Authenticate users to production portal system

At this new installation, portal wants to import roles/users from the production portal system, not prod BW.  Wonu2019t that cause errors for connections with u201Cuse SSO when refreshing reports at view timeu201D?  Note, we havenu2019t set up SNC yet.

Thanks Seb.  It looks like you can import roles from a nonBW system.  ... maybe as long as you've got the transports.
Yesterday BASIS successfully entitled the prod entriprise portal system, imported roles and users into CMC.  These users - like PEP~123/user - errored last night with
"The SAP SSO authentication process will fail because the current user doesn't have an alias that matches system DBWCLNT111.. (WIS 10901)"
... when I changed a DBW~111 connection to u201Cuse SSO when refreshing reports at view time"
BOE doesn't have DBW111 users.  If I did have roles/users from DBW111, BOE would think them different users than PEP~123 users.  Trying to alias them together (can't w/o Enterprise id or similar) one id at a time is a bad path to go down.
I'm not sure SNC will overcome.  ... like passing the id without the system qualifier.  Anybody know?

  • How can I authenticate users against a WAS system from third-party app?

    We are looking at developing a third-party standalone web application e.g. in Rails (but it could be on any framework for that matter).
    How would we go about authenticating users against a SAP WAS backend? Are there some standard web services for this? What other means are there for authentication?
    Kind Regards,

    From the comment in SUSR_LOGIN_CHECK_RFC you just need to pass user name and it will return if user can still log on. Only your system will know credentials for this user so an attacker won't be able to use this service for cracking passwords.
    This FM is in the same function group as:
    You would need to ensure that only the service exposing the "login check" can be called, and not the FM's in the group.
    BTW: SAP Java WAS can provide SAML 2.0 assersions (technically a component shipped with IdM, but you don't have to use the rst of the IdM if you don't want to..). If your applications are all web enabled ones (WDA?) then that is an option to consider, which is also strategically supported.
    SSO2 Logon tickets are not really a strategy anymore... and installing a double-stack system on all ECC sytems just to have SAML is not strategic either.. 
    I have heard several wishes for SAML authentication for SAPGui, but not seen anything official yet in that direction.

  • How can authenticate users´portal in OIM?

    I have installed Aqualogic Interaction 6.5, and I want import and authenticate users from OIM(or another LDAP)? What i can do?
    I read that i must install Oracle webcenter identity services? It´s true? Where i can adquire?

    I have not tried with 6.5, btu I think you just need to install one of the identity services which allow you to sync and authenticate against various sources (LDAP, AD, etc). See here for more info

  • How to display the Portal System ID in a theme or iView?

    Hi everyone,
    I am trying to figure out a standard way to display the Portal system ID within the portal theme or within an iView.   The complaint from users is that, if they are working in both Production and multiple test systems simultaneously, it is very difficult to decipher which system they are actually in.
    Does anyone have experience with this previously?
    Thanks in advance.

    Hello Charles.
    A standard way is a modification of the Portal name which is displayed in a title bar of a browser's window.  For this you have to edit the Central Configuration:
    1. Open System Administration > System Configuration > Service Configuration;
    2. In Browse Tab open  Portal Runtime > Central Configuration;
    3. Locate and modify portal.html.head.title property.
    4. Save changes.
    5. Restart portal server.

  • Production Portal is not starting...

    Hello All,
    I have a very serious problem with my production portal. Every after 2-3 days, the portal doesn't start properlly in the morning, It shows page can not be displayed. The only thing we can do for this is to restart the server.
    Can somebody please tell me what could be the problem and how to resolve this issue permanently. Also tell me where do I check for the logs that had generated at the time this issue happened.
    We are not using much roles and iviews. We just have 5-6 webdynpro applications which are running on our portal.
    We are on EP 7.00 SP9 and we use hostname and not the IP address to access portal.

  • Track Connections to support Multiple QA & Production Runtime Systems

    I've read the SAP Help and various other threads in this forum that describe how to configure track connections that will support deployment into multiple production runtime systems. Can the track design therefore support the following scenario :-
    Dev --> Consolidation ---> Multiple Pre-Production Runtime Systems --> Multiple Production Runtime Systems.
    If this scenario can be implemented in the NWDI Landscape Configurator what would be the best approach to define this ?.
    The reason I'm asking is our customer is planning multiple Portals in Production & Pre-Production due to the number of LDAP's currently being used to roll-out to the full user community.

