Identity Provisioning and Authentication services with SCP and SuccessFactors

We current hold user information in our SAP SuccessFactors system as well as our SAP IDM.

We would like to be able to use this information to authenticate users in SAP Cloud Platform.

What steps do I need to follow ?

Setup SuccessFactors as the SOURCE in the SCP Indentity provisioning service. Or would it be better to use our SAP IDM ?

What would be the TARGET be in the Identity provisioning service?, the SCP Identity authentication service?

    The recommended way is to use the Identity Provisioning service, with SuccessFactors as the source system and Identity Authentication service as the target.

    Best regards,

    • In our case, a New employee is created in SF, which feeds into our IDM. We've only recently purchased SF so our existing users were already in our IDM.

      So in our case it makes more sense to pool the users from our IDM if that makes sense.
