SAML2 SSO working from BPC Web Client - but failing when initiating from the Excel client

0 Kudos


I've been directed here by Product Support - ref: "Incident 208720/2018 'SAML2 authentication from EPM Add-In not working' which I raised.

We have configured SAML2 SSO between Web Dispatcher and Microsoft Azure AD. The authentication flow works as expected when launching the BPC Web client.

However, when we open up a blank excel sheet and attempt to create a connection through the EPM Add-In the authentication process fails. All details are in the support ticket or I can provide further details if someone PMs me.

All help gratefully received since Product Support are unwilling to progress the ticket without input from SAP Consultants on this topic.

Hi Matt,

I briefly pulled up your incident and see that you are on EPM SP30. There was a fix for SAML2 authentication in SP32

Have you tested this in sp32? I If not please do so and let us know how that works.
