UME ABAP Error in Backend Service

Hi Everyone,

We are having problems with an ABAP based UME on EP7. SSO is working and when we create users in R/3(ECC 6.0) we can immediately use them to log on to the portal. However, when we go to User Administration --> Identity Management on the portal we get an error "An error occured when initializing a backend service; contact your system administrator".

It does not seem to be the authorization of the SAPJSF user either as we have assigned the proper authorizations(SAP_BC_JSF_COMMUNICATION).

Because of this error we are not able to add portal roles to users. Hence, when we try to access the UME configuration under System Configuration it says that we are not authorized to access the UME Config Editor.

Has anyone encountered this problem before? I would greatly appreciate your inputs. Generous points will be awarded!

Here is a link to the screen shots:


Thanks again!
