Enterprise Portal (EP) logon provides a centralized, single point of entry for all users based on logon tickets.

Note: EP logon and SP Nego are not currently supported in S/4 HANA.

EP logon

  1. On the Studio logon screen, click Advanced SAP Logon, and then click the Enterprise Portal tab.
  2. Select the SAP system you want to use.
  3. For credentials, click Credentials, SPNego, or Browser.
  4. In the Portal address box, type the enterprise portal address.
  5. Enter the client number, if the box is not already populated.
  6. Enter the language, if you want.
  7. To confirm the logon ticket information, click Show Ticket.

Use EP logon with the browser

You can use EP logon to enter your password in a browser window only when EP logon is customized for browser use.

EP logons can encounter ticket-fetching problems. To solve these problems, Automate offers four methods.

Start by trying method 1. If method 1 doesn’t work, try method 2, and so on.

Method 1: Use the Legacy Internet Explorer option to log on to the SAP portal

Legacy is the standard method for reading the logon ticket. It uses the session cookies to obtain the ticket.

Method 2: Use the Monitor Internet Explorer option to get the ticket from web browser events

The Monitor method gets the logon ticket from the web browser events instead of from the session cookies.

Method 3: Use the Proxy Internet Explorer option

The Proxy method also depends on reading web events, but it gets the ticket through proxy servers. Depending on your setup, you might need to choose one of the options: Use as Proxy, Ignore Certificate Errors, or Use as Https.

Method 4: Use the Mozilla option

When you use the Mozilla option for the first time, Studio prompts you to download a configuration package and specify its location. On subsequent logons, Studio automatically selects the package from this location and logs on to the appropriate EP Portal.

Note: Internet Explorer may be the only supported browser for accessing the SAP EP Portal. This is because of SAP EP portal and browser compatibility issues with SAP Basis releases. EP is supported with Internet Explorer. There may be issues with Microsoft Edge/Google Chrome if a relevant patch is not installed on the SAP server.

Refer to SAP Note 2226409; it relevant information along with required SAP patches to be implemented.
