Configure SAP Solution Manager
This section describes the classic connector for SAP Solution Manager 7.2.
To prepare SAP Solution Manager for the integration with SAP Signavio Process Manager, first configure your systems to allow communication with SAP Signavio Process Manager and then set up the solution you want to integrate.
You can limit the imported content with Scopes. Scopes are defined in SAP Solution Manager, for details see this section of the SAP Solution Manager WIKI.
If you don't select a Scope for the import, the full branch content is used as the basis for all imports.
The first export to SAP Solution Manager creates a completely new folder and process structure.
When you limit the imported content with a Scope, your Scope needs to include the folder that the export created. Then all following exports update the content of that folder.
If content is not included in the Scope, this content won't be updated during later imports, but imported again as a copy.
Necessary user rights
You need to enter credentials for a user in the connection setup. The rights this user needs can be system-specific.
To create the user in SAP Solution Manager, follow these steps:
In the User Maintenance, create a new user, for example with the name CONNECTOR.
In Logon Data, set the User Type to Service.
In Roles, assign the following roles:
- Adjust the role SAP_SM_SL_ADMIN:
Double-click SAP_SM_SL_ADMIN and create a copy.
Add a prefix to the name of the copy, for example Z_SAP_SM_SL_ADMIN.
In Display Roles, go to Authorizations > Edit Authorization Data and Generate Profiles.
Navigate to Solution Manager > Solution Administration > Activity.
Double-click the description text ("Create or generate...") next to Activity .
Enable activity 61 Export.
Save and generate the adjusted role.
Save the user.
This section only provides an overview of the necessary settings.

Network & firewall requirements
Ensure your security settings allow incoming requests from SAP Signavio Process Manager to your SAP Solution Manager server (to the URL/port you need to specify later). The IP addresses of the SAP Solution Manager integration service are 126.96.36.199, 188.8.131.52, and 184.108.40.206 for editor.signavio.com . You need to use all 3 of them.

Shield your SAP Solution Manager server
You can optionally use a reverse proxy to shield your SAP Solution Manager server. The following diagram shows communication between SAP Signavio Process Manager and Solution Manager:
The specific Solution Manager API endpoints we use for this integration are documented by SAP here.
If you want to set up a reverse-proxy, you find all the necessary information in the linked SAP documentation.
Make sure that in any response the Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) protection token is passed through and not removed. This is necessary to ensure that SAP Signavio Process Manager can modify data in SAP Solution Manager. For details on CSFR, see this section of the SAP Help Portal.
The protocol being used to access this API is always HTTPS. SAP Signavio Process Manager never tries to establish a connection using unsecured HTTP requests.
Activate Process Management in SAP Solution Manager as described in the SAP Solution Administration documentation .
Ensure that in the list of gateway services for Process Management, the following services are activated:AGS_GBC_ODATA_BPMN_SRV (Graphical Component BPMN Gateway Service) AGS_GBC_ODATA_GOM_SRV (GBC GOM Gateway Service)PROCESSMANAGEMENT (SAP Solution Manager APIs for third party tool integration)
SAP recommends that you use exactly one solution for the production scope of your SAP Solution Manager.
To set up the solution you want to integrate, follow these steps:
- Open theSolution Administration, either through the GUI or by executing the transaction soladm.
- Create a new solution or select an existing one.
- Select the branch you want to use for the integration.
Leave the browser tab open or document the names of the Solution and Branch. You'll need them when configuring the integration on the SAP Signavio Process Manager side.
You'll also need the SAP solution administration later for Configure attribute mappings .
