SAP NetWeaver AS - Directory Interface for User Management via LDAP (BC-LDAP-USR)[1]

The BC-LDAP-USR interface scenario will no longer be available for certification. Existing certifications will remain valid until they expire after 3 years. Please contact SAP ICC for more information.

SAP's directory interface lets you consolidate user data from SAP systems with data from directories that implement the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP). Using a directory service (including the SAP Central User Administration), you can maintain the data from a single point of contact.

At most companies, user data is stored in the directories associated with various software systems and components, such as e-mail, telephony systems, operating systems, and other data-dependent applications. By using the directory interface for user management via LDAP, you can consolidate this data in a single, central directory often called the Meta Directory. This consolidation enables you to eliminate redundancy and ensure data consistency across multiple applications, while offering all of the advantages of a single point of administration.
