Configuring User Mapping with User ID and Password on an AS JavaLocate this document in the navigation structure


  • The AS Java has a functional connection to the System Landscape Directory (SLD)

  • A system exists in the SLD to use as an identifier for the user mapping. Ideally this is the target system, but this is not required.

For more information, see Working with SLD .


Use this procedure to enable SAP NetWeaver Application Server (AS) Java users to access back-end systems with Single Sign-On (SSO) with a different user ID and password.

For more information, see User Mapping and the AS Java .


  1. Create a destination for the target system.

    For the destination, enter the following values:

    • Choose User Mapping in the Authentication field.

    • Under System Mapping for User Authentication , choose a system from the SLD to use to identify the user mapping in the Target System field.

      This is the system that appears in the user mapping interface, when you choose which system to map users to.

    For more information, see Destination Service .

  2. Map users to back-end systems and users.

    You have the following options for performing this mapping:

    • The administrator maps the users to their users in the back-end system.

      This requires the administrator to keep track of user IDs in the portal and their user IDs and passwords in the back-end systems.

      When the administrator configures a mapping for a user, the user management engine (UME) by default checks the mapped user ID and password against the reference system. You can disable the check for administrators.

      To disable the check, set the UME property ume.usermapping.admin.pwdprotection= FALSE .

      For more information, see the following:

    • Let users map themselves.

      This requires users to know what systems they need to map to and their user IDs and passwords in those systems.


      To map their own user IDs, users require authorizations for self-management.
