I'm trying to synchronize my company's Active Directory with our SAP HCM database (using SAP as the master). I've found considerable documentation on how to do this automatically, e.g. SAP Library - Directory Services (BC-SEC-DIR), however I'm encountering 2 problems:
1) We want to synchronize a number of custom fields. These fields are obviously not available through the standard sync structures (see abap---ldap-integration-abap-structures). Is it possible to still use the standard synchronization functionality (e.g. by adding my custom fields to the available sync structures) or do I need to write custom code?
2) Not all the information that I want to synchronize with the Active Directory can be mapped to fields that already exist in "users" in the Active Directory. I can add the necessary fields by subclassing the "user" objectclass using LDAP however when I then try to view the user through the AD it refuses to show all the standard properties.
- Is there a way to force the AD to show the standard properties for these users?
- Is there a way to add fields to "users" in the AD without changing the objectclass being used?
Thank you in advance for your help,
