Editing User Settings


The first time you start SAP MI, you must make some user settings. These settings are required during synchronization.



       1.      On the SAP MIstart page, choose Settings.

Note that the screen is different for the technology platforms AWT and JSP. For example, some of the fields are not displayed on the screen for AWT.

       2.      Enter the following information:




User ID for the server. User ID for your back-end system is only displayed here and cannot be preconfigured, because in certain circumstances there could be more than one user working on one mobile device.


Client on the server


Your preferred language


Select the country in which or for which you work. The country has an effect on the currency, date, time, and number formats.

Time Zone

Define your current time zone

Daylight Saving Time

The system displays whether or not you have daylight saving time.

You can fill in the fields Protocol, Host, Port and System individually (optional).


?      <Protocol>: Internet protocol (http or https)

You can get these values from your system administrator.


Select the required Internet protocol. The HTTPS protocol ensures secure data transmission.
