User Account ManagementLocate this document in the navigation structure

User accounts have to be configured with the type of user authentication that takes place when the Consumer system calls the web services on the Provider system. The following three options are offered.

  • Business User: The user logged on to the SAP Gateway also logs on the SAP system using their own user and credentials.

  • Anonymous user: The SAP system is called with an anonymous user.

  • Service User: The SAP system is called with a predefined service user.

For setting up the communication from the Consumer systems to the Provider systems, only the Business User option is required.
