LDAP Directory with J2EE Engine(s)

Description

In this scenario, you are operating any number of SAP NetWeaver AS Java (AS Java) with User Management Engine (UME), where the respective UME uses the directory service as the data source. This means that the user data is also, for example, made available to external systems.

A SAP NetWeaver Portal may be set up on one of the J2EE Engines.

For more information about using a directory service as the data source of the UME, see LDAP Directory as Data Source.
