Add Connection to SAP Process Integration (Java)

  1. Go to Cloud Connector Administration → <SAP Cloud ALM tenant> → Cloud To On-Premise → ACCESS CONTROL
  2. Click the '+' button to add a new entry:
  3. Enter the SAP Process Integration (Java) system as system of Back-end Type: "SAP Application Server Java"
  4. Press "Finish"
