New Release Highlights: SAP Identity Management 8.0 SP3

Our SP3 release of SAP Identity Management 8.0 is already available in software center.

The essential news in this release are:

  • New connector with SAP Cloud Identity service to enable hybrid scenarios
  • SAP IdM Development Studio works with Eclipse Neon
  • Implemented feedback from customers and fixed issues in:
    • Upgrade from 7.2
    • Development Studio (Eclipse Plug-Ins)


The lab preview we showed at TechEd last year was the provisioning from SAP Identity Management 8.0 to SAP Cloud Identity service. By integrating with SAP Cloud Identity service, SAP Identity Management 8.0 will be able to manage the identities also for cloud solutions in the future.

The connector is REST-based. As a first version, it supports:

  • Bulk loading users (Initial load) and their attributes to and from SAP Cloud Identity service
  • Creating users on the target system
  • Setting a productive password for a user


These are the usual constants to be configured

and the package content is:


By this integration, a user, which is provisioned to the cloud, would be able to benefit from a single sign-on experience with their HANA Cloud applications or other applications, which have configured trust with the SAP cloud identity provider available as part of the identity authentication service out-of-the-box.

SAP IdM Development Studio works with Eclipse Neon now. Neon requires Java 1.8 and there are some points to take care – I’ll share my experience in a separate short blog.

There are some improvements in the lab phase which include readiness for easier installation and enablement for Rapid Deployment Solution for IdM 8.0, which we hope to announce soon. Stay tuned for the coming release of RDS 8.0.

Also I’m preparing an upgrade of the ADM920 Identity Management 8.0 training environment to SP3 version.

      Thanks for this short intro.

      I'm awaiting your shared esxperience about eclipse neon - and really looking forward to the RDS; clients definitely need "mass changes" and "copy user" tasks - hopefully these will be part of RDS for IDM8 as they used to be in RDS72

      Hi, thank you for the SP3 highlights.  What are the advantages of being able to use Eclipse Neon over Luna?  Can you point me to any how to documents for developing and building contextual-based assignments (process)?  We are in the process of creating an IdM Proof of Concept and would like a better understanding of the security methodology so that we can show the value and benefit to moving to IdM.  It appears that we should be able to minimize the number of roles we currently have that are derived.

      Thank you,
