What type of SAP user does Talend require for tSAPConnection

Hi,
I am trying to set up a SAP user to connect from Talend to SAP using tSAPConnection. My SAP administrator has asked me what type of user I require. Apparently there are 4 different SAP user types with different licencing regulations. They are dialog, communications, service and system. Can anyone help me define which SAP user type it should be please?
Thanks

Hi,
Have you already checked component reference TalendHelpCenter:tSAPConnection to know how to set this component?
Best regards

Hi, I searched everywhere but nothing seems to refer to the type of user that is needed on the SAP side, most things just say connect using SAP user

We do support Table reads, BAPI calls and IDoc import/export. All things go via Standard RFC calls, thus not a dialog user.

Hi,
I'm usually using 'Communication' type of user (dialog users would work too,though). It's working fine and AFAIK 'Communication' type of users are not subject to SAP User License Audits, so it would be the most convenient way of connecting to SAP through Talend. Of course you'll have to grant the appropriate user rights in order to extract/load successfully what you need.
