Steps 1

How to use JSPM to install EAR files

Download the EAR file from service market place and copy it to the import directory similar to this: usr/sap/sapmnt/trans/EPS/in.

Start JSPM using additional config parameter. Typically you can find the batch file to start JSPM here: usr/sap/<SID>/J00/j2ee/JSPM/go

-config=/jspm/deployVersionRule=updateAll

-config=/jspm/forceMode=true

step 2

Starting JSPM

Please consider to use the <SID>adm or administrator user. Then choose package type Hotfix and click Next. Select the file to deploy and confirm by clicking Next.

We recommend to remove the EAR file from directory usr/sap/sapmnt/trans/EPS/in after a successful import.

Step 3)

How to use

1)Make the “sap.com/redirect*redirect” policy configuration use your specific authentication protocol (e.g. make it use SPNegoLoginModule or other specific authentication method)

2)Use an alias to access your application e.g. if you want to change the authentication for the Portal, instead of http://<host>:<port>/irj use http://<host>:<port>/redirect. To change the authentication for another application use: http://<host>:<port>/redirect?url=/customapp

As a result, the redirect application will force authentication and then redirect to the initially desired application.

Note: You find the file redirect.ear is applicable on SAP NetWeaver  7.01  and above and redirect_700_640.ear is applicable NetWeaver 6.40, 7.00, 7.01 and 7.02 .

    Hello Brindavan,
    thanks, this application is only linking to applications deplyoed on the portal java stack.

    I think recently more and more external applications won’t let themsselves be called in the portal content area (in the iframe there), e.g. Sharepoint etc.

    I those applications are able to acces SAP (Assertion) Tickets as logon method, BUT don’t like to be called in an iframe, your redirect application would be  a solution if you could provide any custom URL as parameter ; URLencoded if needed.
