Federation, remote role assignment based on ABAP roles on producer


Hi all,

We have implemented the federated portal solution for our ESS users. We use the ABAP stack of the producer portal as user store for consumer and have no problems in assigning portal roles on our consumer based on ABAP roles in the backend (displayed as groups in the portal).

Now we want to add some extra functionality (eg SRM and eRec) and we encounter some problems. These systems all have their own ABAP stack as user store. We have maintained the functional authorization model in the ABAP roles for instance in SRM. So an example:

System I: ABAP + JAVA --> ECC 6.0

Here we have the standard R/3 functionality and the producer portal (A) installed. Roles created on producer portal and assigned based on ABAP roles.

System II: JAVA --> NW 7.0 Portal

Our consumer portal (B) where we use roles created on the producer portal (A) on System I.

System III: ABAP + JAVA --> SRM

Our SRM system with SRM producer portal (C). In the ABAP stack of this sytem the functional SRM roles have been assigned to the users. We have created functional SRM Portal roles in order to use remote role assignment on consumer portal (B).


We want to remotely assign portal roles created on the SRM Producer (C) to users on the consumer portal (B), based on the ABAP role assignment in the backend of system III. How can we achieve this in a fast and efficient way?

Looking forward to your ideas. Anything helpfull will be gladly awarded with SDN points.

Best regards,

Jan Laros
