  • Click the Edit button again and this time choose <create...> 

  • Enter your System Name and click the SAP Java radio button then click next

  • Enter the Host Name of the system, the SSL Port, choose https for the Protocol and make sure Use SSO is selected for the Authentication Method and click Next 

  • You may need to enter your credentials to download the WSIL. The connection will then be tested and should be successful.  Click Next 

  • The final screen should show that the PowerConnectSG service group has been assigned to the newly created connection. Click Finish
