Would NWDI work after the UME Change ?

Hi All,

Our Dev Portal UME is going to be changed from local UME DB2 DB to ABAP UME.

The CMSAdim user is: KABA.

Would the UME Change affect the SAP NWDI ?

Would we need to lock KABA in local UME and create it ABAP UME ?

What would happen if we keep KABA in local UME.

Please let me know.

I was thinking of DTR Replication; but we have broken DC in Considilation Environment and the

Assembled code has error.

Should we go for DTR Replication to Test Portal before changing the UME in Dev Portal ?

Our Dev and Test Portal are version SAP NetWeaver 7.0 EHP1 SP6.

Thanks & Regards

Kaushik Banerjee

    This is my understanding of how UME works in NWDI, if there is anything wrong do correct me:

    In your case it's LDAP UME for NWDI, and the CMSADMIN user KABA exist in LDAP.

    Now when you change the UME from LDAP to ABAP, here are the things you need to keep in mind:

    1. While configuring NWDI you define CMSADMIN user and password at installation time. ( this need to be changed )

    2. CMS Admin user will be used at the time of Import or Export of Activities in CMS.

    3. When you login to NWDI CMS Web UI you login with your id ( having NWDI. Developer or NWDI.Administrator role assigned )

    4. But when you do an import it internally uses CMS Admin user to do the import.

    So when you change the UME you need to create CMS admin user in the ABAP UME and change the password in the configuration.

    And regarding Replication, my suggestion will be to resolve all the issues before changing the UME.

    Resolve the below first and then make the change to ABAP UME:

    a. Broken DCs

    b. And then do the import once you have everything consistent then make the UME change.

    Check the links below to resolve the broken DC's

    Hope this helps.
