View User Profile for Internet Users

Hi Portal Knowledgeable Ones,

What are options for allowing the internet portal users to VIEW (display only) their user profile information (email, telephone, user name, address, etc) on the SAP backend system. The standard SAP iView (Personalize - User Profile) provides too much functionality. We don't want users to be able to UPDATE this information self-service.

One option is to display SU50 via WebGui, but this page is not that very user-friendly. What component is the the standard SAP iView (Personalize - User Profile) using? Are their other transactions, components that I could expose on the portal?

We are running SAP EP 6.0 SP13. We also have implemented the CUA infrastructure.

Thanks,

Kevin

This did not solve my problem. When I change ume.admin.allow_selfmanagement = false, the standard SAP iView (Personalize - User Profile) returns this error:

<b>"No Access

You have no permission to perform this action."</b>

This is not acceptable. I need the user to be able to display these user profile fields. With this setting, they will not be able to see anything.

I did not change the parameter UME.Manage_My_Profile. I'm lost on how to do this. Updating it seems to be different than the other one. Do I need to change this parameter along with the other one? How does a person change this parameter?

Thanks,

Kevin

Hi Kevin,

you NEED to work with the UME action Manage_My_Profile in order to enable user to view and modify their profile.

Any user with a role that has this UME Action can do the above. You assign UME actions to portal roles in the portal in the PCD Studio. Here a short description:

1. Go to Content Administration -> Portal Content

2. Change the super_admin_role for example by navigating to Portal Content -> Portal Administrators -> Super Administrators -> Super Administration

3. On the right pane switch the Property Category to "User Management Permissions"

4. Look for Manage_My_Profile and set it to "Yes"

5. Save the role and check your profile again

Hope this helps,

Robert

PS: Unfortunately there is no possibility to only view the user attributes, yet. This should be possible with the UME action Read_My_Profile introduced with NW2004s.

Only by integrating the LDAP read-only you would be able on other releases to achieve the same.
