SAP HANA Cloud Platform Mobile Services 1.3.1 Release
Hi and Welcome,
Today, I want to quickly update you on the 1.3.1 release. Ingredients are:
- Application-to-Application Single Sign On
- Ignoring case for user name
This does not sound much, but especially the App-2-AppSSO is very useful. Let me explain why.
Application-to-Application Single Sign On
In a full cloud scenario, where your back-end is co-located on HCP you can now directly pass the user identity to your back-end.
Prerequisite for this is the following setup:
The Java application that constitutes our back-end needs to be App2AppSSO enabled. Please refer to this help document for further details: SAP HANA Cloud Platform Help
Of course your HCP account itself needs to be enabled: Simply set “Principle Propagation” to “Enabled” in HCP Cockpit > Trust > Local Service Provider.
This is an account-wide setting.
In the back-end connection settings for a particular mobile App, you can now set “Application-to-Application SSO” for Authentication Type.
Your back-end application does receive the user context now and can react accordingly.

Ignoring case for user name
Simple as it is, we do ignore the case for usernames per default now. This makes integration with ABAP back-end (e.g. Fiori Content Server (FES)) much easier.
