Database credential mapping

34 Views

Has anyone tried leveraging database credential mapping to connect to a SSAS cube authenticated with Windows AD from a SAP BOE on Linux?

We are considering trying to methods -

1) The Backend data source - in this case is authenticated via Windows AD.

User credentials are mapped to BOE on Linux via LDAP.

We want to map the LDAP credentials to Database credentials. Define connection in IDT to use DB credential mapping and evaluate to see if DB connect works.

2) The Backend data source - in this case is authenticated via Windows AD.

USers in BOE are Enterprise users.

We want to map the database credentials to match network id credentials. Define connection in IDT to use DB credential mapping and evaluate to see if DB connect works.

Has any of the above situation worked for anyone before?

We cannot use generic user id to connect to SSAS as row level securitty is tied to Roles via AD.

Any input or ideas for approach will be great..

Thanks
