SCP user vs on-Prem user


When hosting an app on SCP and logging in with SCP do I have to map the SCP user to an on-prem user or can I use a generic background/RFC user when querying the connected on-prem system? The reason I ask is that the app will be made available for a lot of users without an ERP user. Creating those will make the implementation through SCP too expensive, and PI will be a better choice.

Thanks in advance!

    You can setup a generic user to query the system (this user can be configured in the destination on SAP Cloud Platform).

    As long as you’re only reading data from the system you shouldn’t run into indirect usage issues. (This is important to keep in mind)

    More info on indirect use can be found here:

    If you plan to use a technical user to get the data from the on prem backend you need a middleware layer in SAP CP i.e. using SAP Cloud Application Programming Model if the data each user can see is different.
