SAP IdM Custom Add-on for Notifications management – on WD&SAPUI5

As we all know the standard Notification process in IdM is not very flexible.

In order to have an easier way for our customers to manage the standard SAP IdM notification process, we have developed a custom add-on for IdM notifications. So here is what this add-on provides:

    • User friendly UIs for SAP IdM notification management
    • Easy UI capabilities for notification update
    • Import/export of notifications
    • UI data validations

1. First we started by separating the logic in three parts:

  • SAPUI5/WD IdM notification administration UI / Back-end validations
  • SAP IdM logic(custom Notification repository with some javascript/java logic for managing the notification process and customer logic)
  • User notifications

2. The UI-s:

     2.1. SAPUI5 Notification UIs:


    • Language/Organization UI:


    • Receiver UI:


    • Translation UI:


     2.2 SAP WD Notification UIs:


3. In addition, we have implemented an easier way for UI customization :

  • Additional validations can be easily added into the back-end, if needed
  • System data visible into the UIs, as Repository, can be changed easily with the system description(ACTIVE_DIRECTORY -> Sys: Active Directory), if needed
  • The systems visible into the UI can be predefined(if the customer needs, not all systems to be shown into the Notification UI)
  • IdM logic can be easily changed according to customer needs

Note: here is a link to a simpler version – SAP IdM  Custom Add-on for Notifications management – based on custom table

Hope you like it 🙂

      Thanks for sharing Simona.

      I would have loved to have this a month ago when I had to adapt trigger notifications to use the In Database templates for translations, I see I am not the only one who tackled this problem. I already see that your solution is more flexible than what I did.

      Hi Julien,

      Yes, the standard Notification management is not so easy for initial set up&customization, but at least you did it 🙂 . But here the real problem comes, when the customer has 2/3 systems(dev/tests/qa and PRD) and you have to manage all of the notifications based on the systems. We had one earlier version of this add-on, where we only used back-end and IdM logic, so the customers only had to import/export files using IdM job.

      Thank for sharing your experience!
