2390710 - Main pages / Stories are not appearing properly in SAP BusinessObjects Cloud when logging in via Apache HTTP Reverse Proxy URL


  • Story cannot be created in SAP BusinessObject Cloud as the toolbar does not appear in the browser correctly.
  • Issue occurs only when logging in using Apache Reverse proxy URL.
  • Similar issue observed in File menu option except that the toolbar appears in the middle of the page.
  • The behavior is not related to browser version or end user rights.


  • SAP BusinessObjects Cloud 2016.21.00

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Log in to your tenant using Apache HTTP Reverse Proxy URL.
  2. Go to Menu > Stories or Menu > Files.
  3. Observe that the Story/Files page does not appear properly.
    I.e. Already created stories are not listed or the toolbar where you can create new story/upload file is missing or placed incorrectly.


Issue is related to the Apache Reverse Proxy configuration:

    • "<Location /saml2/>" and "</Location>" start and end tags are missing in the main config file.


The corresponding part in the configuration file should look like:

<Location /saml2/>
ProxyHTMLEnable on
SetOutputFilter proxy-html
ProxyHTMLCharsetOut *
RequestHeader unset Accept-Encoding
ProxyHTMLURLMap https://<BusinessObjectsCloudTenantServer>:443/sap /sap
ProxyHTMLURLMap http://<HanaServerPath>:<port> /<hanapath>
