Before the workflow site is fully functional, a SAP administrator must create a logical port on the computer that is running SAP NetWeaver and that is providing the Web service for the workflow site. To facilitate this, you must provide the SAP administrator with the URL to the OBAWorkflowService Web Service Description Language (WSDL) file and provide a service account and password that can be used to access the WSDL file.

Complete this procedure to provide the URL to the OBAWorkflowService WSDL to the SAP administrator.

To provide URL to the OBAWorkflow Service WSDL
  1. In a browser, open the workflow site that you created.

  2. In the address box of a browser, change the last part of the URL (default.aspx) to _vti_bin/obaworkflowservice.asmx?WSDL.

    For example, if the URL of your workflow site is http://contoso/sites/Workflow/default.aspx, then the URL to the WSDL page would be http://contoso/sites/Workflow/_vti_bin/obaworkflowservice.asmx?WSDL.

  3. In the address box of a browser, change http to https.

    For example, https://contoso/sites/Workflow/_vti_bin/obaworkflowservice.asmx?WSDL

  4. Give the URL to the SAP administrator.

This section describes how to provide the account name that the SAP administrator needs to create the logical port on the computer that is running SAP NetWeaver.

You must be a member of the Windows Administrators group to complete this procedure.
To provide the Workflow publisher account
  1. Open a Command Prompt window and open <systemdrive>:\program files\Duet Enterprise\1.0.

  2. At the prompt, type notepad DuetConfig.exe.config and then press Enter.

    The following example is an excerpt of the workflow node in the DuetConfig.config file.

       <add key="ServiceAccount" value="domain\useraccount" />
  3. The account shown as the value of the ServiceAccount key of the DuetConfig.exe.config file is the Workflow publisher account.

    Give this account name and the password for this account to the SAP administrator.

    This account will also be added as a member of the Site Owners group on the workflow site. SharePoint Server accepts requests only from a user account that is a member of the Owners group on the workflow site. This is also the only account that can send protocols to the SAP system.
  4. Close the DuetConfig.config file.
