Am currently working on connecting and provisioning a SAP R/3 system, and I've got a question.
In Identity Portal, we fill out the name (First name, Middle name, Last name). All fields free text. In SAP R/3, first and last name are free text, and I don't have an issue with this. But for this customer, the middle name in SAP R/3 is no free text, but I have to input an object of type SAP R/3 Name Prefix.
I have the following questions:
1. How do I match the free text input in Identity Portal to the object SAP is expecting?
2. How do I cope with free text options that I'm not able to map against the options SAP gives me?
Hope you can help me.
I guess you want to know how you can create validation on a field in the portal.
Form Handlers - CA Identity Portal - 14.2 - CA Technologies Documentation
This section explains how to do this. If the SAP R/3 name prefix is a fixed list, you can add this in the handler definition.
Thanks for the reply, but this is not what I'm looking for. I guess I could create a dropdown menu in portal to match the values in SAP, but I still need to communicate these values to SAP. And that's the problem, I don't have a way to do this, as far as I know.
