User Management for e-Commerce ERP

Former Member

Hello Experts,

I am working on e-Commerce ECC6.0 version.

Had some questions in the area of user management:

A)

The scenario is that the e-commerce application needs to be integrated to Poral, now my doubt is which userType option is the best to be chosen for such cases.

Is it mandatory to use user type "ERP e-Commerce logon via UME"?

I have not worked with UME before and hence if you can also share some links / pointers in that area?

what other SSO logon options are available?

B) In case there is no portal and e-Commerce is working as standalone application:

There is already a ECC6.0 system in place where until now customers have been maintained. The client has been using a custom Online Store application on which login was via the customer id. Now they want to use e-Commerce for ERP, but still want the logon to be via the customer id only. In such case the only option that I can think of is via "R3_SU05Customer_LoginCustomerNo" userType. But since su05 type is not recommended now, I was wondering if there could be some other option as well? Can you guide..

Thanks

Thanks Easwar for the information, What could be disadvantages of integration e-Commerce with Netweaver Portal. One that I can think of the need to synchronize the users on both the systems

There won't be any disadvantages as you might think. On the contrary, by delivering E-Commerce through the Portal you can make use of the single sign on. With user mapping in LDAP, you can still design a system that could use the customer Id for portal logon that will map to a SU01 user in the CRM. Use of UME will let you maintain SU01 users, their roles in one central place.

Use of NetWeaver portal for external customers gives you more options to deliver any role based applications to the customers - such as reports, store locator / dealer finder etc.

UME makes the user management simple and central to the Security / System group.

UME is not something any developer / functional analyst will do. We should leave that to the security group. If you insist, here is a starter [Help on UME.|http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw04/helpdata/en/e5/618a3eacd49076e10000000a114084/frameset.htm]

See section 2.6 of this [E-Commerce with ERP Business Configuration Guide|https://websmp205.sap-ag.de/~sapdownload/011000358700002100812006E/Config_Guide_ECO_ERP_50.pdf]

There are some steps on migrating from SU05 to SU01. You can always have the current customer number as the alias for the internet user.
