Secure Connection Requirements
The mobile iOS app can only connect to URLs that are trusted connections. This includes both intermediary URLs used to log on to the SAP Analytics Clouds system, or live data source connections consumed by stories viewed in the app. For example, if you are using a reverse proxy server to relay requests from the mobile app to SAP Analytics Cloud, and the connection does not satisfy certain requirements, errors may be displayed to the user. To secure your connections:

To test your secure connection, you may want to use a public SSL testing service, for example: https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/. Check the handshake simulation results for Apple ATS.
