This knowledge based article aims to document the typical errors you could see when trying to configure single sign on with HANA Database.

These errors will only become visible after you have switched on all the necessary tracing:

ALTER SYSTEM ALTER CONFIGURATION ('indexserver.ini', 'SYSTEM') set ('trace', 'authentication') = 'debug' with reconfigure;

For HTTP based logins via SAP HANA XS, please execute:

ALTER SYSTEM ALTER CONFIGURATION ('indexserver.ini', 'SYSTEM') SET ('trace', 'authorization') = 'info' WITH RECONFIGURE;

ALTER SYSTEM ALTER CONFIGURATION ('xsengine.ini', 'SYSTEM') set ('trace', 'authentication') = 'debug' with reconfigure;

ALTER SYSTEM ALTER CONFIGURATION ('xsengine.ini', 'SYSTEM') set ('trace', 'xssession') = 'debug' with reconfigure;

ALTER SYSTEM ALTER CONFIGURATION ('xsengine.ini', 'SYSTEM') set ('trace', 'xsauthentication') = 'debug' with reconfigure;

 

2:Reproduce the issue you are seeing for the SSO.

 

3: Turn off tracing with this SQL:

ALTER SYSTEM ALTER CONFIGURATION ('indexserver.ini', 'SYSTEM') UNSET ('trace', 'authorization')  WITH RECONFIGURE;

ALTER SYSTEM ALTER CONFIGURATION ('indexserver.ini', 'SYSTEM') UNSET ('trace', 'authentication');

ALTER SYSTEM ALTER CONFIGURATION ('xsengine.ini', 'SYSTEM') UNSET ('trace', 'authentication');

ALTER SYSTEM ALTER CONFIGURATION ('xsengine.ini', 'SYSTEM') UNSET ('trace', 'xssession');

ALTER SYSTEM ALTER CONFIGURATION ('xsengine.ini', 'SYSTEM') UNSET ('trace', 'xsauthentication');
