The Deployment Manager installs the administration interface for the administration (e.g. SAP connection, Azure Relay, Web Services) of ECS Core. This is the setup of the IIS web pages and the associated resources such as database for the configurable ECS Core settings such as access and connection settings.

Prerequisites

The following IIS components are required for execution:

Common HTTP Features

  • HTTP Redirection

  • Security*
  • Basic Authentication
  • Windows authentication

Application development

  • ASP.NET 4.7
  • ISAPI Extension
  • ISAPI Filters

Management Tools

  • IIS Management Tools and Scripts

Missing IIS components can be installed automatically when starting the Deployment Manager. Alternatively, they can be added manually in advance using Windows Server Management (Add Roles and Features).

Deployment

Select Express Install to install with the default settings and ports. To adjust the default values, click Next. This will go through expert mode, which we recommend only to experienced users.

In Expert mode, you can make the following fine adjustments:

Installation Directory

Default directory for setting up the components: C:\ECSCore

Services Site technically means the Web page that provides the consumer endpoint for deployed Web services and the client library for calling SAP functionality in the cloud environment. The Deployment Manager creates the page in the IIS. You can call it directly from there or by specifying the port entered (8080) directly in the browser (http://localhost:8080).

Management Site

The configuration for ECSCore is done on the Management Site. It is also used for deployment and administration of created web services. With the Deployment Manager, the management site is created in the IIS and can be called from there or directly in the browser by specifying the port (8085) (http://localhost:8085).

Database

This setting is no longer supported, a Microsoft SQL Server Compact is no longer required in the current version and is installed.

Master Key

The Master Key can be used to restore sensitive information such as logon data for the management dashboard or SAP connections. Important: Keep the password in a safe place.
