Portal, SSL, mapping certificate to user id



We're trying to configure our EP 7.0 SP15 to use SSL/client certificates. SAP Web Disp is not used.

Valid client certificate has been issued and installed on PC and CA has been created on server. Certificate is required for SSL usage.

When accessing the portal using on the log in screen for the portal a message is shown : "Your certificate will be mapped to your user id". There are also prompts for user id and password.

The next time I try to log on this message is shown again and I am prompted for user id and password again. I had hoped that the user id and certificate was mapped and the prompt for user id/pw was skipped and I was logged on directly. Not so...

I have also tried to manually assign the certificate to my user id - no luck...

The description for using client certificates for user authentication on has (to my knowledge) been followed.

Hints and help will be greatly appreciated.
