connect ABAP system to local SLD

I'm trying to define a local SLD, and connect few ABAP systems to it, in order to see the ABAP systems added to the local SLD. I'm trying to perform the registration from the ABAP side, meaning to have the information sent from the ABAP side to the local SLD (ABAP system as Data_Supplier).

I'm performed the following steps :

1. defined the gateway host and gateway service of the ABAP system on the SLD (under administration -> settings)

2. configured a Jco RFC Destinations in NWA with the relevant server configuratio, repository configuration and security setting, directing to the on of the ABAP systems.

3. in the ABAP side, transaction SM59, create the SLDAPI_<sysID> RFC destination with the relevant gateway details.

4. on the ABAP side created a HTTP destination using transaction SLDAPICUST

5. SLDCHECK transaction results the following message:

Properties of RFC destination SAPSLDAPI

RFC host:


program id: SLDAPI_C28

gateway host:

gateway service:

Testing the RFC connection to the SLD java client...

RFC ping was successful

SLD server access settings:

host name:

port number: 50400

user : administrator

Use transaction SLDAPICUST if you wish to maintain the SLD server access data

Launching the SLD GUI in a separate browser window...

=> Verify in the browser GUI that the SLD is in a healthy running state!


Retrieving data from the SLD server...

Function call terminated sucessfully

No business systems maintained in the SLD

=> Check data integrity within the SLD!

Summary: Connection to SLD works technically, but the SLD content may need maintenance

=> Check and maintain the SLD data content

Now checking access to the XI Profile

RFC destination LCRSAPRFC does not exist

=> Create the RFC destination by using transaction SM59!

besides that, I've automatically forwarded to the web browser, and by providing the username and password I've managed to login to the local SLD.

But inspite the fact everything seems ok, I still don't get the ABAP system appear on my local SLD!

I've followed the guidelines appears on:

Can you please direct me with a detailed explanation of how this should be done? I'd be glad if any guide providing a step-by-step information exists.

Thanks in advace,

One more thing is that the RFC connections SAPSLDAPI and LCRSAPRFC are used only when business systems are involved or else when we are connecting to XI systems .

The most important you missed it you didnt push the data from abap system to the Java stack which is hosting the SLD.Using the TCOde RZ70. You will have to push the data from the abap system. One more thing is that the procedure we followed was that first we created RFC's SLD_UC and SLD_NUC . You can use one of them depending on the kernel release.Whether it is unicode or non unicode . AFter that maintain the entries in tcode sldpicust with a user existing in the java stack which is hosting the sld.Then push the data using tcode rz70 and the system should appear in the SLD now .
