Configure SAP Cloud Platform Identity Authentication user provisioning

As an administrator, once you've set up Single-Sign On (SSO), your next step is to configure automated user provisioning to authorize, create, modify, or delete your users' identity once in G Suite, and have the changes to that identity reflected in SAP Cloud Platform Identity Authentication.

Set up user provisioning for the SAP Cloud Platform Identity Authentication application
  1. Sign in to your Google Admin console.

    Sign in using your administrator account (does not end in @gmail.com).

  2. From the Admin console Home page, go to Apps and then SAML apps.

    To see Apps on the Home page, you might have to click More controls at the bottom. 

  3. Click the SAP Cloud Platform Identity Authentication application.
  4. Select User provisioning.
  5. Under User provisioning, click Set up user provisioning.
    You are prompted for a username and password for a System User on your SAP account.
  6. In a new tab, follow the following steps for creating a System User on SAP:

    1. Login into your SAP Cloud Platform Identity Authentication admin console: https://YOUR-TENANT-ID.accounts.ondemand.com/admin/

    2. On the left side pane, click Users & Authorizations.

    3. In the drop down menu, click Administrators.

    4. In the bottom of the middle pane which shows the list of administrators, click + Add.

    5. Select System as the administrator type.

    6. Enter Google as the name of the system administrator.

    7. Make sure that Manage Users and Manage Groups is set to On under Configure Authorizations.

    8. Click Save.

      Now that the system administrator account has been created, you need to set up a password for it.

    9. On the System administrator details page, click Set Password for your newly-created Google system administrator.

    10. Enter and re-enter a strong, random password for this system administrator account. Do not use any of your existing passwords. Here are some guidelines for using a strong password. The User ID input box is disabled because a User ID will be automatically generated later.

    11. At the bottom right of the page, click Save.
      You're redirected to the System administrator details page.

    12. Click Set Password.

    13. Copy the newly generated User ID.

  7. Paste the User ID copied from the previous step into the Username input field in the Authorize step of the user provisioning wizard.

  8. Enter the password of the Google system administrator account on your SAP system.

  9. Click Next.

  10. Enter the SCIM URL endpoint of your SAP account.
    We have pre-populated this field. Replace YOUR-TENANT-ID with your tenant ID. This is the same tenant ID which you see in your SAP Cloud Platform Identity Authentication admin console URL:
    (https://YOUR-TENANT-ID.accounts.ondemand.com/admin).
  11. In the Map attributes dialog box:
    1. Next to the selected Cloud Directory attribute, click the Down arrow Down Arrow to map to the corresponding SAP Cloud Platform Identity Authentication attribute. Attributes marked with (*) must be mapped.
    2. Click Next.
  12. (Optional) In the Set provisioning scope dialog box, add a group to restrict provisioning to members of groups you define:
    1. Click the underscore and begin typing your group name. 
      A list of available groups appears.
    2. Selecting one adds it and opens another underscore to use to add another. Add more groups, if necessary. 
    3. To remove any group you've added, click Edit Edit next to it.
  13. Once you’re done, click Finish.
  14. Review the information in the Provisioning summary dialog box, then click OK.
  15. Click Activate provisioning.
    Note: If you added groups using the Set provisioning scope dialog box, you must choose a scope. Otherwise, the Activate Provisioning button remains grayed out. You must set the app to On for everyone or On for some organizations and refresh the page before activating provisioning. If the app is set to Off, this choice is grayed out.
  16. In the confirmation dialog box, click Activate.
Display user provisioning

Once provisioning is enabled, Google begins collecting usage information. Next to User Provisioning, you see the usage information section. There aren't any numbers next to the event names until you enable provisioning.

The following event names provide the usage information for the last 30 days:

  • Users created
  • Users suspended
  • Users hard deleted
  • User failures

For more information, see Monitor user provisioning.
