- You configured your custom SAML Identity Provider according to the product's documentation. You want to deploy the application directly in your SAML IdP "launchpad" (IdP initiated)
- Service Provided initiate works as expected. You connect to your SAP Analytics Cloud tenant and you are redirected correctly to your SAML Identity Provider.
- SAP Analytics Cloud
- SAP SAML 2.0 Identity Provider
Reproducing the Issue
Access IdP Login Portal / Homepage
- Access SAP Analytics Cloud Application
- Observe "HTTP 400 - Bad Request" error when redirected to authn.<region>.hana.ondemand URL
SAP Analytics Cloud does not support Identity Provider initiated SSO yet, due to the missing features on the SAP Cloud Platform:
- The Assertion Consumer Service (ACS), central redirect node (authn.<region>.hana.ondemand) does not support IdP redirection and fails.
- Altering the ACS endpoint in the IdP for SAC could make SSO work (Suggested by SCP documentation and Community), but will fail the SP-initiated flow and the Single Logout (SLO) as well.
- You can raise this requirement on the Customer Influence site for SAP Analytics Cloud
- In some of the other IdP's a simple link can be added to your application in the IdP's launchpad (F5 for example). This will work as expected as the user is already authenticated.
