Introduction:-


This is the third article, I am publishing on the subject of installing SAP Convergent Charging 2020. In part 1 and 2, I have explained the technical details and the Core server installation. In this blog post, I will be explaining the steps to install BART server.

I have shared the links for part 1 and 2 in reference. Please check those before reading this article.

 

Installation Steps:-


 

BART Server can be deployed on:



    • Existing host that already contains other CC services like Core server

    • New host which is dedicated for BART server




 


  • Prerequisites:-



    • Install HANA DB and create a BART DB admin user with below roles and privileges to connect. I took the name of the user as BART. You can select a different user name.








    • Create a service user in Core server and assign below roles. Also assign the security profile as a service user. Again I took the user name as BART. You can create a user with different name.







  • BART System details:-





      • BART SID                     : ABB






 


  • Installation Steps



    • Run SWPM -> SAP Convergent Charging -> Install -> Standard System Installation -> BART Serve

    • Select SID and Mount point

    • Provide master password

    • Select the database/host and update the admin user created in db.








    • Provide CA and SLD details if already setup. You can skip if not already setup.

    • Select the security mode for communication.

    • Select BART server settings

    • Select the encryption level for the connection to Core server

    • Enter the connection parameters for Core server




  • Login to BART Server



    • Create a user in Core server with a role Batch Rating Administrator

    • Go to /usr/sap/bart_tool/bart_tool/bin

    • Run ./bart_tool.sh with <sid>adm user




  • SAP MC status





 

Conclusion:-



  • Completed the BART server installation for CC 2020 with HANA 2.0 database.

  • I will be sharing another blog post of various tools and their usage available in convergent charging.

  • CC can be integrated to S4HANA for rating and charging.

  • You can use convergent Mediation system to collect the raw data from various sources. Mediation then process those and transform it in to CC readable format.
