SAP C4C Deployment Unit

We will tackle the importance of the SAP C4C deployment unit. Also, let us learn the following information about this deployment unit.

Introducing SAP C4C Deployment Unit

The SAP C4C deployment is set up in the SAP NetWeaver AS ABAP system. To set up the C4C deployment in the ABAP system, you must perform the following tasks:

  • Create a new server connection named sap-c4c.
  • Create a new user connection named sap-c4c.

Create an SAP C4C service component in the deployment. You must create an instance of this service component for each ABAP system in which you want to use SAP C4C.

An instance of the service component is made up of the following information. So service component name Service component description

However, before you create an instance of the service component. So you must run the DB2 database maintenance program to create tables and other objects required by SAP C4C. 

For instructions, see Installing and Running DB2 Database Maintenance Programs (General) (see Recommended). In this section, we will see how to create these connections and service components in the ABAP system. 

Also, we will see how to deploy SAP C4C on ABAP servers from different domains.

How To Create SAP C4C?

Before you create SAP C4C, consider the following points. These points can help you avoid issues that might arise later when you use SAP C4C.

Also, it is recommended that you use the same domain for all ABAP servers on which you want to deploy SAP C4C. However, this recommendation does not apply if you use an asynchronous replication system. 

For instructions on how to set up an asynchronous replication system. So see Implementing Synchronous and Asynchronous Replication (see Recommended).

SAP C4C can be deployed in an ABAP system from different domains. For instructions, see Installing and Running DB2 Database Maintenance Programs (General).

For instructions on how to start and stop the SAP C4C service components. So you need to see Manage the SAP C4C Service Components (Recommended).

What Is The Purpose Of The SAP C4C Deployment Unit?

We will discuss the purpose of the SAP C4C deployment unit. Also, we will look at how to create a deployment unit and list its details.

The purpose Of the SAP C4C deployment unit. It is to be set up in the ABAP system. Therefore, you must set up this deployment unit in the ABAP system where you want to deploy SAP C4C. 

However, if you want to deploy SAP C4C in an ABAP system from different domains. So you must use an asynchronous replication system.

In this case, you set up an SAP C4C deployment unit in the ABAP system from which you want to replicate data to the other ABAP systems. You must create an instance of the service component for each ABAP system on which you want to use SAP C4C. 

But this instance has a different name and description compared with other instances of the service component on other ABAP systems. Therefore, you need to set up an instance of the service component for each ABAP system.

When using an asynchronous replication system. Also, there are restrictions when using an asynchronous replication system.
