SAPUI5 App running on Portal - SSO?


Hey all,

Hoping someone can help me out. Maybe this is simpler than I think or maybe I'm not looking at it from the right perspective.

We have a SAPUI5 application that runs on the gateway server and is accessible for mobile devices. We also want to enable access to the end user's via the SAP Portal using Single Sign on.

We have end-to-end SSO working on the Portal from the desktop login (Kerberos) right through to the backend SAP ECC systems.

I've deployed the SAPUI5 app to the portal server and can access it directly from there via URL 'portalserver:port/Appname/index.html'. I've also created a SAPUI5 iView and can access it that way as well.

The issue I have is that the app seems to be directly accessible via anonymous access, I don't get a login prompt even if I've turned off the browser SSO, the app just launches.

So, I have a few ideas but not sure if any of them will work:

- app was not developed by me but I'm thinking I can maybe wrap it in NWDS as a Portal application? Then this would automatically include the portal authentication functionality?

- write additional code in the SAPUI5 app to do some kind of kerberos authentication

- deploy app to ABAP server and use security there to control access

Any other ideas or validation of my above thoughts would be helpful.

Thanks in advance,