  • TLN missing for users in Federated Portal Network Setup

    Hello All,
    We are facing a weird problem in our Federated portal Production setup; when the users login to portal they are not able to see the TLN. On further investigating we found that this issue is happening when the user id is locked in any of the producer portals within our FPN environment due to which the users are not able to view roles related to other systems as well in which there id is active.
    This issue is reproducable but only occur once the ID are locked and password is expired in one of the assigned system.
    Our FPN setup is as below:
    Consumer C connects to Producers
    1. A (RDL)
    2. B (RDL)  - BI Dual Stack
    3. D (RRA)  -  BI Dual Stack
    In turn A (producer) connects to 4 ECC systems (F3, M1, R1, R5)
    We are using RRA and RDL both in our environment.We have connected all federated portal with P4 Port, so if required we
    can use RDL.
    Please note our consumer C is EHP1 SP5 and both BI systems B and D are EP 7 sp13. 
    Any help in this regard is highly appreciated as this is critical issue affecting users in our production environment badly.

    This was an SAP bug. We raised an OSS message and it is taken care now. User now gets TLN and then portal runtime error if the id is locked.

  • How to integrate the portal system with non-sap system

    Hi Gurus,
    How to integrate Portal system with non-SAP system?
    I know few ways .......Using Usermapping UIDPW method.
    Using Appintegrator .....and using Business repository objects in JCA?
    Is there anyother way to integrate if so please give me the names and steps for integrating it?
    Thanks in Advance,

    Hi Dharani,
    You can get information from the following links:
    SAP CONNECTORS:- Basically Connectors are like middlewares , that we use to connect to the backend system including Non SAP systems also. Will try to explain it to u with some examples of SAP Connectors:-
    a) SAP Business Connectors:-
    A middleware application based on the B2B integration server from webMethods.
    The SAP Business Connector enables both bi-directional synchronous communication and asynchronous communication between SAP applications and SAP and non-SAP applications.
    The SAP Business Connector makes all SAP functions that are available via BAPIs or IDocs accessible to business partners over the Internet as an XML-based service.
    The SAP Business Connector uses the Internet as a communication platform and XML or HTML as the data format. It integrates non-SAP products by using an open, non-proprietary technology.
    b) SAP Java Connector:-
    SAP Java Connector (SAP JCo) is a middleware component that enables the development of SAP-compatible components and applications in Java. SAP JCo supports communication with the SAP Server in both directions: inbound calls (Java calls ABAP) and outbound calls (ABAP calls Java).
    SAP JCo can be implemented with Desktop applications and with Web server applications.
    SAP JCo is used as an integrated component in the following applications:
    1) SAP Business Connector, for communication with external Java applications
    2) SAP Web Application Server, for connecting the integrated J2EE server with the ABAP environment.
    SAP JCo can also be implemented as a standalone component, for example to establish communication with the SAP system for individual online (web) applications.
    To Know more go through,
    SAP Java Connectors
    II) ALE Concept:-
    ALE is not restricted to communication between SAP systems, it can also be used for connecting SAP Systems to non-SAP systems.
    By using IDocs as universal information containers, ALE can reduce the number of different application interfaces to one single interface that can either send IDocs from an SAP system or receive IDocs in an SAP system.
    SAP certified Translator Programs can convert IDoc structures into customer-defined structures.
    Alternatively, the RFC interface for sending and receiving IDocs can be used in non-SAP systems.
    In both cases you need the RFC Library of the RFC Software Development Kit (RFC-SDK).
    This link gives a great insight into landscape for Connectivity to Non-SAP systems:-
    SAP to Non-SAP systems
    III) Communication Between SAP Systems and External (Non-SAP) Systems using RFC:-
    When you use RFC for communication with an external (non-SAP) system, you can also implement the SAP Java Connector or the SAP .Net Connector for the conversion of data. However, there are no specific security requirements for these components, since they only perform internal system conversion functions.
    The additional security recommendations for communication with external systems in this section make particular reference to cases where an external system is used as a server (SAP calls the external system). If you use an external system as a client (the external system calls SAP), the appropriate SAP-specific security mechanisms are implemented on the SAP side.
    This link explains in detail all the security considerations you need to take for connecting to an External Non SAP system like, User administration, Network Security etc.
