In the S/4HANA Digital Transformation journey, Fiori Frontend security is the most crucial aspect in the overall enterprise stratagy. SAML authentication for Fiori is one of the most intresting and popular topic. SAML authentication enables secure authentication and authorization data between parties, in particular, between an identity provider and a service provider. To achieve this, I am delighted to share with you the following white paper that explains to you the following:
- First how to configure Fiori Launchpad using HTTP to support SAML2 using SAP Cloud Identity Provider step-by-step
- Second we discuss how to enable support for HTTPS
- Lastly how to configure Web Dispatcher to support SAML2 and access Fiori Launchpad
In this white paper, the Administrator will find all the steps including screenshots for every step(s) of how the configuration is done.
The white paper is located in the following SAP UX WIKI
Note: If the Administrator is not using SAP Cloud Identity Provider and he/she using its own IDP, the concept remains the same and the process remains the same.
