3009509 - Error "404 Not Found - You did not enter a valid URL" when trying to access SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC) with SSO enabled to SCP Identity Authentication Service (IAS) hosting on China Data Center

Symptom

  • Error "404 Not Found - You did not enter a valid URL" when trying to access SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC) with SSO enabled to SCP Identity Authentication Service (IAS) hosting on China Data Center

Environment

  • SAP Analytics Cloud (Enterprise)
  • SCP Identity Authentication Service (IAS) hosting on China Data Ceneter

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Try to access SAC tenant hosting on China data center.
    => Error "404 Not Found - You did not enter a valid URL"  appears.

Cause

  • The URL of IAS tenants in region Shanghai (China) was changed (Refer to SAP KBA 3009508):
    • OLD URL: https://<IAS Tenant ID>.accounts.ondemand.com
    • NEW URL: https://<IAS Tenant ID>.accounts.sapcloud.cn
  • However, the new metadata is not imported in SAC, so SAC will still use old URL for authentication, which is not accessibile.

Resolution

According to SAP KBA 3009508, IAS team has fixed the access issue to the old URL, so both new URL and old URL of IAS tenants in region Shanghai (China) can be accessible now.

However, as new host <Tenant ID>.accounts.sapcloud.cn is supported in the future, it is still suggested to update IAS metadata into SAC:

  1. Download the new metadata from IAS side using the URL below: 
    https://<IAS Tenant ID>.accounts.sapcloud.cn/saml2/metadata?action=download

  2. Import the downloaded new metadata into SAC.
