MDM 5.5 SP3 Portal integration

BenefitsEasy to deploy Fast configuration Highly Flexible : any repository content display Support BLOB objects MDM Performances SSO enabled

MDM Portal iViews requirements Portal :EP6 SP12 minimum If weak encryption J2EE installation (note 796540)Check Parameter ume.usermapping.unsecure=TRUE

MDM JAVA API library build according to MDM server release

MDM server :5.5 SP3 required It is recommended not to change the repository port once configured

Landscape constraints :All connected MDM servers should have the same build level, the build of the JAVA API used in portal. Used network ports open between portal and MDM servers Need to update JAVA API library if server build changes

Restrictions (note 822019)See SAP Note 822018 MDM 5.5 Release Restriction Note. Connection from Portal to MDM Server:works only with User Mapping (no Single Sign On SSO) it is language dependent: a system object must be created for a combination of MDM Server, Repository, Schema Language, and Repository Language. The languages must be set during design time of system object. if wrong language is supplied to Connector API, then connection not possible to repository. The language must be preset. The language code in portal not the same with language code from MDM Server (allows regions). The language must be set in system object with a value code that exists in Repository. As a result: The iViews will display content in a language that is set in system object / alias. As a result: for each language a new iView must be created. A business package cannot be used in the same time by multiple users with different languages if this is required, then each language must have its business package. The shipped business package is an English package.The portal end user cannot choose a language since that is set in system object / alias and this is used by iViews.

Repository metadata must be available during iView design time. No change management supported for iViews.

Package components : SAP J2EE engine SDA files (to deploy with SDM in the SAP J2EE engine) :com.sap.mdm.tech.mdm4j.sda : MDM for JAVA APIs, should be the same build as the MDM server used for connection => to be deployed first com.sap.mdm.tech.connector.sda : MDM connector based on SAP Connector Framework & JCA 1.0 => to deploy after the API sda file

Maintenance/patch :Minimum : Deploy only the new mdm4j sda file according to the server build Alternative Update : deploy also the updated MDM connector sda file if you experienced connectivity problems, but you may need to update also the content (PAR files)

Benefits :You can also develop your own J2EE application and reuse the MDM open connections through the MDM Connector.

MDM iView library Design time

The MDM iView Library provides a set of iViews to search an MDM repository in multiple dimensions. By mixing and matching iViews, portal administrators can design and configure a collection of specialized portal pages for a specific set of user requirements, offering one or more highly tailored interfaces to the same repository. The iViews are fully adaptive to the schema structure of the MDM repository to which they are connected Fully collaborative with other iViews on the page (eventing)
