RDS for IdM 7.2 (HANA stuff)


Hey everybody,

we are running at the moment a IdM on Version 7.2 SP9. Next year we plan to upgrade it to 8.0. But now to my issue which results of a customer requirement to connect a SAP HANA system to our IdM.

In our IdM 7.2 there are all provisioning tasks for HANA available... also the initial job "SAP HANA - Initial Load" can be imported through the Job wizard - Folder: "...\usr\sap\IdM\Identity Center\Templates\Jobs\SAP NetWeaver\".

Provisioning tasks and running the Initial Load works fine and correctly. Our problem is, that there is no "HANA - Update Job" for continous synchronize. I wanted to start customizing the actual "SAP HANA - Initial Load" to an "Update Job" but relative early I saw there are missing many things like the connection check, system specific attribute (SAPC)... So I downloaded the newest version of RDS for 7.2 & 8.0.

After analyzing the whole RDS 7.2 package, I could only find ABAB stuff - nothing about HANA. Then I took a deeper look into the RDS package for IdM 8.0.

Location (opened with notepad):

"..IDMCONTENT01_0-20009661\RDS_START_NW_CONTENT\RDS Configuration Packages\"

And there is everything in it I could need now like the connection check, update & initial job with system specific attributes and many more.

Now to my questions:

1.) Is there a RDS package available with HANA stuff for IdM 7.2?

2.) Could I extract the needed things out of the IdM 8.0 RDS package and import it later into our system? -> sounds not well in my ears.

3.) Did anyone implemented a fully working SAP IdM 7.2 <-> HANA connection with system specific attributes?

4.) Should we rather wait till we upgraded to SAP IdM 8.0 before we connect HANA systems?

Thank you in advance for any help or information!
