Error: “403 Access Denied” | SAP BW Web Template

Introduction: Recently I worked on a project where we upgraded our WAD components from 3.x to 7x and encountered numerous issues, In this technical blog I have listed one of the interesting issue related to WAD

Problem Statement:Upon upgrading the web templates from 3x to 7x we came across scenarios where customizations were done to call ABAP Class and BSP applications. As we know not all ABAP classes can be used in 7x we replaced them with JAVA scripts and Commands.

In one such instance we had a scenario where the users are to select records in bw report output and these are to be transferred from BW to ECC for further processing via BAPI + trusted RfC connection.

Upon testing we saw the users were able to select records but not able to navigate to next screen for transfer and got error  “403 Access Denied”


Solution: As a solution we had to disable the content filter from ICM within transaction SMICM -> MENU -> GO TO -> HTTP Plugin -> Authorization Handler –> Disable
