CTS+ from Solman to Java: transport fails 403 forbidden

Hi all

We've set up CTS+ as per all the documentation, configured the CTSDEPLOY port, the CTSDEPPLOY RFC and connection settings and users in STMS, and the destination in PO back to SolMan.

A 'Transport Tool' check completes successfully on both DEV and QA PO systems from Solman; i.e. connects to SDM URL/XI URL ok etc.

However when we try and import a transport into QA PO we get a return code 12 and this error:

Start deployment of SLD Deploy Webservice environment DeployProxy (vendor: '', name: 'tc/cts/appl', scV: '', scN: 'LM-CTS', location: 'SAP AG', counter: '7.5008.2017052413 0221.0000', R: '7.50', SP: '8', PL: '0', change number: '7', appl-level:0) called.

Connection Error:Forbidden TransportEntity (ID:00163E2CCA941ED7AA82B213E01EEB65) status set to 'ERROR'. HTTP Response code:'403' meaning 'Forbidden'

The CTSSRVUSER user in PO (DEV and QA) has the roles:




And we also gave it:


The Log Viewer in both PO systems shows successful login and authentication for CTSSRVUSER and NWDI_CTSADM.

The CTSSRVUSER user in SolMan (used in the destination from PO) has SAP_ALL.

The file referenced exists and can be read by both Solman and the PO systems.

So what gives? Where's the problem?

Thanks in advance!

    Finally got to the bottom of this by checking the security audit logs under /usrsap/SID/J00/j2ee/cluster/server3/log/system

    Found error:[HTTP Worker [@1632449821],5,Dedicated_Application_Thread]#Plain## Permission check failed| ACCESS.ERROR| USER.PRIVATE_DATASOURCE.un:NWDI_CTSADM| | Application=[*sld], Message=[The user does not have rights to access relative URL '/Admin' with HTTP method 'GET']#

    NWDI_CTSADM had all the roles it was supposed to have....

    So added it to the Administrators group.

    And that fixed it!

    Where's that in the documentation?!
