Installation and Upgrade

The configuration file tsap-rfc-server.properties for Talend SAP RFC Server is created by the installer under the $TSAPS_HOME\conf directory (where $TSAPS_HOME corresponds to the directory where the Talend SAP RFC Server has been installed - by default, this is <$INSTALLDIR>\sap-rfc-server). Before starting Talend SAP RFC Server, you can configure the file to enable some additional features of the server according to your needs.

Note that any change of the configuration file requires a restart of the Talend SAP RFC Server.

  • To enable user authentication, you need to uncomment the following three parameters in the configuration file and set their values.

    # File system directory containing jaas authentication configuration
    rfc.server.jms.login.config=conf/user-authentication/login.config
    
    # A jaas username used to authenticate a publisher or sender
    rfc.server.jms.login.username=talenduser
    
    # A jaas password used to authenticate a publisher or sender
    rfc.server.jms.login.password=talendpassword

    Note that the username and password values will be used by the tSAPIDocReceiver component or the tSAPDataSourceReceiver component to connect to the Talend SAP RFC Server and the values must also exist in the $TSAPS_HOME\conf\user-authentication\users.properties file. In this file, each row represents a username and password pair, where the username value is on the left side of the equals sign and the password value is on the right side of the equals sign.

    # username=password
    talenduser=talendpassword

    Note that if you don't enable user authentication, the tSAPIDocReceiver component or the tSAPDataSourceReceiver component can also connect to Talend SAP RFC server without setting the value for their user and password fields.

  • To enable the SSL transport mechanism, you need to copy the key store file for SSL to the $TSAPS_HOME\conf folder and then uncomment the following two parameters, the path to the key store file and the password for the key store file, in the configuration file and set their values.

    # The path to a key store for SSL
    rfc.server.jms.ssl.keystore.path=conf/mybroker.ks
    
    # A password for a key store for SSL
    rfc.server.jms.ssl.keystore.password=talendkeystore
  • To set up persistence for SAP IDocs, you need to uncomment the following parameter in the configuration file and set its value to true.

    # Whether JMS messages are persisted or not
    rfc.server.jms.persistence=true
  • To store SAP IDocs in durable queues in Talend SAP RFC Server, you need to uncomment the following parameter in the configuration file and set its value to true.

    # Whether JMS messages should be replicated in durable queues
    rfc.server.jms.replicate.in.durable.queues=true

    This way, the Talend SAP RFC Server will keep a copy of all IDocs received in queues named after the IDoc. This is meant to serve the tSAPIDocsReceiver component in batch mode. When the receiver runs, it collects all IDocs stored in the durable queues since the last time it ran.

    By default, messages are kept in the queues for up to seven days. You can change the retention period by uncommenting the following parameter in the configuration file and updating its value to meet your own requirement. In this example, the retention period is extended for ten days.

    # ISO8601 retention period for JMS messages in durable queues
    rfc.server.jms.durable.queues.retention.period=P10D
