Symptom

  • Does SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC) Support SHA-2 / SHA-256 for SAML SSO Configuration with SAC?
  • What is the difference between SHA2, SHA-2, SHA256, SHA-256 ? Are they all the same thing?

Environment

SAP Analytics Cloud

Resolution

  • As of June 2019, SAP Analytics Cloud, now supports SHA-2 / SHA-256 as a hashing algorithm used in Custom SAML IdP workflows.
  • There is no difference between SHA2 and SHA-2 or SHA256 and SHA-256. However SHA-2 consists of six hash functions, with one of these hash values being 256; therefore SHA-256 is a variant in SHA-2.
