This tool can provide an option to manage the external users, which are neither HR relevant, nor in any other way connected to the sources systems currently used within IdM.
The logic can be separated in three parts:
- SAP WD UI - for managing the external users information
- Back-end logic for UI search and validations
- SAP IdM logic(after the external users are created/changed the master data is updated in IdM and provisioned to the back-end systems)
Demo of this tool can be seen here - External Users Add on for SAP IdM - YouTube
1. WD UI - External users UI:
Note: in case the HR system can't be use to manage the user's source information
