3074974 - Certificate Based Authentication is not supported for SOAP based integrations in Integration Center in 1H 2021 release


You are trying to use the Authentication Type = "Client based Authentication" in Integration center with SOAP destination endpoint, but this is not working.

In previous releases, the Certificate based authentication option was enabled for all integration types supported in Integration center.

The SAP team recently realized that although IC UI gives an option to select Certificate based authentication for SOAP based integrations, the backend code does not handle it and if used, it will result in error as authentication will not get established.

We are enhancing the behavior in 2111 release (2H 2021) and this feature will be available for SOAP based integrations after 2111 release.

Please follow the updates in the Whats New Viewer to have more details about this fix/enhancement in future. We will also keep this KBA updated too.
