SAP Identity Management APIs (Security and Identity Management)
This document covers interfaces (APIs) that can be used by identity and access management (IAM) vendors to manage SAP users and role assignments within their systems. The APIs exist for both ABAP and Java systems. The ABAP APIs are provided as Business Application Programming Interfaces (BAPIs). The Java APIs are provided with the User Management Engine (UME) interfaces. This documentation provides an overview of how to use the BAPIs and the Java APIs for identity management. It does not cover all of the details, but shows the general approach and highlights those aspects where special considerations are necessary. For details about using specific APIs, see the API documentation.
