This blog post is part of the series covering Principal Propagation in SAP Integration Suite.

As explained in SAP Cloud Integration help page, you can set up Principal Propagation with SAP BTP to forward the identity of a user across several systems and avoid the use of technical users in each of the systems involved.

In that first part we want to provide you an overview of different Integration use cases where Principal Propagation can be applied.

Use Cases

  • Propagate identity from a BTP application to an On-Premise SAP Backend with mediation
    A BTP application acting as client uses Cloud Integration capability of SAP Integration Suite via SAP Destination service to consume a Backend service.


In this blog post we have tried to cover all (or at least the most important) scenarios where you can make use of Principal Propagation utilizing SAP Integration Suite. In future we might update this blog post with additional use cases.
