SAP BuildMap Rule

Overview

This rule gathers additional attributes from SAP systems to build accounts. This rule is implemented using SAP's Java Connector (JCo) framework provided by a supplied SAP connection.

Execution

  • Connector Execution - This rule executes within the virtual appliance. It may offer special abilities to perform connector-related functions, and it may offer managed connections to sources.
  • Logging - Logging statements are viewable within the ccg.log on the virtual appliance, and they are viewable by SailPoint personnel.

Rule Execution
