Error "503 Service Not Available" appears when downloading metadata by using the web dispatcher/proxy host.
e.g. http(s)://<web dispatcher/proxy host>:web dispatcher/proxy port>/sap/saml2/sp/metadata?sap-client=<SAP client>.
The used service to download the metadata is sap/saml2/sp/metadata.
But the error "503 Service Not Available" is NOT occurring for the following scenarios:
- Access the SAML 2.0 configuration UI via URL using the web dispatcher/proxy host .
e.g. http(s)://<web dispatcher/proxy host>:<web dispatcher/proxy port>/sap/bc/webdynpro/sap/saml2?sap-client=<SAP client>
- Downloading the metadata directly via the URL using the application server host.
e.g. http(s)://<application server host>:<application server port>/sap/saml2/sp/metadata?sap-client=<SAP client>.
