The Identity Center contains a central place for storing identity data - the so called Identity Store. The data in the Identity Store is located in the Identity Center Database. The Identity Center is also responsible for provisioning identity data into various connected systems (so called consuming systems) and also retrieving identity data from systems (so called leading systems).

All objects (mostly identities) are stored in the Identity Store using an extensible schema. This is very much comparable with a schema in LDAP directory servers. The schema consists of

  • Entry types (like people, roles, groups, permissions, etc.)
  • Attributes which are connected to the entry types. Attributes are for example names, unique ids, email addresses etc.

The Identity Center provides a framework for building specific Tasks and Workflows around identities. Typical topics in this area are

  • Self-services
  • Delegated Administration
  • Approvals

Other topics which can be handled with the Identiy Center are:

  • User related tasks (like disabling, locking)
  • Passwords (initial passwords and password provisioning)

Context Variables:
The purpose of context variables is to have variables which are transferred between tasks within the same task hierarchy. Find more information in the documentation.

SAP NetWeaver Identity Management Console (MMC):
The MMC has a straightforward tree structure to manage the Identity Center. Read the blog "Identifying those Identity Management Icons" to get some help with navigating the MMC tree structure.
