SSO from EP5/SP5 to SAP service Marketplace and SDN


I am trying to setup single sign-on from our Enterprise Portal to the SAP Marketplace ( and SDN ( I managed to define a Data Source each which allows me to store the user credentials. Unfortunately when calling the iView (referencing these data sources) an automatic logon does not occur.

Anybody out there who can tell me what I am doing wrong.

Thanks, Wolfgang

    Hi Wolfgang

    I don't think you're doing wrong anything. As far as I understand the mechanism of SSO with Data Sources the problem is most likely related to cookies. If the site is "secured" additionally with cookies it's difficult to POST (or GET) the logon information to the the related page. If the site calls for a cookie at this moment it tries to send you "back" to the default page.

    I wonder why this problem isn't discussed more! The first site I tried to setup within the portal was the marketplace too 😉
