Liquid UI - WS Reference Library

4.2 Server Connections


The Server Connections appears in the first screen when you launch Liquid UI. This is where you will create and manage your connections to SAP and to Liquid UI Server.

On Server Connections, you can perform the following actions.

  • Create new connections
  • Edit existing connections
  • Delete connections

Creating New Connections

When you first open the Connection List, you will see CONNECT TO MY SAP option. To create a new connection, please follow the instructions below.

  1. Click CONNECT TO MY SAP, if you are adding a connection for the first time. The new connection screen will display.

     
  2. Click Add Connection on the home screen when you create new connection.
     
  3. Enter the necessary data as explained in the following list.

     
    Description

    Enter a short description of the target server. This can be anything, but it should be informative.

    Group/Server

    Enter the SAP application server, the GuiXT Server, or the SAP message server in this field. If you are connecting from an external location, you will need to input the full name (e.g. test.guixt.com). This entry is required and can be either a name or an IP address.

    Note: Server names are case-sensitive. Make sure you enter the name of your server exactly as it appears in the SAP GUI Logon Pad.
    Instance Number

    This two-digit number is actually the last two digits of the port number your device will use to connect to the target server. If the SAP server is using port 3220, then your entry would be '20'. This is a required entry.

    Client

    This three digit number is your SAP client's ID number. In our example we are using '800', but you will need to use the correct number for your deployment. The client ID can be found in the 'Usage data' section of the SAP Status screen. Like the preceding entries, this is a required field.

    User Name

    This is your SAP user name. It should be entered exactly as you would when you log into SAP GUI. This is only a required field if you are using Auto Login.

    Password

    This is your SAP password. Enter this exactly as you would when you log into SAP GUI. Please note that passwords entered into the Connection List do not display in plain text. Like the 'User Name' field, this is only a required field if you are using Auto Login.

    Language

    This is an optional field. You can enter the two-digit language code used by the SAP application server here. Each language has its own code, and the code for English is 'EN'.

    TLS

    TLS provides additional security for data being transmitted wirelessly.

    Auto Logon

    This pushbutton enables and disables the Auto Logon feature - it is off by default. When Auto Logon is active, Liquid UI will automatically log you into the current default connection when you launch the application.

  4. When you have finished entering the connection data explained above, click CONNECT TO MY SAP to login to the specified SAP Server.


Editing Existing Connections

Once a conenction is created, you can edit it from the Connection List.

  1. To edit an existing connection, open the Server Connections and click on left side of the connection you wish to perform an edit operation.

     
  2. You will get two options, Edit and Delete. Choose Edit. The connection details form will open. Tap on each field that you want to edit and use the device keyboard to make changes.

     
  3. Once you are done with editing, click on CONNECT TO MY SAP button to save your changes and login to SAP.


Deleting Connections

All user-created connections can be deleted. To delete a connection, please do the following.

  1. Open the Connection List and then tap on left side of the connection you want to remove.

     
  2. You will get an option to 'Delete'. Tap 'Delete'.

     
  3. The connection will be removed from the Server Connections.
