This approach is considered legacy, deprecated and is not recommended any longer by SAP. I just include this here as a reference for those that cannot update.

Tx: SM30
External ID Type DN

Add a new entry. Switch to edit mode.

Click on new entries

A new entry for external Id is added by inserting the CN information the certificate has in its Subject line.

The subject line of a certificate can be read using OpenSSL. The Subject in the given example is:

Subject: C=DE, ST=BW, L=Karlsruhe, O=blog, CN=tobias
External ID: CN=tobias
Activated: check
