Why do we need a system alias If GW_CORE and IW_BEP components are installed on the same ABAP system?
You need to know the system alias of the ABAP system in which you developed and configured the Gateway Service. There are two possibilities here −
If the GW_CORE and IW_BEP components are installed on the same ABAP system, then the system alias will probably be “LOCAL”.
If they are installed on different systems, then although system aliases can be any name you like, they generally follow the naming convention of <SID>_<Client> So the system alias for connecting to client 200 of system C11 would generally be C11_200.
