lock dialog box, specify the following values:

Lock Name

Arbitrary name to identify the lock.

Lock Argument

The lock argument is an arbitrary string that together with the lock name identi es the lock.

Lock Mode

To select the type of lock to create, you set the lock mode. The lock modes have the following semantics:

exclusive cumulative

An exclusive lock protects the locked object against all types of locks from other transactions. Only the same
lock owner can reset the lock.

check exclusive cumulative

Same as exclusive cumulative, but does not actually set the lock in the locking server.

check exclusive non-cumulative

https://help.sap.com/http.svc/dynamicpdfcontentpreview?deliverable_id=20408507&topics=4949b19720cc3b5be10000000a… 69/75
7/24/2019
Same as exclusive non-cumulative, but does not actually set the lock in the locking server.

exclusive non-cumulative

Whereas exclusive locks can be requested several times by the same owner and released one by one, an
exclusive, non-cumulative lock can only be requested once by the same owner. Each further lock request will
be rejected.

shared

Several owners can access locked data at the same time in display mode. Requests from further shared
locks are accepted, even if they are from different owners. An exclusive lock set on an object that already has
a shared lock will be rejected.

check shared

Same as shared, does not actually set the lock in the locking server.

optimistic

Optimistic locks initially like shared locks and can be converted into exclusive locks.

optimistic to exclusive

Converts the optimistic lock in an exclusive lock, and all other optimistic locks of different users are deleted.

3. Choose Create . The newly created lock appears in the lock list.

Releasing Locks

To release a lock, select the lock in the list and choose Remove Lock .

Note
To release all locks belonging to a selected owner, select a lock from the list and choose Remove All Locks Belonging To
Selected Owner .
