Any how-to guides on calling web services from IdM?

Hi all

I have an external system responsible for managing certificates and I don't want to develop a connector to it because it offers all web services I need.

I cannot figure out whether SAP IdM has a native support for calling web services for provisioning purposes.

As for me, a support for web services should be one of the key features of such the products.

Meanwhile I cannot find a good guidance, even simple guide on how to invoke an web service in case of external system doesn't provide any connectivity supported by IdM, but does provide web services.

Yes, I saw few posts around GRG, but it is not about general usage of web services, it's very Access Control specific and it's up to me to expand it onto general web service usage.

Maybe I overlooked such a guide and someone can point me, please?

Or maybe my request is strange and nobody else agree that there is a demand for calling web services from IdM?

Thanks and regards,

Try the VDS documentation, I belive there is some stuff there regarding communication with webservices.
