To integrate Spectrum Technology Platform with SAP, you need to install supporting databases and dataflows on the Spectrum Technology Platform server, and then configure your SAP system to communicate with Spectrum Technology Platform. Once you do this, users of SAP will have access to address validation and geocoding functionality from within SAP.

  1. On the Spectrum Technology Platform server, install the databases required to perform address validation, geocoding, and tax jurisdiction assignment and define database resources for each database.

    You must give the database resources the following names.

    Database Required Name for Database Resource
    Enterprise Geocoding - Canada Database IGEO_CAN
    Enterprise Geocoding - U.S. Database EGM_US
    Enterprise Tax Database ETM
    Universal Addressing - Canada Database Canada
    Universal Addressing - Loqate Database Loqate
    Universal Addressing - U.S. Database UAM_US
  2. When you install the SAP, several dataflow files are automatically installed. Other dataflow files must be manually copied into Spectrum Technology Platform.
    1. If you are adding Enterprise Tax or Universal Addressing to an existing installation, open Spectrum Technology Platform Enterprise Designer, select View > Server Explorer, and delete this dataflow: SAPValidateAddressWithCandidates.
    2. Go to: SpectrumDirectory\server\modules\dataflows\sap.
    3. Review the following table then copy the applicable dataflow files to:

      SpectrumDirectory\server\import

      If you are installing this set of modules Copy these dataflow files to the import folder

      Note: If errors occur in Management Console or Enterprise Designer, delete the contents of WindowsTemporaryDirectory\g1Assemblies, where WindowsTemporaryDirectory is one of these: %TMP%, %TEMP%, %USERPROFILE%, or the Windows directory. Typically, C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Local Settings\Temp\g1Assemblies. After deleting the contents of this folder, log in again.
  3. Import .SAR files.

    A .SAR file is a file that contains a third-party add-on package for SAP, such as the Spectrum Technology Platform SAP. The .SAR file is located on the Spectrum Technology Platform installer in the SAP Objects folder. For information about importing .SAR files into SAP applications, see your SAP Basis administrator.

  4. Activate the business configuration (BC) sets. The activation options and sequence differs for ECC and CRM installations.

      2. Enter the transaction code SCPR20. This activates BC sets and places the default entries on the Spectrum Technology Platform customizing tables.
      3. In the BC Set field, enter keyword *hsgrp1* and find all the BC Sets in this namespace.
      4. Activate it with the options Overwrite All Data and Default Mode.


      5. Select and activate the BC sets with the activation options set to Overwrite All Data and Expert Mode
        Note: Activate these BC sets in the order listed.
