WebSEAL SSO to Portal, SAP Logon ticket not working

Hi Guys

I am trying to set up SSO from the desktop to the portal through IBM WebSEAL using the document from this link

I've followed all the steps for setting up SSO to EP except I haven't added the client certificate yet as I want to wait with that until I have it working without the certificate.

After setting it up the SSO to the portal works fine, so I enter the portal without having to enter any username or password, but the SSO to my back-end system R/3 and BW doesn't work anymore.

The SSO to R/3 and BW works fine, when I access the portal directly by entering username and password.

I've made a litle snoop servlet that shows me all the cookies in the request, and the difference between the cookies when I access directly and when I access through WebSEAL is that I have a cookie called DSMKeepAliveStamp and a cookie called SAPPORTALSDB0 in the request where I access the portal directly which I don't have when accessing through WebSEAL.

Does anybody have any ideas?

    Hello Jacob,

    what kind of iViews are you using? Those which are Java iViews with a backend integration through RFC or those which are variants of the URL iView (e.g. the SAP application integrator)? In the latter case please note that if the iView renders a different URL (e.g. the one of the BW system) this URL also has to be configured on WebSeal.

    I recommend to use a tool like HTTP Watch of SimTech Ltd. or the SAP HTTP-Plugin (see SAP Note 834568) to perform a client-side trace of the URLs called.

      Hi Michael

      Thanks a lot for your answer.

      I have no problems with any of my java based iViews.

      I only have problems with the URL-based iViews as you say, so I probably have to add those URLs to WebSEAL.

      I'm not the one who does that, so could you describe how these URLs should be configured in WebSEAL?
