SSO Liicensing

Is NW SSO 2.0 licensed separately from NW?  We are running BI SAPNetWeaver 7.3 and I am hoping this covers NW SSO licensing?  Can anyone shed light on this?  Thanks in advance.

    No, NWSSO is licensed separately. Contact your SAP account manager for details. You can also see SAP Online Shop for list prices.

    • Yes there is but it depends on your specific requirements (what UIs, what system integration, what features of BusinessObjects you are using, etc). With ECC and BW you could use AS JAVA to issue Logon Tickets and with EPM you could use the EPM specific SSO, see SAP KBA 1293640 for details.

    Hi,

    You can also consider developing your own libraries which will require knowledge of cryptographic protocols etc. I don't recommend this, but some SAP customers have done this using open source code as a starting point, and they consider it to be 'free' but they don't consider the support costs involved when building these libraries. What happens if many months/years later somebody cannot logon ? Who do you contact to fix the home built solution ?

    Also, I would suggest you consider the ROI (return on investment). If you have SSO, then users will have less passwords, and less passwords means more user productivity and reduced helpdesk calls, which all reduces costs. The cost saving is often far more than the license costs for a commercial product, meaning there is a very quick ROI.

    Thanks,

    TIm
