Note Note

When using the UME with AS ABAP, the AS Java users must exist in the AS ABAP data source before you install the AS Java. If you have several AS Java systems with AS ABAP data sources, we recommend that you create system-specific users using the naming convention provided above. In addition, you must complete the initial password setup for the AS ABAP users, before installing the AS Java.

For more information, see UME Data Sources.

In addition the AS Java creates service users and the emergency user.
