We are implementing CLM 9,0 with contract generation on NW 7.3 SPS06 ( JAVA)
Following concerns or thoughts we came accross.
1) CLM application can point to use LDAP as well as NW UME as ( data source): even there are others.. but my focus is in these 2.
I would like to know.. what should be best approach and is there any difference in both cases. In terms of roles, CLM security profiles assignments.
I believe in either case access level will remain with in CLM and only authentication could happen via LDAP or via NW UME.
2) We also like to use Portal SSO to CLM. I have seen some blogs.. that it is possible. But again not sure.. how would our access assignment should work.
I have seen config guide , security guide already but i could not find the best recommended approach.
Basically is there any difference in-terms of how CLM will behave when it comes to access control and assignment in both the cases.
I have seen this link in the forum as: http://scn.sap.com/community/sourcing/blog/2012/11/07/sourcingclm-7-sp3-and-netweaver-ume-authentication-the-sap-way
which says we can point NW JAVA UME to LDAP and let CLM use NW-UME as driver. Would this be the best approach suggested?
Just thought of getting some inputs for por’s and cons’ if possible. Thanks
