Portal UME as user management for SAP Netweaver Gateway

Dear Experts,

We would like to know if we can use Java UME as user management for SAP Netweaver Gateway.

In our landscape, we are also planning to implement UCES for which Java UME (Portal UME) is planned to be configured.

Now, we are also planning to implement Mobile services for Utilities end customers for which we intend to follow SAP Netweaver Gateway approach.

Now, as these are 2 different set of development approaches and as we would like to have one common User Management approach for both the types of developments, could you please comment on the feasibility of using Java UME as user management for NW GW approach.

Thanks & Regards,

Anurag Gwari

    Hi Anurag,

    I believe the gateway you are talking about is

    - NOT the gateway in every AS ABAP

    - NOT the gateway in AS Java (SCS instance)

    - The Gateway in below link:

    SAP NetWeaver Gateway - SAP Library

    If so, this is more of a NetWeaver Gateway issue, than an EP one.

    I don't know if NetWeaver Gateway has implemented such an option - most likely it has not.

    User Management - SAP NetWeaver Gateway - SAP Library

    As mentioned in above link, I think Identity Management should be a more feasible solution.

    BR, Tom

      Hi Tom,

      Thanks for the reply again!!!

      As per my knowledge and understanding also, I don't think ABAP system has a provision to integrate with UME datasource by any means.

      I do agree with what you said that users from ABAP datasource can be replicated to UME datasource using SPML service but as far as I know there is no direct authentication mechanism between ABAP system and UME datasource as ideally speaking this is seldom a requirement.

      Just for the sake of knowledge, I am exploring this option and do have little hopes for such an integration 😔

      Let's leave it to experts, in case if anyone has something else to say in this regard.

      BR,
