Whitelist distribution to endusers


We are implementing PLM Web UI 7.03 at our client and we will be using DMS over WebUI.

To access a DIR attachment over the WebUI one needs to install the whitelist first or else he will get an error ' Certificate does not exist'

At Go-live, we want to find out if there is way to distribute whitelist certificate to all the users instead of asking them to install the certificate using the tcode 'WDR_ACF_WLIST'. Is there a way if the user tries to access the attachment for the first time, instead of giving him the error that certificate does not exist, can we make him download the certificate and then access the attachment? Or if there is any better way to ensure that the certificate is installed on the user machine before he access the DIR.

    Hello Zoheb ,

    The idea which you have presented is excellent . You shall ask sap to work on this idea .

    At the moment to improve the white list process set up sap latest release note is 1706291 .

    Unfortunately at the SAP does not provides any simpler approach . If you have to simply the process , I think you shall a development .

    --> identify the place from where the error is coming .

    ---> replace the error message with the log which shows a pop to proceed .

    ---> if user says OK , the application logic shall run the report WDR_ACF_GEN_CERT to generate the cerficate .

    ---> once the report is executed , by coding itself , you can make the generated certifcate installed on the front end system of the user by again giving a pop which has the option where the cerficate shall be installed / you can also ignore the pop up and directly save the cerficate in the required file location .

    I think this shall be approch which your ABAP consultant shall take .

    Thanks ,

    Abhishek Gupta .

    Hi Zoheb Hasan,

    there is also a possibility to switch off the whitelist handling. See SAP Note: 1731458

    Transaction: WDR_ACF_WLIST

    Best regards
