DB: The SAP SSO authentication process will fail

We are currently encountering issues while creating a universe connection on a SAP data source in BOE Designer.

When one tries to login as an Administrator and creates a data access driver connection using Authentication mode as "Use specified username and password" it works fine.(It shows the required infocubes and queries etc.)

But when one tries to login as an Administrator and create a connection as "Use single sign on when refreshing reports at view time", it throws an error stating that

"DB: The SAP SSO authentication process will fail because the current user doesn't have an alias that matches system <SystemnameClientNumber>

I need SSO Authentication to be working here but have been unable to do that.Any assistance shall be appreciated.

Thanks

    Hi,

    did you configure the SAP authentication and are you logging on with your SAP credentials to the Universe Designer ?
