Authenticate HCP apps using the Corporate User Store without any Identity Provider

Hello all,

We have a customer who are not having Cloud Identity Service.

They would like to use the Hana Cloud Platform, by connecting their AD(note: no on-premise Identity Provider as well)

But, all the information that I have suggests that for AD user authentication to take place, one needs the Cloud Identity Service or an Identity Provider on-premise which is SAML 2.0 compliant.

We referred https://archive.sap.com/discussions/thread/3709349

https://help.hana.ondemand.com/cloud_identity/frameset.htm?461d71c148594608b9c8b6d016e0a0c5.html#loio2c3ede1d7c454b8a8f820248ee3b705c


Is there any way I can integrate AD user store with HCC and from there, it will connect to HCP??

I found there is switch to LDAP authentication in Configuration section of HCC; but I believe that option is only for logging onto the HCC console using LDAP credentials only.(please correct if wrong)

Could this authentication work for taking user information?

Please suggest!

    A drawback of this scenario is that you won't have SSO.

      Hi Radostina, many thanks for your reply.

      The link that you shared is for

      'Using an SAP System as an On-Premise User Store' but my use case is 'Using an Microsoft Active Directory as an On-Premise User Store'.

      Is it applicable?

    Dear Suraj Nair,

    you should take a look at the very new SAP HANA Cloud Platform Identity Provisioning Service and see whether it fulfills your client's business requirements:
