The SuccessFactors Work Zone integration with LMS has two parts->

  1. Work Zone side- Accessing Learning Records from Work Zone
  2. LMS side- Accessing Work Zone Workspaces from LMS

A. Work Zone side- Integrating Learning Records in Work Zone

The following guide page covers all the steps for this integration-> Integrating SAP SuccessFactors Learning | SAP Help Portal 

B. Learning side- Accessing Work Zone Workspaces within Learning

Pre-requisite: The steps from this guide must be completed-> Integrating SAP SuccessFactors Learning | SAP Help Portal

Following that:

  1. Support Ticket needs to be raised to LOD-SF-LMS to enable the feature toggle LMS_Workzone_JamClientCredentialsProfile_1615906056. This is done through LMS Operations engagement. (@Support - please check internal memo section)
  2. Base64 encoded public & private key pair should be generated using tools like openssl.

    For example, with the following command the public certificate will be output to certificate.pem and the private key will be output to key.pem
    • $ openssl req -newkey rsa:2048 -nodes -keyout key.pem -x509 -days 3650 -out certificate.pem -sha1
    The site can be referenced for the required fields to input (please do not directly use production keys generated on the site!). For more details on installing and using openssl commands, please check articles available on the internet. This is not a Work Zone or LMS specific topic.

  3. SAML Trusted IdP should be created in Work Zone using the public certificate generated in the previous step. Guide on creating SAML Trusted IdP-> SAML Trusted IDPs | SAP Help Portal

    - Learning tenant URL for the IDP ID field,
    - the public certificate from Step 2 above for the X509 Certificate field.

  4. Configure the following tenant level properties in LMS Admin: Configuration > System Configuration > BIZX

    idpId: the IDP ID used when registering the SAML Trusted IDP in Work Zone in the previous Step.
    workzonePrivateKey: the private key generated from openssl in in the Step 2. The key should be in a single line, with all newlines removed.
