3.7 Creating a Communication (CPIC) User

Users are client-independent. For each client that will be using the driver, a system user with CPIC access must be created.

  1. In SAP, specify transaction code SU01.

  2. From User Maintenance, specify a username in the User dialog box (such as IDM_CPIC), then click the Create icon.

  3. Click the Address tab, then specify data in the last name fields (Last_IDM).

  4. Click the Logon Data tab, then define the initial password and set the user type to CPIC (Communication).

  5. Click the Profiles tab, then add the S_A.CPIC profile.

    The driver must also have sufficient rights to perform required operations, which might include SAP_ALL and SAP_NEW depending on your company’s system security policy.

    We recommend using the most restrictive rights possible.

  6. Click the Systems tab. Specify the logical name of the sender system (such as ADMCLNT100). This enables the CPIC user to authenticate to the client system.

  7. Click Save.

NOTE:Initially, you can create a dialog user to test your SAP system configuration. If there are processing problems, you can analyze the dialog user in the debugger. You should also log into the SAP system once to set this user’s password. After the system is tested and works properly, you should switch to a CPIC user for security measures.
