Enterprise portal server front ended with apache reverse proxy server which hosts Siteminder web agent 6.0. Enterprise portal server and backend SAP application servers all configured to use sap logon tickets. Enterprise portal server "ticket" login module stack configured to accept "HeaderVariableLoginModule" as optional criteria. We verified that Siteminder web agent is indeed sending "HTTP_LDAP_UID" (LDAP userid header variable). However, Enterprise portal is not accepting header variable as authentication and still challenged for basic UID password authentication even through reverse proxy. I will gladly provide screenshots as needed. Has anyone made this setup work, we need your assistance. Thanks in advance.
Hi Sasha ,
we have got this working .
Follow the instructions in
http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw04/helpdata/en/d0/a3d940c2653126e10000000a1550b0/frameset.htm EXACTLY ...particularly make sure you add them to the ticket template in the J2EE engine (not the SAPJ2EE template) .
Make absolutely sure the header variable is what you think it is ( we used a perl script running in Apache to verify this as Apache can append HTTP_... to the header or not depending on the level and OS )..Do all that and it will work !
