Timezone format in SAP IDM and standard TimeZone format

Is there a way to convert Time Zone in ABAP codification to starndard TimeZone codification.

We receive the timezone "Europe\Paris" from SuccessFactors and we need to push the timezone "CET" to ABAP backend.

Question 1 : How to convert from one format to the other format ?

Question 2 : Which format is the right one to use in the MX_TIMEZONE ?

Best regards,

    Take a look in the

    I got this information from the 7.2 document. It's probably not different for 8.0, if that's what you are using.

    Attribute Name: MX_TIMEZONE

    Description: User time zone

    Type: String

    # of values: Single

    ABAP mapping: timezone

    Comments: Use fixed list of 101 entries (Y7D client 000) of TTZZ system table.

    Hope this helps!

    Hi

    I have the same issue as you in SuccessFactors - IdM integration. I used a table to store the mapping between Java standard time zone Europe\Paris and SAP time zone.

    Should you have found better solution, please let me know.

    Thanks, Chenyang
