Certified Integrations with SAP IAS/IPS

The following table lists the products that have certified integrations with SAP IAS/IPS.

User Provisioning

  • Top-down synchronization – In this approach, the application is the target, and SAP Cloud Platform Identity Authentication Service is the source. Users are initially created in SAP Cloud Platform Identity Authentication Service and then synced down to the application.

  • Bottom-up synchronization – In this approach, the application is the source and SAP Cloud Platform Identity Authentication Service is the target. Users are created by the application and then uploaded from the source application to SAP Cloud Platform Identity Authentication Service.

In both the top-down and the bottom-up approach, the Sales Cloud application must implement the SCIM-based APIs to synchronize users.

The following table lists each application that Sales Cloud Single Sign-On supports and indicates which user synchronization methods are supported by each application

Sales Cloud Application Supports Bottom-Up Sync Supports Top-Down Sync
SAP Commissions                 ✔️                ✔️
Embedded Analytics (SCA)                ✔️
Sales Cloud AI for Commissions                ✔️

      Thank you!

      According to more generic Sales Cloud SSO Guide Top-Down provisioning to Commissions is not  supported.

      User Provisioning - SAP Help Portal

      At the same time Commissions-specific guide describes configuration of exactly this type of provisioning.

      Top-Down User Synchronization - SAP Help Portal

      Which one should I trust?

      Hi Eugene Borodin

      You should be referred to this portal: User Provisioning – SAP Help Portal

      Yes, SAP Commissions can support both top-down and bottom-up user sync but at present, it's certified only for bottom-up...

      Product team will announce Top-Down approach feature in coming releases through release notes.. Later documentation for User Provisioning will be updated.

      Hi, Yoga

      According to my experience, IAS -> Commissions (=Top-Down) provisioning only creates Sales Performance Portal users, no Commissions user or Participant created.

      Thanks, Eugene Borodin

      Let's have a discussion tomorrow and you can send me the meeting invite.

      There are 2 types of user's

      Sales Users  - It should be coming from the customer's HR dept through the ODI file (OGPT or OGPO)

      Commissions Users (Admin) - It should be created through IAS Portal & Assign the appropriate group which will sync through the application (Top-Down Approach)
