the 'import proposal' option for the LDAPMAP transaction is disabled


I am trying to set LDAP authentication for my SAPGUI users - so they can login with their Active Directory logon/password

At the Mapping stage I am trying to import a proposal - but the Utilities --> Import proposal  option is greyed out

In fact everything is disabled but the 'Export XML'

Any idea what is missing ?

I am SAP_ALL profile - so I don't think its authorization

We have NetWeaver 7.0  SP 16   ( 7.2 Kernel )

You cannot synchronize existing AD passwords to SAP and you cannot redirect the SAPGui logon screen password to probe AD passwords. Not possible.

What you can however do is "hook" the password in cleartext before (re)setting it in AD and then send it to SAP as an initial or even productive password (eg. when the user resets their own password in IDM).

But none of these are SSO and LDAP sync cannot sync the password. Simply not supported on the SAP side (which triggers the process) and also not on AD side (to return cleartext passwords).

Not possible...
