SAP SuccessFactors HCM Suite

Reproducing the Issue

1. Go to Admin Center

2. Click on Upgrade Center

3. Found New Optional Upgrades "Create SuccessFactors Identity Authentication Service Integration" and "Enable SuccessFactors to SAP Cloud Platform Identity Authentication Service Integration"

Cause

Starting in the Q2 2019 release, all new SAP SuccessFactors systems are automatically connected to Identity Authentication. You do not need to set up the integration yourself.

If your SAP SuccessFactors system was created before the Q2 2019 release date, you can set up the integration in Upgrade Center. If you are not an SAP S-User, contact your system administrator for help.

Resolution

If your SAP SuccessFactors system was created before the Q2 2019, you need to perform below Upgrades in order to connect you SuccessFactors systems to Identity Authentication

A. Create SuccessFactors Identity Authentication Service Integration

Prerequisites

  • You are an SAP S-User.
  • You want to be set up as the administrator of a new existing Identity Authentication tenant, or you are already an administrator of your existing tenant.
  • You have access to Upgrade Center.

Procedure

1.Gather the following information:

   •Your SAP S-User username and password

   •URL of your existing Identity Authentication tenant, if you have one.

2.Go to Admin Center  Upgrade Center  Optional Upgrades.

3.Find the upgrade "Create SuccessFactors Identity Authentication Service Integration" and click Learn More & Upgrade Now to read more about it.

4.Click Upgrade Now .

5.Enter your S-User username and password in the dialog and click Validate.

We match the information you entered against our records to make sure it is correct.

6.If necessary, enter the full URL of your Identity Authentication tenant, starting with https://.

A URL is only required if we find an existing tenant for your company. Otherwise, it isn't necessary.

7.Click Create to initiate the integration process.

A confirmation message tells you the email address that tenant details are sent do when the process is complete.

8.Click Cancel to close the dialog without marking the upgrade as complete.

Caution:

Do not click Submit until you receive email confirmation that the integration process was completed successfully. Due to a known issue, clicking Submitcauses the upgrade to disappear from the Upgrade Center immediately, before we are done setting up the integration. If there's a problem, you may need to try again, so it's a good idea to Cancel instead so that the upgrade is still visible. It goes away later, automatically, when we are done.

B. Enable SuccessFactors to SAP Cloud Platform Identity Authentication Service Integration

Prerequisites

  • Your SAP SuccessFactors system is integrated with the SAP Cloud Platform Identity Authentication service.
  • You have successfully configured Identity Authentication to meet your requirements and are ready to begin using it to authenticate users in your system.
