EP5.0 : Single portal user mapping to multiple sap users


We have a situation at the client. We are running EP5.0 portal.

Problem: When a portal user runs an APO demand planning transaction via the portal, the same portal user is locked out from using supply planning transaction. This is a known back end issue. But we are looking at ways around the problem.

One possible Solution:

Create two seperate back-end users (USRDemand and USRSupply). One for demand planning and one for supply planning.

Question is: Can one portal user be mapped to these two SAP APO back end users ?? If yes, where and how.

If this can be done then, when the portal user is accessing demand planning transaction, it does so by using user USRDemand (for ex) and when it accesses the supply planning transactions it uses user USRSupply.

This way the portal user is not locked out because under the hood in this scenario the portal user is truly using two underlying users to access the demand planning and supply planning transactions respectively.

Looking forward to replies.

Many thanks,

    May be this will help you:

    You can create 2 system entries in the Systems.xml or/and JcoDestinations.xml 'A' and 'B' in the portal and map your portal user with 'USRDemand' for 'A' and 'USRSupply' for 'B'.

    Start 'demand planning transaction' via system 'A' and 'supply planning transactions' via system 'B' so it should connect to the same back-end via different JCO connections.

    Hope it will help,
