That scenario is required that we need to fetch data from the customer’s existing third party application. For example the customer is having some websites where the enquiries are being stored. Or The company employees who are on tour log their requests for leave in the portal. In such case we may have to provide an interface between their existing application to the upcoming SAP system. It is possible that the system is using a different database altogather. So in that situation how a connectivity is established between the SAP database and External Application database.

You can create connection to external database with below processes.

1 – Connection check from SAP to External Database

You have to access external database from SAP network. You can check firewall, telnet configuration.

2 – Create Database Connection on SAP


Also you can use DBCO tcode to create connection.
