    Hi Srihari,

    1. EP MDM Integration can be useful to implement single sign on.

    2. You will be able to view the changes by implementing change Tracking .

    Refer http://help.sap.com/saphelp_mdm550/helpdata/en/45/c87d0243e56f75e10000000a1553f6/frameset.htm

    (Configuring a change Tracker)

    3. LDAP Integration is not must but can be advantegous for authentication for single sign on.

    (LDAP Support)

    Hope it helps.

    Thanks,

    Hi Srihari,

    In the EP- MDM integration scenario, EP acts as a front end and MDM as the back end for it.

    The actions done in EP will be reflected in MDM. This is generally the case when we are going for a CMDM scenario.

    Here, the user can maintain the global fieldu2019s data via Iviews in EP, while MDM will act as a central data hub.

    In this process we may use MDM workflows or EP Guided procedures for data governance, with approvals, validations etc.

    With a simple EP-MDM integration, you can have single sign on., by using the role and user feature.

    LDAP is beneficial for more security reasons, it is not a mandatory step.

    For a clear picture of why EP-MDM, please refer the below URL:

    To know more about the scenario implememtning EP-MDM, please refer the below:

    https://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/scn/go/portal/prtroot/docs/library/uuid/a00ad9d8-247b-2b10-1cba-fffd05356bcc

    For all the steps to integrate Portal with MDM please refer the below link:

    http://help.sap.com/saphelp_mdmgds55/helpdata/EN/45/c87d0243e56f75e10000000a1553f6/frameset.htm

    With reference to the above URL, changes made after activating the change tracker can be viewed.

    Thanks,

    Priti.

    Hi Sri,

    EP is kind of better GUI to view MDM Data Manager.

    What ever u can do in MDM Data manager, u can do it thr EP in very easy & organized way.

    U can add, search, change records thr EP screens.

    U can give Role based access to users like requestor, Approver

    Yes U can view Changes thr Change Tracking Application in EP.

    Thanks,

    Maheshwari

      When it is said that "Customization can be done in iView as per ur requirement" - does this mean that we can create custom UI element like Button (say a Print Button to convert the HTML content into PDF in a separate pop up window) and make it a part of the iView.

      Please respond - I have similar requirement, therefore require some expert opinion

      Thanks and Regards.
