In IDM 8.0 - what is the equivalent for System Type Specific Tasks

Hello,

We have a productive IDM 7.1 in our landscape.

We are in the process of implementing IDM 8.0. Since a direct upgrade is not possible and also we wanted to update our Windows Platform.

________________

In 7.1 the SAP provisioning framework brought in System Type Specific tasks like ProvisionABAP, DeProvisionABAP, and ModifyABAP etc. I had created copies of these tasks for each of the ABAP systems in the landscape and set up such that when MX_HCM_SYSUNAME is created the ABAP Provisioning tasks are triggered

______________

in 8.0 I have imported the packages - and I do see the com.sap.idm.connector.abap package has Create User and Modify User processes. Is this equivalent to the ProvisionABAP task in 7.1 or am I missing something.

_________________

I did not find any Tutorials like we had with 7.1. Can someone please provide some guidance.

    Hi there,

    So as you've seen there are a few differences between the way that 7.1 works and 8.0 :)

    The short answer is that the IDM Provisioning Framework has changed quite a bit, and as you have observed, now works through the package concept. The packages are an evolution from the 7.2 Framework, which moved away from the System Specific type tasks to a more evolved framework that used "hooks" to trigger various Identity Life cycle events / actions.

    The long answer is, you have a bit of reading (and maybe training) to do. You might want to start here: https://wiki.scn.sap.com/wiki/display/Security/SAP+Identity+Management+8.0+Documentation

    Thanks Matt. Yes going through the course, looks like there are no generally available tutorials for the 8.0 version like we had for 7.1/7.2.

    Thanks
