      For on-premise OData connection, I’m using the URL generated from the SAP Gateway client. And my credentials are correct. I’m getting below errors:

      1. Failed to call remote system on /FPA_JAVA_SERVICES/service/api/epm/odata by Agent HCPService;
      2. Unexpected response from OData driver: {“status”:”403″}

      Note: I’m able to see the data of the OData URL in browser without any authentication. I tried both ways to create connection, but both are giving me the above errors.
