Overview

Using the Identity Center and the Virtual Directory Server enables you to connect to various different systems using standard protocols as well as custom developed connectors. The following is a list of systems you can connect to (in the future hopefully also with links to details and examples of how to do it).

To get started, view the SAP NetWeaver Identity Management - IDM Connector Overview presentation. The presentation gives an introduction to identity management connectivity and services with SAP NetWeaver Identity Management. It describes in detail the various connectors available and presents the IDM Connector Development Kit (CDK) for non-SAP applications. Also read the related blog.

If you are looking for an integration with a particular solution which does not yet exist, we are very confident that the SAP NetWeaver IDM is able to connect and provision to that system, too. Most connections can be done on a project basis and they may become available for additional customers after the first implementation. This connector creation can be done by SAP consulting or third party vendors. Depending on the interface ability of the particular solution, the integration will be easy or more complex.

To learn how partners of SAP as well as independent software vendors (ISVs) can use the Connector Development Kit (CDK) to create an IDM connector for their application and get certified by the SAP Integration and Certification Center (ICC), refer to the related blog.

Identity Services

Accessing Identity Stores via Identity Services (SPML etc.)

Provisioning Framework

General Concept (Provisioning/Deprovisioning)

For easier implementation and a quick start the product comes with the so called "Provisioning Framework". The provisioning framework comes with a set of jobs, tasks scripts which ease the connectivity to various systems. This framework can be extended in order to meet custom needs for adoption and extension.

The document Identity Management for SAP System Landscapes: Configuration Guide gives you details here.

Development of Custom Connectors / Connector Development Kit (CDK)

Partners of SAP as well as potential partners and independent software vendors (ISVs) are invited to use the Connector Development Kit (CDK) to create an IDM connector for their application, and to integrate the application in the IDM landscape. This connector can then be certified by the SAP Integration and Certification Center (ICC). Also refer to the related blog.

There are APIs available for Connectors and Event Agents, for example. The TechEd session SIM360 covers these topics.
