When you create an SAP connector, you are authorizing FortiADC to periodically (default 30s) get information of SAP instances and dynamically populates it in server pool configuration.
To create an SAP Connector:
- Go to Security Fabric > External Connectors.
- Click Create New.
- Under Public SDN, select SAP. The SAP screen is displayed.
- Configure the following options, and then click Save.
Name Type a name for the external connector object. Status
Toggle on to enable the external connector object.
Toggle off to disable the external connector object.
Update Interval (s)
Specify the update interval for the connector to get SAP objects and dynamically populates the information in the server pool configuration.
IP Type the IP address, FQDN, or hostname of the SAP server.
SAP DNS Suffix
enter the DNS name of the SAP system is required. This option is required if hostname is used for the SAP server.
SAP MS HTTP Port
Specify the SAP MS HTTP port that FortiADC uses to communicate with the SAP server.
SAP ICM HTTP Port
Specify the ICM HTTP Port.
SAP SID Admin
Specify the SID admin account that FortiADC uses to access the resources in this account.

After the connector is created, you can select this connector when creating a server pool. FortiADC will then get the IP addresses of the compute instances from SAP and dynamically populates the objects in server pool configuration, as shown in the following screenshots.
You can use the IP Address Type option to get the private address or public address of the instance.
