SAP SuccessFactors What's New Viewer

SAP Identity Authentication Service Support for External Users

New hires in SAP SuccessFactors Onboarding can now be authenticated using SAP Identity Authentication Service (IAS) before day 1.

In addition to employees, Onboarding external users are now authenticated using the SAP Identity Authentication Service common authentication method.

Here's a screenshot of the list of new hires including Onboarding external users in SAP Identity Authentication Service:

Configuration Requirements

  • Employee authentication is configured in your existing SAP Identity Authentication Service (IAS) configuration.

  • You've configured the SAP Identity Provisioning filter for external hires.

  • You've configured the account activation e-mail in SAP Identity Authentication Service for onboarding new hires.

  • You've disabled the welcome email template for new hire and rehire in Onboarding to prevent two welcome emails from being sent to the new hire.

  • No account exists in SAP Identity Authentication Service with the email address or username of the external user.
