In This article, we will discuss how to configure LDAP connector in SAP.
Let us discuss what is LDAP.
What Is LDAP In SAP
LDAP also called as Lightweight Directory Access Protocol is a a set of protocols for accessing information directories.
It is based on the X.500 standard but is a “lightweight” version of Directory Access Protocol (DAP).
The LDAP server stores the directory information in a database and the most common use of LDAP is to provide central place for authentication.
In SAP, we use LDAP mostly as a data source in UME (user management engine) or can be used to authenticate Organization’s Windows user to use services like ESS/MSS portals in SAP etc.
Create TCP/IP connection RFC
T-code: SM59 –>Create
Maintain the Gateway details and test the connection:
Goto T-code–> LDAP –> Connector
LDAP server details needs to be configured:
Configuration In SAP GRC System
IMG projects–> GRC node–> common component settings –> Integration framework.
(We can skip this step as Create Connectors is already done via SM59)
Define Connection Types:
Define Connector Groups:
Maintain Connection Settings:
Maintain connection settings by assigning LDAP to scenarios as below:
Perform same configuration with other integration scenarios:
Maintain Mapping of LDAP Attributes:
Assign Default Connector:
Maintaining the Group Field Mapping
We need to Maintain the group field mapping for both connector action 3 & 4 i.e PROV and AUTH actions as shown below:
Maintaining the Group Parameter Mapping
We need to Maintain the group parameter mapping for both connector action 3 & 4 i.e PROV and AUTH actions.
Maintain Connector Settings:
LDAP Assign attributes:
Maintain Data Sources Configuration :
Add the LDAP connector and sequence as search data source
Add user authentication Data source
Set end user verification as: YES
Set LDAP user search as realtime as below:
