Including Legacy Systems in Your SAML 2.0 LandscapeLocate this document in the navigation structure


  • You have a SAML 2.0 identity provider and service provider in your landscape.

  • You have configured your legacy systems to accept logon tickets.

  • The user ID of users on the service provider is identical to their user IDs on the legacy systems.


Not all releases of SAP software support Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) 2.0. These systems can still benefit from having SAML 2.0 in the system landscape. Configure your service provider to issue logon tickets when a user logs on. This enables legacy systems within the domain to perform Single Sign-On initiated by the SAML 2 authentication.


  1. Start the SAML 2.0 configuration application (transaction SAML2).
  2. On the Local Provider tab, choose the Service Provider Settings tab.
  3. Choose the Edit pushbutton.
  4. Under Miscellaneous, enter On in the Legacy Systems Support (Issue Logon Ticket) field.
  5. Save your entries.
