Creating an RFC Destination for the listener component tSAPIDocInput

About this task

Logon to a given SAP R/3 system and then proceed as follows to create the required RFC Destination:


  1. Execute the transaction SM59 to open the Display and maintain RFC destinations view.
  2. In this view, select the TCP/IP connections option and click Create.
    Then the RFC Destination view displays.
  3. In RFC destination field of this view, type in the name of this RFC Destination to be used. As this field is case-sensitive, it is recommended to use upper case characters. In this example, we name it as IDOC_TALEND.
  4. In the Connection type field, select the T type meaning to start an external program via TCP/IP.
  5. In the Description field, type in a short text to describe this RFC Destination being created. In this example, we enter simply TALEND IDOC LISTENER.
  6. In the Logon area, select the Current user check box and then click the Save button on the top toolbar.
    Then the RFC Destination IDOC_TALEND view is opened.
  7. In this view, click Registration to display the Program ID field and type in the program ID. This program ID must use the same name as this created RFC Destination, that is, IDOC_TALEND. Then again, click the save button on the top toolbar to validate this configuration.
  8. Still on the top toolbar, click the back button several times to go back to the SAP Easy Access view (SAP main screen) and execute the transaction SMGW to open the gateway monitor view.
  9. From the menu bar of the gateway monitor view, select Goto > Parameters > Display. Then an table like the following one displays, where you can find the gateway service of this given SAP R/3 system.


In this example, the gateway service to be used is sapgw00.

Now, the required RFC Destination has been created.
