      Appreciate your sharing.

      May I ask a question? when I access LMS from BizX, it redirect to the logon page and I need fill in user name and password manually. Do you have implementation guide for SSO from BizX to LMS?

      Thank you in advance.

      Hi William,

      You should check Whether User Id in BizX & LMS are same. If not it won’t work.


      Thanks & Regards

      SAP has stated the intention of the UUID (unique identifier from EC personalInfo) 2391798 - UUID - Universal Unique Identifier - FAQ ( is to integrate EC with Talent Modules, LMS being one of them.

      However, if I use the method (Integration Center – A viable and flexible alternative for LMS Connectors ! | SAP Blogs) to extract additional fields to a user output file that the LMS connector consumes, and update UUID to map to STUD_ID (to only have one user in cases of Rehire with New  Employment), then the SSO between BizX and LMS will not work, correct?

      Any way to change that behaviour?

      HI Vidushi,

      Congrats for this tutorial.

      I followed it and tried to apply that to my demo instance.

      Accessing the Learning admin from Bizx works. But when trying to access the "My Learning" dashboard for any user, I get the following error:

      System Info.

      Release: 20200326191555
      Server: 116ps8bcf55t
      Request: /sf/idp/SAML2/SSO/Redirect/company/SFPART046483

       The requested operation is not available.
      Please try again or contact your administrator.

      Do you have any ideas of what's wrong?

      Thank you

      Great tutorial.

      It just needs to be updated. After the 1H 2022 release, the Learning Integration fields in Provisioning are read only or have automatically been set.

      I suggest taking a look on the KB Article 3209088 - Integrating BizX and LMS Post 1H 2022 Release, which  explains how to update the read only fields in Provisioning, for LMS instances created prior to May 20th, 2022 and are not integrated.
