Learning Objectives

By reading this article, you will learn how to:

  • Achieve provisioning of a single user (one employee with different user IDs) in the SAP system and SAP Enterprise Portal
  • Configure all the relevant customization settings
Key Concept

The provisioning engine in SAP Access Control accomplishes user provisioning. Usually the provisioning happens either to a single user (one employee with a single user ID) in single or multiple systems or multiple users (different employees with a single user ID) to single or multiple systems.

One common scenario found in organizations during implementation of SAP Access Control is SAP Enterprise Portal provisioning. This provisioning is straightforward if all the necessary configurations are done appropriately. However, what happens if, in addition to the SAP Enterprise Portal provisioning, the SAP system provisioning needs to be carried out using a single request when the user ID in the SAP system is different from the SAP Enterprise Portal for the same employee?

This is a challenging scenario for which there are limited details available. Many of you may have struggled in the past if you faced this kind of scenario while doing implementations. I explain the complete scenario and the steps to be followed to realize it.
