How to enforce ANONYM SSL Keystore when consuming external Web Service


Dear all,

I have to consume an external Web Service with HTTPS and Basic Authentication from an ABAP program. Consumer Proxy and Logical Port are ready. Everything works fine - but everytime when testing or using the Consumer Proxy, a dialog for username and passwort popus up. When I enter the same access data there that is already saved in the Logical Port in SOAMANAGER, then the call is successful.

Consequently, background processing fails with "Authentication required".

I found out that the DFAULT Keystore is used in the calls. However, I need to use the ANONYM Keystore, as we do not use client certificates.

How can I configure usage of the ANONYM key store / client identity for this Consumer Proxy and Logical Port?

Thank you for every hint,
