SAML SSO between SAC and Azure AD as IDP using Apache Reverse proxy

436 Views Last edit Jul 12, 2018 at 09:02 PM 2 rev


Has anyone successfully configured SAML SSO to SAP Analytics cloud with Azure IDP and Apache server as a reverse proxy? If so, can you paste here sample httpd.conf file with reverse proxy settings for Azure IDP?

(OR) someone connecting to SAP system using SAML SSO with Azure IDP and Apache as a reverse proxy instead of Web dispatcher?

My issue is that without Apache reverse proxy, SSO login works for both SAC and live connections to backend systems (Browser --> SAC --> Redirect to Azure AD --> Succesful authentication --> redirect to SAC login --> successful SSO live connection to backend HANA using web dispatcher).

However if I switch to Apache reverse proxy, this does not work.

(Browser --> SAC --> Apache --> Redirect to Azure AD --> successful authentication --> SAC login failed)

There is configuration available for SAP IDP or ADFS but not for Azure AD. I also have an SAP message# 329438 opened for the same issue.
