Mass creation of users and assining roles in Enterprise Portal

Hi All,

Can anyone tell me how can i mass create users and assign roles in EP.

Is there any way except for using the 3rd party tools like QAT, is it possible through SAP itself we can do.

i need to create around 2000 users and assign roles in portal.

Does the Export n Import option help in User Administration ? I have heard we cananot set password in the Import n Export method, is it true ?

Thanks

    You can use export and import feature, but do it in batches ( groups of users)

    I remember inserting a field name for password in the export file from SAP portal,

    By default when you export password field does not appear, if you look in help.sap.com

    the field name/key word is mentioned, probably as PASS... (something).

    I have seen at one of my clients place , an expert in EXCEL/ACCESS/VB wrote a script to execute the imports to the portal.

    Hi chetan,

    You can use Ecatt for creating MASS user in Abap, if it is dual stack system.

    or

    import 20000 users and upload roles.

    Enterprise portals are installed with JAVADATABASE /Java stack only so that SSO/AD configuration could be maintained and monitored correctly in a Large enterprise.

    Can we install both Java + ABAP stack and have EP yes,Installing EP (UME) to ABAP database will work, but pointing it back to JAVA will be a great challenge/Headache/Rework

    Please look into the best practices recommended by SAP.

    But I think from your question you have crossed all the stages of installation.

    your only issue may be with user to role mapping in the import script.

      Hi Chetan,

      Frankly speaking this is a Manual activity if this was not done as part of realization in your project

      you will have to map the users and roles.

      Even if you could get the best script working

      USER to ROLE mapping is what it will ask for? probably look at a reference portal in your landscapre Sanbox/Development/Quality

      which can give you atleast 60--70% of information on this relationship.

      Remaining would be a manual activity, the program team like security, basis, developer etc will always have generic roles supplied by SAP you can customize/Rename them according to the business requirement/your naming convention.
