How to connect the combined WAS to an LDAP server?

Hello,

When we installed the Combined AS ABAP + Java installation we have configured the dataSourceConfiguration_abap.xml as the datasource, meaning the users are being created on the ABAP Database.

We would like to connect now the WAS to our LDAP server in order to benefit from managing the users over there and in order to allow users SSO to the portal, meaning: Once they are logged in to their station and browse to the portal they won't need to enter their credentials on a login screen but will be logged-in automatically.

I have previously successfully configured SSO like this but when the WAS was Java only and not a double stack where the ABAP feeds the Java with it's users.

Given this, what are the options we have to implement this, since according to SAP Note 718383: "Once you have chosen this data source configuration, you cannot change to any other data source configuration".

    To allow the use of directory services for SAP systems, the SAP Web Application Server is delivered with the LDAP Connector. The LDAP Connector controls the information flow between the SAP Web Application Server and a directory server.

    Check the following link for the LDAP connector:

      Hi Roy,

      Honestly speaking I haven't implemented this and so I do not know exactly what happens, although I have studied this option for an implementation so its all theory 😊

      I suggest you can try a test system and see how it goes, or wait on this thread and hope that someone who has implemented this feature replies.

    Roy,

    Were you able to get this solution to work? I am researching for the same and looking for documentation/steps for the same. Do you have anything handy that you would be able to share?
