ITK Installation on LINUX server: Hi I am working on installation of ITK on Linux Server and referring the installation pdf available in, but the issue is I am not able to find the exact path to configure shared secret and there is no document available for installation of Ariba ITK on LINUX server.

Hi Jairaj,

What i meant is usually there will be some front end application which is built on some OS.

For EX: SAP PI system is built on UNIX/Windows OS and ITK needs to be installed in SAP PI system . So the method of installation of ITK depends on what is the front end application.

But looking at your query and description it looks like you are using standalone UNIX system.

So before you configure any Task i.e for ex: master data upload/download, transaction data upload/download the shared secret password has to be encrypted using script files and : is used to encrypt the actual password(Shared secret password) which is configured in ariba portal using some customer defined key. is the script which is used the encrypt the customer defined key which is used for encryption the shared secret password

Now once you encrypt these 2 they are placed in in your desktop in some path. Now those 2 path has to be configured in the file via which you want to transfer vile from desktop to ariba or vice versa.

Below is the screenshot of where you need to configure these 2 paths:
