Besides mapping a X.509 user to a given user ID in an SAP system, you can also map the user by an alias or to a specific user. In step 4.3 I’ll show the configuration for alias mapping, and in 4.4 for a specific user.

Create alias for user

Tx: SU01

Create a test user X509TEST. Add Alias tobias

User: X509Test
Alias: tobias

Use Alias of a user as log on data

The pre-requisites are the same as in step 4.2. The steps in the rule wizard are the same too, just select alias for login as.



Log on to SAP WebGui via X.509.

Logged on user: X509TEST
