Webservice Log on Procedure & client certificates


Our webservice is being accessed from java,and needs a client certificate to be sent to SAP to log on. So that the user need not have to send a Password, user gets authenticated in SAP. So how do i set up my webservice logon? there are 4 options on this

1) required with client certificate(SSL)

2) Alternate logon procedure

3) required with Logon data

4) standard

I need some documentation on these to figure out what the setting need to be? I have used the first option but I get an error

The termination occurred in system DV2 with error code 403 and for the reason Forbidden.

This service requires a client certificate for the logon procedure.

The selected virtual host was 0 .

    Hi Nandi,

    Please check following documentation


    - Users possess valid X.509 client certificates

    - The useru2019s client certificates are imported into their client systemu2019s Web browsers.

    - The J2EE Engine is configured to support HTTPS connections and SSL. For more information, see Configuring the Use of SSL on the J2EE Engine.

    Please check if your server where the webservice is deployed is configured for SSL.
