HCM and VDS

31 Views

I am setting up IDM 7.1.

UseCase - Identity LIfecycle Management

Leading system: SAP HCM

Target Systems: ABAP (SAP HCM), JAVA (Portal), AD

I am unsure of VDS's role in this scenario. Could someone please explain.

I understand RPLDAP_EXTRACT_IDM extracts employee data and writes it to the HR_staging area. Is this correct. Then what happens. I had imported a HCM Staging area 2 SAP Master Provisioing Framework and also setup a job HCM-Read Employees according to the landscape configuration guide, which seems to write the extracted employee data to the SAP_Master Identity store.

If I am extracting data and writing to the identity store what is the role of VDS.

Thanks for you time.
