Define System User of the Directory Service


The SAP system logs on to the directory server with the authentication data of the directory service (system user).


  1. In the initial screen of the directory service maintenance (transaction LDAP), choose LDAP Administration a System User, or the System User pushbutton.

    The system displays the Display "LDAP System User" View: Overview screen.

  2. Switch to change mode and select New Entries.
  3. Enter the required data:



    User ID

    Logical name of the system user

    Distinguished Name

    Name of the system user defined in the directory


    Authentication mechanism for access, such as Simple bind (user ID and password)

    Store Credentials

    Storage location of the user password, such as
    Secure Store
    Simple Store (Password in plain text)


  4. Activate Read Rights Only so that the user does not have any authorization to write to the directory server.
  5. To change or delete the credentials (that is, the user password), use the functions (change) and (delete).
  6. Save your entries.
