Authentication in SAP Mobile PlatformLocate this document in the navigation structure

A security provider verifies the identities of application users and administrators who request access via one or more configured login modules.

Device user authentication and administrator authentication are configured differently:

  • Device users are authenticated with custom SAP Mobile Platform Server security profiles created by the platform administrator in Management Cockpit. For SAP back ends, SSO authentication can be configured.
  • Administrators are authenticated with the Admin security profile. For first-time logins, administrators are authenticated with the System Login (Admin Only) authentication provider. Once logged in, administrators for production systems should immediately reconfigure the Admin security profile to use the enterprise security back end using Management Cockpit.
