ID User name when provisioning new user account in R/3 System with CUP

Former Member

Is it possible to configure somehow a rule in CUP for ID user names to be created in the backend system when direct auto provisioning is done?

Example: User_A creates a request for a new account in System SAP S1.

Such user will be created in S1 under ID "XXXX_User_A"

Many thanks in advance. Best regards,

if you want building rules for new users you can user Netweaver Identity Management.

But I completely agree with Dylan - you really really want to try to have a SINGLE user ID in your systems for a person.

That's not only helpful for compliance, it's also useful for technical enhancements like Single Sign-On and many other things.

I usually try to link ActiveDirectory to CUP and retrieve user data, including the UserID from there.

Hello Imanol,

To my knowledge there is no way of automating the naming convention for users. Whatever is defined in the form is what gets created/updated.

From an audit trail, this is a good thing to have the user consistent with the request.
