Hello experts,

I am having a standalone Web Dynpro Application with the attribute sap.authentication = true.

Is there a possibility that also Portal Users can logon via this scree or can only Backen Users logon here?

Thanks in advance

Felix

I believe it is for the Portal users.

either you can use the admin user or u can crate some user in portal.

If you Use ABAP version to create user id, you may need to create the users by goig to the system.

Hi Anoop,

well actually I am not sure if the logon screen of a standalone application is for the portal users.

Because I can log on there with a backenduser, whicht is also a portal user.

But I can't log on with a portal user.

Best regards

Hi Baskaran,

thanks for your answer.

But if I am understanding this tutorial right, this is more regarding the mapping of roles etc. to users.

Actually, all I want is that a user can log on to my standalon application just in the way he is logging on to the portal (same user ID, same password). Is there a possibility to achieve that?

Probably I am not completely aware of the differnce between the UME Users and the Backend Users.

At the moment I think that UME Users are users which are administrated on WebAS (Poratl Users!?)

The backend users are users which are administrated in the SAP System.

Thanks and best regards

Hi Felix,

I understand what you are trying to achieve. You need UME user name/Password to run your Webdynpro application. Your webdynpro application is deployed and runs from WAS. If your application expects a basic authentication then you need to do this or write your own custom coding which does the UME api's.

Hi Baskaran,

thank you for your answer!

I think I know now, what I need to do.

Could just please help me to get the wording?

UME name/password is the password for the authentication at the WebAS!?

If your application expects a basic authentication then you need to do this...

What do you mean exactly with "this"?

Sorry, I think I a still a bit confused with the different logon types.

Best regards

Hi Felix,

What i meant was that you have to go with UME option. Please find the following links which explains more authentication possibilities and code snippet.

Hi Baskaran,

thank you very much for the links.

Unfortunatelly they all lead to the same destination.

Nevertheless I managed it to create my own login module. But the example refers only to J2EE applications.

Do you know if I can user this new login module also with my WebDynpro Java application, in that way, that the standard login screen is using the new module (and by this, is authenticatin at the UME instead of the backend).

Or do I also have to create a completely new logon screen?

And in this case how can I connect this new logon screen with my WD Java application?

Thanks in advance and

best regards

Felix

Hi Felix,

Probably Your UME is Pointing to ABAP Store not the Java Stack,You have to configure your UME for JAVA Store.

Have a look on this thread as well.

Hi Siddharth,

but I can log on to the portal with a UME User, which is not available in the ABAP System.

On the other side the logon to my standalone application with this user is not possible, but it is possible to log on to this application with a ABAP User.

Is there a possibility to tell the application to authenticate at the Database, just as the portal?

Best regards

Felix
