Configuring access to SAP Signavio Process Collaboration Hub

SAP Signavio Process Collaboration Hub users have the ability to read and comment on diagrams published to SAP Signavio Process Collaboration Hub.

SAP Signavio Process Collaboration Hub users are not exclusively managed in the Explorer under Setup. To grant Hub users access to diagrams, SAP Signavio Process Collaboration Hub has to be configured correspondingly. In addition, diagrams have to be published explicitly.

Access right management options for SAP Signavio Process Collaboration Hub users

Depending on your edition and integration variant of SAP Signavio Process Collaboration Hub, the access configuration may vary:

  • Since version 11.11.0, you can manage SAP Signavio Process Collaboration Hub users in the same way you manage users of SAP Signavio Process Manager (username/password-based).

    • If you acquired SAP Signavio Process Collaboration Hub before the release of version 11.11.0 (January 2018), you can request the activation of username/password-based SAP Signavio Process Collaboration Hub licenses by contacting support@signavio.com. Then, you can revoke the certificate and send out email invites to the persons who should register for SAP Signavio Process Collaboration Hub. In case you have configured authentication via LDAP or SAML, a manual activation and migration is not necessary.
    • The username/password-based authentication mechanism also supports fine-grained access rights management for SAP Signavio Process Collaboration Hub users.
  • You are using the on-premises edition without Active Directory integration: In this case, you only have to make sure that Hub users can access the URL <serverurl>/intra/portal (if necessary contact your administrator). Once a diagram has been published, all Hub users can access and comment on it.

  • You are using the Software-as-a-Service version and SAP Signavio Process Collaboration Hub with SAML 2.0-based authentication: Hub users can authenticate via a third-party account using a SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language) SSO service. Read more in section Single sign-on using SAML.

Once SAP Signavio Process Collaboration Hub is configured correctly, published diagrams are available to all Hub users with access rights.
