Accessing LDAP Directory from ABAP

Hi all,

is there an easy posibility to access LDAP Users with their orgnanizational data from ABAP? I also would need to access the roles that are created on the LDAP as it is the general UME.

Thanks and best regards,

Dennis Junker

    Yes, see the [LDAP Connector|http://help.sap.com/erp2005_ehp_04/helpdata/EN/48/74040175bb501ae10000000a42189b/frameset.htm] documentation.

    Also check SAP Note 793191 - FAQ: User master synchronization with LDAP directories

    Hello Dennis,

    You can synchronize your data between LDAP and ABAP with certain limitations. For example, passwords cannot be synchronized. Refer to SAP notes:

    793191 - FAQ: User master synchronization with LDAP directories

    603208 - Passwords during the LDAP user master synchronization

    If you are trying to use the LDAP for authenticating SAP users, this is not possible too. Have a look at SAP note 448360. An excerpt:

    "...

    o Logging on to the SAP system

    The Application Server ABAP does not support the direct use of

    the directory to authenticate a user.

    ..."

    But you could use the LDAP to authenticate your users via portal.

    Regards,

    Désiré
