    do you mean Single Sign On = SSO? :c)

    If so, here you have official help site, where you find detailed documentation - SAP Single Sign-On 2.0 – SAP Help Portal Page

    Or try SCN space SAP Single Sign-On, where you will also find lot of valuable information. For example you can find some documents on the left site somehow in the middle regarding implementation.

    Kind regards

      Hello again,

      unfortunately I am not able to give you more detailed information. We are not using what you have described. We are using just CUA and then password of a user to all managed SAP systems are similar.

      I did not catch before that you wanted to have it similar also with the system.

      But anyway I would say, if it is possible, then CUA could be the tool for it.

      Sorry, but I have no more ideas. Hopefuly somebody else will help.

      Best regards

    it seems that what you want can be achieved with SAP Identity Management:

    SAP Identity Management 8.0 – SAP Help Portal Page

    and here is additional helpful information in the community space: SAP Identity Management

    Central User Administration (CUA) and Identity Management both provide number of similar functions for managing users, roles, and authorizations, including:

    • centralized creation, maintenance, and deletion of user accounts

    • Centralized administration of global attributes, such as first and last names

    • Role assignment and removal

    • Data synchronization across multiple systems

    Having CUA the natural next step is upgrading to IDM.

    In addition IDM offers more:

    - IDM is a Flexible Component for Heterogeneous Systems

    CUA is deeply integrated into SAP ERP and other SAP Business Suite applications. As part of

    the SAP NetWeaver technology platform, SAP NetWeaver ID Management makes much more flexible implementations possible: instead of targeting individual systems, you can use it to

    consolidate and manage identities and authorizations throughout your landscape according to your role model, which is more efficient

    - Rights by Role - Through roles, you can determine which authorizations your employees receive while precisely defining each individual access right and the role assignment is done cross-systems

    - Hierarchical role model: The component enables you to organize authorizations based on a hierarchy of business roles. Through the “employee” role, for example, you can create a new e-mail account, Microsoft Active Directory entry, or telephone extension in a single step. You can then grant the “department manager” role further authorizations, such as cost center access.

    - Self-services through a familiar interface, users can quickly manage their attributes – cell phone numbers and office addresses, for example – and reset their passwords without time-consuming IT support tickets.

    - Segregation of duties and workflows

    - Consistent identity monitoring and transparent audit trails

    - Supports integration of an existing e-mail system

    - User interface enables both centralized and decentralized password resets

    Here are example scenarios:

    A new employee joins your company.

    The human resources department enters the corresponding master data into your HR system.

    SAP NetWeaver ID Management creates an e-mail account, an Active Directory entry, and a home folder while granting the employee access to your employee portal.

    The new hire also automatically receives further authorizations based on a clearly defined role model. Then he/she can access all of the functions.

    An employee leaves your company.

    With SAP NetWeaver ID Management, it takes just seconds to remove access rights for everything

    from workstations to the company premises.

    Hope this helps.

    Best wishes,

    Fedya Toslev
