HTTPS configuration

Hello Experts,

I have activated HTTPS in my ABAP system recently and I could see that HTTP and HTTPS are enabled in my system using transaction smicm --> Go to --> services.

And one of my Webdynpro Application configured as a service in SICF transaction.

Before we activated HTTPS, one of the webdynpro application uses only HTTP and it was working well.

But after activation of HTTPS, this application first open in SAP http://<saphost:8000>/sap/bc/webdynpro/app

and then automatically it routes to HTTPS in webbrowser. https:////<saphost:443>/sap/bc/webdynpro/app

We get the SSL certificate error after opening https.

My questions are:

1. Can we disable only this particular application not to route to HTTPS whenever there is a http request for this application.

2. What are all the different ptions to solve SSL certificate error? fyi. this application is used by many people across the world.

    Hi Karthick,

    If you want to disable HTTPS for particular web service, then try to switch protocol to HTTP with the following method.

    1. Double click the specific web service under /sap/bc/webdynpro/app

    2. In tab Error Pages, click Configuration in system logon.

    3. Select Do Not Switch in Protocol of Actions During Logon area.

    Now you will have to add an SSL sertificate to your strust. Then you will need to restart the ICM service and the error will go away. Who is your organizations CA cert provider? Maybe you have one internally?

    The behaviour you are describing is standard.

    You if you SSL is not going outside of the company you can also generate your own SSL cert for internal network use.

    Follow note:

    510007 - Setting up SSL on Application Server ABAP

    For troubleshooting:

    2181120 - Tracing and troubleshooting security events in http communication with the AS ABAP

    For logging OSS to SAP:

    Kind Regards,

    Thank for everyone who answered to this Thread.

    I have got the solution for both the questions.

    1. HTTP to HTTPS switch happens by default in any webservices configured in the system.

    This can be disabled as explained by Ning Tong.

    2. Solving the certificate error in client Browser

    a. Create certificate Request and send it to CA. Import the Signed Certificate to SAP.

    b. The tricky part is to create a Trust Center in STRUST and go to Certificate --> Database --> and add your customer namespace for Root Certificate Import.

    c. Then export the root certificate to this customer CA

    after this when I tested in browser it worked. the above step is documented by SAP.

    Thank you again. Have a nice and bugfree weekend.
