validity period for a keystore when configuring STS SSO in BO 4.0

Hi All,

If any WEBI report fails to refresh and through BW SSO error then this blog will help to troubleshoot

NOTE:  BO report design should be based on BW and use SSO authentication in OLAP connection

Failure can be happen due to crash of certificate at BW or Keystore expire in BOE CMC< Authentication < SAP or refresh of BW system

After research and interaction with SAP we understood that STS SSO get expire after 365 days.

To avoid these kind of unexpected issues we can specify how long the keystore will remain valid

To specify the validity period while creating a keystore file, use the -validity switch followed by the required period in days.  An example is shown below (using 10 years or 3650 days):

  • keytool -exportcert -validity 3650 -keystore keystore.p12 -storetype pkcs12 -file cert.der -alias MyBOBJAlias

SAP KB – 1920571 for any reference

Thanks & Regards

      Hi SJ,

           Thank you for sharing.

           However,we have tested,and found that the default validity is 10 years,not 1 year in BI 4.1 SP01.
