Question about HCM Configuration for VDS connection

Hi all,

I am trying to connect HCM to IDM as an Identity source.

(ERP is EHP7 and IDM is 8.0.)

According to the IDM configuration manual, the Prerequisites are as follows:

●The Virtual Directory Server is installed.

●The Identity Center is installed and configured.

●The SAP HCM system is installed and contains employee data.

●The user who exports the data from the SAP HCM system has the following PFCG roles assigned:

     ○SAP_HR_LDAP_EXTRACTION (execution of data extraction)

     ○SAP_HR_LDAP_PREPARE_EXTRACTION (needed for attribute mapping)

●An LDAP Connector is configured on the SAP HCM system.

here, can any one help me for the last item?

An LDAP Connector is configured on the SAP HCM system.

What this means?

What should I ask to BC or HCM consultant for this?

thanks in advance.

Hi Dongsu,

Creating LDAP connector is easy and the steps are clearly explained in the config guide however it involves alot of steps to do.

If you have issues, then you can ask for SAP BASIS team to help you out.

Let us know if you need more information. Thanks.

Kind regards,
