Starting SAP MI


You start SAP MI on the mobile device to work with the mobile applications assigned to you.


Either you or the administrator have installed SAP MI on the mobile device (see Installing the SAP MI Client Using the URL or Installing the SAP MI Client Using Setup Packages).

Starting SAP MI on a Windows32 Operating System

The SAP MI installer creates an entry in the Windows toolbar. By default, this is Start ® Programs ® SAP Mobile Infrastructure.


Select the SAP Mobile Infrastructure entry to start SAP MI.

The client is started together with a browser that displays the SAP MI home page.

Starting SAP MI on PDAs

?      JSP Version

The installer creates a link in the Autostart folder of the operating system in order to start SAP MI. SAP MI, therefore, starts automatically when you restart your PDA.

In the Windows start menu of the operating system, the installation program creates a link to the start of the Pocket Internet Explorer with a link to the SAP MI home page.

If problems occur when you start up, note the following:

On PDAs, it is not possible to start the client from the address <protocol>://localhost:4444. Instead, use the address <protocol>://

?      AWT Version

The installer creates a link in the Windows Start menu of the operating system to start SAP MI.

Start SAP MI by clicking on the link that was created.

Logging On

Enter the required logon data and choose Log On. If you do not yet have a user, create one by selecting New User and entering the required data.

Depending on the configuration, SAP MI behaves in different ways:



Your device is configured for Single Sign-On and you are the only user of the device.

You do not have to enter your user data either at the first log on or at any later time. Your user for SAP MI is created from the data in the SAP logon ticket.

Your device is configured for Single Sign-On and is used by multiple users.

Before Single Sign-On can be used you must create a user. If there is no SAP logon ticket that can be used for the authentication, you must log on directly to SAP MI with the user ID and password.

Your device has been configured in such a way that the log-on password is not required (bypass function).

You do not have to enter a password either when creating a user or when logging on to SAP MI. Your logon to the operating system is considered by SAP MI to be sufficient authentication in this case.

If the logon password query for your device is deactivated later, and you have already defined a logon password, when you make a change to the configuration you are asked to confirm the deactivation of your logon password. You do not have to enter a password to logon to SAP MI. You can also choose not to use the bypass option and to continue logging on using the password.

If you have forgotten your logon password, and you client has been configured appropriately, you can reset your password using the synchronization password. To do this, you require an online connection to the server.

If your logon password is identical to your synchronization password, and you cannot verify your ID on the server, the administrator must reset your synchronization password for you. Once this has been done, you logon to the server using the reset password and reset your logon password to this password. You can now logon to the client as normal and manage the passwords yourself (see Changing Passwords).
