SAML 2.0 Support for SSO
I am hearing conflicting things about the support for SAML 2.0. Which SAP/Netewaver supports SAML 2.0 for SSO? Can Netweaver 7.0 EhP1 systems support SAML 2.0?
AS Java 7.0x/7.1x/7.2/7.3 - yes
AS ABAP 7.0x - no
AS ABAP 7.1x/7.3 - yes* (only in double stack installation)
SAML 2.0 support:
AS Java 7.0x/7.1x - no
AS Java 7.2/7.3 - yes
AS ABAP 7.01/7.1x - no
AS ABAP 7.02/7.3 - yes
I would recommend you to use SAML 2.0 although it might require an additional system or upgrade of your current one. For more details how to 'enable' SAML 2.0 support for older system you may check the following forum: [Single Sign On - Sharepoint 2010 to SAP using ADFS|Single Sign On - Sharepoint 2010 to SAP using ADFS].
