content server 404 auth error

hopefully this is where this should be posted.

we have a pc-ui application that needs to retrieve a signature that was captured via crm mobile sales and sychcronized to crm online. currently we can not get the signature to synchronize.

we are trying to synch a captured signature and are getting error messages in the sBdoc's indicating http 404 authorization failure, before this error we had "no user" set up in sicf sap/bc/contentmanagement

the demo system shows a dialog user of crmixos with no special authorizations. what is the best way to set up a user and what authorizations are needed?

also our demo system uses (I think) a http content repository while we are using a storage category of r/3 database.

thanks in advance for any guidance.

    Just a note: 404 is not the authorization error

    404 is just 'not found' which everyone knows.

    Check the URL which you are using. It seems to be incorrect.

    • With the updated 401, is just means that you have to "stand and identify" yourself to the server. Somehow you will have to send you authentication information.

      If you should ask the best way, then of course HTTPS.

      Alternatives are using simple basic authentication, putting name+password in ICF (only if you really understand the consequence of this and have read the documentation on not using a dialog user), placing it in the URL (not recommended as it lands in the browser history), using SSO2.

    Actually I think there is an OSS note on setting up the contentmanagement node in SICF(either that or help document). It tells you what authorizations SAP recommends for the setup of this node. I'm at home right now and don't have access to OSS. I will try to find the note in the morning and post it here.
