SAP Mobile BI – Import connection for SAP Logon

Read me

SAP BI Mobile Server Single Sign On Support

SSO connections for Mobile BI ClientUsers do not create these connections manually, instead they can directly import these connections from the Configuration Server (MOBIServer)

[In case you are using SUP Legacy connection or SMP Rest connection, have a look at the attached files]


  • Administrator can configure these connections at following location
    • Copy the from default folder in to custom folder (<WebAppsROOT>\MOBIServer\WEB-INF\config\custom)
    • Then modify the file in custom folder
  • Choose your new connection identifier, say we choose ‘mysso‘. Add that to mobi.connections
    • mobi.connections=mysso
  • Choose a display name for your connection
    • mysso.DisplayName=Corporate_BI
  • For any SSO connection the first property that you need to enable is
    • mysso.BOBJ_MOBILE_SSO_ENABLED=true”
  • Configure CMS as follows (It should be noted that this value should match with <id>.aliases properties configured in at mobile server, else you will get MOB00902 error, null is not a valid authentication scheme)
  • Additionally following properties need to be configured
  • If your mobile server is deployed in such a way that a custom application logs on to SAP system and comes back with a logon ticket, in that case the steps for creating a connection would be as follows
  • If your mobile server is deployed in a way to present a FORM to the end user
  • Save the file

Now deploy the MOBIServer again after changes mentioned above. Once done, you can execute the following URL to check if the properties are configured correctly or not


In response, you should be seeing an XML with the configured properties as Key Value Pairs inside connection tag.

      Could you elaborate on how this would be implemented?  Or provide a link to example code?

      Hi Ashutosh,

      I am currently trying to config SAP BI app to work with BI and have a question for you.  what is the difference between the MOBIServer service you reference above and the MobileBIService that I also see?  Until now I have been configuring the MobileBIService.

      MOBIServer is only used as a connection and policy distribution server. An administrator can define connections in MOBIServer ( and this can be imported by users on their mobile devices.

      MobileBIService is the main service. This handles all the requests from Mobile Clients.
