Changing user store - what's the impact, what are the pitfalls?


Dear all,

we're thinking into moving the userstore from portal DB to ABAP backend (or maybe to LDAP). I could not find any valuable documentation regarding aspects like complexity, costs, required ressources, impacts, and pitfalls, regarding portal content.

Now I got told that especially content managament (KM) could be a source of serious problems becaus of documents being linked with old unique user-ids, which after moving the user store wouldn't be valid any longer.

Installed version is EP 7.0 w/ EHP4.

Has anyone already tried this, or has other experience with this matter?

Thanks in advance,
