The user management engine (UME) can use an SAP NetWeaver Application Server (AS) ABAP as its data source for user management data. This enables you to take advantage of the following:
The AS Java depicts the hierarchy between collective roles and single roles as nested group structures. When you create new groups with the AS Java, the AS Java stores them in its database.
Different interpretations of the "contains in" relationship between ABAP systems and the UME results in a reversal of the visual arrangement of groups. A group representing a collective role is a child element of the group representing a single role. In the ABAP system, the single roles are displayed as child elements of collective roles.
The data source configuration file is dataSourceConfiguration_abap.xml .
