Query an SAP server for import of users. Same principle as querying an active directory server?

Does anyone know if it's possible to import users from an SAP server just like I've done with my active directory users?

Can I use the User authentication settings to do the same with an SAP server?

Had anyone done this? Any pointers? is it the same principle as searching active directory...... i.e.... 


Thanks guys

according to SAP help pages:
SAP can also import LDAP users (like the KACE) but has not its own LDAP compatible directory services.
So you can import in SAP and KACE the same users from your LDAP (or AD, which is in fact LDAP with additional functions) but not from the SAP environment itself.

  • Thanks Niko. Yes I was aware that SAP could import LDAP users for authentication and access rights. But I was looking for a more direct access to the SAP server. I needed to see all users and not only the ones coming from LDAP.... i.e... "active directory". I was hoping to import them into my SMA users list to add to my AD users. You wouldnt know of a way to do this would you? - akmagnum 3 months ago
    • they need to be in the database, so checking where. Probably SAP support can help you here. - Nico_K 3 months ago
