Configure HTTP or HTTPS Settings in the ICM for SAP NWBC 3.5

By Rahul Manoj Mahajan, John Deere India


In this article, we will see how to configure HTTP or HTTPS Settings in the ICM for SAP NWBC 3.5.

Prerequisite: User must have installed the SAP GUI and SAP NWBC 3.5 on their desktop in order to login on it. Also, a basic understanding on SAP NWBC will be helpful to understand this article.


As most of us know that the basic purpose of SAP NWBC is to having all the required applications, traditional SAP transaction at a single platform.

The Internet Communication Manager (ICM) enables communication between your SAP systems

and the Internet using the HTTP or HTTPS protocols for the Business Client applications. NWBC

(Both the shell and most canvas types) uses HTTP to access an ABAP server. It is important that at a minimum one HTTP or HTTPS port is configured and active.  

Let’s see the steps to check if the HTTP or HTTPS service exists for given backend SAP R3 system in order to have a communication between Shell and ABAP server.  

Go to transaction code SMICM.  

  After that check if the HTTP or HTTPS service is active or not using Goto -> Services

We can see that HTTP service is active in this case.  

If it not active, then we can create/change it and then activate it.  

Please note that any changes you make here are lost when you restart. If you want to create or

Change a service permanently; you must do this using the profile parameter

icm/server_port_<xx> as follows.  

You may not be able to change it if you don’t have the correct authorizations. Check with your BASIS team and make the change.  

In this way you can configure the HTTP or HTTPS settings in the ICM in order to have a communication between shell and ABAP server.
