When you were testing the ES4 service, you noticed that you needed to login before you had access to the service. Because the ES4 service is a protected service, credentials need to be provided before it gives you a valid response.
Note: Both SAP Cloud Platform as well as the ES4 system is using SAP Cloud Identity to verify users. Theoretically this would make it very easy to implement single-sign-on. However, because there is no trust setup between your SAP Cloud Platform(trial) account and ES4,
Application-to-Application SSO can not be used. Instead,
Basic Authentication needs to be used.
To add an SSO mechanism, click on the Add button in the SSO Mechanism section:
After clicking the add-button a pop-up will appear, allowing you to enter the SSO mechanism details:
Please find the configuration details below:
||<your ES4 username>
||<your ES4 password>
Note: Please check the prerequisites in the introduction of this tutorial on how to get your ES4 credentials.
After entering the SSO mechanism details, press Save to store them. You should now see that you have 1 SSO Mechanism in your list. Press Save again, to save the back-end connection details.
After saving the connection details, you should see a message toast saying that the configuration details have been saved.
