Using Netweaver ID Management to map Business Partners


The Netweaver ID management is linked to (e.g.) a Business Partner based on SAP HR and maps roles like authorisation, based on roles and tasks based on protocols like LDAP. It is a strong and usefull framework.

Can SAP ID management also be linked to the Business Partner, in such away such that the role of a Business Partner in a "network of business relations" can be used in determining access rights?


As an example, if in a purchaseorder a vendor is identified with a role for a person of that vendor (as mapped in SRM) can then this ID be used to set access to the purchase order and the underlying case (of that logistics order)?


Or as another example, if a payment is not recieved, and a collections case is made, can this then be accessed by the Business Partner associated to the collections case as bailiff?

Of course we touch on issues such as IDentity federation here.

    currently SAP does not offer a special connector for the integration between identities (in the Identity Center) and business partners (in CRM, SRM, ...) which would be neccessary to support the describved scenario.

    However, we know about the requirement and are checking how to solve the isssue with one of the later releases.

    Kind regards
