System requirements

ERPConnect Services must be installed on the SharePoint Server.
An ECS Service Application must be created, for more information refer to our online help.

For secure authorization within the application a Secure Store Application is required. Create one in the SharePoint Central Administration. It is described in detail how to do this in our online help.

Permissions: Make sure that the users stored in the Secure Store have the necessary permissions. They need full rights on the Secure Store Service Application and at least reading rights on the ERPConnect Service Application.

SAP customizing

On the SAP side you have to do the necessary customizing for CATS (i.e. data entry profile) and for recording working hours in the SAP project system. In SAP personal administration (infotype 0105) the SAP user calling up the CATS application has to be assigned to an employee.

Installation of the solution package using the installer

Execute file Theobald.CATS.exe and follow the installation routine. The SharePoint WSP-package will be automatically deployed to your SharePoint Server and the feature will be activated.
