Portal - Using LDAP and R/3 System as UME Configuration

Hello,

We have configured u201CLdapu201D for Portal user management. Works fine... In addition we would like to configure u201CAbap Systemu201D also for Portal user management.

It is possible to configure both DataSources for Portal user manament at the same time? What are the pros and cons of using both DataSources?

Has anybody some experiences (f.i. Portal performance) of using both DataSources at the same time?

Thanks in advance.

Regards,

Ilka

    if your installation is JAVA only (central system) you have a choice to pick ABAP or JAVA UME during installation and when you choose JAVA UME, you then connect the LDAP....meaning you have a choice of LDAP or UME. so if you dont like LDAP dont use it !

    create users in the UME and make sure the datasource is UME and not LDAP for any role or user group assignment to users.

    its only in ABAP+JAVA installation (add-in installation or dual stack system) where you dont have a choice but use ABAP if you dont choose java ume during installation...

    The simulataneous use of an LDAP and an ABAP system as the UME datasource of one Portal is technically possible but it is not one of the standard supported scenarios for UME datasource configuration

      i wouldnt try that approach if SAP doesnt support it !

      why build a rocket ship on your own and then figure out how to trouble shoot versus buying the same rocket ship from SAP ??

      and then create OSS messages all the time !!!!!
