IDM Mass Operations

Hello everyone,

we're investigating the possibility to deploy SAP CUA or SAP IDM at our Company. We're a little uncertain about the IDM solution because we heard that there might be limitations around mass operations, particularly:

1) Mass changes/Deletes/Lock and Unlock: functionality like that provided by SU10

2) Tool to create users from a template and in mass assignment of roles to users

Could any of you clear this up for me?

Thank you.

    Basicaly you could just do it with a CSV you import to IDM.

    Thats quite simple and in my view very fast.

      It requires a minimal amount of "coding" and some understanding of how the management console works. This is not an option for regular end users, only for people who are setting up and administrating IdM in the management console.

      See screenshots here:

      We have also coded a tool in Java/JSP to interface with the IdM database and allow for mass uploads by a few select end users, but this is very dangerous and I'm not sure I'd recommend it unless you can ensure a certain level of competence on the part of these users...

    I was looking at a similar thread . You can find my responses for it.

    Basically, there is no out-of-box functionality. You can do all those listed by you, but this would definitely need bit of configuration and in complex cases, need to use javaScripts.
