    • Hi Ahmed,

      When you create a System. <b>Go to System Administration -> System Landscape -> Your working folder -></b> Double Click the system you have created.

      In the dropdown Menu of <b>Display->Select Connection Tests</b>. Here you can test whether the connection of the system you have created is working fine or not.

      Now Go to User <b>Administration -> User Mapping-></b>Select the system you have created in the System Dropdown Box. Search for the user you have to set up the SSO. Once the user is displayed in the <b>Table-> Click Edit</b>.

      Enter the username and password of the system you have to establish the SSO with. Once this user will be mapped for System a tick image will appear in front of the user. This means that the User is mapped for the SSO with the System you have created.

      I hope this helps you in solving the problem.

      Yes you understood it right. Thats what SSO is meant for and thats the procedure for implementing it. 😊

    Hi Ahmed,

    You can check while creating the system itself. Select the option connection tests in the drop down. there you can check various connection parameters which you have given, while creating the system.

    hope this helps.

    regards,

    Vinod.

    Hi Ahmed,

    SSO mean Single Sign On. This means that If you configure SSO for different System/applications then you need not Sign in again and again for loggin to different applications/systems.

    Lets take two different system for which you are configuring the SSO. <b>System-1</b> and <b>System-2</b>, these systems can be anything (for eg: Portal and SAP System). If you login to Enterprise portal by providing the user name and password then you need not provide the username and password fopr logging to SAP system if you have configured SSO between them.

    I hope this helps you!! If any more information required then please revert back.

    Regards

    Hi Ahmed

    Single Sign-On (SSO) is a key feature of the Enterprise Portal that eases user interaction with the many component systems available to the user in a portal environment. Once the user is authenticated to the enterprise portal, he or she can use the portal to access external applications. With SSO in the Enterprise Portal, the user can access different systems and applications without having to repeatedly enter his or her user information for authentication. SSO eliminates the need for repeated logons to individual applications after the initial authentication at the enterprise portal.

    The Enterprise Portal SSO mechanism is available in two variants depending on security requirements and the supported external applications:

    1. SSO with SAP logon tickets

    2· SSO with user ID and password

    For further information on SSO, you can refer to this link.

    Hope that was helpful

    Best Regards

    • Hi Ahmed,

      <b>>> For getting the Log files:</b>

      You can see it through the Log viewer. When you start <b>Visual Administrator</b>, you will see the <b>Log viewer</b> there as well.

      Also you can get the trace file from <b><your_installation_drive>\usr\sap\<System_ID>\JC00\j2ee\cluster\server0\log.</b>

      Regards
