F5 SAP Portal Integrated ITS and SSO
We are implementing F5 into our SAP environment which includes Portal 7.0 and ESS/MSS into ECC 6.0. We have rather a complex network. When people access ESS via the internet they come into our ESS F5 for arguments sake I will call it https://ess.ourplace.com, SSL termination takes place here and the internal traffic is http.
This works fine for all except the integrated ITS transactions as they build a URL out in internet land to try and access the ECC backend. We don't allow direct access to ECC from the internet so we generate a URL back to https://ess.ourplace.com/bc/etc then at the ESS F5 we rewrite the header and pass the traffic through to our internal ECC F5 server which in turn passes it through to ECC. This portects our network and works fine except for the fact it prompts for a userid and password rather than using SSO for these transactions.
I'm picking I need to put the portal server certificate onto the ESS F5 so that in can recognise the request and pass it through via SSO. SSO is working for all but the integrated ITS transactions.
Please be aware I'm not F5 literate and don't have access to the F5 config, but I need tio sort t his issue quickly if possible.
