As announced in my previous blog post, SAP IDM Customer Connection 2021: Extended and Delivered, we selected five additional improvement requests to work on in 2022. We completed two this summer – for details, check my September blog – and now delivered the remaining three improvements

Let’s take a closer look at them!

Add download functionality for tables

This improvement request describes missing export capabilities for tables displayed in IDM UIs. Once downloaded into CSV files, customers could compare, analyze and audit data with external tools.

SAP Note 3254273 - Enhancing most of the tables in IDM UIs with export functionality allows you to export data from most of the displayed tables in IDM UIs into a ".csv" format and save it locally.

When exporting a given table, the selected filtering and column ordering will be preserved in the way that they are currently configured. The table export uses the data that is already available in the IDM UI; no further requests to the IDM database are needed.

Add “Approve with validity” option in the SAP Identity Management REST API

This improvement request and its solution described in SAP Note 3233401 - Add Approve with validity option in the Identity Management REST API allows you to change the validity of approvals in both the REST API and the SAP Identity Management UI. It introduces the new parameters 'NewValidFrom' and 'NewValidTo'. You can use them separately or in combination, depending on which validity value you would like to change. This new feature enhances your UIs based on REST API v2.

Change the validity of multiple roles for a user at the same time

In this improvement request, we were asked to provide a standard solution for changing the validity for multiple roles of a user at the same time, instead of changing them one by one.

To deliver the missing functionality, we added a new button “Change Validity” in the Identity Management User Interface for the attributes MX_ASSIGNMENT, MXREF_MX_ROLE, and MXREF_MX_PRIVILEGE. This new feature allows you to create a request for a validity change of all selected direct assignments in the table simultaneously.

For details, please check SAP Note 3282726 - SAP standard solution for simultaneous change of multiple roles validity of a use...

The delivery of these three improvement requests concludes the 2021/2022 SAP Customer Connection program for SAP Identity Management. Thank you all for participating and supporting us with your input and feedback!
