Work Manager 6.1: Enabling SSO requires backend password?


Following the installation guide I enabled Work Manager 6.1 SSO authentication using Enterprise Portal. It works but I have 2 issues, the first one is the more relevant:

  • Work Manager users can't log in if they don't have a password in SAP Backend. This password is not really used, because they are getting the SSO ticket from the portal using their AD password. But during the login process, a BAPI call is executed to check if the user has a password in SAP. Is there an option to disable this? In our production environment users don't have password in the ERP.

  • Service Users are also using SSO. In my opinion, Service and Push users should exist only in SAP Backend, but not in AD or Portal... But once SSO is enabled, when the Agentry server starts, the Service users are also trying to get a SSO ticket from EP. The work around is simple, just create the users in the portal too, but I would like to know if it's possible to use directly the SAP password for these users instead of SSO.

Thanks in advance for your help.

      Thanks for sharing, you saved me quite some time today!

      Fyi, for Work Manager 6.2 the JAR from the note is not needed anymore. The BYPASS_USERID_CHECK parameter in the JavaBE.ini works out-of-the-box. (I wished the option would have been included in some documentation though.)
