"BI Launchpad" monitoring & SSO

Hi, I'm trying to setup and run the "BI launch pad" probe. But I'm facing the issue as described in SAP-Notes https://launchpad.support.sap.com/#/notes/1944309 and https://launchpad.support.sap.com/#/notes/2007703

I have set the default authentication-method to "secEnterprise" , in ....tomcat\webapps\BOE\WEB-INF\config\custom\BIlaunchpad.properties (and restarted Tomcat. cleared Tomcat-cache). This because my probe is configured to run with user=Adminitrator , and so "Enterprise" authentication

It is still not working.

Our environment (BI4.2 SP7.5, WindowsServer-2016, https/SSL on the webservers) is setup to use Single-Sign-On through Kerberos/Vintela.

Do I understand correctly from https://launchpad.support.sap.com/#/notes/1944309 that it cannot work ? As I read :

  • If BI LaunchPad is configured for Windows AD silent SSO (no need to type in the username/password) then the BI Launchpad probe cannot be used as it is not already authenticated by the domain.
  • The BI Launchpad probes does not work with SSO (WinAD or SAML) enabled.

In fact I can hardly believe it cannot work : I think most (bigger) companies have setup their environment for their end-user to use Single-Sign-On. But then there is no way to make the "BI launch pad" probe to work ?

Has somebody found a kind of workaround ? And/or any other ideas ?

Many thanks.
