MYSAPSSO2 cookie for SAP logon tickets

Hi All,

I am trying to configure SSO using SAP logon tickets for EP 7.0. I want to test whether login ticket is generated when user logs in to portal . For that i have configured Login module stack such as j2ee engine will create and accept login tickets

I have set following properties for sap-j2ee-engine component

Login Modules Flag

EvaluateTicketLoginModule SUFFICIENT

BasicPasswordLoginModule REQUISITE

CreateTicketLoginModule OPTIONAL

But when i access the portal i am unable to find MYSAPSSO2 cookie generated on my machine under cookies folder.

Where can i see MYSAPSSO2 cookie or am i missing somthing to set up SSo?

Thanks in advance,

    Hi Arati,

    you can alo show the cookie with standard Firefox. Tools -> Options -> Privacy -> Show Cookies. If your Portals hostname is, in the cookies window of Firefox you will find a folder named host.domaincom and a folder named You will find the MYSAPSSO2 cookie under

    the SAP Logon Ticket is a session cookie. It will never get written to the filesystem. To check if the logon ticket is created, you'll need a tool that can show you the content of the browser cookies.

    "The logon ticket is stored as a non-persistent cookie in the useru2019s Web browser with the name MYSAPSSO2. It is deleted when the user logs off or closes his or her Web browser."

    You will need to use Http-Watch to verify the cookie is getting generated, because as Tobias pointed out MYSAPSSO2 cookie is browser based (transient) and its not a persistent cookie.

    Alternatively to see your cookie in browser try following steps:-

    1. Change the ume.logon.httponlycookie parameter to false as mentioned [here |]

    2. Now logon to Portal and preview the required SSO application. Now in address bar of your browser type


    and it should you all the cookies set the portal such as saplb, jsessionid etc.

    • Arati,

      Since you are able to bring the second Portal without logon, it means that your SSO is working.

      And regarding cookie not displayed in browser did you change the setting I mentioned, if not please do that.

      Alternative solutions are already shared by Tobias and me.

      And what's real reason why do you want to verify the cookie in browser !!
