• SAP Web Portal

  • The SAP portal provides access to SAP applications such as Employee Self Services (ESS/MSS), decentralized procurement (Supplier Relationship Management, SRM), and reporting (Business Warehouse, SAP BW). The applications can be accessed platform-independently via a Web browser.


The SAP Web Portal(https://sap-portal.scc.kit.edu/) is the uniform entry point to SAP applications for KIT employees. This includes the following applications:

  • Employee Self Service (ESS) - employee administration, e.g., retrieval of remuneration statements, time recording, or vacation request.
  • Manager Self Service (MSS) - manager administration, e.g. approval of vacation requests
  • Business Warehouse (BW) - reporting
  • Supplier Relationship Management (SRM) - centralized and decentralized procurement, hospitality order, and for GFB only, service requests, dispatch orders, driving service orders and waste delivery orders
  • Guest and Partner Management (GuP) - management of guest and partner
  • Person days (PT) - recording of person days


Organizational requirements

This service is available to KIT employees (except auxiliary staff) via their KIT account and second factor (token). The functionalities of the ESS (at least retrieval of remuneration statements and modification of own data) are automatically available to all employees without application.

To obtain authorization to enter person days, it is sufficient to send an e-mail to the service desk (servicedesk@scc.kit.edu).

Access to other applications in the portal (MSS, BW, SRM, GuP, approval of person days), on the other hand, must be requested. The corresponding request must be signed by the OU management and sent to sap-benutzerverwaltung@scc.kit.edu.

Technical requirements

  • PC/notebook (Windows, Linux)
  • Internet access
  • Browser (IE, Firefox)
  • Outside KIT: VPN connection (e.g. KIT standard VPN with kit.ovpn)
  • second factor for authentication (token)

This service has increased IT security requirements. Therefore, to use this service, you need a token to perform two-factor authentication (2FA).

To use Reporting (BW) in the SAP Web Portal, the following additional requirements are necessary:

  • Installed MS Office version (32 or 64 bit).
  • Installed Analysis for Office (AO) add-on
  • VPN special access (kit-vpn2vlan.ovpn): inside KIT <KIT-Account>@sap; outside KIT <KIT-Account>@sap-von-aussen
