This addon is located in the Connectors section and its name is SAP Connector.

Agent configuration

This connector could manage only User objects.

  • All active users included in agent configuration will be added to SAP.

  • All inactive users on Soffid will be deleted from SAP.

  • Roles granted to a user will be added to ACTIVITY GROUPS on SAP.

Additionally, the attached SAP Role definition can be used to assign permissions to SOFFID RFC user.

Basics

Operational

Monitoring

After the agent configuration you could check in the monitoring page if the service is running in the Synchronization Server, please go to "Start Menu > Monitoring and reporting > System monitoring".

Tasks

Authoritative

If you are checked "Authorized identity source", an automatic task to load identities from the managed system to Soffid is available, please go to "Start Menu > Processes and Tasks > Manage automatic tasks", and you will something like "Import authoritative data from <AGENT_NAME>".

Reconcile

If your are configured the "Attribute Mapping" tab with some of our objects: "user, account, role, group or grant", an automatic task to synchronize these objects from the managed system to Soffid is available, please go to "Start Menu > Processes and Tasks > Manage automatic tasks", and you will something like "Reconcile all accounts from <AGENT_NAME>".

Synchronization

About the synchronization of the objects, there are two possible options:

  • If you are checked the generic attribute "Read Only" in the "Basics" tab, only the changes in the managed systems will be updated in Soffid. We recommend this options until the global configuration of Soffid will be tested.
  • If you are not checked the generic attribute "Read Only" in the "Basics" tab, all the changes in Soffid or the managed system will be updated in the other. Note that this synchronization must be configured in the "Attribute mapping" tab correctly.
