Logins, Roles, and Groups

SAP Control Center includes predefined login accounts and roles.

A login account identifies a user who can connect to SAP Control Center. An account has roles that control the tasks the user is allowed to perform. Users can be authenticated through native SCC accounts, but a safer approach is to delegate authentication to the operating system or to an LDAP directory service.

SCC comes with a predefined login account. SAP recommends using the predefined account only for installing, setting up, and testing SAP Control Center. This account is not intended for use in a production environment.
