Consume HTTPS Web-Service in ABAP without any authentication

Hi All,

I know there are lot of threads/blogs on this topic and I have read most of them, but still issue is not resolved. I have to consume a HTTPS web-service into SAP, this web-service does not have any authentication and its just a F5, but when I call it from SE80->Enterprise Service, I get message "ICF Error when receiving the response: ICM_HTTP_SSL_ERROR"

I checked and this error is when certificated are not added using STRUST, but when I checked with Service provider, they are saying there is no authentication involved.

Not sure how to fix this issue, I will really appreciate your suggestions.

    HTTPS has nothing to do with authentication but with encryption.
    To import SSL certificates please follow this example guide:

    I had a similar issue, mine was due to SAP being pedantic about security (rightly so). If there is no authentication at the server end, SAP requires confirmation that this is OK.

    Either the service provider didn't understand what you are asking or they don't understand https. Certificates establish trust, authentication identifies people. Very very very different concepts.

    If they are using HTTPS they have to have a certificate. If they choose not to use authentication, SAP still wants the certificate in it's database. You can get the certificate details from an SMICM trace. Then upload to STRUST and all should be well.

    @Mike/Uwe - Thank You for taking time to reply to this question.

    Certificates were required and those certificates were imported into SAP and after that this issue was resolved. I took BASIS Team's help to import those certificated into SAP, and also service provider's help to get certificates.
