The first step to install BDEx is to import the transport files provided by Basis Technologies into the relevant systems. Depending on your architecture this may be a single set of transports to be applied to all environments, or multiple e.g. one set of transports for ECC and one set of transports for CRM.
Once the BDEx software has been installed on the required system in the SAP landscape, you will need to install the license key to begin use of the product.
This is performed in transaction /BTI/MDELICENSE.
Within the transaction, click on install and paste in the Basis Technologies supplied Licence Key.
Please contact Basis Technologies Support (firstname.lastname@example.org) to request a license key for the given system(s) into which you are installing BDEx. You need to provide the following information:
SAP System ID: 3 character system SAP system ID (e.g. SD1)
SAP Installation Number: 10 character installation number
BDEx uses the Mass Data Runtime (MDR) framework for reporting purposes and for the extraction of some work request types (iDocs and BDocs).
The software for MDR will applied to the SAP system as part of the BDEx install. As with BDEx, MDR will then need to be activated via a supplied licence key. Open transaction /BTR/MDRLICENSE and click on install to apply the supplied license key.
