SAPGUI/Portal authenticate to Active Directory with different userid's


Hi experts,

We have a scenario where the business wants to manage all the passwords via AD. I've been doing some reading and i see that it is possible to tell SAP to use the user store in AD.

Our problem is that the userid's are different in SAP and in AD. On SAP, it's the employee number and on AD it's a combination of the first and last names of the employee.

We do not want to change either of the userid's.

Is it possible to map the AD userid's with the employee number? The employee numbers are stored on AD, but we're not sure how to go about using this as an alias to the AD userid.

Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
