In order to facilitate a single sign-on between the SAP User Management Engine (UME) and SAP systems, user accounts can be replicated to the relevant SAP systems. The data is replicated in one direction only, from UME to the SAP system. Data cannot be replicated from the SAP system to UME.
UME supports replication of user data to SAP systems with release 4.6d or higher. The administrator has to configure in UME to which SAP systems user data is replicated. User data is replicated automatically when user data is created, changed or deleted in the UME.
