Neptune DXP - SAP Edition authentication

The Neptune DXP - SAP Edition authentication provides a one to one connection between the Open Edition system and the Neptune DXP - SAP Edition, and thus the SAP system when it is running. This provides the ability for end users to log into the Open Edition using their SAP credentials. When successful, a paired user is created within the Open Edition.

SAML is only for browser login, not for Mobile Client or PWA.
