List of topics

SAML 2.0 in AS Java

  • Step-by-Step guide for SSO from MS Sharepoint 2010 to SAP EP 7.0x
    This wiki page describes only the necessary configuration for single sign-on from Microsoft SharePoint 2010 to SAP Portal 7.0x. It does not cover the other direction when user logged into SAP Portal has to have SSO to SharePoint 2010. The example setup assumes that the user IDs in ADFS 2.0, AS Java 7.2 and SAP Portal 7.0x are the same.
  • Single Sign-On with SAML 2.0 and ABAP Systems Supporting SAP Logon Tickets
    This wiki page describes implementing a single sign-on mechanism with SAML 2.0 in a network including an ABAP system which does not support SAML 2.0 authentication. Explanations are based on a sample real-life scenario.
  • Single Sign-On between SAP Portal and SuccessFactors
    This document describes how to enable single sign-on from a customer's on-premise SAP Portal to SuccessFactors. Single sign-on is based on standard SAML 2.0 mechanisms and the Identity Provider of SAP Netweaver Single Sign-On is used.
  • Implementation of Identity Federation for SAML 2.0
    This Wiki describes how to configure identity federation for Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) 2.0 so that the users can attain federated identities for authentication. It also gives some example scenarios that would help the user federate identities.
  • SAML 2.0 and SAP GUI Single Sign-On in one and the same scenario

    This blog offers a solution to the scenario in which the interoperable SAML assertion could be used for the issuance of a well-known X.509 client certificate and then the certificate to be used for authentication to applications such as SAP GUI that do not support SAML authentication mechanisms, but accept X.509 client certificates.
