Connected MDM and LDAP, but but now what? Why user mapping?


Hi Gurus,

In my last thread, I posted that I was not able to connect MDM with LDAP. I was finally able to.

My problem now is I have to define user mapping in SAP Portal for the MDM business iViews to work.

By connecting MDM and LDAP, I got the benefit that now the authentication and authorization is happening via LDAP.

But this does eliminate the need for user mapping. If this is the case then why the real benefit of using LDAP?

In this case this becomes worse as I need to know the user's LDAP Password which no body will share for sure.

Any ideas? I want to get rid off this user mapping stuff.

Warn Regards,
