SAP MDG & SAP Information Steward: Single Sign On (SSO) working
just an small update on the work I’m doing with SAP MDG and SAP Information Steward integration: Last week I invested some time in getting the SSO working on an internal system. The good news is:
1. Its working as expected
2. Its pretty simple to configure the SSO.
SAP MDG comes with a DQR (Data Quality Remediation) scenario (see here: http://scn.sap.com/community/mdm/master-data-governance/blog/2013/10/22/sap-mdg-sap-information-steward-a-perfect-combination-for-data-quality-remediation-dqr-scenarios). In general you can integrate any Data Quality tool into this framework. Most of the time I have used SAP Information Steward but i have never tested the SSO between both stacks. The disadvantage of not having SSO configured is that the end users have manually login each time the DQ-dashboard comes up in the SAP MDG User Interface for DQR. With a configured SSO between both stack the users get automatically logged in into the dashboard! – Big advantage, big simplification!
What to do?
On high level you need to do the following steps:
- Define a authentication system in CMC – A wizard exists
- Generate and import certificates – with SAP tools provides in your SAP Information Steward installation
- Define SSO in your configuration of SAP Information Steward
- Restart Tomcat/ Web Server of SAP Information Steward
- Define SAP ERP/MDG roles to be SSO’ed in SAP Information Steward
- Give the SAP users the correct right in SAP Information Steward
Instead of writing again a guide I would like to mention these detailed guides:
