user external authentication

hello,

I have read documentation about the technique for SSO to enable authentication between SAP and non-SAP systems but I didn't find a solution for our problem.

We seek a way to authenticate extern SAP users. We have two SAP systems (ERP and BI) and other non-SAP systems and we want users to authenticate once.

For this reason we are interested in any other authentication mechanisms (eg HTTP authentication header, or otherwise) which has been possible programmatic authentication (from an external application, most likely written in. NET). We need to access the web interface for BI and ERP without the need for additional licenses (such as SAP Enterprise Portal).

Please help me with a solution.

Thanks you

    Hi,

    for web based only access you could try to use SAML. Your possibilities depend on what version you are. Another approach is to use SAL logon tickets. These are just digitally signed cookies. Every application server checks validity of cookie and if everything is OK it authenticates user. There is a standard library from SAP that allows to validate cookie. So you could use same authentication method on your custom portal.

    Cheers
