SSL / User Authentication issue when consuming Web Service - Consumer Proxy


I'm trying to consume an SSL webservice from non-sap system and I am struggling with SSL certificates and user/authentication.

I have the consumer proxy correctly configured in SOAMANAGER (I think), but when I call the webservice 2 problems occur:

If I have the configuration in SOAMANAGER as in the picture:

I am able to call the webservice and establish connection, but then always asks for the user ID and Password in the T-CODE that calls the webservice to login to the external system:

But I do not want the popup to appear. The user and password should be inserted automatically.

However, if I change the configurations in SOAMANAGER to:

We get an error on the SSL handshake:

Is there anyway in SOAMANAGER to have both X.509 SSL and User/Authentication?

Or is the SSL option available anywhere else? Am I missing some configuration?

Our basis team have configured all SSLs on STRUST and confirm all required SSLs are properly installed.

Thank you for your help.

    I have exactly the same problem, I am unable to avoid the user/password popup when consuming the service, but when it is created via an RFC connection from SM59 it works fine.

    Did you manage to solve the problem?

    • Hi Mohammad,

      The solution was to install the certificates into the SSL Anonymous folder on Trust Manager. Then select Username/password in SOAMANAGER. This way, we provide an username, a password and the system finds the necessary certificate inside the Anonymous folder. We couldn't find another way to manage this. I hope this is helpful for you as well.
