Portal, SSL, mapping certificate to user id

Hello,

We're trying to configure our EP 7.0 SP15 to use SSL/client certificates. SAP Web Disp is not used.

Valid client certificate has been issued and installed on PC and CA has been created on server. Certificate is required for SSL usage.

When accessing the portal using https://servername.xxx.com:500001/irj/portal on the log in screen for the portal a message is shown : "Your certificate will be mapped to your user id". There are also prompts for user id and password.

The next time I try to log on this message is shown again and I am prompted for user id and password again. I had hoped that the user id and certificate was mapped and the prompt for user id/pw was skipped and I was logged on directly. Not so...

I have also tried to manually assign the certificate to my user id - no luck...

The description for using client certificates for user authentication on help.sap.com has (to my knowledge) been followed.

Hints and help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

/Christian

Hi!

This is a security "feature" of the Portal. You have to enter userid and password only once and then never again.

Try it. If this is not okay for you come back to this thread. I think there was a way to avoid this initial login screen, but I don't remember it and I'd have to search to find it ... and I'm soo lazy.

Hello Volker,

Thank you for your reply. I will have a look at the documentation (once again). I'm a little confused about the configuration of the login modules.
