CPS and x.509 Certificate Logon


we are using the integrated version M33.85-65736 on NW 731 SPS7 and we have set up this AS Java to accept certificate logon. It works without a problem with NWA but unfortunately we need to enter the username and password for the scheduler although we are already logged in into the AS Java.

The same applies to another system where there are no certificates. If you log on to NWA you still need to authenticate again if you want to access the scheduler.

I checked the installation and security guides but I couldn't find anything.

Is this behaviour "by design" or are there configuration settings that need to be changed?

    Hi Andreas,

    Please have a look at the section "Basic Password vs Ticket Authentication" in the release notes for your version (in the documentation).

    This basically boils down to the following issue:

    There are two primary authentication systems on Netweaver, container based authentication, and programmatic authentication. SAP CPS uses container based authentication and I assume your certificate login uses programmatic auth. You can configure NetWeaver to use login tickets which should solve your problem. Please consult SAP support for the configuration instructions.

    The complete instructions can be found here:

    To configure SAP CPS to use logon tickets proceed as follows:

    1. Open Visual Administrator on the global server.
    2. Navigate to ''config > services > security provider''.
    3. Locate the following component:
    4. Switch to edit mode, on the right-hand side and select the ''Ticket'' template.
