SSL in web dispatcher

Hi,

I am aware of web dispatcher capabilities with respect to routing the HTTPS messages/ URL filtering. We have 2 DI instances of a SAP PI 7.1 . We are thinking about setting up the SSL certificate in the web dispatcher, so the system can switch in failover cases and this can be achieved with one certificate. Is this is a valid suggestion ? Is setting the SSL certificate in the web dispatcher done before? Any help is appreciated..

    Hi,

    Theoretically it should work ( http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw70ehp1/helpdata/en/39/09a63d7af20450e10000000a114084/frameset.htm). We haven't tried this with a Web dispatcher. But we are using the same with a 3rd party loadbalancer positioned before our instances. And the loadbalancer inturn is ssl enabled.

    Regards

    Hi,

    This can be done. we have a similar case where we are using web dispatcher in between for webservice communication.

    In our scenario PI URL is mapped with another URL from dispatcher and given to third party. The third party is sending requests to public url, and once request reaches dipatcher, it iwill redirected to internal URL of PI.

    The certifcate is installed in webdispatcher , the same certificate we have given to third party in the case of request scenario from third party.

    In case of request scaenario from PI , third party certificate is imported to dipactcher, PI will send request to dispatcher , which will intrun redirected to outside URL from dispatcher.
