SAP Universal ID – What to Expect
May 3, 2021 – SAP Community will take a phased approach to support SAP Universal ID, with an initial goal of consolidating member content.
The first phase begins on Monday, May 3, 2021, when SAP Community enables a Universal ID login option (also known as Conditional Universal ID).
The Conditional Universal ID login will allow community users to generate a Universal ID account and link other accounts to it. In this phase, members may opt to use an S/P-user ID(s) or their SAP Universal ID credentials to log in. The rest of the community experience will remain the same.
With this first phase Universal ID, we ask that you sign up for a Universal ID account, which will allow you to link your profiles.
In preparation for the second phase, SAP Community will provide a tool that enables members to consolidate content associated with their various accounts to their Universal ID. When a user runs the tool, all blog posts, questions, comments, and reputation elements will be associated with the member's Universal ID. More information about this tool will be provided later in 2021.
In the second phase, SAP Community will support the SAP Universal ID native integration, where the authentication relies only on the SAP Universal ID credentials. SAP Community will move to the second phase when most of our members have created their Universal ID.
