SAPUI5 Login without Launchpad

Hi experts,

I deployed my first SAPUI5 application for testing. Now I want to understand how the login could be realized.

Since the customer doesn't want to use the Fiori Launchpad, I have extended the app for standalone use. The app is deployed to SAP Cloud Platform and connects to an on premise system.

If I launch the app via URL the Login Page for the Cloud Platform is loaded. Where I can login with my developer account (S-User). But what I expected is a Login page, where the SAP User ID could be used.

I've found a way to disable the authentication, but I don't want to implement a custom (Z) login page and the stuff behind. I think there must be a standard way.

I have found a lot of blogs like the following, that describe how to configure your own login page, via SICF. But the corresponding SICF node doesn't exist in the system. Is it because it is deployed to the SAP Cloud Platform and not to the ABAP System?

Configure own Login Page

Can you explain me what is the SAP standard way in this use case an how to implement/configure it?

Thank you in advance for your help.

    Hi,

    If you want to authenticate to your app, you can use an Identity Provider (Active Directory, SCP Identity Authentication services (SCP IAS), SAP ID Service)

    The default Identity Provider (IdP) is the SAP ID Service, which you don't want to use.

    The other option, SCP IAS, is not difficult to configure, but you need a SCP IAS tenant (which is not accesible from a trial SCP account).

    Another option would be to configure an ADFS.

    You can read this blog from Jakob Moellers: https://blogs.sap.com/2016/12/19/part-3-identity-providers-for-hcp-in-practice/

    Best regards,

    • Hello Florian,

      I've not used that service (Identity Authentication Add-on), but it looks that SCP IAS is a prerequisite.

      I think that the SCP IAS is not listed as a service in SCP Cockpit since it's a different tenant.

      I'd recommend to talk to your company's SAP contact in order to get a SCP IAS tenant.

      Regards,
