Purpose

BAPIs or SAP standard functions for USR are pretty handy in managing SAP user data in most cases but how about if an external system needs a USER GUID instead of BNAME to search SAP user ? What if a case of that you need to manage SAP user data only by GUID (Identity)?       


Class CL_IDENTITY_FACTORY is providing very useful functions for user & for user Identity such as searching, deleting, creating, checking, and more. Even the use of CL_IDENTITY_FACTORY is not complicated as it has only static & public methods which giving you direct access without instantiating an object .

Example

If you want to check SAP user existence in SAP system, Checking USR table might be the simplest way. However, here is an other way to do that



DATA : LV_BNAME                     TYPE          XUBNAME,

             LS_MESSAGE                TYPE          SYMSG,

             LS_BNAME_EXIST        TYPE          SUID_ST_IDENTITY.

* Check User existance

   LV_BNAME  = CV_USERNAME.

   CL_IDENTITY_FACTORY=>EXISTENCE_CHECK(

     EXPORTING

       IV_BNAME                = LV_BNAME

     IMPORTING

       ES_IDENTITY           = LS_BNAME_EXIST  ).

**

*  IF LS_BNAME_EXIST IS INITIAL.

*    RAISE EXCEPTION

**********************

*    RETURN.

*  ELSE.

*  ENDIF.

   IS_BNAME_EXIST  = LS_BNAME_EXIST.



Extra

You can  also send a query for user data or deal with multiple users or get info of BPs assigned to the users. To get further & deeper handling, check out class CL_IDENTITY  .
