3031255 - Unable to create an Import Data Connection via a secured JDBC connection in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC) & SAP Digital Boardroom


The following behaviour occurs in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC):

  • Unable to connect to a SQL Datasource with a secured JDBC connection
  • Unable to create an Import Data Connection when SQL datasource is secured with SSL / CA signed Certificate


  • SAP Analytics Cloud (Enterprise) 2021.1.x

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create an Import Data Connection (Acquired) to a SQL Database via a Secured JDBC Connection
  2. Observe that it is not possible to create the connection 


Currently, when using Import Data Connections, it is not possible to connect to a data source via JDBC when it is secured with a SSL / CA signed certificate. The only Import Data Connection that currently supports this, is HANA (using TLS / CA or self-signed) as of the QRC 1 update of 2021.
