Connection between SuccessFactors and DWC using OAUTH2

330 Views Last edit Apr 21 at 03:39 PM 3 rev

Hi Expert,

We are trying to establish the connection between SuccessFactors(SF) and Data Warehouse Cloud (DWC or Datasphere) using OAuth2. We have registered the OAuth2 in SF and downloaded the X.509 certificate (.PEM format - only this option is available). But before making the Local connection in DWC, we need to upload the X.509 certificate under System --> Configuration --> SSL/TLS Certificates, but here only allow to upload the certificate in .crt or cer format. So we tried to convert the certificate format .pem to crt but getting an error "Unable to load the certificate".

As per the above scenario, we have following queries.

1. What is the correct method to connect SF and DWC ?

2. If using OAuth2 what would be the details and where we can get it of below ?

OAuth Grant Type: SAML Bearer
OAuth Token Endpoint
OAuth Scope
OAuth API Endpoint
OAuth User ID
OAuth Company ID

Credentials (OAuth 2.0)
Client ID
Client Secret

3. How to convert the .pem to .crt certificate ?

4. Is there any other way to establish the connection between SF and DWC ?

Please help me on the above points.
