Call functions in another MTA from Node js using destination services


Hi Experts,

We are trying to call a node js service in different MTA Project (MTA-2) from our MTA project (MTA-1) to consume functionality in other projects. We are trying to use the destination service to connect to the other MTA Project. Please see a example diagram below:

There are 3 different projects we have:

1. UI5 Project

2. Node JS Project (Basic MTA) - Does not have an approuter

3. CAP Project - Does not have a approuter

The flow of the process is as below:

1. UI5 App Module calls MTA 2 (Node JS Project) using App Router.

2. MTA 2 provides data back to the UI. For some scenarios, MTA-2 needs to interact with MTA-1 to get data and pass back to the UI. Both MTA 1 and MTA 2 only have server modules defined in the mta.yaml and no app-router defined.

The problem we are having is when trying to connect to MTA1 from MTA 2 using a destination. We have configured a destination to the server URL for MTA 1 and using oAuth2JWTBearer Type destination to connect to the project.

When trying to get the destination configuration using the destination rest API, the auth Token is throwing the below error:

"Unable to map issuer to a single regisered provider". We have used the same destination to connect from the UI5 App to MTA1 and it works, but I understand that might be because the service call is going through the approuter.

In this scenario, we want to call server module from another server module passing the user context.

Any help is appreciated.
