Maintain Communication method in SU01 through SAP NetWeaver Identity Management (SAP IdM)

Hi Experts,

I was looking for a method to maintain Communication method in SU01 through SAP NetWeaver Identity Management (SAP IdM) . But I was not sure what is the corresponding attribute for Comm Method in SU01. Can anyone please comment on this?

Also I wanted to know if there is any other configuration I am supposed to maintain inorder to make the above functionality work?

Regards,

Mohamed Fazil

    Hi Mohammed,

    I had a quick look for you and found that attribute MX_COMMUNICATION_METHOD is the one you're looking for.

    However I geuss some additional valuehelp is needed, since for example MX_COMMUNICATION_METHOD = 'INT' appears to translate to Comm. Meth = 'E-mail' in SU01.

    And I also get a warning that "No data maintained for standard communication type 'E-Mail'" when provisioning it.

    I didn't find any valuehelp loadjob for this in the standard job templates, I'm not sure about that.

    Maybe someone else has some experience on this.

    Good luck!

    Regards,

    Wim.

    hi praman,

    CUA is central user administration

    Its a central system where where we maintain / create users.

    For instance : you have 30 systems installed (like ECC6.0 (dev / QA / PROD),

    SRM,BI,CRM...)

    if u get a request from client saying you need to create 50 users in 30

    systems (ie u are giving access to the users in 30 systems).

    So what you do - in each and every sytem u need to create users (user

    creation independent of other system / clients) its a tedious process.

    if at all you have central system(CUA) install,then within 3 to 5 sec you

    will be able to create 50 users in 30 system.

    it enables you to manage several thousand users and their individual role

    assignments.

    How to know that CUA is installed in ur company- Su01 -Create /change user

    -> if you notice "system tab" other than role, profile , logon...then it is

    CUA.

    CUA gets connected to all your child system (BI,SRM,ECC...) using ALE / IDOC

    method.

    CUA only get connected to ABAP systems.

    If at all user wants to reset password / unlock he needs to approach help

    desk / security team

    IDM - Identity Management.

    Gets connected to ABAP system + NON ABAP systems + third party tools

    Adv of IDM : Self service password reset.

    IDM : can be connected and used in combination with an existing CUA.

    or if CUA is not installed ,you can directly go for IDM.

    Enables workflow-based requests for approvals, automating user provisioning

    in multiple back-end systems

    Supports LDAP directories and databases, as well as standards such as SPML

    Supports tight integration with SAP Business Suite 7.0 .

    Regards,
