We are utilizing the portal UME to authenticate via Active Directory LDAP. We are using Portal single sign on tickets to then authenticate into SAP R/3.
The problem we are having concerns how electronic signatures authenticate. It seems that SSF points to the local SAP R/3 authentication mechanism for electronic signatures, for example, tcodes CO60, QA11, etc. We were not planning on needing an active "internal" R/3 password, but due to the e-sig using the internal authentication mechanism, we have to set a local SAP password in R/3. Is there a way to configure SSF to use an external authentication source, for example, like a connection back to the portal UME?
Thanks in advance,
