NWDI with LDAP/User Mapping Requests

Hi experts,

i've installed NWDI successfully in our organization, but we are now trying to use Single Sign On and Integrated Authentication (IA) in all places we can, so that the developer could just login in one place (using IA) and then start working normally.

Our NWDI is installed in a Portal with IA, so i can log successfully into NWDI using my windows credentials. We are using CTS+ with close coupling, so the TMS controls the flow of ABAP+JAVA requests.

The problem is when a developer tries to release a transport on NWDS. The system then tries to Create a request on our ABAP system with user that is logged on NWDI. As this user don't exist in our ABAP system (and cannot exist as it has more than 12 characters), the system fails to create a transport request for that user on ABAP system.

I've tried to configure destination to use User Mapping, but that only serves to connect to ABAP system using another user. The system always try to create the request for the user that logged in on NWDI.

Is there any way to "tell" CTS to create a request under other user (an ABAP user)?

Thanks in advance

    Hello a quick response would be shorter user names then exchange of trust certificates between your ABAP stack and your Java stack. Then SSO ticket issued by the AS java should be recognised by the ABAP AS.

    Hope it helps,
