Automating Portal Role Assignment

Currently Portal Role and LDAP Group are mapped manually by Security Team.Portal is currently having UME Data source as LDAP. .Current approach would create user id and Role in relevant ECC and BW system. LDAP would be used only to have personal data like Name, Address etc. No ECC/BW Z* Role(Technical Role) would be assigned in LDAP. That would be done in CUA, which connects all ECC/BW system.We have thought to creating a Custom Table and RFC would fetch user details and take the correct Portal Role from the table and assign the Portal Role to the user in Portal via Java Code(might be we use webservice).

Now my question is is this approach correct?As we are using ITS iviews,so if we assign Portal Roles to the user,when they login and click the iviews they wouldn't get SSO screen and same userids present in ECC (SSO done with ECC).

Is this good approach?Please can you help with any new approach.Our Portal in 7.01

Please keep in mind

1)Our UME datasource is LDAP

2)We don't want Role Migration tool to be used.

3)We want to automate the role assignment process
