Whether SAP charges for SSO

Dear All,

We are planning to enable SSO for our SAP systems (R/3, Portal, Solman) with windows AD. Do anyone let us know if SAP charges license cost for This. As per our understanding it should not charge any cost as we are using AD and SAP functionalities and not any add-ons or additional tools.

Appreciated your valuable inputs in this regard.

    Hello Satyabrata,

    One of our customer is using netweaver SSO product and they paid for the license.

    But as far as i know there is no license for standard SSO configurations.

    • What did you mean by "standard SSO configurations" ? There are certain capabilities in SAP products that allow SSO, and don't require a license. For example, SPNEGO on NetWeaver AS for Java doesn't require any SSO product license.
